#10 is the eleventh studio album by the Canadian rock band The Guess Who. The title derives from its being the band's tenth overall release. (That number seems to include both a live album and best-of compilation, but to not include offshoot releases of the band's early recordings prior to 1969.) It was originally released in 1973 by RCA Records.

The 2012 Iconoclassic reissue marked the first time the album was made available on CD in the U.S., as well as sporting both dramatically upgraded sound quality compared to all other CD releases, and a previously unreleased, stripped-down mix of "Glamour Boy" without the sound effects and crowd noise.

A Quadraphonic mix was available on both vinyl and Quadraphonic 8-track tape formats.

Later releases[edit]

This album, together with the 1974 "Road Food" album, was reissued on the Super Audio CD format in April 2018 by UK label Dutton Vocalion, Remastered in both Stereo and Surround Sound from the original analogue tapes by Michael J. Dutton and released as a 2-fer with "Road Food". The Surround Sound portion of the disc features the Quadraphonic mixes for both the "#10" and "Road Food" albums, made available for the first time in over 40 years.
