Aswell as including the all time classics and a jaw-dropping live DVD of the Dangerous Tour in Bucharest it lets us dive into some of the songs that have been kept in the Michael Jacksons' vault for some time....
The Ultimate Collection is a chronological timeline that spans 4 decades showcasing one of the greatest singers, songwriters, arrangers, composers and humanitarian to ever live. Aswell as the all time classics, it is the rarities and unreleased songs that captivated me.
It's all very well me preaching the greatness of Billie Jean or the infectious riff of Black or White or the fact that Thriller is STILL the biggest selling album of all time, THIS IS COMMON KNOWLEDGE...!
I aim to take you through the unreleased rarities in this box set as a further reason to purchase this iconic collection:
Shake A Body (Early Demo) - Get an insight into how this song eventually became the disco classic that has been covered countless times and what people still dance to! The Jacksons recorded this early demo in their home studio at Havenhurst.
Sunset Driver (Demo) - An outtake from the 'Off The Wall' sessions, but why this was left off the album is completely beyond me...what could have been another disco classic shows Michael in an upbeat dancing state pumped with plenty of 'WOO's and 'HEE's along the way. With its catchy "You're a Saturday Nighter..AOOW!" line, you'll be humming along to it for hours!
PYT (Pretty Young Thing) - Demo: Unlike the Shake Your Body demo, this is not only an early version, but what can be seen as a totally different song. Not only are the lyrics totally different, but so is the melody, the tempo and the mood.Read more ›
That is why I am pleased with this album: it has not just tried to cram all his great songs onto one disc. It is spread out well over 4 music discs which means you can get some of his unappreciated gems that you never see on greatest hits like 'Stranger in Moscow' and 'Who is it?', which I consider to be two of his finest. I think the 4-disc set up allows such songs to be included on the album and it will hopefully enlighten people to see that MJ is not just about 'Thriller' and 'Billie Jean'; of course these are superb anyway.
The usual suspects are still on the CDs, 'Bad', 'Beat it' for example, but it is good to see unreleased material like 'Beautiful girl' and 'We've had enough', which believe me are fantastic songs as I have heard previews of them on sonymusic.com. I think that 'beautiful girl', if ever released, would easily reach no one spot - its pure genius. It is also great to see songs like 'Some one in the dark' and 'Someone put your hand out' which have probably been heard before by most MJ fans, but these songs are top quality so it is good to see them on the greatest hits even though they were never released as singles.
Furthermore, it is a nice change to see MJs solo work combined with his earlier J5 songs and Jacksons songs. All the J5 songs chosen for the CD are classics with a few rarer songs like 'You can't win'. Again, there are a few unreleased songs sprinkled in there like 'Sunset driver', which is a nice touch as I am sure they will be great.Read more ›
Sure, you probably know Billie Jean, Thriller, Smooth Criminal, etc. But Michael is a prolific artist and has a plethora of magical, soulful pop songs that few people know of. Have you ever heard: Sunset Driver, Someone In The Dark, Scared Of The Moon, We Are The World, We Are Here To Change The World, Cheater, Monkey Business, Someone Put Your Hand Out, Fall Again, In The Back, Beautiful Girl, The Way You Love Me, or We've Had Enough?
Despite being arguably the most talented singer/dancer/performer in the World, Michael has never actually released a DVD of one of his live shows! This is unbelievable considering that every "celebrity" and reality TV contestant has a DVD out now. So, to finally have the Dangerous World Tour on DVD is something to celebrate.
Four audio cds feature a total of 57 tracks including chart hits, album tracks and rarities; with a bonus DVD containing unreleased live concert material from the Bucharest leg of his 1992 Dangerous tour.
Also included in the box set is a 64 page booklet with rare photography, personal memorabilia, a chronological timeline, complete discography, and a liner note by acclaimed author and R&B music journalist, Nelson George.
Having sold 135 million albums worldwide including,the biggest selling record of all time, Thriller, Michael Jackson remains the king of pop.
even if you own all the old classsics such as smooth criminal, billie jean, thriller, black or white, bad, dirty dianna ect... this Boxset is still worth every penny thanks to the fantastic new songs!! plua the amazing DVD live from the dangerous tour filmed in 1992. the performance on that DVD is incredible! and the audio and visual quality is superb!! we all know michael jackson is the worlds greatest dancer and performer and this DVD proves it!!
