Awesome all the way around
This was a great album anyway, but now that the anniversary edition of Reckless is FINALLY out, I'm really enjoying all of this extra music. The seven new songs on this album became some of my newest faves after the first listen. Definitely check out "Let Me Down Easy", "Play To Win", "Reckles", "Teacher, Teacher", and all the new songs on this album. You won't regret it if you are a true fan of Bryan's. And if you get a chance to see a show on this tour, I highly recommend it. I just caught one and it was incredible. One show I will never forget!!!!!!
Must Have B-Sides
By Bob Zipper
Remember in Mel Brooks' History Of The World when at one point there was 15 Commandments until 5 were dropped? Imagine that scenario with these well worthwhile lost tracks from Bryan Adams 1984 juggernaut, Reckless. Also worthwhile is the songwriter's verions of the "Let Me Down Easy" & "Teacher, Teacher" made familiar by Roger Daltrey & 38 Special, respectively.
Those were the best days of my life
If you're on the fence on buying this (because you probably still have it on tape or vinyl, as I do), then the live disc from April 1985 should make up your mind. Great stuff, and the unreleased tracks may not have fit the tone of the original album, but they are still excellent.
This whole set is a great reminder of when BA used to ROCK OUT.
Soundtrack for a generation
As perfect as a complete album can be, back when people bought music, bought albums, not just one song at a time. I'm glad to finally own good copies of these long last b-sides. Go Bills!!
