THE RECORD(S) OF THE WEEK:
JAM PROMO CD USA (S.Harley and Roger S. mixes)
EPIC/SONY ESK 74333 (YELLOW SLEEVE)
JAM PROMO CD USA (T.Riley & Roger S. mixes)
EPIC/SONY ESK 4583 (WHITE SLEEVE)
 
 
What can I say about these treasures? Jam U.S: promo cds came with an unique sleeve (different from the other worldwide releases) showing Michael Jackson & Michael Jordan playing basketball. Even some "multiflavoured" remixes are still unreleased on a commercial CD format so...Nothing more to say:these cds are, without any doubt, a must-have for EVERY collector!!!

THE RAREST ONE:
THIS IS IT
JAPAN AMAZON.JP EXCLUSIVE STEELBOOK
BLURAY EDITION




 Today I'll show the rarest bluray release of the entire lot:this "Amazon.jp" exclusive steelbook is certainly one of the rarest releases of the movie, due to the chance to buy it only through mail-order in Japan. The box comes with a little sticker on the front case, the obi in the lower side of the case, nad a back artwork totally translated in japanese language!

He knows if you've been bad or good
So be good for goodness sake..."

CHRISTMAS ON THE AIR &
THE RECORD OF THE WEEK:
USA FOR AFRICA - WE ARE THE WORLD
JAPAN PROMO SAMPLE 12'' SINGLE
CBS/SONY 12AP3021
 

 
"...There is a time when we should hear the certain calls
'Cause the world it seems it's right in this line
'Cause there's a chance for taking in needing our own lives
It seems we need nothing at all
I used to feel I should give away my heart
And it shows that fear of needing them
Then I read the headlines and it said they're dying there
And it shows that we must heed instead
We are the world
We are the children
We are the ones who make a brighter day
So let's start giving
There's a chance we're taking
We're taking our own lives
It's true we'll make a brighter day
Just you and me..."

CHRISTMAS ON THE AIR:
I SAW MOMMY KISSING SANTA CLAUS
JAPAN 7'' SINGLE
MOTOWN JET 2077



"Wow, mommy's kissing Santa Claus
I saw Mommy kissing Santa Claus
Underneath the mistletoe last night
She didn't see me creep
Down the stairs to have a peep
She thought that I was tucked up
In my bedroom, fast asleep
Then I saw mommy tickle Santa Claus
Underneath his beard so snowy white
Oh, what a laugh it would have been
If Daddy had only seen
Mommy kissing Santa Claus last night..."

CHRISTMAS ON THE AIR:
"EARTH SONG"
EARTH SONG CD SINGLES ENSEMBLE
(For more details, just click on the page "CD SINGLES" here in the Showroom blog)



"...What have we done to the world
Look what we've done
What about all the peace
That you pledge your only son
What about flowering fields
Is there a time
What about all the dreams
That you said was yours and mine
Did you ever stop to notice
All the children dead from war
Did you ever stop to notice
This crying earth, these weeping shores
Aah, ooh
Aah, ooh
I used to dream
I used to glance beyond the stars
Now I don't know where we are
Although I know we've drifted far..."

Today's WELCOME TO THE SHOWROOM:
SAY SAY SAY
PORTUGAL 7'' (MISPRESSED)
PARLOPHONE 1652527
 
 

The Showroom's welcome today is dedicated to a portuguese 7''release of Say Say Say, with a mispelled label; infact, if you take a look at the B-Side, you will see that "Ode to a koala bear", clearly a song by Paul McCartney only, is credited to Michael too.

THE (RECORD) DVD OF THE WEEK:
THIS IS IT
RUSSIA "OZON" EXCLUSIVE BOXSET - LIMITED EDITION
 
 
What you can see in the pictures is a leather boxset, with a white leather strip (just like an obi). The strip is removable, and when you open the box this is the stuff you'll find inside:
- a 2 DVD SET deluxe edition of the movie "This is it" 
(renamed in russian "BOT'N'BCE")
- A mirrored frame with Michael on it
- An OZON.RU discount card
In a few words, this is truly an amazing deluxe release to own, but very hard to find nowadays.
