You know what the difference is between a twelve year old in 1970 and an eighteen year old in 1970? One minute and thirteen seconds of the Guess Who's "America Woman". The younger kids heard a radio mix on AM radio. Their older stoner cousins heard it on free form FM radio, with the long introduction that may or may not have been needed. It really isn't as enjoyable as the riffage that follows, but it is effective as an build-up. For eighteen year old stoner cousins, I guess.
These guys were right on the cusp, in 1966 with their "Shakin' All Over" smack dab in the AM Boss Radio era, and "American Woman" straddling both AM and FM in 1970. If you asked me if I was a Guess Who fan, I'd shrug. But, shit, it was good to hear these again.
