If you're even considering Bon Jovi or 7800 (those first two particularly) - get the remasters from 98/99? They sound far better than the original vinyl that was just dumped onto CD.
Since I bought all my stuff recently, I have the remasters of all the early albums. (Thursday marks the anniversary of my first Bon Jovi purchase. Busy year! LOL) Some of the novelty stuff that was released on vinyl early on is sort of tempting when I see it on eBay. Of course, I find LOTS of stuff on eBay tempting! I'm so weak . . .
