The Canadian band’s 1968 album “Wheatfield Soul” contained the hit single “These Eyes.” The Guess Who also scored hits with “Laughing” and “Undun” from the album “Canned Wheat.” In 1970 the band released their signature song, the No. 1 hit “American Woman.” The album of the same name also contained the hits “No Time” and “No Sugar Tonight/New Mother Nature.”

    WHO IS HE: “The King of Romance,” as Engelbert Humperdinck is often billed, has been wooing audiences since the 1950s.

Humperdinck possesses a three-and-a-half octave vocal range and has excellent technique, so it’s not as if he just another pretty face.
