A nice collection from one of the best canadian rockers! 21 Oct 1999
By A Customer - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Audio CD
Great collection but there are a couple of songs missing: "Cum Hear The Band" is just an example. The songs featuring B.T.O.'s Jim Clench are awesome. A CD you won't regret to buy!!!

Wino review 18 Dec 2001
By Andrew D Goldhawke - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Audio CD
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'!!

Great Canadian Band!! 5 Stars PLUS 2 Jun 2004
By Laura - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Audio CD
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!!

Wrong songs on CD 6 July 2009
By Musicnerd - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Audio CD
The songs listed with Amazon in the internet, plus the songs on the insert plus the listing of the songs on the CD itself all list the same songs - 14 songs in total. However, the songs on the CD are a completely different collection - 12 songs, of which 6 overlap with the above and 6 are completely different.

Amazon refunded the costs (an international order).

I also bought "The Hits..Over 60 Minutes With" which was a "better" collection with 19 songs. Only reason I order "Greatest Hits" was because it was supposed to include the John/Taupin cover of Bad Side of the Moon which I wanted (good bass line).

There is significant overlap between these 2 CDs (assuming the correct songs are on "Greatest Hits") and if you can live without Drop Your Guns, Weeping Widow, Oowatanite, Lady Run Lady Hide and Bad Side of the Moon, then "The Hits..." includes all of its songs plus another 9 songs and is my preferred choice (also was 1/2 the price).
The 4CD collection with pretty well everything they ever did is no longer produced and costs an arm and a leg even used (>> $100).

Actually ordered them for "Say Hello", which was likely April Wine's greatest single hit. Most interesting is the drum intro which is a slow 4/4 but as soon as the instruments come in, it turns into a fast 3/4 with a 3-3-2-2-2 syncopation but the drums continue with the 4/4, which is why there are a lot of off-beats from bass drum and snare. Very clever for those of us who are music geeks.

April Wine has continued to churn out generally good, mainstream rock and ballads over the years with many hits.

Wrong CD in the case 15 July 2009
By Amy - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Audio CD
I ordered this CD and what arrived looked like the correct item. However, when I went to play it, I discovered that the CD was actually "Best Of April Wine" which has different tracks. And of course, the song I really wanted was not on there. I returned it, they sent me another, and it was the same problem. What made it even better - the service rep on the phone had a terrible attitude with me! Don't order this - you will get the wrong CD.
