For a Bon Jovi fan this video would be no less than perfect. Fop the neutral, it is nearly there, with a fine selection of the band's greatest hits from the first album 'Runaway' to the single 'Always' which preceded the Cross Road release. However, Bon Jovi are essentially a live music band, and their strength does not lie in music videos or their studio sound. This, coupled with the fact that the videos are of the Radio edited versions of the songs, goes someway to persuading one to watch Bon Jovi Live From London instead.
The VHS companion to the hugely successful 1994 Bon Jovi 'best of' CD package 'Cross Road' contains 16 of the band's classic music videos.
Three of them, 'Dry County', 'Living In Sin', and the Jon Bon Jovi solo song 'Miracle' weren't actually on the record, but make a welcome appearance here. In fact, at the time of it's release, four of the vids had never been previously unreleased, 'Dry County', 'Miracle', Jon's solo 'Blaze of Glory', and 'Always', which had recently become a megahit single, charting at no.2 in Britain.
Although the format is quickly becoming retro, this video tape is still a must-have for the Bon Jovi enthusiast, as it still has yet to surface to DVD.

If you want to hear classic rock songs listen to crossroad. With hits such as Livin' On A Prayer, Keep The Faith, Wanted Dead Or Alive and the softer tunes such as Always, Bed Of Roses and Never Say Goodbye, this is the best album money can buy.

This video is one for Bon Jovi fans. I have been a fan since they started and I love it. "Live from London" is overall the best video, but this one closely follows second. Give the video a chance and buy it, if you don't like it, try sell it, but the chances of trying to sell it are very, very slim (99.999999% you like it 0.000001% you dislike it) But believe you me, you will love it!
