American Woman is the seventh album by Canadian rock band The Guess Who, released in 1970. It peaked at #9 on the Billboard Pop Albums charts. It stayed on the charts for over a year and was their most successful release.
In addition to the title cut (the group's most successful song), this album also includes a remake of "No Time", a song the group previously recorded for Canned Wheat; the new version is the one most familiar to listeners.
This was guitarist Randy Bachman's last finished album with the group until a reformation effort in 1983.
American Woman was re-mastered and released on CD by Buddah Records in 2000 and included a bonus track, "Got to Find Another Way". A Quadraphonic mix was available on the Quadraphonic 8-track cartridge format.
Also in 2000, Lenny Kravitz covered "American Woman" for which he won Best Male Rock Vocal Performance at the 42nd Grammy Awards.

Famous quotes containing the words women and/or american:
“The first full-fledged generation of women in the professions did not talk about their overbooked agenda or the toll it took on them and their families. They knew that their position in the office was shaky at best. . . . If they suffered self-doubt or frustration . . . they blamed themselveseither for expecting too much or for doing too little.”
—Deborah J. Swiss (20th century)
“The white American man makes the white American woman maybe not superfluous but just a little kind of decoration. Not really important to turning around the wheels of the state. Well the black American woman has never been able to feel that way. No black American man at any time in our history in the United States has been able to feel that he didnt need that black woman right against him, shoulder to shoulderin that cotton field, on the auction block, in the ghetto, wherever.”
—Maya Angelou (b. 1928)
