Notes

Greatest hits album and DVD, initially released on November 17, 2003 worldwide and on November 18, 2003 in the United States. The US version, International version and DVDs have slightly different track listings. The release was officially marketed as album and should be tagged as such as well as compilation.

There were four different covers: a shot from the “Don’t Stop ’Til You Get Enough” music video (1979), a shot from a “Billie Jean” live performance (Dangerous World Tour 1992/93), a shot from the “Bad” music video (1987), and a shot from the “Black or White” music video (1991). These represent, respectively, the Off The Wall era, the Thriller era, the Bad era, and the Dangerous era.

The releases themselves identify those different covers as:
CIRCA 1979 “OFF THE WALL” PERIOD
CIRCA 1984 “THRILLER” PERIOD
CIRCA 1988 “BAD” PERIOD
CIRCA 1995 “HIStory” PERIOD
Accordingly, the releases are identified in the format Free Text Field as Off The Wall-Period Cover, Thriller-Period Cover, Bad-Period Cover, or HIStory-Period Cover. (discussion).

An exclusive slipcase was also available from Sony for purchasers of all 4 covers to store them in. This had a catalogue number of XPCD 2893.

          The track list does not match the track list on the artwork. The artwork is correct.

            Eine Videozusammenstellung des King of Pop, mit den Hits, die auf Platz 1 gelandet sind. Zeitgleich erschien diese Zusammenstellung auch auf CD. Was soll man noch viel zu den Videos von Michael Jackson sagen? Es sind nicht einfach nur Videos, sondern fast immer Kurzfilme, was besonders auf „Thriller“, „Bad“, „Black or white“ und „You rock my world“ zutrifft. Nicht ganz so spektakulär sind die Videos zu „Don´t stop `til you get enough“ und „Rock with you“, wo bei letzterem sogar ein modischer Fehlgriff mit dem Glitzeroutfit gemacht wurde. Unvergessliche Szenen gibt es mit den aufleuchtenden Gehwegplatten in „Billie Jean“ und dem Gangsterkampf in „Beat it“. Der Kurzfilm „Thriller“ ist nicht umsonst zu dem „Besten Video aller Zeiten“ auf MTV gewählt worden. Leider wurde nur die Short-Version von „Bad“ hier veröffentlicht, denn auch davon gibt es einen 16minütigen Film. Um auf das Leid auf der ganzen Welt aufmerksam zu machen, müssen auch die schrecklichen Szenen gezeigt werden, wie in „Man in the mirror“. Das Video zu „Smooth criminal“ wurde aus dem Spielfilm „Moonwalker“ zusammen geschnitten. Eines der langweiligsten Videos stellt „Dirty Diana“ dar, trotzdem wird dieser Song immer meine Nummer eins sein. Auch „Black or white“ wurde um das viel diskutierte Ende gekürzt, wartet aber mit dem Gastauftritt von Macauly Culkin am Anfang auf. Das wunderschöne Liebeslied „You are not alone“ wird durch den Auftritt seiner damaligen Liebe Lisa Marie Presley - wohlgemerkt halbnackt - natürlich verfeinert. Der Künstler Michael Jackson schlüpft immer wieder in andere Rollen, wie dem Weltretter im „Earth song“, dem Latin Lover in „Blood on the dance floor“ oder dem Mafiosi in „You rock my world“. Beim Video zu „You rock my world“ holt er sich prominente Hilfe in Person von Chris Tucker und Marlon Brando, was dem Video einen Toch von „Der Pate“, „Smooth criminal 2“ und „Donnie Brasco“ verleiht. Fazit: Das Thema „Number Ones“ wurde getroffen, meine persönlichen Lieblingsvideos wie „Remember the time“, „In the closet“ oder „Scream“ fehlen dadurch leider.

                  There are only 3 cover periods in Chile!
                  HIStory, Bad and Thriller.
                  The covers vary from country to country in the caption and cover picture and the back.
                  The Image here is not available in Chile.
                  See the cover back here. It's thriller!

                  It's curious! Korea and Japan press has another Thriller Cover, too.

                    There is no denying Michael Jackson’s cultural significance (Music, Dance, Video, Fashion?). I enjoyed listening to this collection even though it does cover the latter part of his career, most of which I consider not to be his finest.
                    House music has always been a tough sell for me so the remixes of You Are Not Alone, Blood On The Dancefloor and Black Or White (with embarrassing ‘Rap Kick’) I found pretty unimaginative. However Earth Song was much improved by being Housed up.
                    The brilliance of MJ is most evident not on the singles but on MJ Megamix and Michael Jackson Anthology Mix because they cram in the best briefly. Well they should do, shouldn’t they.
                    Whilst listening to this collection I was reminded of my most memorable MJ performance, which was back in 1996 when he performed Earth Song at the British Phonographic Industry's annual pop music awards The Brits. Jarvis Cocker from Pulp ‘stormed’ the stage and made what I thought was a very amusing protest. I ended up going out and buying Pulp - This Is Hardcore.
                    Twelves confirmed that I am happy for MJ to be one of those Artists that I don’t mind listening to on the radio at work, rather than one of those Artists I listen to as part of my record collection.
