DON'T STOP 'TIL YOU GET ENOUGH
"...several sources have estimated Jackson's posthumous sales to be in the neighborhood of $1 billion. It's a comeback that has restored Jackson to the powerful peak he enjoyed in the '80s, when albums like Off The Wall and Thriller revived the flagging music industry — and made consumers far less resistant to making the transition to the compact disc. Jackson's death means there will be a finite number of offerings, Pond says, but last year has shown it won't stop sales. "Right now, I think there are more re-packagings of Michael Jackson's music than there are original albums. For every album that's out there, there's at least one that puts the same old hits in a different order and puts a new cover on it," he says. And people continue to buy them — cheerfully."
