Guess Who DVD Will Be More Than Just Concert

TORONTO, CANADA -- During an hour-long Internet chat held by band members Burton Cumming and Randy Bachman, fans throughout the world of Canadian rock legends The Guess Who learned Wednesday night that the recently-reunited band will be releasing a DVD in early 2001.

It didn't come as a surprise that last weekend's two-hour live concert broadcast by CBC would be included on the DVD, but the slough of extras is what caught people off guard. Because a good portion of the CBC show contained commercials, some of the performance had to be cut off the playlist. These songs are sure to be included on the special album.

In addition, Paul Cantin, a reporter for JAM! Showbiz, wrote that according to the band members, the DVD could also contain interviews and home videos of the band members backstage and during rehearsals.

Cummings was quoted as saying that RCA, the group's original label in the States was even going to dig some archived videos from 30 years ago of the band performing in Winnipeg.

The DVD is only one of a number of albums the band plans to release in the near future. There's the live album which covers this summer's "Running Back Thru Canada" tour, Buddha Records (USA) reissuing some albums from the 1970s, and a package Bachman, an LDS Church member from the Vancouver, BC, area, is working on regarding pre-RCA material the groups had recorded.

Cummings also surprised fans with the announcement of a four-disc, 100-cut box set covering the whole career of The Guess Who, expected also for a 2001 release.

Cummings also verified the truth behind a rumour that the band would play a small Toronto venue in the very near future. The time and exact location were not revealed.
