Preview: Bon Jovi Kicks Off Catalog Campaign With Deluxe "New Jersey"

Artist: Bon Jovi
Title: New Jersey: Deluxe Editions
Release Date: July 1, 2014
Label: Island / UMe
Format(s): CD, 2-CDs, 2-CDs/1-DVD

Bon Jovi will open an extensive catalog reissue campaign with their 1988 album New Jersey. The set will be released as a single remastered CD along with two-CD and two-CD/one-DVD Deluxe Editions.

New Jersey, which has sold 18 million copies worldwide, included five top ten singles in the U.S., Bad Medicine (1988 / #1), Born to Be My Baby (1988 / #3), I'll Be There For You (1989 / #1), Lay Your Hands on Me (1989 / #7) and Living in Sin (1989 / #9).

The new Deluxe Edition restores New Jersey to the way that Bon Jovi originally envisioned. In 1988, plans were in place for the two-CD album Sons of Beaches but the record company decided to go with a single disc which the band called, simply, New Jersey.

The first disc of the Deluxe Edition is the original New Jersey album plus three b-sides and CD bonus tracks. The second contains the demos for the thirteen tracks that did not make the cut that were intended for the double set. Also included is a 32-page book with rare photos from the recording sessions and 16-month New Jersey world tour, plus insider commentary and more.

The Super Deluxe Edition adds a DVD with the documentary Access All Areas: A Rock & Roll Odyssey, shot by Wayne Isham who made the original videos for Bon Jovi's Slippery When Wet and New Jersey songs. Also on the disc are the seven official videos from the album.
