Smooth Criminal

One of the best Michael Jackson songs. I wondered what would have happened if Shep Pettibone had been allowed to remix it back in 1988. This was the experiment. It was not done with multitrack but with the acappella version instead. Nothing that wasn’t available in 1988 was included in this mix.
