Michael Jackson
"Thriller" (Vinyl)

In celebration of this weekend's concerts where we played four hours of MJ's biggest hits, I thought it'd be notable to hear the original master perform these same songs.

'Thriller' remains the biggest selling record of all time.  Estimates suggest 60 million copies of the 1982 album have been sold worldwide.  It also obtained a record-setting eight grammy awards that year.
Seven songs on the album were released as single, and all of them charted in the top 10.

I think it's safe to say there might not be another album on the planet with as much notoriety as this one.

Jackson teamed up with producer Quincy Jones (who also produced 'Off the Wall') and gave birth to some of the most famous pop songs ever recorded including "Beat it," "Billie Jean," "PYT" and "Thriller." ...and that's only half of the songs you'd recognize from this album.
