Fair enough, but I am interested to hear PSB as part of his album.

Please don´t be fooled by this 'remastered' illusion of today releases. What your ears hear as a 'remastering' use to be just an insane boost on the volume level of a track, what actually produces a real distortion and quality loss of the original music. The ear use to confuse higher volume with better quality, wich is a real lie...

Here I adjusted the volume to the new 'remastered' version on the Fancy CD to sound at the same audible volume level as the original 'unmastered' CD version (wich is released on that 'Golden-Dance-Classics' german West End girls CD single, the 5:00 minutes version of the Remix '86). What you can see here is what you can hear: playing at the same volume, the original has much more depth and volume range than the new 'peaks cropped-remastered' versión.

What is really fixed now is a glitch we can hear on the original CD, at around 3:16 on the track. On the new version it´s fixed and plays fine, so that is maybe the only reason to be really interested on having this release...
This is not my signature.

Did I hear correctly that Michael Jackson is releasing some new songs and one is called 'Do You Know Where your Children Are?'

It has the provided to Youtube by ZYX music in there, so it might have sailed onto their channel without their knowledge. A lot of stuff is on their channel twice because of weird stuff like this.

Fancy's performances of PSB hits are almost better than the real thing.
