    i dont think they hate us but they aren't motivated by the fan community bc they can make alot of money targeting the public than just the fans and that rubs fans the wrong way

    Why they didn't include Maybe Tomorrow 50th in the predictions ?

    Edit: Oh right, it's only about the solo stuff. Got To Be There 50th then !

    The estate has nothing to do with Motown releases

    Keep in mind that the COVID-19 pandemic has put certain Michael Jackson Estate’s projects on hold.

    They clearly stated that it is their hope that the world will open up again soon, which will allow the Estate’s creators to finish their work.

    They also stated that their intention is to surprise the fans: as they said, one should not do too much, give the world a rest, and then surprise them with special projects.

    So, lack of announcements on the Estate’s part about upcoming projects and releases may be a good sign for the singer’s fans.

    Michael Jackson’s hardcore fans should also keep in mind that an official, separate collectors label (set up by the Estate) can actually compile and release stuff aimed at them.

    Stuff like box sets filled with various rarities/demos, DVDs of unseen concerts and/or concert rehearsals accompanied with multi-page, glossy booklets, video releases of studio recording sessions, etc) can mainly get a release by such a label which at the moment does not exist.

    Yeah recently I was thinking ... since apparently olds "fans" , new "fans" and mainstream public expectations seems not to be the same, maybe they could released something like Bob Dylan's "Bootlegs series" (which are not actual bootlegs but actually a competition to bootlegs market/leaks) ... If it's aimed at "fans", it would actually require much promotion.

    Then , they'd do whatever they want for the mainstream market, many will endup buying both anyay.

    Well, during pandemic... there actually WAS/IS a lot of time to work on material. Everybody is inside or close to home... working with a few people. What do archivist do? They work with select people (if not alone) doing archival work.. that`s just what we need for those videotapes and reels.

    Most of MJ`s audio work is already digitized and can be pulled from DAT tapes instant in a studio/at home to work on Dangerous 25/26/27th... It`s not as if producers/mixers are waiting for covid to disappear and THEN resume work. These are things that CAN be done during this time.

    Also.. people can't use their hard earned money for holidays so they SPEND it on fun things to do around the house... Just as I`d be willing to donate a few hundreds to get those LA`89 tapes.. The estate is clearly waiting for the LN to be an old memory, but c`mon: it`s always been like this. :-(

    They don't "hate" us. They just don't really care about us.

    I don't think they hate us but so far they've released 1 concert in 10 years. That is mind boggling to say the least.

    TII 10, compromised in 2019. HIStory 25 cancelled in 2020. I will be greatly surprised if nothing is planned for this year, Michael's 50th Anniversary. Remember that back in 2018 it was revealed that McClain was re working a batch of tracks alongside a high profile producer for a project the estate wanted to keep secret for a one off release. Also Branca stating The Estate have various projects in the works for this year including MJ the musical.. A film, who knows what else.
