This article just came from Rolling Stone:

https://www.rollingstone.com/music/music-news/jacksons-reissues-1120068/

The Jacksons (1976), Goin' Places, and Destiny are going to be re-released (presumably on streaming platforms at least for now) on February 12th. They will each contain a handful of bonus tracks, which are all alternative mixes of pre-existing songs (i.e. the 7" version of Shake Your Body).

Unfortunately, no unreleased material

Also, on March 25th the Jacksons Live album from 1981 will be re-issued on vinyl, which is neat.

I'm happy the Live album is getting a rerelease on vinyl. I wonder when Destiny and Triumph will be rereleased on vinyl after The Jacksons and Goin Places were rereleased on vinyl 3 years ago.

At least there's something I never heard of : That's What You Het (For Being Polite) 12" mix... Besides that...nothing more

I have question.. I'm not familiar with digital releases as I always buy physical CD's. Will I be able somehow to download lossless tracks or it will be only streaming?

^ I think they're streaming only, at least for now.

Also, on Spotify, they've already released one of the new alternative mixes from each album as a teaser. Enjoy Yourself (12" mix), Find me a Girl (7" Mix) and the John Luongo Disco mix of Shake Your Body are available to hear. Here's the link for the latter:

In my opinion, if the sales for the Live vinyl re-issue are strong enough, the estate might consider releasing a concert DVD/Bluray down the line. Personally, I'm holpe they do a Victory album re-release with the unreleased Freddie Mercury demos plus a DVD of a Victory Tour concert.

You should be able to get them from stores which offer lossless downloads, e.g. HDtracks





edit:


so far, only French Qobuz store has listed the upcomming expanded releases.

They'll be only in 24/44.1 while the previous non expanded version are in 24/96 quality.

Bummer! I thought it would be an extended thing... this is even shorter than a radio edit!

I think it was used as an appetizer in order to stimulate the LP sales. Beside of that, the b-side of the Destiny 12" was probably used to its maximum extend (the other track is the 7 minutes lasting John Luango mix of BOTB).

I just listened to the new expanded edition of Destiny. Kinda like the mix by Reverend P.... only the beginning is a bit too repetitive., I think.

'Destiny' is such a great album!

Yes it is! I always call it Michael's first solo album... not to diminish his brothers, absolutely not, but IT IS a Michael Jackson album. It's him singing all lead vocals, except for Bless His Soul (which is kind of a duet with Michael and Jackie). He has songwriting credits on all the songs, except for Blame It On The Boogie. And most of all: this is Michael performing without Quincy, Teddy, Bill or Rodney, this is Michael sounding great without the recording wizardry of Bruce Swedien, this is... mainly him. And his brothers of course, but I think I am not the only one to believe Michael had the upper hand when working with his brothers...

That's what makes Destiny so interesting to me. It's sort of unfiltered MJ. This is what he wanted to record, in 1978. I like it a lot.

I rarely hear the brothers on any of those songs. I bet they aren't on alot of songs. Mjs bkgv are apparent
