The Guess Who
Who’s penultimate album, 1975's Flavours introduced
former James Gang guitarist Domenic Troiano to the band’s
lineup. Troiano and bandleader Burton Cummings formed a
fruitful writing partnership, pushing The Guess Who forward
in a slightly more progressive direction ("Diggin'
Yourself," "Long Gone"), while simultaneously harkening back
to the eclectic quartet sound of the Randy Bachman era ("Hoe
Down Time," "Loves Me Like A Brother").
Flavours yielded the band's final Top 40 hit, "Dancin'
Fool," yet the album has remained curiously underrated in
the Guess Who canon. Iconoclassic’s definitive edition
provides the perfect opportunity to reassess this lost gem.
As with the previous releases in Iconoclassic’s ongoing
Guess Who reissue series, Flavours features a
definitive new Vic Anesini mastering. Four previously
unreleased studio outtakes present The Guess Who's first
recordings with Domenic Troiano. Flavours includes
extensive liner notes and track-by-track overview by Ralph
Chapman, featuring new interview commentary from the
surviving band members.
