A nice copy of a rare Guess Who LP, as the band’s albums sold quite poorly in Japan.

Background: Released in 1969, Canned Wheat was the fifth album by the Guess Who, and their second album for RCA.

The album only reached #91 on the U.S. album charts, but produced two singles – “Laughing,” which reached #1 on the U.S. charts, and “Undun,” which reached #21.

The album also includes the original version of “No Time,” which would be released as a single the following year with a new recording on the American Woman album. gave Canned Wheat a 4 1/2 star review:

As far as late-’60s and early-’70s rock bands go, the Guess Who has been both blessed and cursed. Blessed because their songs are still played quite frequently on oldies radio stations, cursed because they’re only remembered for those songs. Truth be told, the Guess Who was a darn good rock band: Burton Cummings’s great rock & roll voice — similar in power to Bad Company’s Paul Rodgers — keeps even the most overdone Guess Who song fresh, and Randy Bachman’s underrated guitar work always serves the song’s needs. … Canned Wheat still sounds incredibly fresh, a product from the heyday of classic rock. For those who want to dig beneath the band’s “oldie” status to find the real thing, this album shouldn’t be missed.
