The Guess Who - 1973-11-10 - Ontario Motor Speedway, Ontario, CA

The Guess Who
1973-11-10
Ontario Motor Speedway, Ontario, CA

Audience recording, good quality
Available in both Lossless (FLAC) and Mp3 (320 kbps) versions

Here's another great old Guess Who show that I've only recently acquired in good quality. This was from still in their prime, 1973, while guitarists Kurt Winter and Donnie MacDougall were still with the band, on the tour supporting their 1973 albums (Artificial Paradise and #10), but also featuring a couple new songs that would appear on their subsequent (Road Food-1974) album. By this time, the band was no longer churning out hit singles, but still had solid albums, and their live shows were consistently great, with songs from throughout their career, and featuring the greatest rock vocalist of all time, Burton Cummings, in all his glory.
As I've said before, any decent quality recording of this great band (and there aren't very many) is worth having, sharing, and celebrating, and this one includes a couple songs not heard in many other shows.  Although certainly not a great recording, it's actually pretty good for an audience recording of that time, and certainly very listenable, and the band's performance is a joy.
