Randy Bachman says the original inspiration for the guitar riffs for No Time came from an album by the ’60s California group, Buffalo Springfield, which included fellow Canadian Neil Young. Springfield band member Stephen Stills did a song on the album, called Hung Upside Down. Bachman took Stills’ guitar riff and “turned it upside down and made my own riff out of it.” The Guess Who song originally appeared on the band’s second RCA album, called Canned Wheat Packed by The Guess Who.
