Offered for sale is a still sealed early U.S. pressing of Canned Wheat by the Guess Who.
About this copy: This copy of Canned Wheat is an early U.S. issue. It may be a first pressing or a second pressing; we’re not sure. This copy has a blue banner on the cover hyping the song, “Laughing.” Some copies had a red banner, but we’re not sure which pressing came first.
As the album is still sealed, the record is presumably new and unplayed.
The wrap is fully intact with no rips, tears, or holes.
A beautiful copy of a terrific LP.
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.
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.
