Fans of the songs from The Guess Who and Burton Cummings will not be disappointed in this release, not at all. The voice is clear and true, no doubt about it. The sound is tight and full, giving the classic hits a bit of a bump, for the better. It is comforting to know what a man and his band can achieve with pure talent and the love of the music.
This is what music should sound like...real. Buy this album, you won't regret it.
Burton and the band sound very good in these recordings, selected from two shows (in 2010 and '11) at Toronto's iconic Massey Hall.
But two things occur to me:
1. Why do so many Guess Who songs (all but 4 of the 18 tracks) when they were done brilliantly on the Guess Who's Runnin' Back Through Canada two-disc compilation releasd in 2001? Why so few solo tracks??
2. Why one disc instead of two? There were more songs performed at these two concerts than are present on Massey Hall.
One of the best-if not the best live cds I have heard in years. Burton Cummings' voice has not lost a thing since the days he either wrote or co-wrote these hits!
There are 18 cuts and every one sounds fresh and varies little from the original recordings done by Mr. Cummings as a solo act or the recordings done by Mr. Cummings during his career as the original lead singer of THE GUESS WHO.
The music is straight forward and straight up rock and roll and it all comes together to compliment the unmistakable voice of Burton Cummings.
I live in the U.S. and received the cd this week. I was not disappointed. I am very glad I pre-ordered.
The pre-orders sold out the day it was released or the next day. I expect the same to happen here in the USA.
The sound on this exceptional--just like he sounds in person. 100% pure and 100% natural--JUST 100% CLASS!
His voice is excellent, very powerful. He did NOT include the full version of American Woman....just the same part we have all heard 50 billion times, not the part that he plays piano at the start and works into it...NO IDEA why not :( Big downer for me. Break It To Them Gently is definitely missing on this album...a few like Star Baby and We just came from the U.S.A definitely could have been swapped out for classics. Very reasonably priced, just a few things I would change for sure. It was recorded from 2 seperate nights aswell..one from 2010 I believe and another from 2011.
Loved the reunion 12 years ago and thought that the live recordings from that Canadian tour were outstanding. That said, this newest release by Burton and band is very very good. The quality of the recording is outstanding and Burton's voice comes through loud and clear. These songs sound fresh and inspired. No kareoke here. While Burton may not scream out his lungs on the rockers anymore he has most of his original range and at 65 that is outstanding. He sounds less nasally than on his solo live album from the mid 1990's.This is a strong effort and there are many solo songs here including a couple off his last solo record. The band is first rate and I not only recommend this for fans of Burton and the Guess Who but for other rocks fans who I'm sure will appreciate the CD and have many "aha!!" moments as one familiar song after another comes on.
My one complaint (albit a minor one) is that Burton mentioned recording a live show and DVD of him performing some of the lesser known Guess Who/Burton Cummings classics for release. While that may not sell like this CD has, the old Guess Who/Burton army would treasure it!!!
Great CD!! Keep em coming Burton.

This CD was a gift to a friend that recently saw Burton Cummings in concert and thoroughly enjoyed it. I thought she could relive the experience.Published on Jan. 23 2013 by Debra Hikida
Burton Cummings' Massey Hall live album makes a perfect companion to his latest studio album, Above the Ground. Read morePublished on Jan. 20 2013 by Interraterreliability
In the 60's and 70's he had a voice of gold. Now, I would rather listen to those records than waste my money on this trash. As I said, his voice sounds like one of his frogs. Read morePublished on Dec 3 2012 by BC
The sound quality was excellent on the CD. I spent a lot of my youth at
Massey Hall so I thought the CD was recorded at a very special place.
Wonderful audio ride down memory lane!
Burton has the pipes and he's sharing them with you world!!
I would recommend this CD to any guess who fan.
