Power in the Music is the fourteenth studio album by the Canadian rock band the Guess Who. The album was released in 1975 by RCA Records. It is the last album to feature lead singer Burton Cummings, before he left The Guess Who in 1975 to pursue a solo career.

The album features two singles: "Rosanne" (U.S. #105, Canada #55) and "When the Band Was Singin' ‘Shakin' All Over’" (U.S. #102). The lyrics of this 1975 song reference the Guess Who's 1965 hit "Shakin' All Over".

Release history[edit]

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