iTunes Releases 270 Michael Jackson Rarities & Remasters


iTunes has compiled a massive trove of rarities and remixes from Michael Jackson's catalog to present The Indispensable Collection and The Ultimate Fan Extras - a two-part box set of over 200 songs that includes his classic albums alongside harder to find material. The compilations are the result of a collaboration between Epic/Legacy Recordings and Michael Jackson's estate, whose stated goal was to present two meticulously curated and well packaged collections for fans of the late singer. The box set features demos, remixes, live performances and full albums. The Indispensable Collection includes remastered classic albums, a handful of remixes and a full concert recording from the Bad era of Jackson's career. The Ultimate Fan Extras includes more demos, B-side recordings, remixes, collaborations and live performances with The Jacksons. Check the tracklistings for both compilations below.
