There is about 70 minutes of fine music on this C.D.. Like many other reviews I don't know if having that much time available I would have chosen these particular songs but it is a fine representation of the band. When choosing from a band that has a career spanning four decades, its hard to decide what should be added or held back, but for the price you can't go wrong purchasing this whether your a hard core fan or curious about the band this is a great place to start. One reviewer stated they thought this is a band in crisis, this I must dispute as after this C.D. was made the band April Wine put out another four C.D.'s which are not represented on this collection. In or around 1994 April Wine put out one of their best album's containing some of their hardest rocking song's as well as a power ballad on par with "Just Between you & Me." Their 94 comeback C.D. was titled "Attitude" & pictured Myles Goodwyn's son on the cover. They also put out "Back to the Mansion" "Frigate" & in 2006 " Roughly Speaking". That is hardly a band in crisis! More appropriately I would say April Wine is a band you can never discount! I can not speak for "Back to the Mansion or "Frigate" as I have not heard them yet But as for "Attitude" & "Roughly Speaking" I would say another Best of or Greatest hits could certainly be in the future of April Wine! Producing four decades of music I would say this is a band ready to be inducted into the Rock & Roll Hall of Fame, not a band in crisis!!!

Then this is your album. That is if you're curious, of course. This collection spans the band's career from it's beginnings in 1970 to 1985's "Every Night I Rock Myself to Sleep" from the "Fright Night" soundtrack. Favorites off this release are "Say Hello," "Enough Is Enough," "Just Between You And Me," "Roller," "Love Has Remembered Me," "What If We Fall In Love," "Rock Myself To Sleep," "Tell Me Why," "Tonite Is A Wonderful Time To Fall In Love," "I'm On Fire For You Baby," "You Could Have Been A Lady". If you're interested in a good sampler of the band's music - this is a good CD to order.

This is undoubtedly the best of April Wine, it contains most of their ballads as well as, some of their heavier rock tunes. "Nature of the Beast" is a good album it rates high with loyal fans but, April Wine gave us some noticable ballads like, "JUST BETWEEN YOU AND ME" & "I WOULDN'T WANT TO LOSE YOUR LOVE" as well,I much prefer a more rounded version of an artist/groups music. Although April Wine never made it to "Stones" fame they did give us some catchy tunes to remember them by. I recommend April Wines "THE HITS" Cd as an abreviated version of their box set, yes it's becoming more and more costly to uptain but, to real collectors its worth it. Besides, I believe this album will become extinct on the open market within the next 10 years, leaving those without, wishing they'd bought it when it was still affordable. For you real collectors of April Wine checkout their box set it's full of heavy, light and ballad songs. R.I.

I don't know what Myles and the boys were thinkin' on this one. Maybe I am not the typical April Wine fan. With 19 songs, there should be more than 5 really good tracks, don't you think? Well, there's not. You get Say Hello, Enough Is Enough, Just Between You And Me, Roller (great tune) and Sign Of The Gypsy Queen.
What happened to all the other good stuff from First Glance and Nature Of The Beast? Or even from Harder...Faster? Make your own mix from these three albums and Power Play. This release is too light on the hard stuff and good stuff from the boys from Canada.

Pay no attention to the bad reviews of this CD. This is an excellent overview of April Wine's music. As a matter of fact, this Hits collection turned me into an April Wine fan. Now that I know more about them, I realize there are two sides to April Wine - the power ballad/mellow side and the rocking side. Both sides of this band are tremendous and so much better than any new band could hope to be. This CD is exactly what it is titled - The Hits. This is also a Canadian import. Unlike Greatest Hits packages put together in the USA, they know how to truly put all of the "hits" on a CD. But, as all April Wine fans know, there is also a harder edge to April Wine than what is found on this CD and most of the their hits. Do yourself a favor, purchase this CD as well as another import of April Wine music entitled "All The Rockers." These two CDs (a total of 36 tracks in all) combined, are representative of April Wine's best and will be a welcome addition to any rock & roll collection. Let's face it, we have to go back into the past for good rock & roll. Discover April Wine all over again! Or, for the first time. I also purchased both CDs: The Hits & All The Rockers for a friend of mine and he was thrilled.

I first saw April Wine live at the Montreal Forum about twenty years ago. I just saw them again last Saturday night (08/10/02) at the Franklin County Fair in Upstate New York. I was expecting to see a bunch of old men going through the motions, but, while the bass player and drummer have added quite a few pounds, April Wine put on a great show, playing about half of the songs on this compilation.
April Wine has many compilations out there, and, except for their boxed set, none has all of their essential tracks. This one comes close, but I'm only giving it four stars instead of five because of the absence of "Bad Side of the Moon," "Oowatanite," "I Like to Rock," and "All Over Town." Those four tracks should have taken the place of the less essential tracks on this compilation: "Love Has Remembered Me"; "Tell Me Why"; "What If We Fall in Love"; and "You Won't Dance With Me."
But, all in all, a great compact disc with great music.
