This month’s MJ Studies Today column looks at the making of Michael Jackson’s album “Blood on the Dance Floor” as explored in the recently released book by Brice Najar, titled “Book on the Dance Floor: Let’s Make HIStory in the Mix”. The focus here is on some of the album’s newly recorded and previously unreleased songs that are too often neglected by music critics when discussing Jackson’s catalogue. Najar’s meetings and interviews with some key personnel involved in these recordings afford greater appreciation of these unique tracks, more of which will be addressed in a Part 2 article at a later date.
