    Reckless is the fourth studio album by the Canadian rock artist Bryan Adams. Co-produced by Adams and Bob Clearmountain, it was one of Adams' most successful albums. Released on November 5, 1984 through A&M Records, the album was a huge international hit, selling over 5 million units in the United States alone. It was the first Canadian album to sell more than one million units within Canada. The album peaked at number 1 on the Billboard 200 and reached high positions in charts worldwide. The album has sold more than 12 million copies worldwide. Six singles were released from the album: "Run to You", "Somebody", "Heaven", "Summer of '69", "One Night Love Affair", and "It's Only Love". All six singles made the top 15 on the US Billboard Hot 100, a feat that at the time had been accomplished previously only by Michael Jackson's Thriller. The album was ranked No. 49 on Kerrang!'s "100 Greatest Heavy Metal Albums of All Time" and was named the #12 Greatest Canadian Album of All Time by Bob Mersereau in his book The Top 100 Canadian Albums. The album was recorded at Little Mountain Sound Studios, Vancouver, Canada. On December 12, 2009 the syndicated radio program In the Studio celebrated the 25th anniversary of the album.
