    Default Miscellaneous Michael J. Jackson - MMJJ

    Sometimes members want to share something relating to Michael and perhaps have a brief discussion about it with other MJ fans, but they don't know where to place their item, or their thoughts. They might even be unsure about whether they should start a new thread for their contribution, or not.

    Sometimes there's really no need for a whole new thread......especially for items that have been around in the fan community for a long time, BUT they still could be "new" to some people. Anything and everything related to Michael is always worthwhile for someone.

    So that we don't have a whole bunch of small threads with only one or two posts in them.....where items and interactions become lost in the back-blocks of the forum, let's have a MISCELLANEOUS thread like this one.

    Whenever you want to share something, but are undecided about where it should go, or if it deserves a new thread, just place it here.

    Default Bad Tour Footage Used in AMA Achievement Award Compilation? (1989)



    Was that concert footage (starts at 6:03) from the LA dates in 1989? Or was it from somewhere else?

    The whole footage is a mixture of different venues, I think, but parts of it at the beginning, definitely look like the January 1989 concerts in LA, judging by the particular jacket Michael is wearing. I think there is some Wembley 1988 footage in there, as well.

    Here's some wonderful TV station footage, from a Bad Tour concert in Rome in 1988. What's interesting about this footage is that it's shot from the back, or side of the stage and also includes some back stage entries and exits. Sigh....I miss the heady days of the eighties.

    Ah, gotcha. Thanks for clarifying that. The first shots of him singing Bad definitely look like they're from LA, as he looks a bit thinner and more like he would by the 90s.

    This looks like it was shot on an i-phone. The left and right margins are similar to what you see on the news when they show videos shot by people, not camera crews.

    Odd. Or maybe somebody shot film of a film.

    Well, it could have been filmed using a phone, from the TV footage.....from a tape or recording of it?? It's quite good quality, though, if it is a film of a film. I confess I didn't notice that. I was mesmerised by the back view of Michael. Hehehe.

    Default Was there any album "Resurrection", MJ cancelled?

    I was checking the unreleased song list on Wikipedia, https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/List_o...ichael_Jackson
    and there is a song name "Resurrection".
    This song has a description:


    • Working title for cancelled 2003 album

    • Early speculation suggests that it would have been a double album, similar to "HIStory"

    • Another report suggested the album would also feature remixes from "Invincible"

    • Cancelled due to increased speculation around Jackson and "Number Ones" was released instead

    • Several tracks from the album were instead put on the final disc of "The Ultimate Collection"


    Also, in lost time 2006 there was a post which still exists: http://prince.org/msg/8/191540?pr this contains the tracklist which was rumoured. But now we are kind of sure that some of these songs really exists.
    Further, Can't Get Your Weight Off of Me's description says "Planned for the cancelled album "Resurrection".
    so was there any album Resurrection or is it just a rumour?

    Keep in mind that Wikipedia is not an especially reliable source of information, considering that it can be edited, changed, updated, etc. by anyone, at will.

    I'm unclear, from your post, whether "Resurrection" is rumoured to be a song, or an album, or both?? Personally, I have never heard of it, at all, but of course, anything is possible.

    My gut feeling is that, given Michael's usual release timeline for albums - every four/five years - it's unlikely that he had plans to release another album only two years after "Invincible"; especially when "Invincible" ended up being such a battle ground for him and such a painful/tough process, both in terms of actually getting it done and getting it promoted. He may have considered doing a companion to "Invincible" with some remixes plus extra new songs, in much the same way as BOTDF was a companion to HIStory. The fresh round of allegations and the raid on Neverland, etc. would definitely have put an end to any such ideas, considering the emotional state that Michael must have been in, at that time.

    There was never any album or song (or both) called ‘Resurrection’.

    Some fans who were disappointed by the whole ‘Invincible’ situation (low sales, lack of inadequate promotion, etc) came up at that time with that fake project ‘Resurrection’ & they additionally started to spread those false rumors.

    In fact, there were never any plans at all for a new studio album at that time. MJ decided to extricate himself from Sony by delivering the box set ‘The Ultimate Collection’ in 2004.
