Biggest release from Michael Jackson. Impossible to follow up. Also known for the longest MTV video ever.

I believe mine is this Pittman pressing, but it has "P PAL 38112 - 2ED" as the etching...can't find that one listed anywhere. Anyone know anything about that?

A fantastic pressing all around! The sound is crystal clear, dynamic, and has crisp and detailed highs as well as defined lows. A must have for any kind of starter vinyl collection

I had the Music on Vinyl version from 2009, bought this one, compared them, Bernie Grundman mastering beats MOVL hands down. If you can get this version in at least VG+ grading you are ready to go ??

How are all of these different? All seem to have MJ listed as a co-producer, and have similar runouts with a P.
