Scream (2LP Set) Album CoverScream (2LP Set)

The glow-in-the-dark 'Scream' album was released in Europe on October 27th, 2017 by Epic/Legacy Recordings, a new compilation of Jackson's "most electrifying and danceable tracks" set. 'Scream' is the fourth Jackson compilation album and besides the ninth album to be posthumously released since his death, the eighth album being 'Xscape'. The album was later released than the cd album (September 29th).

This album has a full colour poster of Michael Jackson with which you can unlock an immersive augmented reality experience with your mobile phone. The attached image of the album cover of 'Scream' was created by UK illustrator and king of posters Matt Taylor.

The 'Scream' album pulls famous songs from 'Thriller', 'Bad', 'Dangerous', 'HIStory: Past, Present and Future, Book I', 'Blood On The Dance Floor: HIStory In The Mix', 'Invincible' and the posthumous album 'Xscape'. In a statement, Epic/Legacy Recordings noted that, "the choice of tracks for 'Scream' reflects The King of Pop's affection for this time of the year and its themes of costumes and disguise, darkness and light, character transformations and surprise."

In addition to the songs from Jackson's solo LP's, 'Scream' includes two songs that appeared on records by the Jacksons – 'Torture' and 'This Place Hotel' – plus Rockwell's 'Somebody's Watching Me', which featured Jackson on hook duties. 'Scream' also features one newly created piece of music, 'Blood On The Dance Floor X Dangerous', a bonus mash-up put together by production duo The White Panda.

Xscape Album CoverXscape

'Xscape', Jackson's second album of new material that the estate has released in partnership with Sony Music Entertainment , since Jackson's death on June 25th, 2009. The album housed in a gatefold picture sleeve.

it is the thirteen album that was released by Epic/Sony Records in Europe on June 6th, 2014. The album was later released than the cd album (May 13th).

‘Xscape’ features eight previously unpublished Michael Jackson tracks spanning two decades – from the early 80's to the late 90's. These eight tracks have been revisited and “contemporized” by producers including Timbaland, Jerome “J-Roc” Harmon, Rodney Jerkins, Stargate, and Giorgio Tuinfort.

'Xscape' is executive produced by Epic Records Chairman and CEO L.A. Reid, who, after an initial mining of Jackson's archives by the Estate, was granted unlimited access to the treasures representing four decades of material on which Jackson had completed his vocals.Reid curated the final list of recordings to deliver to the producers, who retooled the production to add a fresh, contemporary sound that retains Jackson's essence and integrity. It's a process Reid calls "contemporizing."

The attached image of the album cover of 'Xscape' was created by London designer Mat Maitland. It’s based on a photograph given to Mat by The Michael Jackson Estate; it’s a fairly recent image of Michael but like I say, it’s based on that image and uses parts of it.

'Love Never Felt So Good' composed by Jackson and Canadian singer-songwriter Paul Anka form the first single released from the album, 'Xscape'.

1. Love Never Felt So Good - 3:54

Thriller 25 (2LP Set) Album  CoverThriller 25 (2LP Set)

'Thriller 25' is a 25th anniversary special edition reissue of the Michael Jackson album 'Thriller', the world's best selling album. The prospect of a "second chapter" to 'Thriller' was first publicly discussed on Access Hollywood in late 2006.

Jackson said he would discuss the idea with collaborator will.i.am. It was released in Australia on February 8th, 2008, then internationally on February 11th, 2008 and the following day in the United States.

'Thriller 25' was released by Sony BMG's re-issue division, Legacy Recordings. In the United Kingdom, the BBFC gave it a '15' certificate because it included the video for 'Thriller'. It is the first Jackson album with an age certificate. Along with the original material, the reissue contained remixes, new material, a DVD and collaborations with several contemporary artists.

Two singles, 'The Girl Is Mine 2008' and 'Wanna Be Startin' Somethin' 2008' were released from the album to moderate success and a number of the other remixes charted, despite no physical release. 'Thriller 25' was a commercial success, selling 3 million copies worldwide in its 12 weeks and was generally well received among critics, despite their view that the new material was not as inspiring as the original.

All songs produced by Quincy Jones, Michael Jackson, Bruce Swedien, will.i.am, Kanye West, Akon, Giorgio Tuinfort, Anthony Kilhoffer.

Invincible (2LP Set) Album CoverInvincible (2LP Set)

'Invincible' is the eleventh album released on October 29th, 2001 in the USA through Epic Records. It was Jackson's first full album of only all-new material since 1991's 'Dangerous'.

The cover art of this album was a simple design of just Michael's face. It was available in the standard silver edition, or four limited colours: red, green, orange, and blue.

The album included guests performances by Carlos Santana, Brandy and posthumous appearances by The Notorious B.I.G. and Rod Serling. On 'Invincible', Michael Jackson expanded his vocal abilities as well as his instrumental involvement on the album, playing most of the instruments and performing much of the programming tasks in collaboration with producers Rodney Jerkins, Teddy Riley, and Dr. Freeze.

Just before the release of 'Invincible', Jackson informed then Sony Music Entertainment head, Tommy Mottola, that he was not going to renew his contract, signed in 1991, which was about to expire in terms of supplying the label with albums of full-new material for release through Epic Records/Sony Music Entertainment. By 2002, sales and interest in the album had decreased rapidly, which prompted Mottola to cancel all single releases, video shootings and promotions concerning the Invincible album. Due to this abrupt canceling, Jackson made allegations about Sony not supporting its African American artists. In addition, reportedly racist remarks were made by Sony Entertainment's head, Tommy Mottola. As a result Jackson and other label artists claimed he was a racist who used black artists for his own personal gain. Jackson also insisted that Mottola called Irv Gotti a "fat nigger". Sony issued a statement saying the allegations were untrue since Motolla used to be married to pop star Mariah Carey, who is of Venezuelan and African-American descent, and was currently married with Mexican pop star Thalía.

There were seven singles and videos that Sony and Jackson wanted to release from 'Invincible'. Initially, Jackson wanted to release 'Unbreakable' as the debut single from the album, partnered with a 20-minute music video. However, Sony wanted Jackson to release 'You Rock My World' instead of 'Unbreakable' due to shorter production time of the video accompanying the single. 'You Rock My World' was the only worldwide single release from 'Invincible' and would reach the top ten position in 22 countries. Jackson had also planned to release 'The Lost Children', 'Break of Dawn', 'Butterflies', 'Speechless', 'Cry' and 'Whatever Happens' (with Carlos Santana).

In 2002, Jackson announced that 'Invincible' would be his last studio album with Epic Records.

All songs produced by Michael Jackson, Rodney Jerkins, Teddy Riley, Andraeo "Fanatic" Heard, Kenneth "Babyface" Edmonds, R. Kelly, Dr. Freeze.

There were five covers for the 'Invincible' album, a white, red, yellow, green and blue cover.
