Flavours is the thirteenth studio album by the Canadian rock band The Guess Who. This was the first album by the group to feature Domenic Troiano on guitar.

Release history[edit]

In addition to the usual 2 channel stereo version the album was also released by RCA in a 4 channel quadraphonic version on both LP and 8-track tape. The quad LP version was released using the Quadradisc system.

The album was first released on CD in a "Two-Fer" series, bundled with the album Rockin', although this release was criticized by multiple reviewers for poor sound quality. In 2011, the album was released in remastered form by the Iconoclassic label including previously unreleased demo tracks.
