I have to tell you that in college, we wore out this Bryan Adams (then)album. Little did we know in '81/82, that in a few years, he would be a superstar. Little did we know he would become a Michael Bolton ballad singing, adult contemporary chart topper, with the likes of Sting and Barbra Steisand! Little did we know that "Coming Home" on "You Want It, You Got It" was more like what we would hear in the future, not the rocking "Lonely Nights".
This album was before all that, before the buzzards were flying around his musical body of work. Bryan Adams rocks on this CD! All are good tunes, yes, even "Coming Home".
I had the chance to see Bryan on this tour as well, and these songs were great live. Obviously, hard core Bryan fans want this to fill out the collection. This is also a chance for a few of us to listen back and think what might have been.
The title track along with "Don't Look Now' are stand outs.
There are other tunes from some of Bryan's other CD's that are good, please don't get me wrong. I even own a lot of them. I just think this one is an excellent example of some of his better musical output.
Bryan has had what?... about 25 top 40 hits? My guess is about half of those hits were ballads. My hope is one day, Bryan will pop in this CD, and think about making something along the lines of "You Want It, You Got It". There are some rockin' tunes on the disc that some folks have not been exposed to. It's worth the time to listen to this one.
Don't hate me Bryan, I just like this one the best.
