Michael Jackson's 6th studio album Thriller was released on November 30, 1982. It produced seven top 10 singles, ("The Girl Is Mine", "Billie Jean", "Beat It", "Wanna Be Startin' Somethin", "Human Nature", "P.Y.T. (Pretty Young Thing)", and "Thriller") breaking the record for most top 10 singles from a single album. Thriller went on to win a record-breaking 8 Grammys, and remains one the best selling albums of all time.

The album's success can't be measured by sales alone. As Michael Jackson moonwalked his way into music history, Thriller set a new benchmark for blockbusters that changed how the music business promoted and marketed superstar releases. It also changed MTV, breaking down the cable network's racial barriers and raising the bar for video quality.

From the beginning, Epic intended to live up to its name. The label made Thriller the first major release to debut worldwide simultaneously, the first album to be worked for close to two years instead of the usual six or eight months and the first album to spin off seven singles to radio - more than double the normal number. During a 15-month period, Epic released seven of the nine tracks from "Thriller" as singles, and they all landed in the top 10.

Heavyweight vinyl produced by Sony Legacy for Epic Records in 2015. Gatefold sleeve. Faithfully replicated artwork. Made in Europe.
