Recorded at the Hammerstein Ballroom, New York, New York on September 26, 1997.
After spending most of the '90s composing songs for soundtracks and writing weepy ballads (sometimes simultaneously), Bryan Adams finally got around to hopping on the Unplugged bandwagon. Joining Adams's long-time back-up band are Madonna collaborator Patrick Leonard and students of the Julliard School Of Music, making this outing pretty robust-sounding for what purports to be a stripped-down affair.
To his credit, Adams finds unique ways of presenting many of his radio staples. Guest Davy Spillane's uillean pipes breathe life into ballads such as "Cuts Like A Knife," "I'm Ready" and "Heaven." Adams picks up the tempo with successful rearrangements that include a countrified reading of "I Think About You" and a blues medley of "If Ya Wanna Be Bad-Ya Gotta Be Good" and "Let's Make A Night To Remember." Blowing away his wholesome image and proving that kids still wanna rock, Adams' naughtiest hooks pop up during "The Only Thing That Looks Good On Me Is You."
Entertainment Weekly (12/19/97, p.78) - "Adams omits a few of his more rocking hits in favor of schmaltz, but mostly he has fun taking chances on his acoustic gig..." - Rating: B
