The Guess Who - So Long BannatyneThe Guess Who - So Long Bannatyne

The Guess Who proved they could weather a significant personnel change with 1970ís triumphant Share The Land. The 1971 follow-up, So Long, Bannatyne saw the band branching out, embracing more eclectic and less polished and commercial material, much of it with a considerably darker hue than the bandís earlier material and heavily influenced by John Lennonís visceral Plastic Ono Band.

A fascinating lyrical continuity emerges that reveals a band and its principal writers burdened by success, cynical, tormented; the result being a kind of ad hoc concept record centering around themes of desperation, anger, disillusionment and resignation, topics frontman Burton Cummings would continue to explore throughout the rest of The Guess Whoís lifespan.
