    "Speechless" - March 2000 at Neverland Ranch

    Are you sure about that? There was no professionel studio at Neverland.

    Brad Buxer and Michael Prince recorded it via a portable recording setup.

    Michael wasn't above recording vocals in peculiar settings. Sometimes he couldn't make it to a professional studio in the allotted time; sometimes he just wanted to work from home. For example, the GRAMMYs intro to "The Way You Make Me Feel" was recorded in a hotel room, as were "Best of Joy" and "I Am a Loser"; "Days in Gloucestershire" was recorded in a bungalow on the front lawn of the Neverland mansion; and I believe the demo to "Billie Jean" was partially recorded in a closet!

    Thanks AlwaysThere, more great insightful info

    I've wanted to know dates of some songs for ages.
    I'm jealous of Beatles fans for that, they know what date songs were made, what time and how many sugars Ringo had in his coffee that day

    I still think it's interesting/cool that Best Of Joy was recorded IN the Bel-Air hotel.. Not in a studio, not in some fancy high tech location.. but the BATHROOM haha! I love it.

    That date must be the day when new elements/overdubs were recorded. DDs first demo recording dates to early 1983. Initial recording under Q's supervision began in August 1986.

    Actually most of the Hayvenhurst songs (that were fully complete before they were brought up to Quincy), Quincy insisted on rerecording them. Another Part Of Me was the only song that Michael preferred in it's previous state that they didn't pick the rerecorded version for the album.

    I really hope they release the early version of Another Part Of Me in the near future. That bass is just so smelly!

    I think it's so interesting to see how they spaced out these recording sessions.

    True! Michael started working with the B-Team in 1985 at the Hayvenhurst Studio.This is where 'Al Capone', 'Price Of Fame', 'Free' (and pretty much all the other demos included on Bad 25) were recorded.
    Michael also contacted Roger Troutman from the band Zapp in 1985. I found a handwritten note on Julien's Auctions from MJ to a person named 'Candy' on which Michael wrote to find 'the guy who played guitar on the record ''Dance Floor'' from the band Zapp'.It was dated March 5th 1985.
    Troutman later worked with Michael on 'Al Capone'.

    Another interesting thing I found is the track sheet of the song 'Dangerous' (yes, the same track sheet that Michael talks about in his 1994 deposition).It was posted a while back on Brad Sundberg's Facebook account.
    Lead and background vocals for 'Dangerous' were recorded on February 1st 1991.
