AROUND THE WORLD:
BILLIE JEAN MOZAMBIQUE 12''
TEAL DISCO/TRUTONE MUSIC XEN 5434 (GRC8111)
What you are going to see is a rare,rare,rare press of a "Billie Jean"
12'' maxi single, "FABRICADO POR COMPANHIA DE DISCOS DE MOCAMBIQUE,LDA".
I guess a few copies of this are still around. Trutone music is a South
African record distribution and manufacturing company that had
permission from Epic to distribute, along other records, a Michael
Jackson record only for Mozambique.
They did it with Billie Jean.
Probably someone can think this could not been a 100% official product
but...please take a look at the catalogue number : XEN code is the same
code you can find in several other 12'' releases from South Africa
("Thriller" single for example...or "Torture" & "State of shock" by
the Jacksons...as well as some other 7''s). All from Epic/CBS!!!
This is more than likely the world's rarest 12'' pressing of Michael Jackson's hit "Billie Jean".
This wonderful copy, includes the original TRUTONE company sleeve (even
harder to get a copy like this!) and the Showroom saw it only one time :
when it was purchased!
Side A contains "Billie Jean part 1" (that
is just an edited version of the album version), while side B "Billie
Jean part II" (a.k.a. the instrumental version).
