Guess Who

While the Guess Who did have several hits in America, they were superstars in their home country of Canada during the 1960s and early '70s. The band grew out of vocalist/guitarist Chad Allan (born Allan Kobel) and guitarist Randy Bachman's Winnipeg-based group Chad Allan and the Expressions, originally known as first the Silvertones and then the Reflections. The remainder of the lineup featured bassist Jim Kale, pianist Bob Ashley, and drummer Garry Peterson. The Expressions recorded a cover of Johnny Kidd and the Pirates' "Shakin' All Over" in 1965, which became a surprise hit in Canada and reached the U.S. Top 40. When the Expressions recorded an entire album of the same name, its record company, Quality, listed their name as "Guess Who?" on the jacket, hoping to fool record buyers into thinking that the British Invasion-influenced music was actually by a more famous group in disguise. Ashley had been replaced by keyboardist/vocalist Burton Cummings, who became lead vocalist when Allan departed in 1966. The Guess Who embarked on an unsuccessful tour of England and returned home to record commercials and appear on the television program Let's Go, hosted by Chad Allan. However, further American success eluded the Guess Who until the 1969 Top Ten hit "These Eyes"; the recording session for the accompanying album, Wheatfield Soul, was paid for by producer Jack Richardson, who mortgaged his house to do so. Canned Wheat Packed by the Guess Who produced three Top 40 singles later that year. In 1970, the Guess Who released the cuttingly sarcastic riff-rocker "American Woman," which, given its anti-American putdowns, ironically became their only U.S. chart-topper. The album of the same name became their first U.S. Top Ten and first gold album, and the group performed for President and Mrs. Nixon and Prince Charles at the White House. (Pat Nixon requested that "American Woman" be dropped from the set list.)

Trouble was brewing on the horizon, though. Guitarist Bachman, having recently converted to Mormonism, took issue with the band's typical rock & roll lifestyle, leading to clashes with Cummings. Finding the atmosphere unbearable, Bachman left the group in July 1970 and formed Brave Belt with Chad Allan, which later evolved into Bachman-Turner Overdrive. His place in the Guess Who was taken by Kurt Winter and Greg Leskiw, and the title track from their next album, "Share the Land," climbed into the Top Ten later that year, and several more singles charted afterwards. The group returned to the Top Ten one last time in 1974 with the novelty single "Clap for the Wolfman," featuring dialogue by deejay Wolfman Jack. Burdened by shifting personnel and loss of direction, Cummings broke up the band in 1975 and tried a solo career. The lineup from the Guess Who's glory years reunited in 1983, and a version of the group with constantly shifting musicians (occasionally original members) continues to tour. ~ Steve Huey, Rovi

It's the time of the season for loooovin.... . . .
Great version of this song.
why do Pandora and regular radio stations leave off the last two lines of American Woman? goodbye American chick; goodbye American broad. I know it's political correctness, but at the time it wasn't bad. It's part of the times as they were. You can't re-write history - or can you?

Best version of shakin all over, hands down.
I ain't got NO TIME to listen to this crap. Only kidding, My Canned Wheat album is totaled from constant playing in the old days. Now I pick me bum.
The better version
docbil05
just so you know this is not and never was a Beatles song, and as a matter of fact this was never a Hit by the Guess Who on the American charts. They are covering a chart topper by The Zombies, a very good British band of the day that made this song Classic in the real sense. I love the Guess Who and Bto for all the more original material like Laughing and These Eyes and Amer woman etc.. They made many Friday nite Midnight Specials really memorable.Da Wolfman Loves Ya, Baby!
Shut up, steve89615.
Cummins has a great voice.
flippin poseurs
love it!!!!!
why isn't the greatest of the guess who in the selected discography
Love this song! Brings back lots of memories when I was in college! Sigh...... those were such great times.
60s youth had an inclination to listen to rock-n-roll over earlier songs. 60s songs brought unity amongst people. Songs sung by the early Beatles stood for something important in our lives. Some songs stood for drug experimentat i o n , sexual exploration, termination of the Viet Nam War, but most songs were about peace and love to the world. Many songs sung by 60s pop stars encouraged a stage of rebellion by young America against war, segregation, racism, sexism, and the establishmen t .
