April Wine began in late 1969 in Waverley, Nova Scotia (a suburb of Halifax). The band's name was chosen simply because members thought the two words sounded good together.
The original members were brothers David Henman on guitar and Ritchie Henman on drums.
Their cousin Jim Henman joined in on bass and Myles Goodwyn completed the sound on lead vocals and guitar.
In early 1970 the band relocated to Montreal. Shortly after arriving in their new home the band was signed by Aquarius Records.
They recorded and released their debut album April Wine in September 1971.
The album spawned their first single, "Fast Train", which received fairly steady airplay on radio stations across Canada and established Myles Goodwyn as the band's main songwriter.

They were the first group to have a platinum album in Canada, and the first to launch a tour that grossed over $1 million.

Disc 1 is a live radio broadcast, originally recorded for WBCN 104.1 FM in 1981 which also features an interview with Brian Greenway, shows the band at their peak with a phenomenal show at the Aladdin Theatre in Las Vegas.

Disc 2, captured by the King Biscuit Flower Hour, was made while the band was promoting Power Play - their last album to have any substantial chart activity.
With this great live performance, April Wine proved their artistic abilities to entertain a large audience.
