Just the best way to listen to Bon Jovi, ever!,
This review is from: One Wild Night - Live 1985-2001 (Audio CD)
As Lonn Friend sayz in the liner notes: "The magic of Bon Jovi live".
Magic is the right word. Right from the mind-blowing opening chords of "It's my Life", this album shows comprehensively why Bon Jovi are as big as they still are.
All the classics are here, as well as a couple of others that should be counted as such:
There is the 1995 cover of the Boomtown Rats' "I don't like Mondays", performed with Bob Geldof himself, a passionate outburst as suited to the tenth anniversary of Live Aid as any song could hope to be. As well as that, there is one of the most lifting Bon Jovi songs of all time: "Just Older", which right from its opening drum beats became my favourite Bon Jovi song of all time.
The audience sing-alongs, the new guitar intro for "Wanted Dead or Alive", it's all here; Bon Jovi live is unbelievable.
(But where's "Lay Your Hands on Me"? Are they keeping it for next time or what?)
