BRYAN ADAMS – Reckless +3 [Numbered Limited Edition Remastered SHM-CD] *EXCLUSIVE*
And here’s another request: the rare, out of print, collectors numbered Limited Edition remastered Japanese release of BRYAN ADAMS blockbuster album “Reckless”, pressed on high quality SHM-CD. This version is of particular interest ‘cos include as bonus track the B-side “Diana”, retired from distribution by Adams himself, not available into any other reissue / compilation, and in my opinion, one of the best Bryan songs ever.
Originally a B-side of the single ‘Heaven’ in some countries, “Diana” even doesn’t appeared as bonus into the recent ‘Reckless’ 30th Anniversary remastered release, and as far we know, this Japanese limited edition is the only one to feature the song on CD.
Though the song is assumed to be about the wedding of Charles, Prince of Wales and Lady Diana Spencer, the lyrics never explicitly identifies the characters as such.
Adams often performed the song during his live concerts up until the day of Diana’s death after which he retired the song permanently, and seems he asked to not be re-released as well.
Musically, “Diana” is a great Adams melodic rocker from his pen and with Jim Vallance co-writing, and deserved to be included into ‘Reckless’ definitive track list.
The other 2 bonus tracks are taken from the rare 2-sided single ‘Christmas Time’ originally appeared in 1985, and only reissued on CD in Japan in 1994.
Regarding the remaster and the SHM-CD, if you ask me, it sounds better thant the ‘Reckless 30th Anniversary’, better balanced and more defined in the overall spectrum.
A collectors item, and a must have album.
