I became a fan of April Wine just about instantly, being a teenager in 1972 the first time I heard "You Could Have been a Lady" courtesy WKBW in Buffalo which reached half the States and Canada. I had to find out what this band was all about, and at long last, in 2001 I finally got to see them play live, long after they'd broken up once and reunited...they played songs from every part of their tenure as one of Montreal's finest bands and didn't disappoint anyone at all (some folks came from Boston to see them in Burlington VT)...I never thought of Myles goodwyn and company as "poor musicians", not even remotely. Songs like Sign of the Gypsy Queen, Babes in Arms, Forever for Now, Drop Your Guns, Oowatanite, Victim For Your Love (and I could go on and on) to me don't sound like poor musicians but a bunch of guys who are just as good at the heavy stuff and the ballads. If the reviwer calling them poor musicians is trying to compare them to Rush or someone like that...I'll take April Wine hands down. None of the seemingly constant tempo changes and a voice I can listen to for a lot longer than Geddy Lee's. Don't get me wrong, it takes talent to do what Rush does on a technical basis...but for pure rock & roll enjoyment, April Wine has a lot more great tunes than a lot of people realize. I for one am very glad they decided to get back together, and not just one or two original members with four other guys you've never heard of. They've stayed true to the band and the sound. The recent material is just fine too...this collection covers all of the first Wine era through the mid-80s. Fine Wine indeed!

Like Chris Jordan said in his review, this is indeed a remaster. I'm sure there are other AW fans who were or are curious as to whether this is a remaster or just a recycled release. This is a release by Unidisc and the sound is good. I'm only halfway through listening to this as I type and I love each and every bit of this collection.

First let me say you can get this same Box Set for $50 on on other sites,I have the original release on Aquaries Records and it has a good mix of songs through out the Wines career.

Bad musicians,somebody is just not a AW fan so it's easy to say that I guess.These guys wrote some great songs over there career and are still out there playing,and playing well.I seen them earlier this year and they put on a great show.It was short because of the venue being stupid with some kind of silliness that I was told about.

I seen them open for Rush in 79 and seen them about 6 more times since then and everytime the put on a great show.

I would say this set is probably for the avid AW fan though,unless you want to really get to hear what some of there early tunes were like and hear some unreleased Live classic tunes.

ok , this is a great one for casual fans who want all the hits and more. For completists like me the only reason to get this was a few b-sides and the live 'one for the road' which now is out as a single release with bonus tracks.
If you don't care to buy all the music of this fine group then this one is for you completely. It's got all the best songs and lots of tight playing and singing from the boys. IT's a compilation four disc special with one live cd among them. That was the 'one for the road' and some tracks from 'live' etc. Both of which are now out on single discs. I would say that this is well worth it and I still own it even though I bought the rest of the catalog.

Could have used a better packing concept. Individual cases for each CD would have worked better. Over all a great product.

Sell was top shelf.

I couldn't give this collection of music a 5 star review for this reason. The 4th disc contains 15 tracks only 2 of which are not already in this collection as studio versions. The 3rd disc is called vintage April Wine at this point isn't all of their music vintage? I understand that with the 4th disc they wanted to capture the energy of the band, I feel this could have been accomplished with 4 live tracks leaving room for inclusion of more studio songs. I also think if your going to mention songs in the book included you should include those tracks in your collection! This is a great introduction to a great band that has never seemed to get the recognition they deserve. The sound quality is great & I love this band & would be happy to give this 5 stars but it lacks to many great songs in favor of live repetition. April Wine certainly doesn't lack for good material & as for a review I saw calling them poor musicians that is just ludicrous! I guess if you compare every bass player to Les Claypool & every Guitarists to Stevie Vie & every drummer to Neil Pert & every vocalist to Freddy Mercury... based on these standards you would have to say The Beatles are poor musicians instead of four geniuses gathered together in one band!!!! April Wine are fine musicians & I give them 5 stars, unfortunately for the reasons stated above I can only give this collection 4 stars. It is however a great introduction to the band for the many people who think the album "Nature of the Beast" was their debut album!

This is a great collection. The 4th CD "Live" from 1984 sounds great as well. I am so glad Slow Poke was on the CD
