    (Just between you and me) - when I hear this song it makes me want to pull out a bic lighter and sway back and forth. The guitar is super heavy on this jam. Classic April Wine for sure makes your blood run hot!
  • Brent from Denair, CaA very underrated band. A classic song and bank. Another great album titled Harder, Faster with my favorite song, Say Hello.
