American Woman is the sixth and most succesful studio album by Canadian rock band The Guess Who. It is the last album which features lead guitarist Randy Bachman. He brings some of the best guitar riffs the band has ever recorded, especially on the hit single "American Woman", later successfully covered by Lenny Kravitz. The times of war (Vietnam) are prominent on the album and their anger can be heard in songs like "No Time" and "No Sugar Tonight". The blues and rhythms are mixed with their hard rocking guitar riffs and drum rolls, but a songs like "Talisman" is pure folk in the traditional English style. All by all, it's their best work and it showed their development in the variety of music.
The Canadian rock band The Guess Who found international success during the late 1960s until the mid-1970s. They were formed as a garage rock band and changed during the years to a more psychedelic and pop rock approach.
