April Wine - The April Wine Collection [1991] (4 x CD's)

 

APRIL WINE

April Wine - The April Wine Collection [1991] (4 x CD's)

A 4 x CD boxset from the veteran Canadian rockers. This set contains digitally remastered tracks broken up into four different categories. Disc One, the Singles, features 19 tracks including all of their big hits. Disc Two, the Rock Songs, contains 17 Hard Rockin' AW classics. Disc Three, Vintage Wine, includes 16 excellent tracks that have remained fan favorites over the years. Disc Four, Live, features 15 recordings that truly capture the essence of what an April Wine show is all about. Combined, these four discs show the many sides of the band that have appealed to their generations of fans over the years. April Wine is a truly intoxicating blend of Rock smarts and excellent songwriting chops. 67 tracks.

There's several collections out there but this is the only one that has everything by the legendary and beloved Canadian band! Americans know April Wine for their big eighties US hit Just Between You And Me but in Canada they have had tons of other songs that were smashes and their concerts are always big events! Personally I love their early songs like Lady Run Lady Hide and the Elton John/Bernie Taupin cover Bad Side Of The Moon. But there are scores of other classics too, among them Tonite Is A Wonderful Time, You Won't Dance With Me, Rock & Roll Is A Vicious Game, You Could Have Been A Lady, Doin' It Right and Rock Myself To Sleep, among many others.  (Amazon)

  2. Thank you! I was a big April Wine fan in the late 70s (probably their only one in my neighborhood). Looking forward to hearing them again!
