Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: Rockin' In Cleveland 1984 (Audio CD)
I just got this today and couldn't stop listening to it... it's absolutely brilliant. It takes place a couple of months after thier debut album "Bon Jovi" was released. Jon's voice is so young sounding on this early recording and it sends you on a hard rocking, guitar busting emotional ride through their songs from their hard rocking songs from "Breakout" to "She Don't Know Me" to their first hit "Runaway". The song that stood out for me was "She Don't Know Me" it hasn't been played since 1987 and they are reluctant to play it again because they didn't write it. I thought the album version was great but the live version is 10 times better and the song takes you on a roller coaster of emotion, I've been playing that song constantly. All the live songs are exceptional or even better than the studio version. The only downside is that "Burning for Love" isn't on it which is my favourite song from that album, none-the-less this is a must have for all Bon Jovi fans, well for everyone it shows you how tight and brilliant they were when the started out are they are today.
