Bon Jovi - Bon Jovi

The Bon Jovi album has been re-released many times, most of them were re-released in Japan but some editions made it to an international release or other. In just Japan alone the album has been released in over 10 different editions. Below is a list of all the re-releases the record company decided to release over all the years. Very often during the release of a new Bon Jovi album, Universal Japan decided to re-release the rest of the discography as well. This made older editions harder to find while new editions were more expensive.
