Bon Jovi had already gained a following with their albums, Bon Jovi, and 7800 Fahrenheit. But it wasn’t until their Slippery When Wet release that they gained the love of many millions of fans. In fact, it can be said that you know Bon Jovi mostly by the tracks found on this album. Those tracks include “Wanted: Dead Or Alive”, “You Give Love A Bad Name”, “Never Say Goodbye”,and “Livin’ On A Prayer”.
It’s never a surprise to discover an album as immensely popular as this one (it sold more than twenty-eight million units worldwide) to get an upgrade every so often. With such an installed fan-base, no matter how diminished it may be now, the numbers still promise a healthy sales kick.
On February 17, Mercury Records will release a Blu-ray-Audio (BD-Audio) Edition of Slippery When Wet (1986) that promises remastering, and hopefully, expansion of the original album with surprise tracks, whatever they may be.
