November 30, 1982 – Michael Jackson’s Thriller is released.
It became the biggest selling album in both U.S. and international history, with more than 110 million copies sold and counting.
It also revolutionized the making of music videos and confirmed Jackson’s place as one of the greatest artists and entertainers of all time.
This is Erika Bale. She’s seen the Beatles over 200 times!! Erika used to skip school and see them at The Cavern Club during their tea time set. She said they played twice a day and she would go both times. She was a fan when they were just a little skiffle band from Liverpool. I asked her if she was one of those screaming girls. “Oh No! I was a fan before all that nonsense.” She even had dinner with Pete Best! Erika was super cool!
Jeff Magid from Columbia records told an entertaining story. He was listening to one of the Beatles test pressings and heard a faint chirping noise. After checking cables and listening again, it was gone. Then it returned. He moved a speaker and there was a small beatle behind it. The bug flew at him and he screamed! Then he promptly smashed the beatle..(sorry PETA). heh heh..
Please join me on November 28th at 7:00pm. There will be a guest representative from Capital / Apple Records who was involved with the remastering process. The Beatles LP’s will be played on a Naim / Rega turntable system. If you want a box set, please RSVP and I will try to get enough of them in. $349
The new addition to Naim’s “Uniti” line is breaking in nicely. UnitiLite is a high-end audio all-in-one system delivering maximum sound quality, convenience and simple understated looks.
