Happy Day | Reviewer: rmg | 11/1/11
I also have looked for the name of this song for ever. I heard it along time ago when my girlfriend and I use to get into her brothers albums and listen when he was not home. When I would tell people the words "he walked up the thirteen steps of the gallows" and "in flanders fields where poppies grow" they thought I was mad no one that I knew had ever heard or knew what song it was. Thank you.
Bringing back memories....... | Reviewer: Old Hippie | 3/24/10
This came out in my last year of High School, and that was the year that myself and "Friends of Mine" built a pirate radio station in one of the larger midwest cities, where our signal could be heard for 10 miles. This song was banned on all commercial radio stations at the time, so we played it at least once every 2 hours. The original version had one instance of the word "truck" using the F word..... (Such a horrible thing to do) back when my buddies were being killed in Vietnam. I still have the original on a reel to reel tape, if only I had something to play it on.......
The late 60's were the best of all times, except for the war.......
Yes!!!!!!!!!!! | Reviewer: Brenda | 3/11/10
Like Sharon, I have also been looking for this song for years! I guess with everything going on back then, it was hard to remember anything. I just heard this song again after all these years on my Sirius radio. That's how I found the title and artist. Great song!!!!

I have been a big bnig fan of the Guesswho for years. Everytime that I could I would go to see them. Once 10 years ago they were at a small Missouri town at Lake of the Ozark and I went to see them at Millstone Lodge They were great. But they don't get to this area any more.
Good Luck Guesswho in whatever your doing.
They're not The Doors | Reviewer: Jack | 12/2/09
Look, I'm probably the Guess Who's biggest fan, but honestly, I think this "masterpiece," as another reviewer in this thread called it, is a weak attempt to sound like the Doors. I even heard Cummings mention in an interview once that they were "influenced" by the Doors during that time (1968 or so), when "Wheatfield Soul" was released. Don't get me wrong, "Wheatfield Soul" is a fine album, but this isn't it's best track. I like "A Wednesday In Your Garden," "The Pink Wine Sparkles In The Glass," "Lightfoot" (a beautiful tribute to fellow Canadian Gordon Lightfoot), and, of course, the big hit, "These Eyes."

I have been trying to find the song that contains part of the Flander Field poem and you provided it with Friends of Mine. Can you tell me what CD I can find the song on now?
I have been looking for years and I am so grateful. Thanks
FINALLY!! | Reviewer: Sharon | 4/23/07
I have been looking for the name of this song and the recording artists for a LONG time, and finally looked in my old and dusty albums and came upon the "Wheatfield Soul" album. I somehow knew that was it, but since I no longer had a turntable, couldn't play it, so, I started looking for the lyrics to the song, and here it is...WHEW!! (And Thanks!!)
These Friends of mine | Reviewer: Lorelei | 4/19/07
I too looked for this song for some time. I was told that the album Wheatfield Soul can be purchased at Amazon.com. Gook luck.
Album | Reviewer: nick | 8/30/06
This song is a masterpiece, no doubt, from the album Wheatfield Soul by the Guess Who.
Finally Found it! | Reviewer: Drew | 9/15/05
I have been searching for this song for years. I finally have the words. Does anyone know where I can find an album with this song on it??
