was the self-titled debut solo album by Canadian rock singer Bryan Adams
released in February 1980 on A&M Records
. While the album did not gain attention in the US, "Hidin' From Love" reached #64 and "Give Me Your Love" reached #91 both on Canada's RPM 100 Singles chart.
Making of the record
In early 1978, Bryan Adams teamed up with Jim Vallance
(formerly of Canadian band Prism
) to form a song-writing duo. A&M signed the pair as songwriters and A&M signed him as an artist shortly afterwards. He worked on his debut album for the balance of 1979 with it being released in February 1980.
The first single was "Hidin' from Love" in 1980 (#43 on the Billboard dance charts) which was followed up by "Give Me Your Love" and "Remember". Although the album never received any US notoriety on its debut, it was the door opener that led to getting radio play, tours, management, agents and the music business in general, interested in the 20 year old songwriter.
The first tour was across Canada playing clubs and colleges. It was during this time that Adams developed the songs for the US breakthrough album You Want It You Got It
