Rare Michael Jackson Commercial 12 Inch Singles

Smile

Michael Jackson "Smile" 5 Track Commercial 12" Single (Holland) This mega-rare withdrawn Dutch 12” single is without a doubt the most sought after 12” single among Michael Jackson collectors. Housed in the fantastic “Charlie Chaplin” picture sleeve, this five track commercial release (#6651306) also features remixes of “Is It Scary” and “Off The Wall”. Although there were a handful of CD releases of “Smile”, this appears to be the only official vinyl release. Some copies of these records reached Dutch retail stores but after a couple of days were withdrawn and destroyed by Sony, making legit originals very rare, and currently valued at around $1800. But BEWARE as this is easily the most bootlegged Michael Jackson record in the world, with multiple fake copies circulating on Ebay at any given time.
