Three original albums in a 3 CD package with new sleeve notes.
Wheatfield Soul became a collector’s item over the years. The hit ‘These Eyes’ has the authority that the band repeated on chart songs down the line. What make Wheatfield Soul so sought after is inventive themes that found their way onto later albums. ‘These Eyes’ remains timeless; it is the song that stands out as the masterpiece on this creative album. 1969’s cleverly titled Canned Wheat introduced several of the bands most remembered songs and still sounds incredibly fresh, a product from the days of classic rock. Burt Cummings great rock & Roll voice keeps the most overdone Song fresh and Randy Bachman’s underrated guitar work always serving the song’s needs. Recorded in the aftermath of Randy Bachman’s departure, Share The Land was a better album than anyone expected. It was the biggest selling original album in their career. Burton Cummings is in excellent voice and the new double lead guitar team of Kurt Winter and Greg Leskiw gave the band a greater range than they had before. The original album includes two numbers from earlier sessions, ‘Palmyra’ and ‘The Answer’, featuring Randy Bachman on guitar.
