The Guess Who seemed to have pulled a rabbit out of a hat as they crafted their follow-up release to the best-selling album American Woman. The band had replaced Randy Bachman with two very capable guitarists in Kurt Winter and Greg Leskiw. Kurt came with the added benefit of having written some great tunes with his pervious band Brother. Burton Cummings and Kurt also brought a new songwriting partnership to the group and they provided excellent materiel to the group for this release.
The first single “Hand Me Down World” set the stage for the album which was the band’s most successful seller at the time of release. Follow-up singles “Share the Land” and “Hang On to Your Life” kept the band firmly on the charts for the duration of the album’s release.
In-depth liner notes by Guess Who authority Ralph Chapman (Metal Evolution, Rush: Beyond the Lighted Stage) draw on commentary from the group gleaned from personal interviews. Remastered by Vic Anesini and including bonus tracks from the time period of the album’s initial release.
