Customer Reviews

It sounds pretty good considering.
N. Knox
This is a serious album aimed at the AOR market of the late 70's and early 80's when hard rock was taking the world by storm and outselling all other types of music.
Michael Courtney
This first recording of April Wine is the best of any other recordings made by this band.

April Wine has been releasing records since 1971, so, this definitely wasn't their first album. This was April Wine with what would prove to be their most successful line-up, though! To me the major loss was Jim Clench to BTO, but this album proved they would be alright without him. With Myles Goodwyn at the controls they released the album that would break them into the U.S. market with a vengeance for a change, unlike their earlier releases with Big Tree Records and their Aquarius Imports.
This is a serious album aimed at the AOR market of the late 70's and early 80's when hard rock was taking the world by storm and outselling all other types of music. April Wine showed their stuff with my favorite "Silver Dollar", "Roller", "Hot on the Wheels of Love", "Rock and Roll Is A Vicious Game"(10 years to get to this point proved that) and "Get Ready for Love". I don't want to say they rode in on the coat tails of Rush, Triumph, Mahogany Rush and others, but their timing was impeckable with this exceptional release.
So, even though this is not April Wine's first U.S. release it is the first one into wide spread airplay. This is a definite plus to any collection. If you want to try some fine Wine this is a great place to start and if you'd like some vintage Wine I would say look for Electric Jewels. If you are completely new to April Wine try a Greatest Hits or live album to discover what you are missing to see if it is time to become a Wine connoisseur.

April Wine's 1978 release First Glance is an excellent collection of rockin' tunes. All nine tracks are enjoyalble. Roller is the most memorable of the songs, of course with its killer riff. Also notable is Rock n Roll is a Vicious Game. If you enjoyed their biggest American hit 1981's "The Nature of the Beast" you'll enjoy this one as well. Worth tracking down on vinyl or old cassette.

FIRST GLANCE was April Wine's second masterpiece, coming three years after STAND BACK, and the remastered version is even better than the import I used to own. Granted, there are no bonus tracks, but the warm, crisp remastering makes you feel like you're actually in the room with the band. There isn't a single bad song to be found here, which is refreshing in the Top-40-oriented pop/rock world of 2008. This album, along with STAND BACK, HARDER FASTER, and THE NATURE OF THE BEAST, helps comprise the essential April Wine library.

though this was not their best-selling album, i believe it is one of their best. it has a harder edge than most of their albums (especially from harder faster on), yet still has that great april wine melodic feel that they do so well. if you like seventies rock, this is a great one.

Following the release of `Forever, For Now', April Wine fans were wondering in just what direction Myles and the boys would jerk them with the next album. Never fear, the band returned with the rock'n'roll classic `First Glance', their "hardest" album since `Electric Jewels', and had one more surprise - a fifth member. Brian Greenway, an accomplished guitarist, harmonica player, singer, and songwriter in his own right, was thrown into the mix (pardon the pun) about halfway through the making of the album. The addition of Greenway meant a few of things - first, and most importantly, it allowed Myles to play keyboards during live shows while still retaining a thick two-guitar sound (or even better an immensely fat sound when Myles picked up his own Les Paul). Second, it allowed the band to record songs they could actually reproduce on stage. Third, it added another voice for background, and occasionally lead vocals. And to top it off, Greenway even added a few songs of his own on later albums.

Goodwyn's decision that this was going to be a purely rock album is evident from the opening guitar riffs. Curiously, the vinyl version (which I bought the day it was released in 1978) opens with "Hot On The Wheels Of Love" rather than "Get Ready For Love", which opens the CD version I purchased in later years. After years of listening to the vinyl version, I could never get used to starting the CD with "Get Ready...". I always thought that "Hot On..." was a great opening track. The third track is "Rock'n'Roll Is a Vicious Game" which was one of the first two singles from the album (the other being "Let Yourself Go", which didn't go anywhere).

Great guitars, drums and vocals. I should have been listening to these guys instead of Journey.

I wanted to correct the review, below, which states that this was their first album. I believe it was their ninth! It was pre-dated by:
1971 - April Wine
1972 - On Record
1973 - Electric Jewels
1974 - Live
1975 - Stand Back
1976 - The Whole World's Goin' Crazy
1977 - Forever For Now
1977 - Live At The El Mocambo
First Glance, along with Stand Back and Harder, Faster, is a high-point in April Wine's career. Good up-tempo rockers and power-ballads...if you're into that kind of music.
