I have so many versions of "Livin' On A Prayer" -- countless live versions, acoustic, unplugged and etc. This version is very, very, very good. Richie's solo is excellent. I love Tico's time keeping. If you bought the CD single of "Superman Tonight," there a superb live, acoustic version on it with Jon holding the note on "It's all that you've got" after Richie's solo. That is probably the second best re-recorded version of the song.
Though this is probably an outspoken view, I think this is THE best version of living on a prayer and I have since erm...1994. It has an incredible mood to it and that guitar solo....good lord...pure, bleeding emotion & soul. Fantastic.
