"Slippery When Wet" left-overs.

Hi Richard, hi all!

During the "Slippery When Wet" sessions, Bon Jovi recorded two songs that didn't make the album: "Edge of a Broken Heart" was one of them, "Borderline" the other.

"Borderline" was the original B-side of "You Give Love a Bad Name", whereas I think "Edge of a Broken Heart" surfaced as the flip side of "Wanted Dead or Alive".

It's highly likely that the original "Slippery When Wet" singles also appeared in CD format, but both "Borderline" and "Edge of a Broken Heart" were included on one of the "New Jersey" CD singles, though I fail to remember exactly which one at the moment. ...For a big time rarity, see if you can find the Japanese "Borderline" CD EP!

As pointed out in one of the other posts, "Edge of a Broken Heart" later showed up on the "Always" EP, as well as on the Japanese, double CD re-issue of "Slippery When Wet", along with "Borderline" (that particular edition also includes various live tracks from that era). ...What a shame the European re-issues didn't include at least those two album session gems!

In my opinion, "Borderline" and "Edge of a Broken Heart" would have been among the highlights on the album, had they been included!

Geir :-)

PS: Trivia corner ~ British band Briar covered "Edge of a Broken Heart" back in the late '80s ... yet another Jonathan King related misfire ... LOL!
