Released April 2006: The Bachman Cummings Songbook marks the first time that Randy bachman and Burton Cummings' career highlights have been gathered into one package. From their initial hits with the Guess Who; through Randy’s incredible run with BTO; to Burton Cummings solo career - the Bachman Cummings Songbook is the definitive collection of these songwriting giants. "Who would have known that this guy I met back when we were teenagers... that all these years later, decades later we would still be standing, and standing together?” Randy Bachman Randy Bachman and Burton Cummings are inarguably Canada’s most successful songwriting partnership. After exploding onto the charts with the Guess Who, the pair continued a reign of chart dominance by penning some of the most memorable songs in the history of rock.
Randy Bachman left following '71's SHARE THE LAND, but Cummings carried on with The Guess Who for another five years, going through a number of guitarists, including Greg Leskiw, Kurt Winter and Domenic Troiano, but still pumped out the gold hits, including "Running Back To Saskatoon", "Orly", "Albert Flasher" and "Clap For The Wolfman", an ode to the late Wofman Jack. Though The Guess Who name carried on after Kale bought the rights to it, it was evident their time had passed, with the exception of the reunion tour here and there.Cummings released his first solo record in the fall of 1976 on CBS Records. Now in complete control of his career, he quickly made his mark as a solo artist. A basic piano-driven pop sound with a predominantly laid back feel, the singles "Stand Tall" and "I'm Scared" pushed the self-titled debut gold (50, 000 copies in Canada). Other noteable mentions included the cover of Ray Charles' "That's Enough", Gilbert O'Sullivan's "Nothing Rhymed" and his version of BTO's "You Ain't Seen Nothin' Yet". Cummings was honoured with two Junos that year, single of the year for "Stand Tall" as well as album of the year. He took up residence full time in LA that year and also contributed to other projects by Bette Midler, Leo Sayer ... and also Randy Bachman, apparently mending the wounds caused from his leaving The Guess Who.
