    He definitely mentions Biffalo Bill in that unauthorised interview in 83/84

    For the Bad album? With full vocals? Why did they use 2008 vocals for the MICHAEL album version? Where did you found that info? Can you please give me some more info or a source where can I read more about that?

    Yes some people have heard an earlier version of Best of joy and the earliest demo dates back to 81-82, (I think). It went under the name "Toy" and was suppose to be in the Richard Pryor movie of the same name. One of MJ collaborators has corroborated this. Can't remember which one though.

    Really, Best of Joy is from the mid 80s? I thought it was from 2008. I absolutely adore that song and would love to hear the Bad era version of it.

    I think the info was posted on some private Facebook group a while ago. As for them using the 2008 version, it was probably because it was one of the last things he recorded.

    Oh wow. Clearly MJ was fond of the song hence why he was still working on it in late 2008.

    Yeah, is quite fascinating. Same thing with Messin Round, first demoed for Thriller and worked on for every subsequent album after that all the way up to 2008

    He was fond of it for good reason too.
    It's a great song.

    I love Messin Round as well. If I'm not wrong, the version released on Bad 25 is the Bad era version and that there is a more complete version still in the vaults? If yes, then I would love to hear it. I love that song.

    It is indeed. Michael's voice is absolute heavenly in it. He sounded so good at 50.

    Yes, the Bad 25 version is an early version of the song, it was worked on a few times after that.
