Michael Jackson, RIP

While nothing he did musically as a solo artist could ever eclipse his records with the Jackson Five , let's make one thing perfectly clear: his greatest solo album was Off the Wall NOT Thriller!

What a great performance "She's Out of My Life" is...

Just heard an interview of Quincy Jones by Katie Couric. Jones was saving "She's Out of My Life" for Sinatra until he heard Michael sing it!
It's always nice to be validated by Q.

  1. The only Michael Jackson album I own. I recall a while after it came out debating the value of the record with other music dweebs while in college. They all ended up buying the record, because it was decidedly "worth collecting". I think I played it twice. Maybe I should try to figure out how to use eBay... Nah... It's a collector to keep now.
