THE GUESS WHO - The History Of LP 72

Another first type album and because of their efforts a great history about a radio law enacted in the USA at the time about Canadian bands who were not getting enough airplay.

Just to clarify: it was CANADA which enacted the Canadian Content law (often abbreviated as 'Can Con') through the CRTC (Canadian Radio/Television Communications Commission) to ensure that a certain percentage of radio and television content was Canadian in content, and thus allowed new and emerging Canadian artists to have a fair chance at exposure amidst all the established US and European artists who dominated the charts.
Interesting sidebar: Kon Kan, the Canadian pop/dance artist from the 80's and early 90's, derived their name from this commonly known law.
