The first album (or cassette tape I should say) I ever bought the day it was released. Saved my allowance for 2 weeks, got off the school bus in the center of town, bought it, and walked 2 miles home. It was also the first CD I ever bought. Still my favorite record ever.
Took me about a month to wear the tape out so I had to buy another one.

25 years?! I was at 6th form when this came out and my friend (appropriately nick named "Rock") got hold of the album (on cassette) first and we played it through lunch hour on that Monday, giving our wise teen critique. Happy times. Great album.

Yeah, I'd love to have a dualdisk with new mixes and complete video collection on the dvd side and the album on the other side. This record is worth creating some kind of set.

I'd love to see that too but it'd fall in the category of being cool and doing the fans a favor - two things we don't get from the BJ camp in general

I was at a concert when NJ came out and Jon popped out a side entrance next to where I was standing and when he reached to the fans my ring got caught in his denim jacket. The security guard thought I was attacking him or something and started beating my hand with a flashlight Jon stopped him, looked in my eyes and asked if I was okay.

I was SURE we made a connection. He married Dorothea the next day LOL

I guess we all grew up and grew older with NEW JERSEY, it will always be my special album, sounds like a sack of soppy shit, but its helped me through some tough times, its been with through some good times and inspired me to go do things that I wouldnt normally have the courage to do, its more or less the soundtrack to some of the best years of my life. Stick to Your Guns, Wild is the Wind, Living in Sin and even Homebound Train take me back to some moments in my life that will never fade. I recall buying a casette copy for my then Girlfriend at the time and proudly presenting it to her like some sort of holy grail....my most vivid and precious memory is sitting at college knocked out by this stunning girl id bumped into in a pub back home, that was (I Thought) way out of my league, just doodling the lyrics down on the back of my coursework folder to STICK TO YOUR GUNS, "aint no livin in the backseat if your gonna drive through town" etc etc it gave me the inspiration and courage to ask her out, she turned out to be "the one that got away".....

HAPPY ANNIVERSARY NEW JERSEY.......a good friend.

I rigged a blogging program so that a line from Stick To Your Guns would appear every time I logged in. At that time, I too, was in need of a little inspiration to "go for it." And considering how badly things could have gone with Tico last week, it's extra nice to be able to enjoy reading through all these good vibes and memories.
