Notes

This pressing DOES list Michael Jackson as a co-producer on the back cover and is therefore a second pressing or later (see example of the first pressing without the credit: Thriller).

Comes in a gatefold sleeve. LP housed in lyric sleeve.

"G1" etched in runouts denotes a Columbia Records Pressing Plant, Carrollton, GA pressing.

Recorded and mixed using the Acusonic Recording Process. Recorded at Westlake Audio, Los Angeles, CA. Additional sound sources recorded at Ocean Way Recording Studios, Los Angeles, CA.

℗ © 1982 CBS Inc. Manufactured by Epic Records/CBS Inc.

    This press sounds excellent. If you can find a clean one at an affordable price, buy it. I don't have any major sibilance issues with my copy.

      The promo LP I have has PAL 38112-2EB etched on the matrix on side A which I don't see listed here. Is this the same pressing I own? When I search that identifier, the linked page on Discogs comes up as Not Found and a Google search only turns up one results with an album on a Russian site for sale.

        Really happy with this pressing. All the original US pressings are known to have the sibilance issue. I imagine it was a mastering choice to get the overall sound of the album to have a certain amount of presence. In my opinion this still sounds really good. If you're looking for the best sounding audio file versions I suggest trying to find the 12" singles for Billie Jean and Thriller. After listening to those it's hard to go back to the regular album versions.

          What is the difference in regards to value whether or not an original of a Thriller (QE 38112) pressing DOES or DOES NOT list Michael Jackson as a co-producer on the back cover?
          Thanks, Izzy

            Are the numbers on the back cover part of this release or added later?

              Classic
              two years later he made his last contribution with Victory
              ending his career with the Jacksons
              that same year he assisted on the recording of We are the Future and Nosie People by the Future MC's

                    I have two copys of this LP. 7464-38112-1. But one of them does not have "Co-produced by Michael Jackson" written on it. Was this record printed and distributed with different covers?
