"Anthology" is a compilation album by Canadian singer-songwriter Bryan Adams which contains songs he recorded from 1978 through 2005. The two disc set includes songs from 1980–2005. This definitive collection includes 10 UK Top 10 hits across his career including 2 #1singles. In addition the package includes photographs and an essay by renowned music critic Dave Marsh. Bryan Adams, was born in Ontario, Canada and has developed into the most popular Canadian artist of the late 80s and 90s, and remains known for many timeless romantic ballads and classic rock songs with both sides being showcased on this compilation .
This compilation of music by one of Canada's most important singers is presented in approximate chronological order, beginning in 1980 with Remember. The first Bryan Adams song that I became familiar with is Straight from the heart, which became his first top ten hit in America. It wasn't a hit for him in Britain but Bonnie Tyler covered it for her album, Faster than the speed of night. A hugely successful album that spawned a British and American number one hit, Total eclipse of the heart, it surely can't have harmed Bryan's career to have a cover of one of his songs on such a successful album, even though his name among the credits may not have meant anything to many Brits who bought the album at the time.
