Absolutly Amazing!
12 January 2003 | by mj_zakSee all my reviews

History-on film volume II was given to me as a gift when I was about 11 years old. At the time Michael Jackson had disappeared from the public since the birth of his 2 children.

This video was so cool and is unforgettable. Tracing back to the day's when Mj first became a mega star after his performance of Billie Jean on the Mowtown special to his amazing short films from the History album. You will be absolutly mezmorised by every music video especially (Well im my opinion) the 1995 MTV awards performance. This is an absolute must have for any MJ fans. 10/10
