American Women

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 related to american women:

    It is to be lamented that the principle of national has had very little nourishment in our country, and, instead, has given place to sectional or state partialities. What more promising method for remedying this defect than by uniting American women of every state and every section in a common effort for our whole country.
    Catherine E. Beecher (1800–1878)
