AllMusic Review by

Burton Cummings is perhaps best known from his days as the lead singer/songwriter for the legendary Guess Who. From his days with that band to his successful solo career, Winnipeg native Cummings has managed to make himself something of a Canadian icon. Now, for the first time, his second solo recording My Own Way to Rock is available in a newly remastered version. This second solo album, originally released on the Portrait label in 1977, followed in a more rock & roll direction than his debut album the year prior. Although this album wasn't the commercial success of the debut, it did produce the hit "My Own Way to Rock," as well as fan favorites "Charlemagne" and "Never Had a Lady Before." This album was remastered by legendary engineer Bill Inglot and contains two new bonus tracks from Cummings' extensive library, which were not included on the original release. All original artwork has been fully restored to this remastered version of the album, and there are new liner notes written by Cummings himself, as well as all of the song lyrics.
