    Default One, Two, Three Punch!

    How did Michael come out swinging in the business arena (with his catalogs) in 2007?

    Mijac Publishing
    -Sly Stone's resurgence with tour and greatest hit release
    -O Jay's touring and greatest hits release
    -the success of Kanye West's sample of the song GOLDDIGGER

    Sony/ATV
    what a long list ........but I put a few..

    -the hiring of Martin Bandier
    -signing of songwriter Diane Warren
    -controlling many of Cliff Richard's music with his 50th Anniv celebration
    - having artists voted for the best album and song of the year for the Grammy's, CMA's, VMA's and AMA's
    -owing the rights to the theme shows by Merv Griffin .. like Jeopardy
    -exclusive writers, James Morrison, Gary Barlow and Noel Gallagher who were honored at this year's BRIT Awards which took place on February 14 in London.

    ..at the end of each year.. there are always some kind of list made by the media.. so why can't we do our own list..in relations to MJ's business dealings in the industry...

    come on.. please add to the list??

    Sony/ATV, a joint venture between Sony Corp (6758.T: Quote, Profile, Research) and pop star Michael Jackson, expects more music catalogues to be put up for sale this year as people look to cash in profits in a slowing economy, said CEO Martin Bandier in a telephone interview.

    "To the extent that large acquisitions become available, Sony/ATV is in a particularly good place," he said. "It's hard to overpay for a great Picasso...if you're buying quality music that will last for generations. Great songs are a rarity."

    Sony/ATV is a traditional music publisher which makes money every time a piece of music is used on a variety of outlets including radio, movies, live performances, advertising as well as a share from recorded music sales.

    Michael P. Schulhof, president and CEO, Sony Corporation of America, said: "Michael Jackson is not only the most successful entertainer in history; he is also an astute businessman. Michael understands the importance of copyrights and the role they play in the introduction of new technologies. In joining us for this new venture, Michael recognizes Sony's leadership in developing and realizing new technologies that serve to expand the creative horizons of artists such as himself.

    He added, "To have Michael Jack son's song catalogues joined with ours will enable both Sony Music and Michael Jackson to aggressively build on a publishing portfolio filled with songs that are acknowledged as the cornerstones of popular music today."

    A bit off topic but since I know you will be watching this thread Rasta...

    Why is it that BMG music club is currently only carrying 3 of Michael's albums? They used to carry a lot more. What is the relationship between Sony, BMG, and Michael.

    They actually have at least 5 albums by Joe Jackson btw.
    "I like to take sounds and put them under the microscope and talk about how we want to manipulate the character of it."
    ---Michael Jackson

    Different though they are in detail, people are forever leaning on one another, trying to be whatever will not displease others, afraid of being themselves.

    Hey eternitys_child, I think it has to do with his agreement with Sony... and the dealings with his masters...I think Michael has a say in what albums can be used ..

    I don't think we realize it .. BUT.. Michael is the one that got Mottola fired.. and Michael .. carries a LOT more weight in Sony now (post Mottola).. than many realize..

    he holds the trumph card to the future of Sony/BMG earnings .. because the money is in the publishing.. and that's where Sony/BMG wants to go..


    that Ebony magazine issue.. revealed alot...to me .. if you are the artist that earned a record company $1bil profit off one album.. ummmm??

    Sony/BMG is about to 'throw down' some major cash in backing one Michael Jackson... this is my guess..


    just to repeat.. a continuatin of his legacy is about to be written.. please don't miss it....

    Well it is very annoying. I still have free cds due from them and suddenly they don't carry Michael's. Less than a year ago they still had at least most of his albums. I wonder if they will carry Thriller 25. I don't see that there yet either. I think they have Vince, Number Ones and I forget which other one and that's it.

    its OK.. it was a very dark period... very frustrating times as a fan...

    thing is .. of course the media never gave Michael any credit of deposing Mottolla.. but some artist on the label knew the deal and NAS wasn't afraid to say it..

    The Beatles' LOVE Cirque du Soliel Soundtrack Album!
    Jan 21, 2007



    The soundtrack to The Beatles LOVE, The Beatles-Cirque du Soleil Las Vegas musical, is in stores now. The album features 26 newly created "mashups" of material from the group's original master tapes, creating a musical "tapestry" mixing elements from different Beatles songs to form entirely new pieces.

    The Beatles' company, Apple, issued a description of the new album, explaining that, "... if you can imagine "Strawberry Fields Forever" beginning with John (Lennon's) original demo before going into an early take of the song and then climaxing in a musical collage including the piano solo from "In My Life" and the harpsichord pattern from "Piggies" or "Get Back," prefaced by the "A Hard Day's Night" opening guitar chord, the guitar and drum solos from "The End" and segued into "Glass Onion," you will begin to get the picture."

    The project was compiled and produced by the group's legendary producer George Martin and his son Giles Martin at London's Abbey Road Studios, where the group recorded nearly their entire catalogue between 1962 and 1970.

    The 26-track soundtrack to The Beatles LOVE includes the songs "Because," "Get Back," "Glass Onion," "I Am The Walrus," "Drive My Car/The Word/What You're Doing," "Blackbird/Yesterday," "Strawberry Fields Forever," "Within You Without You/Tomorrow Never Knows," "Octopus's Garden," "Lady Madonna," "While My Guitar Gently Weeps," "A Day In The Life," "Hey Jude," "All You Need Is Love," and others.

    The Las Vegas partnership between the Beatles and Cirque du Soleil was spearheaded by the late George Harrison and Cirque du Soleil founder Guy Laliberte, who became friends while following the Formula One racing circuit. It was Harrison who pitched the idea to Paul McCartney and went on to attend a Las Vegas Cirque performance with him in 2000, and Harrison's enthusiasm for the project convinced McCartney, Ringo Starr, and John Lennon's widow, Yoko Ono, to agree to the project.

    The album is released on Capitol in the U.S. and EMI in the rest of the world.

    Sony/ATV songs featured by legendary recording artists!
    Jan 24, 2007

    Sony/ATV Music songs are featured on currently charting albums and new releases by some of the music industry's legendary recording artists:


    Music For Lovers
    Dinah Washington's Music For Lovers contains the Pop/Standard classic, "I'm Gonna Laugh You Right Out Of My Life", written by Cy Coleman and Joseph McCarthy. The performance is "pure Dinah" from 1962! The song was introduced originally by Nat King Cole in 1956.

    Into White
    Carly Simon's refreshing vocals are complimented by soft acoustic instrumentation and a wonderfully understated arrangement on her performance of "Blackbird". This song was written by Lennon & McCartney and introduced by The Beatles in 1968 on The White Album.

    I Love You
    Diana Ross' sensitve performances and gentle productions highlight this collection of romantic love songs by Ms. Ross. Included is the classic Lennon & McCartney composition, "I Will", introduced by The Beatles in 1968 on The White Album.

    Ray Sings - Basie Swings
    Ray Charles and Count Basie are at their singing-swinging best in this amazing collection of big band covers of some of Ray Charles' most popular recordings.

    "Busted" written by renowned Country music songwriter, Harlan Howard, was a Country hit for Johnny Cash in 1963. Ray picked it up and reached #3 and #4 in Billboard's R&B and Pop Music charts that same year.

    "Crying Time" written by Country music's own Buck Owens and released by him as a "B" side in 1966. Ray covered it and reached #5 and #6 in Billboard's R&B and Pop Music charts and #1 for 3 weeks on the Adult Contemporary chart that same year.

    "I Can't Stop Loving You" written by the legendary Country music singer and songwriter, Don Gibson, is undoubtedly Ray Charles' biggest hit in his prestigious and longstanding career. It reached #1 for 5 weeks in Billboard's Pop chart, #1 for 3 weeks in the Adult Contemporary chart and #1 for 10 weeks in the R&B chart in 1962.

    "The Long and Winding Road", written by John Lennon & Paul McCartney, was a #1 hit for The Beatles in 1970. While Ray Charles never released it as a single he had great admiration for the Lennon & McCartney catalog and included many of their songs on other albums and singles.

    Duets: An American Classic

    Jimmy Buffett, Margaritaville's favorite son, features "Bama Breeze" written by Sony/ATV Music exclusive writer Josh Kear, and "Silver Wings" written and recorded in 1969 by the recipient of this year's BMI Icon award, Merle Haggard.

    Sony/ATV, a joint venture between Sony Corp (6758.T: Quote, Profile, Research) and pop star Michael Jackson, expects more music catalogues to be put up for sale this year as people look to cash in profits in a slowing economy, said CEO Martin Bandier in a telephone interview.

    "To the extent that large acquisitions become available, Sony/ATV is in a particularly good place," he said. "It's hard to overpay for a great Picasso...if you're buying quality music that will last for generations. Great songs are a rarity."

    Sony/ATV is a traditional music publisher which makes money every time a piece of music is used on a variety of outlets including radio, movies, live performances, advertising as well as a share from recorded music sales.

    Michael P. Schulhof, president and CEO, Sony Corporation of America, said: "Michael Jackson is not only the most successful entertainer in history; he is also an astute businessman. Michael understands the importance of copyrights and the role they play in the introduction of new technologies. In joining us for this new venture, Michael recognizes Sony's leadership in developing and realizing new technologies that serve to expand the creative horizons of artists such as himself.

    He added, "To have Michael Jack son's song catalogues joined with ours will enable both Sony Music and Michael Jackson to aggressively build on a publishing portfolio filled with songs that are acknowledged as the cornerstones of popular music today."

    Sony/ATV Music Publishing Inks Rotem
    September 03, 2007 - Publishing

    By Susan Butler, N.Y.

    Sony/ATV Music Publishing has signed a worldwide co-publishing deal with Jonathan "JR" Rotem, who produced and co-wrote Sean Kingston's No. 1 hit "Beautiful Girls" and Rihanna's No. 1 "SOS."

    Kingston is the first artist signed to Rotem's label, Beluga Heights, a venture with Epic Records. Charting songs co-written by Rotem, who lives in Los Angeles, also include 50 Cent's "Best Friend" featuring Olivia, Lil' Kim's "Whoa" and Rick Ross' "Push It." He has also penned songs for Natasha Bedingfield, Destiny's Child, Snoop Dogg and many others.

    "JR is a proven producer, writer, and someone with a great eye for talent," says Sony/ATV chairman/CEO Marty Bandier. "We are proud to count JR as the newest member of our family."

    "Beautiful Girls" includes portions of "Stand By Me," a copyright now controlled by Sony/ATV after its acquisition of the Leiber and Stoller catalog earlier this year.
    "I like to take sounds and put them under the microscope and talk about how we want to manipulate the character of it."
    ---Michael Jackson

    Different though they are in detail, people are forever leaning on one another, trying to be whatever will not displease others, afraid of being themselves.
