Bon Jovi will celebrate 30 years of living in sin with a massive catalog reissue campaign that kicks off July 1 with a remastered edition of their 1988 album ‘New Jersey’, Rolling Stone reports.
That record, which reached #1 on the Top 200, contained five singles, including the “Bad Medicine”, “I’ll Be There for You”, “Lay Your Hands on Me” and “Living in Sin”. The new version of the record will appear in three iterations, a single disc reissue, a two disc deluxe edition, and two CD, or a two CD/one DVD super deluxe edition, the latter two packed with bonus material.
The two-disc deluxe edition will feature three bonus cuts initially released as B sides, as well as 13 previously unreleased demos from the ‘New Jersey’ recording sessions that were originally intended to appear on a double-LP titled Sons of Beaches. The deluxe edition will also come with a 32-page booklet filled with insider commentary on the bonus cuts and rare photos from the New Jersey recording sessions and ensuing world tour. Meanwhile, the super deluxe edition includes a 60-page softcover book and the behind-the-scenes documentary, Access All Areas: A Rock & Roll Odyssey, directed by Wayne Isham, who chronicled Bon Jovi’s 16-month, 26-country New Jersey world tour, including their legendary show at Lenin Stadium in Moscow. The footage was initially released in 1990 on VHS, and this marks the first time it will appear on DVD.
