About the only thing April Wine's inaugural has going for it is young leader Myles Goodwyn's "Fast Train." Right off, Goodwyn begins the trend of saving the band's Canadian bacon, as the remaining members (all Henmans) wade in stream-of-consciousness nonsense. ("Wench" actually follows hot on the heels of "Song for Mary." ) Naturally, the resultant tracks on this old wax don't snap, crackle, and pop like impending breakthrough "You Could Have Been a Lady" (and its long bygone B-side "Teacher") or the powerful platters dropped later in the decade when Goodwyn perfected his harder and faster version of April Wine. ...See Full Description

||Poor First Effort|
First generation Wine. Not aged to perfection yet. Sound almost like they are trying to mimick other bands sound of the time.
By a reviewer (Sasebo, Japan)
||WOW! what a unexpected album?|
I was very suprised what I was listning to... I'm a "Wino" (April Wine fanatic) but WOW! what a difference in sound than what they have in there other albums... but dont get me wrong for some reason I acually really love this album... deffinatly for the April Wine Collector P.S. WINE IS BETTER WITH AGE.
By Smitty (Middle Stewiacke, NS, CAN)
In defense of this first effort by April Wine i'm one who believes it is a worthy first effort. The Goodwyn songs definately Rock, especially Fast Train.
