Now and Again is an album by Canadian band The Grapes of Wrath, released in 1989. It was the band's first album to feature new member Vince Jones on keyboards. The album was produced by Anton Fier and was recorded in an old (and supposedly haunted) church in Woodstock, New York.[citation needed] Guest musicians included Chuck Leavell, Sneaky Pete Kleinow and Jane Scarpantoni.

Now and Again was certified Platinum in Canada and is the band's most commercially successful album to date. The album contained one of the band's biggest hit singles, "All the Things I Wasn't". Now and Again was the 13th best-selling Cancon album in Canada of 1989.[1]

In Chart magazine's 2000 reader poll of the Best Canadian Albums of All Time, Now and Again ranked in 27th place.[2]

For the singles "What Was Going Through My Head" and "Do You Want To Tell Me", the b-sides were songs recorded on CBC Radio program Brave New Waves. One was an acoustic version of the song "Backward Town", and the other was a cover of Paul McCartney's "Let Me Roll It".
