Album Review

Winnipeg native Burton Cummings is perhaps best known from his days as the lead singer/songwriter for the legendary Guess Who. From his days with the Guess Who to his successful solo career, Cummings managed to make himself something of a Canadian icon. This debut solo album, originally released on the Portrait label in 1976, produced a number of hits for Cummings including "I'm Scared," and "Stand Tall" along with a big-band version of Bachman-Turner Overdrive's "You Ain't Seen Nothin' Yet." This album was remastered by legendary engineer Bill Inglot and contains two new bonus tracks from Cummings' extensive library that were not included on Cummings himself, and all of the song lyrics accompany this remastered version of the album.

Customer Reviews

I love this stuff

I have been listening to Burton since I was 10 years old....a long time ago. His voice has gotten better and better through the years. The song "I'm Scared" is his most poignant...a real admission that he is no longer the cigarette smoking front man in The Guess Who. His piano playing is terrific and his energy is deeper, more creative and fun to listen to. A great tape to work out to. Enjoy it!

Rockin' Jazz

Burton Cummings is a stand alone talent in a category all his own. A timeless classic, this album could have been cut yesterday. "I'm Scared" is raw, heartfelt emotion; "Stand Tall" is an inspiration; and "Niki Hoeky" is just plain fun. I first discovered this album 25 years ago and was impressed that I-Tunes added it to the list. Great tunes for the road.

Ditto TOMMY!!! Mom's are the best!

My mom got me into this album when I was 6-7-8 years old. The songs are so burned in my brain that listening to this is incredible. The songs are fantastic on many levels. What a voice he has... Must have for any one from the 70's and enjoying a great album of road music! r.keeley
