The Guess Who
Flavours

The Guess 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.
