Bon Jovi Question


Recommended Posts

I went to pick up the new Stryper cd today and found a mint condition Bon Jovi - Ultra Rare Trax cd, it is a Silver pressed live cd, anyone know what it might be worth?


this is a bootleg of bsides and rare trax if it's the one I'm thinking of. (think I've got vol 1 or vol 2 somewhere).

as with any bootleg.... worth $5 to one person and $50 to another.

only Official albums are the ones listed on the sit (so One WIld Night would be the only official live album if im correct, although i think that the This Left Feels Right show might have been released on CD)


then theres the power station CDs that came out which are unofficial as far as im aware but ive seen them stocked by big chains like HMV and Virgin


but that sounds like another bootleg to me, if its liev then personally id have no interest in it, but if it were one of the bootlegs with studio demos and cuts then theres some really good unreleased songs out there, especially from the New Jersey sessions because some of them (Love Is War, Lets Make It Baby, Backdoor To Heaven etc) are really good quality and worth hearing....especially since Love Is War is IMO the best song they ever wrote....its a shame it was never released on an album (although it was released officially as a B-Side to Living In Sin)


just some random ramblings about Jovi Bootlegs and Demos :P


if its live like you say then whats the sound like? some of the bootlegs are actually really good soundboard recordings (i have a soundboard recording of a show in Osaka or Tokyo in 89 aswell as the 2008 Tokyo show, those bootlegs are awesome even tho i dont like live albums....)


as for monetary worth, not much :P

The Powerstation CDs are all unofficial as far as being related to the Jovi catalogue but are not bootlegs, it was stuff that Jon didnt have the rights to, hence the fact they have never been withdrawn (and to my knowledge, nobody has ever been sued over them).

Any live CD would most certainly be a bootleg as thats defo the property of the band.

Lets Make It Baby,

I have that on an official Jovi CD album.


I think it was on the second disc of the deluxe These Days wasnt it? either way its not on all releases so i consider it a rarity and thus, bootleg material :D

    • This made my recommended list for last year. Far removed sound/style wise from the awesome debut album and only one of the original lineup is featured,  but very very good all the same. 
    • This was released last year and pretty good it is.   From Andy Rethmeier's Youtube channel: A long time ago, in a galaxy far, far away ... well not quite that far away, Hartlepool in County Durham to be precise, a band of rare quality was formed. That band was called White Spirit and after their debut single, "Backs To The Grind" was released on the legendary Neat Records in 1980, the major labels came knocking. They were eager to snap up a band that had far more to offer than the majority of NWOBHM bands that they were lazily bracketed with. MCA Records won the race to sign White Spirit and with a line-up of Phil Brady, Graeme Crallan, Janick Gers, Malcolm Pearson and Bruce Ruff, their self-titled debut album was released later in 1980 to great acclaim. A constant schedule of touring saw the band build up a large and loyal following, but changes in personnel saw Janick Gers join Ian Gillan, to be replaced by Mick Tucker. Toby Sadler took over bass duties from Phil Brady and Bruce Ruff made way for an unknown singer, called Brian Howe. The new and improved White Spirit entered the studio to work on their second album with then Gillan keysman Colin Towns at the production helm. Alas, the album was never completed, the band broke up and musicians went their separate ways. Mick Tucker joined Tank, later followed by Graeme Crallan. Sadler slid easily into Airrace. Mal Pearson stepped away from music for a spell before returning to action with legends The Sweet. Singer Brian Howe crossed the Atlantic and became frontman for Ted Nugent, before achieving mega platinum success as the replacement for Paul Rodgers in Bad Company. So White Spirit were seemingly consigned to music history, with former members proceeding to forge impressive careers built on this promising foundation.  Four decades on and the location of these 2nd album sessions remained a mystery. Presumed to have been consigned to a skip, as was the fate of so many priceless mastertapes carelessly discarded over the years. The day following Brian Howe’s tragic death from a heart attack in May 2020, Tucker and Pearson were on the phone reflecting on those heady White Spirit days. The missing tapes were once more discussed, but still neither had any idea where to find them. Fate stepped in, and whilst preparing to relocate to France, Mal Pearson was rifling through his furniture in storage when he found a dusty old bedside cabinet. Inside were four sets of tapes. One labelled Chiswick Studios – White Spirit. This was it. The one they’d all thought was lost for ever. The tape was handed over to Conquest Music boss and Tank guitarist Cliff Evans. He arranged for the delicate and risky process of baking the tapes to preserve and retrieve the old recordings and transfer them to digital. Successful as the process was, the sound quality of some elements of the tracks were just not good enough for today’s ears, so Tucker & Pearson decided to replace all of the musical accompaniment with a stellar line-up of players. Neil Murray (Whitesnake) and Russell Gilbrook (Uriah Heep) made up the rhythm section, with the guitars and keyboards replaced by Mick and Mal.   Tracklisting: 1. Right Or Wrong (lead vocals – Jeff Scott Soto) 2 .Runaway (lead vocals – Brian Howe) 3. The Dice Rolls On (lead vocals – Lee Small) 4. Lady Of The Night (lead vocals – Brian Howe) 5. Gotta Get Out (lead vocals – Brian Howe) 6. Better Watch Out (lead vocals – Jeff Scott Soto) 7. Don't Say No (lead vocals – Lee Small) 8. Wait A Little Longer (lead vocals – Brian Howe) 9. Holy Water (lead vocals – Steve Overland) 10. Rock And Roll (Is Good For You) (lead vocals – Brian Howe)
