HIStoric Facts


"HIStoric Facts"
Researched by Daz for MJJCommunity
Everyday create your HIStory
leaving your legacy behind.
These are the HIStoric Facts from
the Album HIStory
Past Present & Future

Today, we make HIStory researching
the HIStoric facts of the Album HIStory.

Though in my research I found the 'release' date of
June 20th 1995,
I will always remember that we as Europeans got
the Album on a date I simply can't forget.
Yeash, it was the ULTIMATE B-Day present.
So, NOW you all know I was born on this HIStoric day or simply
on June 16th as I'm just a humble fan though.

I do still cherish the Promo posters I managed to get from
the store as they had the message
"HIStory begins June 16th"

Anyway, during my HIStoric journey LOL, I noticed that
HIStory managed to get loads of Awards and so here
they all are to 'admire' once again.
