BRYAN ADAMS – Reckless (30th Anniversary Remaster + Previously Unreleased)
“Reckless” turned Canadian BRYAN ADAMS into a worldwide rock star. Timeless hits like “Run to You,” “Heaven” and “Summer of ‘69” pushed sales of the album to over 12 million copies. This special “Reckless 30th Anniversary Edition” celebrates the milestone album remastered in all its glory including 7 bonus tracks.
There’s a box set which features a remastered version of the original 10-track album plus seven previously unissued bonus tracks, a 1985 BBC concert performance, director Steve Barron’s Reckless: The Movie and a Blu-ray audio disc with high-resolution stereo and 5.1 surround mixes, all housed in a DVD case-sized hardback book.
But honestly all you need is the main “Reckless” album remastered with a very warm sound quality and the 7 previously unreleased tracks form the album’s recording sessions.
Obviously, these great unknown tracks reflects a brilliant songwriting era from the Jim Vallance / Bryan Adams team.
Of utmost interest to fans will be the actual inclusion of the title track “Reckless” which due to deadlines did not make it onto the original album.
The “Reckless 30th Anniversary Edition” reissue has been personally overseen by Bryan working with many of the original team including Bob Clearmountain, Bob Ludwig and Jim Vallance (what a team) enticingly enhanced these already fantastic songs.
