Bryan Adams has grown into some­thing of a gen­tle­man rock star – an al­bum ev­ery few years, al­ways good for an all­star con­cert. Ul­ti­mate doesn’t di­verge much from pre­vi­ous hits col­lec­tions, ex­cept to add two from 2015’s Jeff Lynne-pro­duced

Get Up and two new ones: peace sign-flash­ing rocker Ul­ti­mate Love and the Prince-ish Please Stay.

Lucinda Wil­liams This Sweet Old World High­way 20, out now

Twenty-five years on, Amer­i­cana le­gend Lucinda Wil­liams has rere­corded her 1992 al­bum with a live band, chang­ing most of the ar­range­ments and adding four ex­tra tracks. The qual­ity of songs such as Six Blocks Away and Pi­ne­ola doesn’t change, but th­ese takes are grit­tier and al­to­gether less sweet than be­fore.
