Notes:
Cross Road is the first greatest hits album by American rock band Bon Jovi, released on October 11, 1994 by Mercury Records. The album contains hits from between Bon Jovi (1984) and Keep the Faith (1992) and two new tracks: the hit singles "Always" and "Someday I'll Be Saturday Night", as well as a new, updated rendition of "Livin' on a Prayer" entitled "Prayer '94" available only on the North American versions.

"Runaway" was never recorded with the current band, though at that time there were plans to put a "Runaway '94" on the album but it was never recorded. The diner located on the cover of the album is the Roadside Diner in Wall Township, NJ, near the crossroads of Route 33 and Route 34.

"Always", the album's first single, became Bon Jovi's highest selling single in the United States, spending six months on the top ten of the Billboard Hot 100 and was also an international hit which helped the album peak at number one in 13 countries. Cross Road was the best-selling album of 1994 in the UK. The album is Bon Jovi's best selling album in many countries, and continues to sell well. The album has sold over 21.5 million copies worldwide, and has been cited as one of the best-selling albums of all time.

In 2005, Cross Road was re-issued as a 3-disc box set under the name "Deluxe Sound & Vision", which included the original remastered album, a bonus CD containing b-sides, rarities and fan favourites, and the Live from London DVD. The original remastered album was released in 1998. A video, also entitled Cross Road, was simultaneously released, containing 16 of the band's music videos.

Interesting fact.........The label wanted an album in 94 but JBJ hadnt finished what would become These Days and also wasnt sure what direction the sound was heading. He agreed to a Greatest Hits albums and put Always (song that was on the shelf for a few years) - and Some Day Ill be Saturday night. The Box Set 100,000,000 fans cant be wrong is full of songs that were going to be used on that album scheduled for 94 but never got used. JBJ also says that he wished he had saved Sat Night for These Days as it fitted with the moody sound of the These Days album.
