Released in September 1988, New Jersey sent five singles into the Top 10: “Bad Medicine,” “Born to Be My Baby,” “I’ll Be There for You,” “Living in Sin,” and “Lay Your Hands on Me.” Yet the band had originally envisioned the album as a double LP called Sons of Beaches. This 2014 deluxe edition of New Jersey includes the original 12-song release remastered, plus three bonus tracks that were issued as b-sides or CD-single bonus tracks: a cover of Thin Lizzy’s “The Boys Are Back in Town,” “Love Is War,” and an acoustic version of “Born to Be My Baby.” From there, 13 demos from the Sons of Beaches project—more than an hour’s worth of music—create a new album of sorts. “Homebound Train” starts with harmonica and a sense of the blues before turning into a full-blown hard rocker. Band harmonies are as strong as ever, and the less produced sessions let the band’s basic chemistry shine through on tracks like “Growing Up the Hard Way,” “Love Hurts,” and “House of Fire.”

After ushering in the era of pop-metal with their 1986 blockbuster Slippery When Wet and its hit singles "You Give Love a Bad Name," "Wanted Dead or Alive," and "Living on a Prayer," Bon Jovi wound up transcending the big-haired '80s, withstanding changes in style and sound to become one of the biggest American rock bands of their time -- selling over 120 million albums worldwide and sustaining their popularity well into the new millennium. As the times changed, so did the band's sound. They slowly peeled away the arena rock guitars of the '80s, occasionally scoring on the adult contemporary charts and sometimes singing country music without ever rejecting hard rock, a move that illustrated how they never abandoned their roots and became second only to Bruce Springsteen in defining the sound and spirit of New Jersey rock & roll.
