BRYAN ADAMS Anthology A&M/Universal (2005)

A two disc collection that unlike his previous ‘Best Of’s’ covers his work from his debut right up until his latest release ‘Room Service’.

Disc one is nigh on classic kicking off with ‘Remember’ and it includes ‘Summer Of 69’, the frankly superb ‘Somebody’ and ‘Lonely Nights’ (although I still prefer the Uriah Heep cover version!). The disc ends with ‘Best Of Me’ and not one duff track in sight.

The second disc, however, is not quite so classic as it does contain a few misses like ‘Have You Ever Really Loved A Woman?’ and a dire remake of ‘When You’re Gone’ now featuring the vocal ‘talents’ of Pamela Anderson whereas the original version was much better with Mel C.

Methinks a marketing ploy as Pamela Anderson is obviously better known in the US I guess. But all is not lost as we have live versions of ‘Back to You’ and ‘I’m Ready’ plus ‘The Only Thing That Looks Good On Me Is You’.

All this and a live DVD as well, making it an excellent introduction to the talent and tunes of Bryan Adams.
