    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.

      Hallo ,
      Habe von einem Kollegen einigen LPs geschenkt bekommen . BAD von Michael Jackson ist ebenfalls dabei . Die LP ist in einem recht guten Zustand , auf der Rückseite ist oben rechts ein Aufkleber angebracht mit der Aufschrift Club Edition EPC 15 058-1 ( 07-150581-20 ) Könnt ihr mir sagen was der bedeutet ?

        The 1987 release features different mixes for "Bad", "The Way You Make Me Feel", "Smooth Criminal" and "Dirty Diana". Horns are inclueded in all but one chorous parts of Bad, TWYMMF got no ad-lips during the fade-out, Smooth Criminal got different bass sound and Dirty Diana features a longer fade-out with a hearable extended solo cut of Steve Stevens. Later releases were replaced with their single versions respectively.

          picked this up at a flea market VG+ sleeve and record for £10!
          the seller thought the record was damaged when actually was paper scuffs and to odd nail mark....The actual quality of the record is top notch after a clean feeling very lucky rn no pops or damage across the grooves

            In my copy the runout description is:

            [Runout description]:
            Etched part of each runout: 'PA(B)L-40600-HOL-(n) (x)'. -> OK
            Second part of each runout (starts with 01-) is stamped. -> IN SIDE 1 IS ETCHED AND SIDE 2 STAMPED!!

            Anyone else have this kind of situation?

              I purchased a used copy and it's the quietest and best sounding record I own, and it's not even close.
              However this was made, it's a lost art.

                Very good pressing, quiet vinyl and big sound. The quality is amazing, sounding just like as new.

                  This 1987 copy sounds amazing and clear like it’s still brand new. Definitely great quality and one of his best albums

                    Hold this European press having a misprint. A side label is printed on both sides with the right music. Haven't found any info on this? Any idea if this is a common mistake?
                    • mike.fontaine93's avatar
                      I can't believe after all these decades this vinyl is still silent and amazingly dynamic.
                      If you can find a good copy it's a keeper.
