REUPPED Easily, The Guess Who’s most underrated release. It’s a historically unpopular Guess Who LP that, its been pointed out, isn’t really #10 at all. But, putting all that aside (until comments), this set is a surprisingly organized album with sharp musical instincts and some pretty solid melodies which, somehow… simply missed its audience. There’s variety here, and it’s been suggested that both “Lie Down” & “Take It Off My Shoulders” are a result of Burton Cummings’ fascination with Elton John’s countrified Tumbleweed Connections. The band rocks hard on the densely packed “Musicione,” but what got all the attention was the radio-aimed “Glamour Boy,” a broad Cummings indulgence (like Ray Davies’ “Celluloid Heroes”), but with a killer melody nonetheless. GW kept #10‘s inside jokes and non-musical shenanigans to a minimum (kind of welcomed, actually) but the irreverence still seeps in everywhere. How many otherwise serious songs would open with a line like ‘Have a disease free summer in Asia?’ “Just Let Me Sing” is clearly from the “So Long, Bannatyne” mold, and there’s really not a bad track on the album… just no standouts. Still, #10 is a remarkably consistent Guess Who release and why it didn’t crack the American public’s consciousness is probably explained by their next big hit a year later, “Clap For The Wolfman.” With #10 The Guess Who tried to go straight, but US radio only wanted to play their goofball shit. This re-up is the 2012 reissue, with better sound, a bonus track and some fantastic, pull-no-punches liner notes (included, or click each page for a pop-up enlargement). Find it at Amazon, HERE.
