After two albums which were popular primarily with hard rock/heavy metal fans,this 1986 platinum smash spawned three Top 10 hits. YOU GIVE LOVE A BAD NAME was one of the top hits of September 1986,when this album was released. The next hit was LIVIN’ ON A PRAYER. Hey,is that Peter Frampton’s “talkbox” on loan heard in the song? The other is WANTED DEAD OR ALIVE,which debuted on the radio in the spring of 1987. All those songs appeared on the 1994 compilation CROSSROAD which would contain a new version of LOAP entitled PRAYER ‘94. The other songs are great. Bon Jovi’s 1988 follow-up NEW JERSEY would be a platinum smash as well.
