HASH(0x8e154b40) étoiles sur 5 another great remastering job by Buddah 31 décembre 2000
Par Steve Marshall - Publié sur
Format: CD
Canned Wheat was The Guess Who's second album for RCA, containing the hits "Laughing" and "Undun." It also included the original version of "No Time," later re-recorded for the American Woman album. The later version is the one that you're familiar with. The original has an extended intro and outro, plus a different guitar solo by Randy Bachman. Musically, this was always my least favorite album of the band's catalog. Still, there are quite a few tracks worth mentioning (besides the hits).
"Old Joe" is one of the better tunes on Canned Wheat, featuring a theme that would show up later on "Those Show Biz Shoes," a song from the band's Artificial Paradise album. Another highlight on the CD is "Of a Dropping Pin." Originally recorded during the band's ill-fated London sessions, this version is a bit more polished than the earlier one. The album's centerpiece is the ambitious, 11-minute "Key." Reminiscent of Buffalo Springfield's "Bluebird," the song gives everyone in the band the chance to stretch out a bit--especially drummer Garry Peterson, who turns in an extended solo.
There were a couple production problems on Canned Wheat. Several copies of the CD were pressed and released with a different bonus track ("Miss Frizzy") instead of the one that was listed on the jewel box ("Species Hawk"). Unfortunately for the collectors out there, there's no way to tell which 'version' of the CD you're getting until you put it in your CD player. The other problem concerns the way the songs are tracked. Five of the songs have 'interludes' before them. In every instance, these 'interludes' are part of the previous song on the CD. None of this affects the music in any way, as long as you're listening to the CD from start to finish. The problem only occurs when you try to go to a specific track.
It's great to see these albums finally getting the treatment they deserve. Aside from the minor production problems mentioned above, the folks at Buddah have done a great job with the recent reissues from The Guess Who. The sound quality has been superb (far surpassing the original vinyl), and the packaging has been outstanding (with new liner notes, photos, and bonus tracks). All they need to do now is release the rest of the band's RCA catalog.

HASH(0x8d6c572c) étoiles sur 5 Great Canadian Praries Rock 22 avril 1999
Par Un client - Publié sur
Format: CD
A definite original! The songwriting style of Bachman & Cummings couldn't have come out of anywhere but the Canadian midwest. The sometimes nieve (or maybe just young) lyrics and fresh/clean instrumentation combine with melodies an artist of any genre would be proud of.
The marathon KEY (the one with the obligatory drum solo)is still interesting to listen to thirty years later and has definitely aged better than FRIENDS OF MINE from Wheatfield Soul. The musical styling is more diverse and the lyrics both poetic and insightful without being overly preachy.
The album ends with some really tasty guitar styling by Randy Bachman in FAIR WARNING. A tune with a message as relevent today as thirty years ago.

HASH(0x8e1540f0) étoiles sur 5 gems amidst the clutter 6 septembre 2002
Par Un client - Publié sur
Format: CD
Most of the songs on this album aren't very exciting, but the few exceptions make it very worthwhile. "Of A Dropping Pin" is an undiscovered gem that sounds somewhat like fast-paced Moody Blues songs, "Undun" is generally considered by musicians to be one of this group's best, and I much prefer this alternative version of "No Time" because the strummed acoustic guitar chords are clearer, the guitar solo is extended, and the ending is more climactic than in the Top 40 version of early 1970.

HASH(0x8db8b1d4) étoiles sur 5 Classic late 60's guitar rock 16 août 2001
Par Brian D. Rubendall - Publié sur
Format: CD
"Canned Wheat" is probably the best of the Guess Who's original albums. It contains the singles "No Time" (In an extended version), "Laughing" and "Undun," as well as a number of fairly strong guitar laden album tracks. The song "Key" stretches out to over eleven minutes, but still manages to be worthwhile. The only clunker is the awful "Fair Warning," that comes along at the end like a bad acid trip, but is mercifully held to less than two minutes. At their best during this, the Randy Bachman period, the Guess Who were worthy competition for Creedence Clearwater Revival and mined some of the same musical and political ground. They only lack CCR's consistantly great songwriting. "Canned Wheat" is no "Green River," but it's still a worthwhile listen.

HASH(0x8db8b21c) étoiles sur 5 Great... On So Many Levels 28 juillet 2013
Par Peter Felknor - Publié sur
Format: CD
I was raised on classical music (via my father) and rhythm & blues (via my mother, a former nightclub singer from the Missouri Bootheel). I didn't really know what to make of rock n' roll when I first heard it, although the Elvis and Little Richard records my babysitter favored reminded me more than a little of the music my mother loved and sang around the house. And I still love the classical music my dad played on the piano.

But with that background, I didn't know what to think of the Beatles and the Rolling Stones when they hit the big time. It was okay, and kind of exciting, but not exciting in the way that Little Richard was. You could say that Beatlemania passed me by.

My next big musical influence was the older brother of a middle-school friend of mine, and he was by far the most subversive. Billy introduced me to Jefferson Airplane, the Who, Jimi Hendrix, the Doors, and (especially) Pink Floyd, which at that time were transitioning from their Syd Barrett era into their classic David Gilmour phase. This was music unlike anything I'd ever heard; it was unpredictable, wild, and more than a little dangerous. You could say that it was the perfect blend of the edge of early R&B and the no-holds-barred approach of composers like Beethoven and Janacek.

This is a long intro, I know, but it's necessary in explaining why "Canned Wheat Packed By The Guess Who" stands up today as one of the most brilliant rock recordings I have ever heard.

Billy didn't introduce me to the Guess Who, and would have probably thought them lame (not "dangerous" enough). But you would have had to have been deaf to escape their first two American hit singles ("These Eyes" and "Laughing") on top-40 radio in the upper Midwest. "Canned Wheat" was the first Guess Who album I bought, largely because Burton Cummings sounded to me like a singer on the verge of losing his mind--a Canadian Jim Morrison, if you will. I liked the faintly jazzy music, too. There was something disquieting about the Guess Who, and that was enough for me to shell out $3.49 for an album I knew next to nothing about except that it contained the hit Laughing! (the big banner on the cover made sure I didn't miss that fact).

From the original version of "No Time" (the later hit single version from "American Woman" was tame and boring by comparison) to the tongue-in-cheek jazz sign-off "Fair Warning," there's not a wasted moment on this album. Most of the fireworks are centered around guitarist Randy Bachman--yes, THAT Randy Bachman--and drummer Garry Peterson, who together make the whole outing sound like jazz from another planet. At the time there was NOTHING in rock (with the possible exception of Pink Floyd) that showed this level of musical adventurousness and willing to throw caution to the wind. Check out the raga-esque interplay between Bachman and Peterson on the narcotic "Six AM or Nearer"--Bachman plays chord clusters near the end that took me fifteen years to figure out. Or the highly tonal drum solo on "Key" (one of the few extended drum solos I can think of that still holds up today).*

The more classic rock forays, such as "No Time" and "Of a Dropping Pin," are underpinned by Randy Bachman's obvious fascination with Indian music and an underlying drone, which he uses to much more telling effect than just about any of his contemporaries including George Harrison (sorry, Beatles fans). There is straight-out jazz like Bachman's "Undun" (with an excellent piano intro by Cummings), and pleasant pop tunes too ("Minstrel Boy" and "Old Joe"). And of course, the monster hit "Laughing," which just might be the most forgettable song on the album... for all that it's a great song.

Strangely, after all these years, I also hear many suggestions of The Band in the Guess Who's Bachman-era output. I chalk this up to a Canadian thing, the empty and endless miles of prairie roadways both groups traveled on their path to fame and fortune. When coupled with the obvious musical virtuosity of the Guess Who, it's a haunting and unforgettable experience. Bachman's extended guitar outro on "Key" encapsulates for me the lonely splendor of the Canadian West.

There is really nothing else in the rock canon quite like "Canned Wheat Packed By The Guess Who," and if you are seriously into music, you should look past any prejudices about the Guess Who being a "singles band" or the later membership of Bachman in BTO and pick this up right away. Hopefully my historical ramblings will have helped to convince you.

*I once met Garry Peterson at Warner Park in Madison, Wisconsin, and told him how impressed I was with his drum solo on "Key." "Good thing we got that on vinyl when we did," Peterson laughed. "I doubt if I could play it now."
