reminds me of friday nights listening to albums with my Dad. Reading the words while listening to him sing this song was something I'll never forget. I have my kids knowing every word to this song and the meaning of it. What an amazing songwriter!

A great and unique voice, The Guess Who was huge in the late 60's & early 70's.

The movie Burton was in is 'Melanie.' Burton has been my favorite singer since I discovered The Guess Who back in the 70's. Saw them perform once in Green Bay, again when members of the band reunited for the American Woman Tour in 2001 in Moline and Milwaukee. I told my husband I was too old to scream, but when they came out onstage, it was teeny-bopper time all over again! Fantastic performances , all!! Last saw Burton perform in Milw. 1 1/2 years ago. Have the towel he threw at the end!

Burton had a huge solo career in Canada and eventually released a double album of greatest hits. These days he tours with fellow Guess Who alum Randy Bachman (BTO), as Bachman Cummings.

I am impressed with Pandora's bios, but this one is woefully short. Also, for some reason the song Dream shows the lyrics to Dream of a Child. ???

saw burton at the Keswick near philly 2012. While it was phenomenal to hear songs I thought i'd never hear from the original artist he seemed bored , forgot lyrics and kept spouting anger and frustration with the touring Guess Who band.

One of purest voices Rock and Roll has ever known and a genuinely nice guy.

One doesn't hear quality voices like this much anymore, especially with a great backing band. I have all his albums and even read his blogs.. Yikes.
