    It’s another “greatest hits” package. He keeps putting out GH packages because his’, ‘new material doesn’t sell well in the U.S., but it probably sells well in Germany, where he is beloved still. This GH has sold well in Europe. This news bit is very insulting, saying that “even Carly Simon sold more.” Carly’s got a lot of fans and I’m happy her new cd did well.

    Who knew an MJ album was even out, no press was done for it, but he has enough GH albums, he needs to do new material

    Any of his remaining fans already have this stuff. He no longer gets airplay and hasn’t had a hit since the first child abuse scandal. Apart from a few diehard MJ fans, no one really cares if he put out new material. This sounds like Sony trying to eek out a few more dollars before repossessing his Beatles’ catalogue and releasing him.
