THE GUESS WHO – Canadians Rock “American Woman” And Hits In Texas

With a notorious musical career that spans decades, The Guess Who is a rock band of all genres. Originating in Winnipeg, Manitoba, Canada, in 1966, The Guess Who would grow from their hometown of Winnipeg to Saskatchewan where they constantly crossed paths with artists such as Joni Mitchell and Neil Young. While the band made continuous strives in Canada, releasing top 40 hits such as “Clock on the Wall” and “His Girl,” it wasn’t until they became the house band for the CBC radio show, “The Swingers,” and the CBC television show, “Let’s Go,” in 1967 that they were able to reach a larger Canadian crowd, giving them the exposure they really needed.

With works for Coca-Cola under their belt and an LP called “A Wild Pair,” The Guess Who was setting the stage for international stardom. In 1969, The Guess Who released the album “Wheatfield Soul” along with the ballad “These Eyes,” which became the group’s first top 10 U.S. hit. It sold over a million copies and was awarded the gold disc by the Recording Industry Association of America. Read More
