    Looks good, I've always wanted a book like this. Seems a bit expensive but I'm sure there's a reasonable explanation.

    Thanks for posting mate

    Richard Lecocq (Author)
    Richard Lecocq is the author of KING, a retrospective of Michael Jackson's solo career, and has run the website MJdatabank.com since 2001. He has collaborated with Universal on Michael Jackson projects, and is the editor of JAM, a biannual Michael Jackson publication.
    MJdatabank rings a bell. Seems legit though. Can't wait to see if it's any good.

    Whoa - this book looks really good! I've always wanted a book of this sort that explains the songs (The Beatles already have one..and The Rolling Stones) so this looks good. I bet it's really substantial too - a 'coffee table' book! Thanks for posting!

    The book is already looking interesting but you know what would make it even more great? If they also included the recording dates. Either way, here's hoping the book will be an interesting read!

    This topic in a book is pretty epic.. how the hell would one author gather true information for "every track" though.. I wonder the authenticity

    "Every track" refers to the songs that are known. Don't expect info on any existing song.

    Vogel barely skimmed the surface of each song. His book was pretty much a collection of information you could readily find online without anything of substance (not to mention being riddled with errors).

    Richard LeCocq is a man who has more than a few resources. Very excited for this!

    Looks interesting ... but most of the books don't have right info about when MJ did the songs !!
