Coming on October 28th is the “Super Deluxe” version of Bryan Adams‘ new album, the critically acclaimed So Happy It Hurts. The new double-disc features 12 re-recorded classic hits paired with the recent studio set. The Classic disc of hits will also be available as a double-vinyl release.
The newly-recorded favorites on Classic are: “Summer of ’69,” “(Everything I Do) I Do It For You,” “Run To You,” “Heaven,” “Can’t Stop This Thing We Started,” “Cuts Like A Knife,” “Please Forgive Me,” “Straight From The Heart,” “When You’re Gone (featuring Melanie C),” “Here I Am,” “Back To You,” and “Have You Ever Really Loved A Woman.”
One of the highlights of every Bryan Adams show is his first U.S. Top 10 hit, 1983’s “Straight From The Heart” — a tune he had written half-a-decade before its release on the Cuts Like A Knife album: [“I think about a song like ‘Straight From The Heart,” which I wrote in 1978 and didn’t record it on my own until Cuts Like A Knife in 1983. In that five years of gestation, it was recorded by a few different artists — Bonnie Tyler and all kinds of people recorded it. And then I took it to the studio; I’d rehearsed it, I’d played it, and I took all that stuff that I’d heard other people had done with it and thought ‘Nah, that’s not workin” — so, I was able to (laughs) learn from those recordings of what I didn’t wanna do to make the record that I did wanna do.”] SOUNDCUE (:29 OC: . . . did wanna do)
