THE RECORD OF THE WEEK:
THRILLER LP PERU
EPIC S.E.3356

Well. Let me write you some numbers:this is the 61th THRILLER lp copy in the showrrom. 66 including the THRILLER 25 reissues. The goal is to reach 70 lps, right now. And believe me:it's a monster finish line! But the hunt continues, day after day, week after week.
Something evil's lurking from my mind.
And it's close to midnight.
Sing with me:
"Under the screenlight
You see a record that almost stops your heart...." :-)

P.S. There's at least a similar release with a promo stamped yellow label. Same sleeve like this. Beware of some other fake southamerican promos you can see in some auctions (mostly 12'' singles, and usually mexican releases coming with unreleased and never-seen before picture sleeves).

Today's ON THE AIR :
"LIBERIAN GIRL"
BAD URUGUAY LP
EPIC 7001-1

"Liberian girl
You came and you changed my world
A love so brand new
Liberian girl
You came and you changed my world
A feeling so true
Liberian girl
You know that you came
And you changed my world
Just like in the movies
With two lovers in a scene
And she says
"Do you love me"
And he says so endlessly
"I love you, Liberian girl"...

THE RECORD OF THE WEEK:
THRILLER JAPAN
"THE CD CLUB EDITION"
EPIC FCCP40168
We'll talk about "Thriller" this week, and we are goin back to the 90's with another particular reissue, this time from Japan. This is the "CD CLUB EDITION" with an uncommon catalogue number (FCCP40168), released only for the japanese mailorders market "The cd club". This is an official release licensed by Epic Records (see the spine and the cd artwork), and despite it's coming from Japan, it comes with no obi!

Today's ON THE AIR:
"SMOOTH CRIMINAL"
SMOOTH CRIMINAL
KOREA 12'' SINGLE
EPIC DJ229

"As he came into the window
It was the sound of a crescendo
He came into her apartment
He left the bloodstains on the carpet
She ran underneath the table
He could see she was unable
So she ran into the bedroom
She was struck down, it was her doom

Annie, are you OK?
So, Annie, are you OK?
Are you OK, Annie?
Annie, are you OK?
So, Annie, are you OK?
Are you OK, Annie?..."
