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 Uraih 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.
