Hits Magazine Tip of the Week

Questions are being raised about whether Michael Jackson's much-anticipated greatest-hits package with several new tracks will be in stores in time to capture holiday shopping dollars. Jackson is supposed to have already delivered the project to Epic Records, but frustrated insiders say he is not fully satisfied with every aspect of the package. There is speculation about whether Epic will release the project in the first quarter of 1995 or reschedule it for later in the year.
