Notes

Re-issues of Bad feature a number of changes when compared to the original 1987 release:

"Bad" – The original mix was replaced with the 7" Single Mix. The most notable difference is the lack of horns in all the choruses except for the last two. Horns are also missing from the second and third pre-choruses. The rhythm guitar during the choruses is also turned up along with the hi hats.

"The Way You Make Me Feel" – The full length remix used for the single with louder vocals and ad libs added to the end replaced the original album mix.

"I Just Can't Stop Loving You" omits Michael Jackson's spoken intro.

"Dirty Diana" is replaced with the single edit of the song.

"Smooth Criminal" went through two changes on the album. It was remixed to make the kick drum heavier and the bass synth fatter. The quick-sequenced synclavier behind the bass has been rendered mono as well. The first version of this mix left the breathing intact, but was later removed after some time.

      "Bad", together with "Thriller", are the best albums ever and brought Michael Jackson worldwide success. All the songs on "Bad" are famous.
      "Bad", insieme a "Thriller", sono gli album più belli di sempre ed hanno portato Michael Jackson al successo mondiale. Tutte le canzoni di "Bad" sono famose.

        good quality early pressing, very quiet in comparison to my more modern cds, despite being a reissue it still has the original mixes for TWYMF and Smooth Criminal, it also has the spoken intro for IJCSLU

            I have a grey Epic label and blue font variant with a Made in the U.K. sticker on label. Matrix numbers match 01-4502090-20-10-A1

              Sounds amazing, especially for a picture disc. Yah there’s the standard whoosh between tracks but who cares. Great press.

                  I just picked up a Europe copy made in Holland etc. and it matches the matrix number of the 1987 version, but it has a slightly different back cover and the record label does not match anything i have seen here.It has a white background with a blue symbol above the epic label name with black lettering for the song titles, and uses the letters A and B for side names instead of 1 and 2. Don't know how to post a new version. Does anyone have any idea about it or have seen one before?

                    bit compared with Michael Jackson - Bad via foobar2000. the Matrix on my copy is 'DIDP-10645 21A3 +++++'

                    exactly the same audio. you can find the original mix of this album without spending extra for this japanese cd if u look hard enough, i don't know exactly what cds have and don't have it, but my one does!!

                    this japanese cd is a surefire way to get this mix if you dont want to risk getting a cd with different mixes however

                      Perfect for me ! Seems to be not as such dynamic than the original pressing but very very good repress.

                        Incredible sounding pressing, sounds wonderful on my SL-Q2 and it’s also the original 1987 mix before the 1988 mix was made. A must have for MJ fans that collect vinyl, if not, the CD is also an amazing pressing.
