Decca is pleased to announce its first CD release by Grammy-winning superstar, singer-songwriter Bryan Adams. The Canadian-born, Bryan Adams has sold more than 65 million albums worldwide, garnered 21 top ten hits, earned nominations for three Academy Awards and five Golden Globes, received 18 Juno Awards, an American Music Award and five ASCAP Film and Television Music Awards for Most Performed Song from a Motion Picture (his music has appeared on more than 40 movie soundtracks).What a great CD! When I was given an opportunity to review this cd I had to definitely say yes. I always loved Bryan Adams as a teen, and was surprised to find this cd just as great as his collections then. I love listening to this cd like you are at a concert...listening to the fans cheer and the band talk and even be a little goofy in spots. I forgot just how many songs I really liked by Bryan Adams...this is a great collection! I will be listening to it a lot! Cant help but sing along right now to "Summer of 69"!!!
Slated for release on November 16th, Bare Bones is an inspired collection of minimally arranged hits culled from Adams’ impressive body of work spanning three decades. Recorded in spring of 2010 during his "Bare Bones Tour," the disc captures a raw Adams, featuring only his distinctive voice and guitar, accompanied on select songs by keyboardist Gary Breit, lending a newfound appreciation and perspective to what many consider some of the most beloved songs in pop/rock music. Inspired by his experience recording “MTV’s Unplugged” in the 90’s, Adams decided to revisit performing his material pared down once again in 2008. With a consistently loyal following on the road, Adams continued playing live shows with these new spare arrangements in 2010, and as an experiment decided to start recording them for a possible record. Comments Adams, “as the tour rolled across the USA and Canada, many people were asking for a recording of the songs as they had just heard in the show. So in response to that, I decided to record a few shows to see if a recording was even interesting… I like the way the songs carry themselves warts and all, bare-boned, without the original arrangements of a full band or an orchestra.” He continues, “These recordings only have the voices and handclaps of the fans in the audience and the ambience of the room to lift them.”
