Sony chose not to put any of the videos for the Bad singles on the Deluxe 3CD+DVD reissue of Michael Jackson’s 1987 album. It seemed rather strange to ignore these, but on the other hand it was strange to ignore all the period twelve-inch remixes that could have been included too.
Well, it turns out that US superstore Target has an exclusive version of the two-CD Bad reissue that does include all the Bad videos. This unique three-disc version has a DVD as part of the package with the following exclusive content:
Bonus DVD including the following videos:
- • Bad
- • The Way You Make Me Feel
- • Speed Demon
- • Liberian Girl
- • Another Part of Me
- • Man In The Mirror
- • Dirty Diana
- • Smooth Criminal
- • Leave Me Alone
It is not clear whether these videos include the ‘short film’ versions of tracks like Bad, or whether any 5.1 surround audio is present, but either way, it rankles that you only get this if you live in North America and choose to shop at Target.
Earlier this summer, the I Just Can’t Stop Loving You physical CD single was a Wal-Mart-only exclusive in North America.
What do you think of Record Labels increasingly offering these ‘exclusives’ to stores such as Target? Leave a comment with your views.
