Winnipeg native Burton Cummings is perhaps best known from his days as the lead singer/songwriter for the legendary Guess Who. From his days with the Guess Who to his successful solo career, Cummings managed to make himself something of a Canadian icon. This debut solo album, originally released on the Portrait label in 1976, produced a number of hits for Cummings including "I'm Scared," and "Stand Tall" along with a big-band version of Bachman-Turner Overdrive's "You Ain't Seen Nothin' Yet." This album was remastered by legendary engineer Bill Inglot and contains two new bonus tracks from Cummings' extensive library that were not included on Cummings himself, and all of the song lyrics accompany this remastered version of the album. ~ Keith Pettipas
