Recorded January – July, 1988 at the Little Mountain Sound Studios in Vancouver, Canada.
In 1988 New Jersey spent 4 straight weeks at No. 1 in the U.S. and spawned five Top 10 singles (“Bad Medicine;” “Born To Be My Baby;” “I’ll Be There For You;” “Living In Sin;” and “Lay Your Hands On Me,” – the only rock album ever with that many Top 10 hits. The album is multi-platinum in the U.S. and has sold more than 10 million copies worldwide.
Bon Jovi originally envisioned the New Jersey project as a double-LP, using the working title Sons Of Beaches. But in the end, Mercury Records released the album as a 12-track single LP and the band renamed it simply New Jersey, in honor of their home state. With this Deluxe edition, the New Jersey originally imagined by Bon Jovi can finally be shared with fans.
The 2-disc Deluxe Edition first disc includes the remastered original album, plus three bonus tracks. The second disc features the 13 Sons Of Beaches demos from the New Jersey recording sessions, remixed exclusively for this project.
