Since Michael Jackson's untimely death, people have been talking more about him. I hear about him in conversations in the office, in the streets, and I also see lots of discussions about him on the internet. A tribute was even performed by the famous dancing inmates from the Philippines.
(see: Michael Jackson's Thriller)
Also, more people have been interested to hear about The Best of Michael Jackson, so they have been buying more Michael Jackson albums. I discovered that in some record stores, all of their Michael Jackson albums were already sold out. My advice is, if you can't buy your favorite Michael Jackson albums from the local record bar, you can try your luck on the online stores. When buying online, you can choose between buying a CD or downloading the music as MP3.
For the casual fan, I think buying a compilation album is good enough since they already cover most of his chart topping hits. Michael Jackson has had several greatest hits albums made throughout the years. Here are some of the compilation albums available:
- The Best of Michael Jackson (Anthology Series)
- The Motown Years (3CD)
- HIStory: Past, Present and Future, Book I
- Number Ones
- Michael Jackson: The Ultimate Collection
- The Essential Michael Jackson
- King of Pop
Also, according to Wikipedia, A Collection of Michael Jackson's Oldies was the first greatest hits release and it was in 1972, Who knew back then that his career has just begun?
