Lucas' current rep is so tied into this kooky revisionism policy of his own movies. Even Jacko never said "Hey! Turns out you were stupid to like that thing I made!"which is what this current shit amounts to.
Actually, MJ is guilty of revisionism as well. He has actually made quite a few changes to some of his albums well after they were originally released, it's just that they were never really noticed or documented nearly as heavily as GL's revisionism. The following are the most notable alterations to his albums.
MJ's Off the Wall album had 2 tracks replaced with remixes of the same tracks on later pressings of the album, the original mixes are only available on Vinyl.
The altered tracks are:
1. Rock with You, which was replaced with the 7' Remix of the song.
2. Get on the Floor, which was replaced with the Remix included as the B-Side of the RWY single.
Also, In the early 90's The cover to this album was changed from the original, presumably due to MJ's drastically different appearance at the time.
MJ's Bad album is the most drastically changed from it's original release, with nearly every track having been replaced by a different (and sometimes vastly inferior) mix on subsequent pressings.
The most notable alterations to this album include:
- "Bad" having a modified horn arrangement.
- "The Way You Make Me Feel" has the vocals turned up higher in the mix.
- "I Just Can't Stop Loving You" deletes the spoken intro at the beginning of the song.
- "Dirty Diana" is replaced with a shortened version of the song.
- "Smooth Criminal" has the heavy breathing in the intro removed and has an overall different sounding mix.
MJ's HIStory album, in addition to having some of the lyrics edited from "They Don't Care About Us" after being accused of antisemitism, also has the beginning intro to the track "HIStory" completely re-recorded.
I just thought I'd point out yet another similarity between MJ and GL.
