Of course being Canadian I think April Wine is one of the best!! Being a teenager in the 70's I bought every April Wine album I could get my hands on!! This CD is great because it gives a good taste of the songs I listened to on all those albums in the 70's. If you are looking for some good April Wine tunes, buy this CD. You won't be disappointed!!
Of course I would like to buy every CD that I have in album from the 70's!!! Probably if I can find them on amazon.ca they will end up in my CD collection now!! This is just a excellent band and if you have never heard April Wine this CD would give you a variety of April Wine tunes. From some good ole rock & roll to tender love songs. I could go on & on about how this is a great band. Just check it out for yourself, you won't regret it!! This Canadian band rocks!!

I bought this LP back in 1981 when April Wine were red hot with "Nature of the Beast". I thought they were a fairly new group but this LP (which had inner sleeve notes about what LP each track came from - the CD cheaply omits those) was a great introduction to the bands pre-Capitol Records era for American fans.
What impresses me most is they were able to pull off many styles from Hard Rock to big ballads to Power Pop convincingly and never lost thier edge or smarts. Theres a little sappiness in the ballads, but its not annoying or downright dull (like Journey in thier worst moments) and theres never any art-rock pretentiousness or overreaching (like Styx or Kansas). These guys were just a hard rock band who liked all kinds of music and werent afraid to experiment now and then.
I finally got a chance seeing April Wine play at the (now sadly demolished) Bronco Bowl back in 2000. They put on a great show to a packed house with members from the Dallas Stars hockey team and metal-thrash band Pantera among the crowd. Myles told everyone they had a request and played "Tonite Is a Wonderful Night To Fall in Love"... Most people didnt know the song, but I sang along LOUD anyway. This CD is the reason why!

Being from Canada(eh),you could not help but hearing a great tune from this GREAT rock band.This compilation is taken mostly from older material which I think is some of there best stuff.Fast train is from thier 1st ever!The C.D.contains hard rockers and ends with a ballad which they are identified with in thier later tunes.Most anything from this band is good except maybe some poppier fluff from the late 80's and 90's.This C.D.would be a great one to start anyone off on the right path to enjoy APRIL WINE like I do and hopefully keep on rockin'!!
