Michael Jackson - Bad - Leave Me Alone.wav ---------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------- This is the earlier Japanese release. It mainly has slightly different mixes of some songs (notably horns in Bad chorus, spoken intro in I Just Can't Stop Loving You, breathing in Smooth Criminal intro, not present in most later and western releases) and is overall 2dB quieter than western releases. It also show less signs of compression: waveforms look a bit more open (this is particularly obvious in Smooth Criminal), except for Dirty Diana. It has the same DR and RMS values as the other Japanese EPC4502902 release submitted here previously. They may be identical sound-wise. Presence of these early mixes on that release still has to be checked.
