I suppose, unless someone has put the catalogue in an old case (which I doubt), it must be the remastered then but my version has an all white spine with 'Cross Road' written in black bold font. No red on it at all.

My remastered version has the white spine, my old verison has the red spine as well as saying "14 Classic Grooves" instead of "The Best Of" :/ The "Exit" sign above Alec is blacked out on the remaster too. Hrm.

Is it like that on anyone else's?

Yeah, a quick search on google images turns up many variations of where the album name text appears in relation to the background image - something I realised when creating my sig. :)

Where yours says "The Bon Jovi remasters", mine is just blank. It also says "14 classic grooves" (or something like that) where yours says "the best of".

I feel like I'm missing out.

14 Classic Grooves was never remastered so you've probably got the original version with Prayer '94 instead of In These Arms (International version) / Tokyo Road (Japanese version).

Cross Road was released as "14 Classic Grooves" in North America and as "The Best Of" in the rest of the world. Unlike the other versions of Cross Road it didn't contain Never Say Goodbye (Hence the 14 in the title), all the other versions of Cross Road had 15 tracks.

When they remastered Cross Road they released "The Best Of Bon Jovi" worldwide and North America got a version of Cross Road with 15 tracks. All the other original versions are out of print and whenever they press new copies they're the remastered versions.

Sound and Vision contains the remastered version of Cross Road.

Actually, there is no remastered version of Crossroad. I mean, in 1998 they released an issue in the series that has the "Bon Jovi Remasters" thing on the side, but I compared all my remastered CDs to the originals. While BJ, 7800, SWW, NJ and KT clearly sound remastered (louder, cleaner etc.), CR and TD just don't: Exactly the same masters as the old ones. And that actually makes me angry, because it's making a promise that's not being kept.. Just cashing in, as many people who have the old ones would go out and buy all the CDs again as the remastered versions are supposed to sound better.

Apart from the advanced sound, the remastered CDs have a louder level and different running times. CR hasn't. The only difference I saw is that they have some programming mistakes, when you jump to "Saturday Night" or "Runaway" you'll miss the first half a second, as they're still part of the previous track or the space in between the songs. So keep your hands away from THAT version!

Correct me if you experienced it differently.

Yeah, my version has a similar issue with LYHOM and YGLABN. The first half-second of track 7 is actually tagged on the end of track 6.

Something I'm also intrigued to know about everyone else's versions of the CD is a little thing I noticed on 'Livin' on a Prayer'. My brother and I were listening through the song at full blast when we were younger (as you do!) and just before KTF kicks in, someone can clearly be heard going 'Ha'. I don't know whether it's a laugh - it sounds more like it was someone starting to speak and then it cuts out but I was wondering if anyone else has this on their copy and which versions it turns up on? Is it on the original as we never checked?
