The Guess Who are one of the few legendary classic rock bands that have stood the test of time for many decades. Their music penned mostly by founders Randy Bachman and Burton Cummings are compositions that are played all over the world, every hour, every day, thanks to the undying love and support of their signature tunes like American Woman, Laughing, No Time, Hand Me Down World, These Eyes, etc.
After a string of non-stop hit singles and chart topping albums, RCA Records saluted this great band with their very first 'Greatest Hits' album called The Best Of The Guess Who. This amazing collection grabbed all the hit singles and solid album tracks from their first four albums, and rose to the upper rungs of the pop album charts for weeks throughout 1970 and 1971.
Side One features the classic line-up of Burton Cummings, Randy Bachman, Jim Kale and Gary Peterson, with tunes from their key albums American Woman, Canned Wheat and Wheatfield Soul. Side Two included the Mark II band with Burton Cummings, Jim Kale, Gary Peterson with the addition of the late great Kurt Winter and Greg Leskiw, featuring songs from the groundbreaking Share The Land album.
