Today's Tune: "Share The Land" By The Guess Who

Canadian guitarist Kurt Winter was born on this day in 1946. He was only 51 years old when he died December 14, 1997, but he created a lot of great music during his life. Mostly, he's remembered for the time he spent with The Guess Who.

Winter and guitarist Greg Leskiw joined The Guess Who in May of 1970, after the departure of Randy Bachman. Kurt wrote a few of their songs on his own, and he co-wrote many of the group's best songs with band leader, pianist and singer Burton Cummings.

For our 'Today's Tune', I've chosen probably my favorite of those songs the pair wrote together. Here is the title track from the 1970 album 'Share The Land'. Drummer Garry Peterson and bass player Jim Kale were the other members of the lineup, on this first album together.
