If you’re from New Jersey, chances are you are (or know someone who is) a Bon Jovi fan. They were perhaps the best of the big-haired arena-rockers in the late ’80s and ’90s, and still know how to pack ’em in to this day. And now, it looks like they’re reaching the rarified ranks of solid catalogue artists, thanks to a pretty wide series of reissues from Island and Universal Music Enterprises.

Amazon is listing reissues of ten Bon Jovi albums – everything from 1984’s self-titled debut to 2007’s Lost Highway – for May 11. (Sorry, fans of pseudo-compilation This Left Feels Right; no reissue for this one.) Thus far, they are listed as only having “extra tracks.” But if you’re a really big Bon Jovi fan, you want to know more. What’s that extra material about? Are the boys really recognizing their pre-Slippery When Wet material?
