Rediscovered track of the month: Jul â€˜09
I had thriller and loved it but never followed up with any of the later releases. It always seemed to me that the subsequent albums weren’t so good and the private life scandals muddied the waters for me. Maybe now, like everyone else, I’ll reassess the catalogue. If you too, feel that Jacko wasn’t that good post Thriller then check out this video of him recording vocals for some charity record. The talent is clear to see, no?
Incidentally for some of the most fascinating behind-the-scenes information on how Jacko worked as an artist check out this forum for sound engineers. Some of the people who’ve worked with him over the years sing his praises in the studio environment.
