    According to someone who was at a seminar a demo of the song was played and the bridge vocals were present.

    The bridge vocals are even present at very low volume (audible with ear/headphones) on the so called DAT-leak. With this new info Michael from Sherwood I believe the "old" bridge vocals were just a leftover of guide vocals.

    That's what I originally thought, but Michael never (to my knowledge) visited Record One at any point post-2005. I think Sherwood is saying that his only time encountering Michael in person was in 1990, when "For All Time" was originally recorded.

    I believe it was Mike Smallcombe who said that there was supposed to be a quick studio session with Steve Porcaro in late 2007 to do some additional vocal work on the song, but Michael never showed.

    It's true that the DAT demo and the demo played at Sundberg's seminars feature Michael singing the bridge, but it's an incomplete guide vocal.
    The bridge included in the officially released song was recorded in 2007 with Eddie Cascio... in the "legendary" basement studio! For All Time is the last song Michael finished in his life. How poignant.

    By the way, the version included in The Ultimate Fan Extras Collection available on iTunes is mastered differently than Thriller 25. Make sure to check it out. Another Day sounds better too!

    It is one of my all time favourites too.

    Interstingly, I might prefer the DAT version. Yes, it sounds a bit unfinished, but due to it being less audible and "airy" it gives the song an even more "floating", breezy, intangible feeling.

    Thanks for the tips. These different masterings are making me mad. :/

    But there's no stars to see
