Product Description

Bon Jovi's four-CD/one-DVD box set of rarities, 100,000,000 Bon Jovi Fans Can't Be Wrong, inspires two immediate reactions. The first: How in the world did Bon Jovi have four discs' worth of unreleased material in their vaults? The second: Who on earth would want to hear 50 rarities from Bon Jovi? To anybody who's not a devoted fan, the New Jersey group always seemed like a quintessential singles-driven band. Sure, they had many albums that were blockbusters -- 1986's Slippery When Wet and its 1988 follow-up, New Jersey, dominated the American charts in the latter half of the '80s -- but those were hits because of the singles that ruled the radio, hits that were so well crafted, it was hard to believe that Bon Jovi left material behind, but as this box set proves, they did. Apparently, the band followed the lead of their fellow Jersey icon Bruce Springsteen and cut more material for each album than they could possibly have used. Starting with Slippery When Wet, the band would record somewhere between 30 and 40 songs for an individual album, then whittle it down to a 12-track album, which means a whole bunch of completed material was left behind. Some of it turned up on soundtracks or foreign-market B-sides, but most of it lay unheard in the vaults until Bon Jovi assembled this box to commemorate their 20th anniversary (which arrived around the time they sold their 100,000,000th record, hence the title). All that explains how this box came to be, but it doesn't address whether the set is any good or not. Surprisingly, the answer is that it's very good indeed. In the liner notes, Jon Bon Jovi claims that the band carefully chooses the songs that make the finished album so the record has a specific flow from beginning to end, meaning that the outtakes aren't necessarily worse than what made the record -- they may simply have been songs that didn't fit the mood or spirit of a particular album. Of course, Bon Jovi's fellow Jersey rocker Bruce Springsteen follows the same aesthetic when he makes his albums, and it's fair to say that 100,000,000 Bon Jovi Fans Can't Be Wrong is the group's spin on the Boss's rarities box, Tracks, which mixed B-sides, demos, and unreleased songs the way that this set does. The big difference between the two is that there are no outright classics on 100,000,000 Bon Jovi Fans -- no songs that are a crucial part of the story, no songs that make it necessary for any curious listener. However, that doesn't mean that listening to it won't make a doubter reconsider their views of Bon Jovi as a singles-only act. What's impressive about the box set is that it's consistently strong and well crafted. Most of these songs wouldn't have stormed up the charts, but they would have fit comfortably on any of the band's records, and sometimes would have been highlights. Bon Jovi were smart to sequence each of the four discs as their own cohesive album, since it gives each disc its own momentum and doesn't isolate all the gems to one single disc. Make no mistake, this box is still for the hardcore fan, who will delight in the rather lengthy collection of behind-the-scenes footage included on the DVD (no music videos are here, just rare footage shot throughout the band's career) and find that the entire set exceeds their expectations, but anybody else who dips into this generous collection will find that the music is strong, varied, well crafted, and often memorable. It's the rare set that enhances a band's reputation, since it reveals that there was more to the band than what was readily apparent on the surface, and that makes 100,000,000 Bon Jovi Fans Can't Be Wrong an excellent way to celebrate the band's 20th anniversary.

In 1986 I was a lonely 14 year old kid without direction, association or general identity. One Thursday evening, I believe I saw a video for 'you give love a bad name' on TOTP....since that day, Bon Jovi has been the story of my life.
This is the kind of sentiment I think many of those 100m fans will relate to, and for which buying this box set will mean so much to as well. It is a real thank you from the band to the people of the world who made them who they are.
The songs are a selection of unheard material that did not make the albums between "Bon Jovi" & "Bounce" - there are some songs that hard core fans will have picked up from movies, B-Sides and bootlegs, but for the 80% majority of the box set - it's all new.
The band have been clever not to order the songs in a chronological fashion, and have not provided the year of the song either, as I think, they probably didn't even know themselves, lookin through the archives !
What is great about this set is the quality of the sound, and the polished, well constructed FEEL to each of the 4 discs - as it really is an album orientated feeling...rather than the bunch of songs thrown in to mark their 20th anniversary.
The DVD is dialogue to accompany some of the songs, and also contains previously seen (for hardcore fans) footage from the Access All Area's & These Days video. There is one amazing revelation in a Jon interview, where he talks about what the original idea and story behind the name of Slippery When Wet, before it was SWW...its amazing, and it makes you wonder what would happened in the world of rock, had it happened ! :-)
What is certain from this box set is that Bon Jovi are moving forward in an exciting new world. This box marks not only the end of some major chapter...

I must admit I was slightly sceptical about this box set, I wasnt looking forward to paying £30 odd quid for a bunch of songs that weren't good enough to make final albums. However after listening to the box set about 30 times in the last two days I can say that certainly isnt the case.
The 4 discs contain 38 totally new songs (with the exception of 2 songs that featured on movie soundtracks) and 12 reworkings of old songs. Nearly every song sounds great, and is accompanied in the booklet with a description by Jon of when the song was written and why it didnt make its prospective album.
There are some truly amazing songs on the box set and no Bon Jovi fan should be without it, and the DVD contains plenty of unseen footage of the band messing about on various world tours.
This box set is not just a collection of songs that weren't good enough to make albums, its a collection of the history of Bon Jovi, the musical and lyrical changes they have gone through.
100,000,000 Bon Jovi Fans Certainly Aren't Wrong

I can't believe how much material is actually in this box set!!! It's great to see a band giving something back to their fans. Bon Jovi could have have easily released 2 or 3 separate CDs and cashed in on the loyalty of their millions of fans. But, they didn't! This is a great xmas pressie for all Bon Jovi fans. The variation of songs on the 4 CDS means that there is something here for everyone.
This is a great collection of music and an absolutely MUST for any die hard fan. The music is classic Jovi (with a few "fun tunes thrown in for good measure). There is a mixture of pure rock, mushy ballads and classic sing-a-long tunes. The only problem is trying to decide which CD to play first.
THANK YOU BON JOVI!

You are not getting the average box set here by any means , they have put together four albums from the out takes of their albums and a few other songs that have not been released before and they really do make great listening, I am a Bon Jovi fan but never before a lover of box sets. I put this one on par with Springsteen Songs box set for quality and it is worth buying. It is also astonishing value for money for 4 CDs and a DVD so how can you refuse !!

If you are a Bon Jovi fan and are undecided as to whether to fork out and buy this box set, I say, go for it - you won't regret it. The content is better than I had imagined it could be. Some of these songs songs are so good it is a surprise they never made it to a BJ album (a few did, and here in the box set we are treated to the earlier versions), but they're here now, and it's a real treat to hear them and read about them (JBJ gives a brief but interesting insight into how they choose album songs). The star of the collection, in my opinion, is Tico's song - it's beautiful and makes me smile!

Bon Jovi fan?? If so its a must have!! Box sets are often mostly different versions of already used songs, not this one!! Here Bon Jovi set the mark for all following box sets, mostly unheard, strong, solid material, some of which is so good it will surprise you how they got left to gather dust in the "Bon Jovi Vaults". Its like they relesed 4 new albums at once, and any Bon Jovi fanatic will absolutley love the DVD. There are a few tracks you may be familler with (Demos of "Always" & "Someday I'll Be Sataday Night, and movie soundtracks "Real Life" and a couple of B-Sides "Temptation") but most tracks are previousley unherd. Also the incover booklet is great! All in all a real treat for any Jovi fan.
