So Long, Bannatyne is the eighth studio album by the Canadian rock band The Guess Who, released in 1971 by RCA Records.
The Guess Who proved they could weather a significant personnel change with 1970's triumphant Share The Land. The 1971 follow-up, So Long, Bannatyne saw the band branching out, embracing more eclectic and less polished and commercial material, much of it with a considerably darker hue than the band's earlier material and heavily influenced by John Lennon's visceral Plastic Ono Band. A fascinating lyrical continuity emerges that reveals a band and it's principal writers burdened by success, cynical, tormented; the result being a kind of ad hoc concept record centering around themes of desperation, anger, disillusionment and resignation, topics frontman Burton Cummings would continue to explore throughout the rest of The Guess Who's lifespan.
"I won't go on about the genius of this album or the superlative playing on it. Chances are if you're interested in this recording you're already familiar with it. It is after all one of those recordings that seems like an old friend. Which is why picking up this LP is a must!"
