“THE GUESS WHO – “These Eyes – (Studio Version)”

07 Jul

​The Guess Who are a Canadian rock band from Winnipeg, Manitoba. Initially gaining recognition in Canada, the group also found international success from the late 1960s through the mid-1970s with numerous hit singles, including “No Time”, “American Woman”, “These Eyes” and “Share the Land”. Several former members of The Guess Who, notably Burton Cummings and Randy Bachman (of Bachman–Turner Overdrive), have found considerable success outside the band. Formed as a garage rock/rhythm and blues group during the rise of British beat,[1] their musical style primarily consisted of pop rock,[2] blues rock,[3] psychedelic rock[4] and hard rock.[5]

The band was inducted into The Canadian Music Hall of Fame in 1987.[6] In 2002, Randy Bachman, Burton Cummings, Garry Peterson, Donnie McDougall and Bill Wallace received the Governor General’s Performing Arts Award for Lifetime Artistic Achievement, Canada’s highest honour in the performing arts, for The Guess Who’s contribution to popular music in Canada.[7]

    I’m Australian but I married a Canadian who is very familiar with The Guess Who and has introduced me to a lot of their music! My current favourite is “Soul Suite”

    I bet you’ve introduced him to a lot of rockin’ Australian music as well. AOC will definitely venture into more of “Guess Who.” And, thank you Dining Diaries for the raincheck! Have a beautiful week!

    You spent a lot of time and attention to a number of hits from rock’s “golden days!” I did too. Another great pick…thanks so much for the memories.
