Michael Jackson: HIStory - Video Greatest Hits

( 28 )

Overview

In the '80s, Michael Jackson became one of the first artists who utilized MTV to its full potential in order to keep his name and face on the minds of record buyers. This disc, which collects ten of his most famous videos, is a testament to the man's marketing acumen. Each video is presented in its original aspect ratio.

Editorial Reviews

Barnes & Noble
Michael Jackson, the self-proclaimed King of Pop, earned his title by blasting off from his roots as the child star of the Jackson 5 with a series of albums -- Off the Wall, Thriller, Bad, and Dangerous -- that dominated the charts and spawned a string of super-slick music videos, helping to define the infant form. His extraordinary approach to MTV fodder involved stretching his musical concepts into narratives, starting with his seminal video for "Billie Jean." The music video landmarks collected here -- from the wind-blown "Billie" to the explosive "Beat It," from the high-kicking, laser-smooth "Rock with You" to his John Landis-directed masterpiece, "Thriller" -- represent an artist at the top his game. This DVD goes several steps further, though, including such fan must-haves as the rare long versions of "Bad" directed with aplomb by Martin Scorsese from a gritty Richard Price script and "The Way You Make Me Feel." The tracks follow in order, with the original albums marked in parentheses:
  • Brace Yourself HIStory, Part 1
  • Billie Jean Thriller
  • The Way You Make Me Feel Long Version Bad
  • Black or White Dangerous
  • Rock with You Off the Wall
  • Bad Long Version Bad
  • Thriller Thriller
  • Beat It Thriller
  • Remember the Time Dangerous
  • Don't Stop 'Til You Get Enough Off the Wall
  • Heal the World Bad

    An Amazing Collection of Short Films

    This dvd, is probably the best of the two HIStory albums. It features such classic hits as 'black or white' and 'remember the time'. It also has some of Michael's Classics, like 'The way you make me feel'. Overall, an impressive piece of work. Lond live Michael!

    I Also Recommend:

    Great companion with HIStory album.

    I like this DVD because it allows you to see videos that come from this album and well as classic songs. This short film give a glimpse of an artist's view of how to make his music visual (and it make sense) and no one else does that in the music business today or ever. That is why Michael Jackson is the greatest entertainer that ever lived!!

    Michael Jackson (King of Pop)dies

    I am among the tens of thousands who are now snatching up Michael Jackson's music in memory of his monumental contribution to the world of pop music. Regardless of the quality of the content of this purchase, I will, now, have the forever young and vibrant image of a musical icon who died, tragically, before his time. I'm excited about the content of my purchase and will cherish it.
