The Guess Who’s “American Women” Isolated Drums, Bass And Guitar

American Woman by Canadian rock band The Guess Who, was first released in January 1970 on the album of the same name and later in March as a single, which reached No. 1 on the Billboard Hot 100. Backed with “No Sugar Tonight,” Billboard ranked it as the No. 3 record of 1970.

Shortly after its release, The Guess Who were invited to play at the White House. Because of its supposed anti-American lyrics, Pat Nixon asked that they not play “American Woman”.
