DIGGING DEEP...

Canadian rocker Bryan Adams signed for A&M Records in 1978 and his first single, 'Let Me Take You Dancing' came out the following year and was a minor hit in his home country. His self-titled debut album came out in 1980 and by the time of 'Into The Fire', his 1987 album, Adams had released four other albums including 'You Want It You Got It' in 1981 and 'Cuts Like a Knife' in 1983. The latter album includes the single 'Straight From The Heart' that became Bryan's first US top 10 record. It wasn't until 1985 that Adams made his break through in Britain and Europe when the classic, radio friendly, anthem, 'Run To You' made No.11 in the UK and was a hit in a number of other countries. In the US it made No.6, however, that success was eclipsed later in the year when 'Heaven' topped the US charts; somewhat surprisingly it did less well in Britain and elsewhere. All this action helped take 'Reckless', the album from which both 'Run To You' and 'Heaven', along with a string of other singles, including the 'Summer of '69', to No.1 in America and top 10 in a host of charts around the world. While 'Into The Fire' performed less well in America, reaching No.7, it was a big hit in many countries in Europe. All this was just a prelude to what followed when 'Waking Up the Neighbours', Adams's 1991 album, went to No.1 in the US, UK, Canada, Australia, Germany and a string of countries worldwide. It included the record-breaking '(Everything I Do) I Do It for You' that became his second No.1 hit single in Billboard Hot 100. The song in the movie Robin Hood: Prince of Thieves and topped the charts in numerous countries around the world including France, Australia and Germany and the UK where it spent an astonishing 16 consecutive weeks at number 1 on the UK Singles Chart Bryan's albums continue to mine a rich vein with their well crafted, well performed, songs that resonate with fans around the world.
