If you like 'American Woman', 'No sugar tonight' and 'No time' (these were the songs that made me buy the album) then you'll like this album. It very much has the flavour of the times in each song here and the comprehensive liner notes put this relatively overlooked band into their deserved perspective - a bit more than a one hit wonder but a band that didn't deal with the 60's to 70's transition successfully.

Led by Burton Cummings and one Randy Bachman, the Guess Who had one enormous worldwide hit single in 1969 ("American Woman" with the short but sweet "No Sugar Tonight" as the double A-side - now that's what you call value) and several minor ones before and after in the States and their home heath of Canada.
This compilation includes both tracks, in their (unnecessary) extended forms, and the best of the rest, which are instantly forgettable. After their six minutes of fame Bachman left, shortly to go into overdrive with Fred Turner, leaving Cummings to continue to plough a lone songwriting furrow that became increasingly concerned with environmental issues and less with what you would call catchy tunes or riffs. There are a couple of exceptions - "Albert Flasher" is 2 mins 25 of joyful boogie, and "Rock and Roller Steam" is what you'd expect from a title of that ilk. All in all, though, this CD is only worth it if you really want to replace your old worn out 7" single.

Bought this for American Woman, didn't disappoint. Other songs pretty good, but they are dated, as you'd expect. Worth it for a trip down memory lane or just a chill out!

I was well impressed with this best of cd,prior to buying it I was not too familiar with the band,so at the price I took a punt on it.It has proved to be a good decision, I find no bad track amongst the selected ones, there is a good mix of musical styles-not all a much of a muchness,The sound quality is good as well-at the price worth the risk!

American Woman was a big hit, No sugar tonight is a good track, a couple of others are decent to listen to, the rest - - - - well they are the rest. Only buy at cheap price if you only want it for the good tracks.
