The Definitive Collection (Limited Edition) [CD+T-Shirt Combo Pack]The Definitive Collection (Limited Edition) [CD+T-Shirt Combo Pack]

'The Definitive Collection' is a limited edition cd album with a T-Shirt. T-shirt is large unisex grey with Motown rainbow detroit logo on the front. This box set was released in September 2009 for the 50th Anniversary of Motown.

'The Definitive Collection' is a compilation album of Michael Jackson released in the USA by Motown/Universal and is the fourth album to be released since his death.

It is a 19-track collection of highlights from his Motown recordings, including the hits he had with his brothers in the Jackson 5. This emphasizes Michael's solo hits over the Jackson 5's -- there are ten cuts of him alone, nine with his brothers (and one of those is an alternate "minus mix" of 'I'll Be There') -- which skews this a little bit toward puppy love over bubblegum, something that may be a little too syrupy for some listeners, but there's no denying that for fans lacking a collection of Michael's earliest hits.

This definitive collection features original hit recordings including 'I Want You Back', 'ABC', 'I'll Be There', 'Got To Be There', 'Rockin' Robin', 'Ben', 'One Day In Your Life' and plus the much-talked about B-side, 'Who's Loving You' and a BONUS Minus mix of 'I'll Be There').
