    A fantastic inside look at one of the best selling and influential albums of all time. Includes the story behind Michael’s collaboration on the E.T. soundtrack, against his label’s wishes. Especially amazing to hear how the label was basking in the album’s success before Michael told them they had to make one more video, which turned out to be Thriller. And how Michael went about funding a video with a budget of $1.2 million when the average cost for a music video was $50K. The audio and video are both outstanding, just like everything MVR produces. If you’re an MJ fan this is a must have. Buy this!
