You’ve gotta love Michael Jackson’s Off the Wall album. IMO this is the best disco album of the 70s and was it was ‘kreated’ using funk, boogie, disco-pop, soft rock, jazz and pop elements. Jackson’s vocal performance on the record is great and relaxed. Off the Wall seen Jackson and Quincy Jones working for the first time and they bond a friendship that will become essential for the next Jackson album, Thriller.
The album was a big commercial success selling more than 20 million copies worldwide, to date. Also in 2008, Off the Wall was inducted into the Grammy Hall of Fame.
