Second rehearsal of what was to become first lineup of April Wine

Thanks to my Uncle Charles for doing this footage back in 1969 . This was second rehearsal of the first lineup of April Wine , David , Ritchie , Myles and myself . The footage is not that clear . It is what it is . “That’s All I Got”  is a song I wrote about  my days back in Montreal in the early 1970s . It is included on my just released CD ” Same Old Feeling ” . Thanks to JC Douglas at Q104 for access to DVD of this  footage .

Gus Cannon – the original “Walk Right In”

This is the guy who wrote the tune  and performed it first in 1929 with his Jug Stompers . The Rooftop Singers did it in 1962 . Dr. Hook in 1977 .The second video here is a little history . Cannon is in late 90s when the film was done . My version is below with Charles Phillips on lead guitar .
