THE RECORD OF THE WEEK : BILLIE JEAN PEPSI GENERATION 
USA PROMO FOLDER SET

Here it is, another wonderful piece that made Michael's HIStory: this is an A4 booklet of 10 pages, released by Pepsi, and it's indeed a little folder which contains a 7'' with the Billie Jean pepsi version. The record contains 2 versions of the song (with different lyrics from the original adapted for the Pepsi adverts), and it has a blank B-side.
The booklet contains Pepsi adverts campaign infos, as well as several images from the spot featuring Michael and the Jacksons.
I love EVERYTHING concerning that era, it reminds when I was a child...I love 80's - and even though the "Bad" era is my favourite, the Pepsi version of Michael's greatest hit will always remain in my heart as a "big picture" of the whole decade.

Today's ON THE AIR:
BLACK OR WHITE
BLACK OR WHITE
MEXICO CASSETTE SINGLE 

EPIC/SONY 34T74100

"They print my message in the Saturday Sun
I had to tell them I ain't second to none
And I told about equality and it's true
Either you're wrong or you're right
But, if you're thinkin' about my baby
It don't matter if you're black or white
I am tired of this devil
I am tired of this stuff
I am tired of this business
Sew when the going gets rough
I ain't scared of your brother
I ain'ts scared of no sheets
I ain't scared of nobody
Girl when the goin' gets mean...."

THE RECORD OF THE WEEK : 
SMOOTH CRIMINAL
COLOMBIA EPIC PML175-88


This is a rare press of "Smooth criminal" released in Colombia (!). Altough it has a generic sleeve used for several companies (among them Epic, Cbs, Emi, Capitol & Walt Disney!), it was made to be matching with the record, as it reports on both sides the artist name and the title. This is very uncommon, and it's the only 12'' released in Colombia during the BAD era (or at least, I don't remember any other one).

Today's WELCOME TO THE SHOWROOM : HISTORY VIDEO GREATEST HITS
JAPAN VHS EPIC/SONY ESVU140 


There's a new item today in the Showroom. It's a rare japanese version of the "HIStory Video Greatest Hits", released with a picture slipcase. This copy is totally sealed with a japanese sticker on the front sleeve shrink; that's why is even harder to find.
