Great accumulation of some of their music over the years. Very good orchestration. My very special of the bunch was always "Undone", and I was not disappointed in hearing it rerecorded...just as fantastic now as it was. The group may have "come undone", but their music never will.

Format: Audio CD
This Canadian rock band was the first to hit no. 1 in the US charts (American woman) in 1970 after having been noted by the 4 excellent melodic tracks (These eyes became a standard) that precede it on this compilation. After friction in the band they produced good tracks (tracks 7 to 15) with Albert Flasher as the rockiest, Follow your daughter calypso-influenced and Running back recorded live.
The last 3 are again of the high standard of the first 5: Star baby rocks, Clap for the wolfman was the big hit and Dancin'fool a nice end to 5 years of hitmaking.

Guess Who's Sounding Better Than Ever On 1999 Greatest Hits 22 Mar 2001
By Anthony G Pizza - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Audio CD
Despite losing immediacy 30 years later (the Guess Who's first hits collection was released in 1971, near their artistic and commercial peak), RCA/BMG's remastered 1999 "Greatest Hits" is the clearest-sounding, most generous one-disc set from the classic Canadian rock group.
Bill Lacey, credited here with "audio restoration," successfully freshens and brightens the group's familiar, diverse string of 1969-70 hits: the lush ballad "These Eyes," the jangly "Laughing," and 1970's superb two-sided hit "No Time"/"Undun," showing off lead guitarist Randy Bachman's respective jazzy and heavy rock guitar styles. Then again, few songs have aged more poorly than the clumsy protest anthems "Share The Land," "Hand Me Down World," and the pretentious, Psalm-quoting "Hang On To Your Life." (Michael Hill's well-researched liner notes show the group craving the FM radio cache' these message songs brought.)
While most attention went to songwriters/group leaders Bachman and Burton Cummings, the remastering plays up Garry Patterson's surprisingly assured drumming on "No Sugar Tonight/New Mother Nature" and the Guess Who's signature hit, the #1 "American Woman." (This CD features the rarely-heard acoustic intro missing from the 1971 best-of).
The CD's second half covers the period from Bachman's 1971 exit to the original Guess Who's 1975 breakup. Their studio output here was less interesting or successful, but highlights included 1973's bright "Star Baby," the bouncy "Albert Flasher," the moving pro-ecology "Guns, Guns, Guns," and late 1974's jaunty 50s rock tribute "Clap For The Wolfman." But you also get the deservedly obscure "Heartbroken Bopper" and their sorry group-written reggae try, "Follow Your Daughter Home."
Longtime fans may have invested in the two-disc anthology "Track Record" or the group's CD reissues on RCA's Buddha label. But this Guess Who "Greatest Hits" offers superior sound, and enough of it, to be a definitive value for casual listeners and anyone enjoying late-60s classic rock oldies.

Burton Cummings was Certainly an Underrated Vocalist!!! 14 Feb 2006
By D. Hawkins - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Audio CD
When one mentions the best rock singers of all time, how come Burton Cummings' name doesn't come up? All the evidence exists on this disc that he was one hell of a singer, delivering some of the greatest vocals to some of the greatest songs ever. Perhaps because The Guess Who was seen as a Top 40 group has kept him from his due? Let's start with one of the top three songs ever put to tape, "These Eyes." This masterpiece has all the ingredients of a timeless song - moving bass line, masterful strings, catchy rhythm, and the pained vocal stylings of Burton. Elsewhere, he shines on "Undun," "No Time," and elevates the standard "American Woman" to legendary, something that Lenny Kravitz had no chance of doing. Kudos to the compilers of this for going with the full length version of "American Woman" - the intro is absolutely essential to its impact. I don't forsee The Guess Who ever making it to the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame, but let's at least recognize one of the greatest voices in rock and letting these timeless tunes wash over us in AM ecstasy!!

Finally, all the GW best on one disc 14 Dec 2000
By Brian D. Rubendall - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Audio CD
For many years, The Guess Who have been represented by a series of incomplete anthology albums. "The Best of the Guess Who" for example had all of the great Randy Bachman era tracks, but ignored later classics like "Star Baby" and "Clap For the Wolfman." Then there was "The Greatest of the Guess Who" which included those latter two but inexplicably dropped "No Sugar Tonight/New Mother Nature." Now all those great songs are finally together in one place. The Guess Who achieved a kind of hard rock artistry during Bachman's tenure and and level of successful campiness later on in their career. The two styles are quite different, and the highlights of each are all here. Any fan of classic rock should own this album.

The [ALMOST] perfect collection 21 Dec 2004
By Chad Ouimette - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Audio CD
In 1999, we saw the release of another Guess Who compilation, but upon closer inspection, this album was essentially the total package, containing every hit you could ever have wanted, and if you only had merely a passing interest in the band, you needn't even try to look for their original albums. And it was a hard search.

This compilation may very well be the most complete and perfect collection of any band's greatest hits CDs ever produced. Plain and simple: many bands have greatest hits collections, and pretty much all of them are flawed in some way. I mean it's true you cannot please everyone but as far as GUESS WHO GREATEST HITS goes, like I said above it is the [almost] perfect collection. What do I mean by this? Check it out:

Where is "Glamour Boy"? I'm sure quite a few would agree that this song is worthy of being included here. I know ANTHOLOGY has the single version, but it wouldn't have been too hard to stick the album version on here, as most of these tracks are around the 2-4 minute mark anyway. The other matter is I would have enjoyed seeing "Shakin' All Over" but that was a different era for the band, and it's OK with me they chose to focus on the Burton Cummings material, as it is the superior choice.

In addition to the plethora of great songs you have in the liner notes a great bio of the band that chronicles it's activities from it's earliest beginings to their final show (without Bachman) in Fall of 1975. I don't own any other GW compilations so I can't say if any of the others have a bio, they probably do, but since this is the only compilation I will own, it makes an [almost] 99.9 % perfect compilation. Of all the compilations out there, consider this one seriously as deserving of your money. 15/18

GUESS WHO'S THE BEST?... 18 Oct 2005
By Jukebox Dave - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Audio CD
THE GUESS WHO-GREATEST HITS: For the Guess Who fan that craves a near perfect collection of ALL their radio staples, plus just a tad more, this is the one to beat. More comprehensive than THE GREATEST OF THE GUESS WHO or THE BEST OF THE GUESS WHO, yet not as longwinded as their double disc anthology, this 18 track sampler includes all the Randy Bachman era biggies as well as the later Kurt Winter gemstones. Keyboardist/lead belter Burton Commings emotes with arena rock ferocity on righteous ravers NO TIME and AMERICAN WOMAN, yet croons with unbridled passion when needed on THESE EYES and LAUGHING. He also contributes snazzy flute to B-side-gone-smash UNDUN, on which Bachman adds delicate axe colorings, much as he did later on B.T.O.'s jazzy LOOKIN' OUT FOR NUMBER ONE. Even the last gasp hits (STAR BABY, CLAP FOR THE WOLFMAN, DANCIN' FOOL) are good ones, and in between you get the singalong shoe-ins SHARE THE LAND and HAND ME DOWN WORLD, not to mention cautionary tales such as FOLLOW YOUR DAUGHTER HOME and GUNS, GUNS, GUNS. Though lacking thier first chartbuster SHAKIN' ALL OVER, one spin of THE GUESS WHO'S GREATEST HITS will make readily apparent why they are truly one of Canada's most important exports.

RATING: FIVE GUESSES
