    actually they are all official edits either released at the time the singlle was out or created especialy for some compilations (like Thriller 2003 edit and Ben Live 2003 edit for Number Ones)

    I think WBSS 7 edit is the worst lol.

    Actually this is the FIRST time the single version of WBSS has been released on CD. The Essential Collection and the Thriller single set included a very poorly edited album version. The LP Edit of They Don't Care About Us is nothing new, either. It's just a poor edit and I don't know why they included it. The Thriller Edit isn't actually a "2003" edit either. It's one of the US single versions that when released on promotional radio vinyl was simply called "Thriller w/Rap."

    So, there was no re-editing done on this set. The only one I can complain about is Off The Wall on the Japanese collection. It's just the album version faded early (like on the Essential Collection) instead of the true single remix.

    nope that was fake!

    it was edited down from the album version and made to time out and sound like the 45 - except they got it wrong, there is a split second where it is clearly incorrect. the same bogus edit appeared on The Essential Collection in 2005.

    The TDCAU version on this album is indeed terrible. Why they hasn't simply used the sencored version instead of making this amateurish re-edit of the song is beyond my imagination. I had to rewind and listen to it two times before I actally belived what I was hearing. It's out of sync, and sounds like a 14-year old could have done better.
