‘Stand Tall’ by Burton Cummings – Classic Hit or Miss

In 1975 Cummings left The Guess Who after 10 years to become a solo artist, and the group disbanded. One of his first projects included providing back-up vocals on Eric Carmen’s second solo LP, Boats Against the Current, including “She Did It.” Cummings’ subsequent solo hits in Canada included “Stand Tall,” which was his greatest American solo hit, peaking at #10 on the Hot 100 and number two on the Adult Contemporary chart .Other hits included: “I’m Scared,” “Break it to Them Gently,” and “Fine State of Affairs.” Cummings charted outside Canada with “Stand Tall” and “You Saved My Soul.”Cummings became a resident of Sherman Oaks, California, and began writing and singing for films in the late 1970s. He currently winters in California and returns to Winnipeg in the summer, living in Canada throughout autumn.
