I remember listening to this right when it came out. I was young enough to not yet know I was supposed to reject Michael as too popular or unclear and instead just loved the grooves and the videos.

My copy isn’t one I’ve had since then – I don’t think I even had a turntable yet in ’82 – but another find from a vinyl fair at Mill No. 5 in Lowell.

MJ also did the illustrations on the inner sleeve.
