Greatest Hits: HIStory, Vol. 1

Greatest Hits: HIStory, Vol. 1

by Michael Jackson


Here's HIStory: Past, Present and Future, Book I, split in half. More specifically, this is the disc of hits compiled for that release, sold separately, just in case you have no interest in the original release's second disc of new material (which included some hits in its own right, like "Scream," "Earth Song," "You Are Not Alone," and "They Don't Care About Us"). This covers 1979's Off the Wall through 1991's Dangerous and isn't quite thorough, but it does contain 15 of Michael Jackson's biggest singles, from "Rock with You" through "Remember the Time," many of which were major pop touchstones, unavoidable during their peaks.

This is Michael Jackson's best-but remember, it's only vol. 1. And if you like this, you'll love to hear that Michael Jackson is coming out with a box set due November 16 of this year (2004)! The box set is entitled The Ultimate Collection has 4 CD's and 1 DVD and features unreleased songs and even 3 new songs by Michael Jackson!
