Let's Welcome April Wine To The Illinois State Fair

"The Tubes and April Wine are the first bands to announce a Grandstand show at this year's Illinois State Fair," the Springfield State Journal-Register reported last week.

The Tubes? Ugh. "She's a Beauty" was one of the worst songs to ever infect our planet.

But April Wine? Sure, it would be nice if the Illinois State Fair booked bands that we're relevant at least sometime in the last 20 years, but I never thought April Wine was given its due.

Let's take a look.

1. All Over Town.


2. I Like To Rock.


3. Roller.


4. Sign of the Gypsy Queen.


5. Just Between You And Me.


6. Could Have Been A Lady.


7. Before The Dawn.


8. Crash and Burn.


Comments welcome.
