Product Description


The fourth solo album by the Guess Who front man, released in 1980, marked the end of his relationship with Columbia and Epic Records, after Cummings was told to change some songs and sweeten others to better the disc's chances as an international release. Cummings refused, choosing to keep the album as he envisioned it while dooming it to limited availability as a Canada-only release. Despite these conditions--and aided by the radio success of "Fine State of Affairs" and the ballad "Heavenly Blue"--the disc became his fourth to go platinum. While the production leans heavily on the technology of the day, there's evidence of his Guess Who grit in tracks like "It's Hard" and in his delivery of "Woman Love," a Cummings personal favourite that had been a hit for Gene Vincent in 1965. This remastered release benefits from expanded packaging, improved sound quality, and the inclusion of two previously unreleased bonus tracks. --Eric Wilson

5.0 out of 5 stars Burton's Best April 14 2006
By A Customer
Format:Audio CD
Quite simply, this is the best Burton solo album. Sure...I love everything the guy has done. I'm a big fan. But this music has all the humor and charm of So Long, Bannatyne. Burton is taking chances here and the music is the better for it. "Had To Be You" just begs for a Kurt Winter guitar solo. "Heavenly Blue" brings a tear to an old fan. Enough of my commentary...Find this CD and buy it. Burton is a great talent. This is a fantastic album. By the way, Burton is a character in a novel called The English Setter Dance. Check the chapter called, "Even God Waits for His Pizza Tonight." Burton comes off as a pretty good guy. Thanks, Burton,

4.0 out of 5 stars It took 20 years to hear this! May 8 2000
By JEFFERY FRANGIONE - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Audio CD
Who can explain what goes through the mind of a record exec? As Burton's liner notes explain, this album was quashed for US release in 1980. What a shame, but this release is now our gain! Can anyone explain how a song as beautiful as Heavenly Blue could be ignored? Or the snappy horn solo-ed Fine State of Affairs? This follow up to Dream Of a Child just seems to grow on you with repeated plays...One and Only, another gorgeous ballad, has Cummings signature all over it, along with the album closer Wakin' Up Today. With a host of band and studio buddies, including Jeff Baxter on guitars, Lenny Castro on percussion and Jim Horn on sax, this collections fills a big gap for us US fans...It should never have been shelved...listen and see why!

4.0 out of 5 stars An artist with priciples? Nov. 24 2000
By bcpcfan - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Audio CD
You have to own this one. This is the recording that caused Burton to walk away from millions. Once you've heard it, you'll understand why he stuck to his "guns, guns, guns". It is lamentable though that this may have cost him being more of a recognizable solo artist outside of Canada. I feel he's as talented as his contemporaries (Billy Joel/Elton John), but perhaps his principles cost him that kind of recognition. At least if you're reading this, you're one of the folks who know how talented this man is. This is Burton's favorite solo recording, it'll be one of yours too.

5.0 out of 5 stars What happened to this one? July 29 2000
By Ed Wilberding - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Audio CD
I have been a Guess Who fan since 1970, and bought all of the Burton Cummings albums that were available, including his self titled first, My Own Way to Rock, Dream of a Child, and Sweet Sweet. When Woman Love became available on the internet, I snatched it up. I was amazed and a bit upset that although the other material was great, this CD was superior. How in the world did this classic collection of BC music not make it to the public before this. Please release Plus Signs and Heart.

5.0 out of 5 stars Fine state of album, eh? May 7 2003
By M. Detko - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Audio CD
Interesting. I am a Canadian, and I recall "Fine State of Affairs" as a big hit here, and likely my fave BC solo track ever. It's so full of nostalgia, humour, atmosphere and you can really pop your fingers to it. Anyway, I picked up an original vinyl of this not too long ago and surprise - the album is excellent. I was surprised to read about it being "quashed" for US release. In case the original artwork was not reproduced in the CD, I'll tell you what you got inside. First, the inside record sleeve: A picture in glorious soft-focus colour, the entire size of the sleeve, showing a well-dressed Burton and an unidentified young blonde woman, skipping hand in hand through a beautiful park, a look of ecstacy on Burton's face. Why is the woman unidentified? because she's wearing a paper bag over her head! On the other side, the same scene from the back. Then, you get the lyric sheet. Another picture, but in sepia-blue, of Burton and his bag-lady, this time sitting on a rock, with Burton in a smoking jacket, hand on her shoulder, looking very pensive and far-off but in an aristocratic way. Listen to the words of "Fine State.." and maybe this all makes sense. I think BC had a rep as a misogynist, but who cares? the album is great and features Garry Peterson (ex-Guess Who drummer) and Kurt Winter (ex-GW guitar) on many cuts. The songs are beautifully crafted ranging from smooth jazz to 50's blues or toe tapping hooks. Production first-rate and Burton's voice still had lots of edge (he's kind of lost it now, as recent Guess Who reunion tours show).

5.0 out of 5 stars BURTON'S BEST ALBUM EVER - ONLY IN CANADA, YOU SAY? Aug. 1 2007
By Wayne Racine - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Audio CD
... I can hardly believe that this collection of radio-friendly tunes was never released in the US! Were the execs at the US offices of Epic records asleep at the wheel when "Fine State Of Affairs" came out?

I tell ya, you Americans have missed out on so much terrific Canadian music over the years - Keith Hampshire, Zappacosta, Peter Pringle, Roch Voisine, Powder Blues, Michel Pagliaro, the Spoons, etc., and the list goes on and on. There's a whole lot more to us than just Anne Murray and Shania Twain!

This style of music really suited BC - too bad he didn't stick with it.
