autres.. vous avez ici le super morceaux sombre & guitare lancinante
"Long Gone": génial !

HASH(0x9bfba378) étoiles sur 5 ANOTHER OUTSTANDING JOB BY ICONOCLASSIC !!!!!! 19 juin 2011
Par Lance Lazewski - Publié sur Amazon.com
Format: CD Achat vérifié
A law should be passed that makes Iconoclassic the only company allowed to do re-issues of classic albums !!!! These guys really do know how to do it right, from the outstanding sound to the artwork and to the informative liner notes. I would describe the sound they achieve as listening to a PERFECT pressing of a vinyl lp on the best turntable with the best cartridge. No pops, clicks, warps, surface noise or tracking error. A very warm but still very detailed sound without being overly bright.

An often overlooked GW album (as well as "Power in the Music"). It was the 2nd last studio album with Burton & the first of two with Dominic Troiano on guitar. This brought on a different, more jazz oriented Guess Who sound & one that turned off many long time fans. It wasn't the half stoned in the studio, fun loving "meat & potatos" rock & roll (not that all that was a bad thing). It was an attempt to step up the musical sophistication of the band.

I remember going to see the Guess Who at the CNE in Toronto the summer of 1974. We had heard Don & Kurt were gone & they had a new guitarist that was from "The James Gang". Although replacing two guitars with one, the band managed to sound just as full with Troiano. They opened with "Dirty" (somewhere I have a pretty good sounding cassette recording of that concert). We liked the new sound & the new songs that were played, especially "Dancin' Fool". Flavours came out the following winter.

Although Burton doesn't like the lyrics he wrote for "Dancin' fool", I always thought it was a great tune. It brings to mind a geek at a dance who finally "scores". The first side stays strong with "Hoe down time", "Nobody knows his name" & "Diggin yourself". When it comes to "Seems like I can't live with you ......", thats one that I didn't care for all that much & would often lift the needle after "Diggin Yourself" ended. I always thought it a bit too long for a slower tune. Side 2 starts strong with "Dirty" & ends the same with "long gone" but the two tracks in between (Eye & loves me like a brother) caused me to lose interest a bit. "Eye" was another slow number, although it does end with some really nice jazz stuff from Troiano & "loves me like a brother" is just a little too corny.

The bonus stuff is GREAT !!!! I never knew "Your back yard" & "Roll with the punches" were from that long ago. I always thought of them as being written in the late 70's, along with most of Burton's other solo stuff.

The artwork / liner notes are also superb. There was never much written or said of this album, so its very interesting to hear the "back story" from the various parties !!

To sum it up, probably not my favorite Guess Who album but still a very good one and a must for all fans, especially since it was finally given the proper digital "makeover" by Iconoclassic !!!!!!!!!

Next: "POWER IN THE MUSIC" ....... PLEASE !!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

Like all the Iconoclassic label reissues that I have (most of them being Guess Who albums) this reissue sounds amazing. Not only that, but it includes 4 new bonus tracks. For old fans of this album, the bonus tracks alone are worth buying the CD; especially since this is the first time that the album has been released in America on CD. If you're unfamiliar with the record, it is not typical Guess Who, but more experimental with a few jazzy numbers and even a polka-ish song. The album as a whole is very good, however, and it features great guitar from Domenic Troiano and of course Burton Cummings on vocals and piano.The bonus tracks include 2 completely new songs which have good sound quality, one a ballad-type song in a minor key and the other having an old-time rock n' roll sound to it. The final two bonus songs are early demoes of Burton Cummings solo songs, which feature the current line-up of the band including Domenic Troiano on guitar. Very good versions of those two songs, especially if you're into Burton Cummings first few solo albums. All in all, iconoclassic has done it again--an excellent reissue of a great record. Also, linear notes are expansive, full booklet is included. Highly recommended!

HASH(0x9bfba588) étoiles sur 5 Long awaited release of a GW treasure 4 août 2011

Iconoclassic has done it again. This is a fine remastering of an overlooked gem in the GW catalog. I was surprised when I first heard "Flavours" in 1975, and it took a few listenings to warm up to it, but once I did, I was hooked. I remember reading at the time that Burton Cummings wanted to make a record where no two songs sounded alike, and I believe he and the GW succeeded. Domenic Troiano brought a new level of musicianship to the band, and the rest of the group rises to the occasion. But if you are looking for "These Eyes" or "Clap For The Wolfman", you won't find that kind of songwriting here. The band stretches musical boundaries here, and Troiano's Telecaster and Cummings' voice are the stars. I won't go into the individual tracks, here, as others have already done that. Suffice to say that this is a nice departure from the sound the band had established, but it heralded the end of the band's run on the charts as it was ignored by most GW fans. I wouldn't call this their best record, but it's their most polished and most disciplined. Iconoclassic, as usual, has done a fabulous job of packaging and mastering "Flavours", and while it is a weaker record, I am expecting that the label will do equally as good a job with the band's final record "Power In The Music".

I have to start my review very differently from usual. Let's jump right into it.

What in the WORLD is happening on "Long Gone?" This is like, the most surprising thing ever! The Guess Who and Burton Cummings- normally the band performs with such beauty and compassion but... whatever it occurring on THIS particular song is completely mind-boggling to me. This is a *significantly* heavier version of the Guess Who right here, folks! The intro reminds me quite a bit of the intro from the fusion/rock masters the Mahavishnu Orchestra and their classic "Meeting of the Spirits" from their Inner Mounting Flame masterpiece released in 1971. Being influenced by the Mahavishnu Orchestra of all bands is surprising enough (I NEVER would have suspected the members of the Guess Who were such big fans!) however that's only ONE small element that makes "Long Gone" such a shocker.

The lyrics are incredibly intense and off the wall *angry* beyond description. One line seems to make fun of somebody's intelligence by saying "Who in the hell are you to criticize? You're still learning how to form an opinion" and "I guess you've always been a power hungry speciman" followed up shortly with "I'd gladly give up everything I ever owned just to stab you from behind". WHAT? This isn't the Burton Cummings I've come to admire for his beautiful singing voice- this is a much darker and about ready to explode version of Burton Cummings. The guitar solo... this is NOT the kind of guitar solo you're accustomed to hearing by the Guess Who. This is borderline Judas Priest heaviness here! Meanwhile the rhythm plods along with such intimidating and vengeful intentions. Check out the scorching guitar solo at the end. Are you kidding me?

Now that I've calmed down a little bit (I actually got really worked up there, whoa!) let's review the rest of the material!

"Dirty" is an extremely heavy tune based around a funky rhythm and Burton's vocals once again sounding much different from his usual style. Hard to believe it's the same man who did "American Woman" and "Share the Land". This is some kind of experiment to fit in with the times I believe, because this song wouldn't be out of place on, say, an Aerosmith album. Oh well, I actually love it so no complaints! I'm just amazed how heavy the guitar tone is. "Seems Like I Can't Live With You, But I Can't Live Without You" is a PURE country ballad. Yes that's right- perhaps the most shocking element of Flavours is how it shifts from bitter hatred in "Long Gone" to the funky hard rock of "Dirty" to... this. A believable country ballad. Was I expecting this? Absolutely not! I knew the band was diverse but gee willikers- *this* is the definition of diverse! It's a pretty good song too.

"Hoedown Time" has a sincere vocal melody that actually resembles the classic period of the Guess Who! Finally! Hey I *love* that classic sound, and even though I admire all these experiments on Flavours and the radically different songwriting approach, I can't deny the stretch from Canned Wheat all the way to Road Food is my favorite period of the bands career (and I think most would agree!) Elsewhere a song like "Eye" is sort of eerie in the verse melody and compassionate in the chorus. "Diggin' Yourself" is more mid 70's funk/hard rock, but hey, hearing it from Burton Cummings is pretty darn good so you mine as well enjoy it!

Overall, Flavours isn't quite a classic but it's highly enjoyable.

If you played straight rock and pop in the late 1960s, you landed in the mid-1970s in pretty good shape. The Guess Who did one very compelling psychedelic experiment, "Friend's Of Mine," onWheatfield Soul. Other than this they worked the continuum of rock and roll and high end pop--write good songs and sing and play them well.

Which is why Flavours works: the times may have changed between the Guess Who's start in 1968 and this 1974 album, but except for dropping some fuzz and wha wha on their guitars and a few trippy mannerisms, the Guess Who's sound didn't shift much.

Most of Flavours is well-written, piano based rock, with interesting turns and twists and Burton Cumming's amazing singing. The half spoken, hard rock "Dirty" is the one exception--good but it really doesn't fit the album.

There is no big hit like "American Woman," and no track with a killer hook like "Undone," but this is still brilliantly made, enjoyable work by one of the era's most underrated bands.
