Michael Jackson's Bad, Special Edition CD (New)
Michael Jackson: Bad
1 CD. New, unopened, still sealed in shrink-wrap.
Michael Jackson's Bad is the seventh studio album by American singer and songwriter Michael Jackson. It was orignally released in 1987, nearly five years after Jackson's previous album, Thriller (1982).
Written and recorded between January 1985 and July 1987, Bad was the third and final collaboration between Jackson and producer Quincy Jones, with Jackson co-producing and composing all but two tracks. With Bad, Jackson departed from his signature groove-based style and high-pitched vocals. The album's edgier sound incorporates pop, rock, funk, R&B, dance, soul, and hard rock styles. Jackson also experimented with newer recording technology, including digital synthesizers and drum machines, resulting in a sleeker and more aggressive sound.
One of the most anticipated albums of its time, Bad debuted at number one on the Billboard Top Pop Albums chart, selling over 2 million copies in its first week in the US. The album also reached number one in 24 other countries. It was the best-selling album worldwide of 1987 and 1988. By 1991 it was the second-best selling album of all time, behind Jackson's Thriller, having sold 25 million copies worldwide.
Nine songs were released as official singles, and one as a promotional single. Seven charted in the top 20 on the Billboard Hot 100, including a record-breaking five number ones: "I Just Can't Stop Loving You", "Bad", "The Way You Make Me Feel", "Man in the Mirror" and "Dirty Diana".
This special edition CD includes two previously unreleased tracks ("Streetwalker" and "Fly Away"), one track previously unavailable in the U.S. ("Todo mi amor eres tu (I just can't stop loving you)"); an interview with producer Quincy Jones discussing the making of Bad; and a booklet including new photos.
