Bryan Adams- So Far So Good/ So Happy It Hurts

“So Happy It Hurts” is the Canadian rocker’s fifteenth (!) studio album, and he’s not even old enough to get the Early Bird Special down at Denny’s. Adams became a star way back in late 1984 with “Reckless”, one of the Eighties’ biggest sellers, then in 1991 absolutely crushed it with “Waking Up the Neighbours”, an all-time biggest selling album in history. Bryan Adams’ seventh studio album, “18 ‘Til I Die” , was a #1 seller in the UK and Top Five sales internationally. But when  “18 ‘Til I Die” came out in June 1996, US rock radio programmers decided, in spite of the music actually on the album to the contrary, to brand Bryan Adams a love song balladeer, not rock enough, not alternative enough, not cool enough. Adams finally addresses the issue with tongue firmly in cheek on the song “Kick Ass” from “So Happy It Hurts” with the help of the brilliant British pillar of Python humor, John Cleese, who has been skewering pompous pundits for half a century. Also listen to the infectious “Never Gonna Rain Again” which could be Bryan Adams’ next big hit.

Stevie Nicks- Bella Donna

In July 1981, Stevie Nicks already was in arguably America’s most popular band, Fleetwood Mac, but her first solo album then, “Bella Donna”, took her career to another level entirely, a fact that was by no means guaranteed and which came at some cost.  Stevie spells it all out quite candidly In the Studio while revealing the stories and characters behind “Edge of Seventeen”, “Leather and Lace” with Don Henley, and the timeless duet with Tom Petty on his “Stop Draggin’ My Heart Around”.

Peter Gabriel- So

(cont)…It was not until stumbling into the broadcast media/entertainment business that I got to witness, up close and personally, individual musicians who have been given enormous powers of influence through the modern phenomenon of celebrity, by the very people who they entertain. Case in point is this week’s classic rock interview subject: ex-Genesis lead singer Peter Gabriel had a cult following after four studio solo albums, with his most significant creation being the ground-breaking “Shock the Monkey” video. But with the May 1986 release of So (#1 UK,#2 U.S., over 5 million sold; 4 Grammy nominations including Album and Record of the Year for the #1 hit “Sledgehammer”), Peter Gabriel was vaulted into international pop stardom with all of its attendant door-opening , barrier-eliminating amenities…(more)

Collective Soul- Collective Soul 25th Anniversary- Ed Roland

But after selling over a million copies of the album “Hints, Allegations,and Things Left Unsaid” primarily on the phenomenon of “Shine” alone, the second album in March 1995 simply under the name “Collective Soul”, and containing “Where the River Flows”,”Gel”,”December(Spit Me Out)”, and the gorgeous “The World I Know” is one of the strongest sets of melodies and tasteful arrangements to come from the era. And it has been remastered and expanded for a special twenty-fifth anniversary edition on both compact disc and double vinyl. Ed Roland is my guest In the Studio.
