Now Michael has only released 6 full albums of new material in the past 25 years so chances are that most already have the hits in one form or another so why buy this set? Consider the following list of all the rare and previously unreleased songs in this collection.
Enjoy Yourself - The Jacksons first hit from their first album with Epic
Ease On Down The Road / You Can't Win - both from The Wiz Soundtrack
Shake A Body - previously unreleased demo of what became "Shake Your Body Down To The Ground"
Sunset Driver - previously unreleased demo
P.Y.T. - previously unreleased demo
Someone In The Dark - track from the rarely heard E.T. Storybook
State Of Shock - duet with Mick Jagger (!Read more ›
Taken at face value, this collection is exceptional and offers quite an overview of Michael Jackson's recording career. Overall, most of the hit songs are here, but as far as rarities, the most obvious omission is the Thriller era b-side "Can't Get Outta The Rain." Also, the set would have been worth the price alone had they included his one-time performance of "You Were There" from the Sammy Davis Jr. Anniversary TV Special or Michael's anthem from the Siegfried And Roy Las Vegas Show, called "Mind Is The Magic."
The good news is that fans who buy this collection will get a few cool songs and demos from the MJ vaults. One song in particular, "On The Line" (written by Babyface) and found only as a bonus track on a European CD single, is so good it is surprising it was never issued as a single in the U.S. back in the 90's.
The bottom line is that "The Ultimate Collection" will be a great addition to any diehard MJ fan's CD collection, but it will leave them skipping past the songs they already own several times over and ultimately leave them wanting even more.
