Description:

This Brazilian test pressing picture disk (#144775) was pressed in very small quantities in advance of the album’s release, but it was scrapped when Sony learned that Dangerous was going to be a double album set. The story goes that only 26 test pressings were pressed and distributed to Sony executives. However, the commercial release was scrapped because doing a “double picture disk” release would further delay the release of the album, so Sony requested all 26 copies to be destroyed. However, an unknown quantity were never returned (fanzine “Back & White” #3 suggested that there were only 12 still in existence worldwide). Since the disc was pressed prior to the completion of the album, Sony used Richard Clayderman piano tracks taken from his Christmas album for the music. The front and back artwork is the same. Unlike the USA “display only” disk, this one has a clear rim and matrix numbers of XSLP-970 & XSLP-971. Because of the rarity of this item, it is valued at more than $1500 in excellent condition.

One of the ultimate items to own. I'm wondering how many have this one...
