BRYAN ADAMS’ RECKLESS TO BE RE-RELEASED WITH SEVEN PREVIOUSLY UNRELEASED TRACKS TO CELEBRATE THE 30TH ANNIVERSARY OF THE ICONIC ROCK ALBUM

BRYAN ADAMS’ RECKLESS TO BE RE-RELEASED WITH SEVEN PREVIOUSLY UNRELEASED TRACKS TO CELEBRATE THE 30TH ANNIVERSARY OF THE ICONIC ROCK ALBUM
(Toronto, ON – 15 September 2014)  Almost 30 years since the debut of one of the most iconic albums in music history, Universal Music Canada, the country’s leading music company is set to re-release Bryan Adams’ game-changing record Reckless on 24 November 2014.  The re-release features a lavish four-disc super-deluxe edition of Reckless housed in a DVD case-sized hardback book that will include the 2014 re-mastered audio and seven bonus tracks, the BBC in Concert Hammersmith Odeon live concert performance recorded in April of 1985, and a DVD of Reckless – The Movie, which was a first at the time, as it was an accompanying release alongside the Reckless album and was shot by the legendary Director, Steve Barron (Dire Straits, Aha, Michael Jackson).

The movie features videos from Reckless interspersed with scenes linking the tracks.  The fourth disc in the super-deluxe edition is a Blu-Ray Pure Audio™ recording of the original album and a stereo mix re-mastered this year.

The packaging of Reckless includes never before seen historical photos from the studio, photos of Adams and writing partner Jim Vallance as well as a fascinating conversation between the two of them, remembering the writing and recording of the album cut by cut.  There is an exclusive interview with Adams and a technical interview with legendary mastering engineer Bob Ludwig as well as lyrics, work sheets, paperwork, notes and much more, remarkably kept intact from 1984 – truly an amazing and comprehensive collection of music and memorabilia.

UMC originally released Reckless three decades ago on 05 November 1984 – on Adams’ 25th birthday –  the 10-track record, spawned six ground-breaking hit singles, “Run To You”, “Somebody”, “Heaven”, “Summer of 69”, “One Night Love Affair” and “It’s Only Love” – the duet with the iconic Tina Turner.  Reckless is the album that catapulted Adams’ career onto the international stage, becoming a multi-million selling disc in the U.K., Australia, Netherlands, Sweden, Switzerland, the U.S., Germany and of course his home country of Canada.  From the opening act to headliner, Top 20 to #1, the album was the tipping point in Adams’ career.

The original 10-track recording of Reckless stretched on for months: sessions began in March 1984, but the album wasn’t finished until September.  “By the time I’d finished the album,” noted Adams, “I was completely exhausted.  I’d pushed everybody, including myself, very hard.  It was almost like I didn’t care about any other relationship anymore with anybody.  I was just going to make the best record I possibly could.”

History proves he did just that. “Reckless was just the right record at the right time,” says Adams.  “It was just unstoppable.”

  1. Reckless was a monumental album, and could only be done justice by a great re-mastering job, as was done in this instance.
