    Default Would fans be interested in an official MJ collectors label?

    As some of you may know, there is a collectors label under Sony Music specifically for Elvis Presley releases aimed at the hardcore fan. It's called 'Follow That Dream' (named after an Elvis song). I believe they average around about 8 releases a year and have been active since 1999. Here is a list of all of their releases http://www.elvis.com/ftdreleases/all/default.aspx

    As I said, it is a special collectors label aimed at the hardcore Elvis fan, featuring material that may not be deemed "suitable" for mainstream releases on the main label. The releases generally consist of alternate studio takes and outtakes, rehearsals, live recordings, private recordings, special book projects and special editions of classic albums. I believe they usually only sell an average amount of around 5,000 copies per release. For this reason they usually retail for about $30 USD. The sales look low for a general mainstream release, but considering this is exclusively a collectors label focused on a specific artist that has been going strong for 13 years now, they have been very successful. Obviously so if Sony continue to keep the label alive.

    I'm wondering if this is something us MJ fans would be interested in for Michael? This way we could get all the untouched demos and live performances we want without stressing about every release appealing to the general public and selling a million copies. We could get a whole album of demo's like Michael's privately taped original songwriting session of "The Girl Is Mine" played at the 1993 court deposition without having to worry about it flopping on the charts and never seeing another MJ release again outside of greatest hits compilations. Or an album full of instrumental demo's that never had vocals put to them or very few vocals. Or multiple shows from the Bad tour, or any other tour on DVD. I think you see where I'm going with this.

    Is a label like this something you as an MJ fan would be willing to support and get behind, keeping in mind that the pricing would be slightly higher than that of a general mainstream release? And what other things could you think of that could be provided to us on such releases?

    Sounds like a good idea. While we'd love to hear demos that Michael left behind, probably the general public isn't that interested in such material. So it would be a good solution.

    Nah, I don't believe such dream lol You know early this year I was hoping for a Bad tour blu-ray .. and yeah here we go again. Don't think this would ever happen to be entirely honest.

    Maybe...

    If they could let us know what they exactly have, it could be interesting.

    That's right. If only they'd let us know what they really have.

    Yes! I am familiar with the Follow That Dream label and have been hoping for/dreaming about something like this for MJ for quite some time. I think there is a chance that it might happen in the future, but I think it will take some time - I suspect they will first release products which they think might appeal to the general public.

    But the possibilities are endless. The Elvis label has been going strong since 1999 with quarterly releases, and Elvis lived during a time when recording and preserving anything and everything was not the norm. MJ on the other hand was known to tape so much of what he did.

    I'd love for them to consider it. If it's good enough for Elvis, then it's good enough for Michael. I can pretty much guarantee that Michael left a lot more in his vault than Elvis. Most of the Elvis releases are studio outtakes and live concerts. Michael not only has those, but also taped songwriting sessions, demo's, filmed concerts, and who knows what else! As you said, the possibilities are endless.

    They say the estate is listening to the fans through various websites so maybe they will read this and at least think about it.
