If you thought that The Guess Who’s sole claim to fame was the absurdly excellent jukebox hit “American Woman” then this Anthology will mark your card. Cruising out of Anglophile Winnipeg, Manitoba, the band covered so many bases?from British beat-a-like to sunny-soft rock and battle-of-the-bands hoedown?that they turned professional entertainment into gold. Mainman Randy Bachman was always in overdrive, but once Burton Cummings usurped him in 1970 the, er, Who broadened their rock’n’roll allegiance to encompass power pop like “Runnin’ Back To Saskatoon” and the creepy “Follow Your Daughter Home”.
