    Live vocals underneath the playback from the HIStory Tour

    Well, I'm glad that they post snippets because at least we know this stuff is out there. It means it will potentially leak at some point, while the stuff that remains only in the Estate vault might never see the light of day.

    Live vocals underneath the playback from the HIStory Tour

    Yes, that's the reason. If you share what you have, you lose all possibility of trading it for more rare music later on. Some of those people have spent thousands of dollars acquiring their unreleased material, they don't want to lose their investment.

    Live vocals underneath the playback from the HIStory Tour

    So somebody out there has got the mic feed for some of those shows?

    Live vocals underneath the playback from the HIStory Tour

    It’s unlikely the mic feed vocals would be useable for a commercial release, as they were never meant to be heard and are probably off-key and half-assed, but they would still be more interesting than lip-synching.

    What you think about the 30th Anniversary concerts?

    His hair at that event was a wig, so obviously they could have had him wear a wig with long hair. The short hair was meant to present a « new look » MJ for American audiences. It’s also the reason the usual MJ grunts, yelps and hee-hees are much more subdued on Invincible than on previous...

    What you think about the 30th Anniversary concerts?

    It was the compromise they had come to because MJ refused to tour to support the Invincible album.

    What you think about the 30th Anniversary concerts?

    It was easier to just get some engineer to pitch down the vocals from the CD than to re-record entire songs.

    What you think about the 30th Anniversary concerts?

    It's not just Jermaine who's talked about this, but also Frank Cascio, who was there, as well as at least one of MJ's other collaborators (I forget whom). I remember journalists mentioning how out of it MJ looked on the red carpet. We also have a first-hand and incontrovertible account, from...

    What you think about the 30th Anniversary concerts?

    He may have had laryngitis during some of the shows on some of the tours, but he obviously didn't have laryngitis for the whole year the HIStory tour lasted. It was just a PR excuse. As for him singing under the playback, it's obviously much less of a hassle/a risk to sing when you know the...

    What you think about the 30th Anniversary concerts?

    Fans need to stop with the laryngitis excuse. Did he have laryngitis during the entirety of the HIStory tour? And also on the day he did every one of his later TV appearances? Why wasn't his speaking voice affected? And why could he still do the "oows" and "aoohs" during the ad-libs? There's...

    What you think about the 30th Anniversary concerts?

    It's well-established from numerous sources -- including MJ himself ("I don't like to tour, I go through hell touring") that MJ didn't want to tour to support the albums. And since it was obviously much easier to lip-synch, and since the fans and the media let him get away with it, that's what...

    What you think about the 30th Anniversary concerts?

    Not on the television special; maybe it was when he did it on stage, but in that case the live singing was replaced with the studio track for the TV special.

    What you think about the 30th Anniversary concerts?

    It's possible, as I never watched the fan-made recordings of the shows, only the television special. Do you remember what songs from his solo set he did sing live?

    What you think about the 30th Anniversary concerts?

    Or more generally on his face, I don't know. But obviously something went wrong.

    What you think about the 30th Anniversary concerts?

    The entire show is lip-synched, excluding the Jacksons reunion part, and even that is heavily edited and studio-enhanced.

    What you think about the 30th Anniversary concerts?

    He did that because, around 2001, he had some procedure done on his face that paralyzed his lips muscles for a while. If you watch him on the YRMW video, at the New York Invincible signing event or at the 30th anniversary special, he hides his mouth every time he smiles or laughs, because his...

    EVERYTHING KNOWN ABOUT OFF THE WALL AND THRILLER OUTTAKES (1975-1983)

    But the version on Siedah's album is credited to Rod Temperton and Siedah herself (for the news lyrics, I guess?).

    EVERYTHING KNOWN ABOUT OFF THE WALL AND THRILLER OUTTAKES (1975-1983)

    Wow I didn't know a second version of She's Trouble had leaked. This would be perfect for Thriller 40.

    EVERYTHING KNOWN ABOUT OFF THE WALL AND THRILLER OUTTAKES (1975-1983)

    Got the Hots wasn't written by MJ but by Rod Temperton, I think?

    New MJ content (Possibility)

    You're reaching with some of those objections. Besides, by the 2000's, MJ's perfectionism was not what it once was, as evidenced by the laziness and half-bakedness evident throughout Invincible. Near the end, what MJ wanted more than perfectionnism was revenue with the least amount of work...
