Original Master Proof Lacquers
of Michael Jackson's "Thriller"

Album Sides "A" & "B"

Bruce Swedien has personally autographed the front of the album sleeve by writing "A real Thriller", his signature and "August 2004" in a black sharpie marker. Also written towards the top of the sleeve in blue is "Epic Records" and "Nov 10, 1982".

These two lacquers have only been played once by Bruce for approval only, and on the cover is a note specific to the playing of these lacquers which says “Cut #3 has 15kz to 2nd verse”. The notation of “kz” refers to kilohertz.

They are in excellent condition and look like the day they were cut by Bernie Grundman (mastering engineer) in Hollywood, California. Bernie was concerned about the quality of vinyl used, and made a decision to have each side of the album pressed on a separate lacquer. Because of this distinction, these lacquers are even more valuable, as common practice for any mastering engineer was to have the A and B sides pressed onto one lacquer, not two.

Est. Value: $2000
