You can see in the picture a controversial USA Cassingles release of Bad and The Way You Make me feel. Released for promotional use only (as stated from a sticker in the back of the box) the 2 cassettes singles are housed in a special hard cover long box.
In the USA, first pressings of cds were usually issued commercialy in a special "album sleeve" long box. Many Michael Jackson albums such as Off The Wall, Thriller, Bad and Dangerous were issued in this particular format, and more recently "The Essential" long box appeared in some American shops.
These particular boxes were produced by record companies because they wanted to give to the buyers an LP like product, as in, big as possible. They wanted to give the customer the feeling of buying something more than an LP.
Only a few of these singles EPIC-CBS were distributed to the radio stations in this special "long box". There may have been other singles other than Bad and The Way You Make Me Feel released in this format but as of yet we haven't come across them.
