A massive cache of Michael Jackson songs has hit iTunes — nearly 270 in total available in two packages. The Indispensable Collection compiles a handful of classic albums, a remix set, and Bad-circa full concert recording. That is available for $69.99, while The Ultimate Fan Extras Collection comes in at $79.99 and includes B-sides, demos, collaborations, other rarities, and many, many remixes (word to that "Remember the Time [New Jack Radio Mix]").

Specifically, Jacko heads after the Indispensable set will receive Off the Wall (1979),Thriller (1982), Bad (1987), Dangerous (1991), HIStory: Past, Present and Future, Book 1 (1995), remix set Blood on the Dance Floor/HIStory in the Mix (1997), and Invincible (2001) — plus Live at Wembly - July 16, 1988 — each of which has been remastered for the digital format and is available as a standalone title as well.

The track list for the Extras compilation can be found below. Further details for both releases can be found on iTunes. The roll-out coincides officially with the second MJ-powered Cirque du Soleil spectacle Michael Jackson ONE, which premiered June 29 in Las Vegas and has a permanent home at the Mandalay Bay hotel and casino. It lines up unofficially with the wrongful death lawsuit the Jackson estate has leveled at promoter AEG Live.
