As part of Bon Jovi's 30th anniversary celebrations, new remastered editions of their New Jersey album will be released this year. The Deluxe Edition will be a 2-CD set featuring the full album plus bonus tracks on the first disk, and unreleased demos from what was intended to be Sons of Beaches (before it was whittled down to the 12 tracks we know as New Jersey) on the second disk.

The New Jersey Deluxe and Super Deluxe editions are set for release on July 1, although Australian music site Noise11 lists a June 27 date, so presumably the release dates will be staggered in different parts of the world. Other albums are set to get the "special deluxe" treatment this year, too.

  1. I am shocked at the way that this has been packaged. It has been packaged in such a way that I nearly broke the second disc trying to get it out. It has ruined the whole experience for me, and I am looking to re-sell or get my money back from amazon. I am totally shocked, angry, upset and heartbroken that this has been done this way, and would encourage finding the bonus stuff on YouTube and Video instead. To add insult to injury, the essay writer thinks this album's 25 years old. It's not, it's 26. I have made some bad buying choices, but this one takes the mickey. I don't even like Bon Jovi anymore, and I was hoping this would help me find that love again. No way. I will be avoiding anything else in relation to this 30th Anniversary celebrations, and it will be my loss. But my gain is I will glad I got rid of this 30 years down the line.


Thanks for giving me your time.
