On a sidenote about This Is It - they went thru many many many hours of video - nothing showed MJ was in a bad state - so video was not used as evidence...

The Childhood audio with live orchestra sounds amazing... - imagine if they have that on film...

Because the man wants to do it. He's done a better job of celebrating and educating people on Michael than anyone else in mind opinion and I'm sure it's not about the money. He's described it as a hobby.

A hobby? Then why the secrecy? A handful of fans have attended these, then come in here say it's amazing and they heard so many interesting new things but guess what we are not allowed to share anything! What did it sound like? Well I'm not allowed to speak about it but it was amazing! Do you honestly think he travels around the globe for free? I bet he asks a shitload of money. You could easily produce these seminars on YouTube, get MJ a shitload of good publicity and at the meantime all fans can be happy. If he wants to share these things so much with precious fans then share it.

Guess I'll have to use my imagination for how good childhood sounded.

Why the secrecy? Because he is showing and playing unreleased material. He isn't allowed to just post it on YouTube or else he gets in trouble with the estate.

Nope....you don't have to. Somebody recorded it and posted it on YouTube:

Thanks, I'll listen to it later. Long live the people that leak!

Trouble with the Estate? What he is doing now is also illegal to the Estate. You get to see it if you pay...a lot. I can barely afford bread so **** it I'm listening illegally whenever I can.
 
Unfounded?

Editing the vocals, splicing together multiple takes of whatever footage they had.. it was meticulously edited to look like MJ was rehearsing and crafting the show as if he was back in his prime. In reality he was being dragged to rehearsals, unable to perform some days and being described by those behind the film as a basket case.

The movie is a lie. Do you remember the 'This is NOT it' campaign?

I agree.
 
Since PS5 coming out it would be nice if they brought back the Moonwalker game. update it and stick with the story. they do need to rerelease the Moonwalker. it's been 30 something years since been released.

Enjoy! It's really beautiful even though the quality isn't the greatest.

A warning beforehand would have helped lol. I listened on headphones and I think my ears are shattered now.
So how does this work you reckon? This is one take of the song, I presume several more were done and then the best bits got edited together to form what in the end ended up on the album?

I'd love to hear stuff for shout or tabloid junkie now like this, perhaps I can make out what he is saying then :-D

As I remember Michael wanted the experience of singing it all the way through with the full orchestra there in front of him, like a kinda Frank Sinatra type deal. But I must admit, my memory is a little hazy.

Also the audio quality in the clip here does not do it justice, and watching Michael at work and his reactions make it really special.

Yes.
This song and Smile were both recorded live with an orchestra at the Hit Factory in New York on June 27th 1994.
I don't know how many takes Michael did for Childhood but I know that he did 6 takes for Smile with the orchestra and then did another 14 takes by himself because he wasn't fully satisfied with the first 6.
But in general that's how Michael recorded songs, it seems. He would sing them from top to bottom a couple of times and then decide which words or phrases sound best on which take.

Brad Sundberg posted a very interesting post on Facebook regarding this subject. I highly encourage you to read it.

Just because the article comes from a French magazine doesn't mean that the information in it is wrong. You can't translate a number, so Bruce actually said in that interview that they used an 80-piece orchestra, even if it isn't true.
It's Bruce's fault. Don't blame it on the translation.

Every time I quote Michael Prince as a source in my posts you say that his memory isn't great and that he doesn't remember dates well. How do you know that Bruce Swedien (who btw was 75 years old in 2009 when he wrote the book) has a better memory?

Bruce has been wrong before. Like when he said that the Bad sessions started on January 5th 1987 (when they actually started in August 1986) or when he said that he used the Shure Sm7 on all of Michael's recordings apart from Earth Song (Brad Sundberg has confirmed that they used other microphones as well).

Oh and btw...production moved from the Hit Factory to Record One and Larabee Studios in December 1994/January 1995. So, Bruce is once again wrong. They couldn't have recorded any song on March 29th 1995 at the Hit Factory because they had moved from there 2 months prior to that date.

And one last thing...HIStory was mastered on March 28th 1995 at Bernie Grundmann's. This has been confirmed by Mike Smallcombe.

Bruce Swedien has also provided pictures (from the recording sessions of these two songs) that show the orchestra, the musical equipment, string set-ups, position of the microphones, etc, taken from inside the Hit Factory studios in New York.

These pictures were taken on March 29th 1995, the day when they recorded these two songs.

Books and producers' memories are not always correct. I can confirm that both "Childhood" and "Smile" have been recorded and finished in 1994. I have SEVERAL official studio items that back it all up. Here's just one of them:

Just wondering what would be your preferred type of new release?

To flesh out the options:

Hi-Res album release: imagine Bad/Thriller/Dangerous getting a rerelease that actually sounded good (everything since 2001 has been garbage). I mean the original album, properly mastered, uncompressed, in 96kHz/24-bit, with 5.1 channel surround sound (or Dolby Atmos), on Blu-ray audio or SACD (a format created by Sony). MJ won Grammy awards for sound quality, this should be the focus, not extra tracks.

Faux Unplugged set: think The Stripped Mixes but spanning his entire career. A 90-minute performance, perhaps with newly recorded (but very basic) instrumental tracks. Rarer tracks, not the same hits all the time.

Full-on club experience: something like a Ministry Of Sound compilation, but just with MJ stuff. Exclusive remixes, all seemlessly mixed by a famous 80s/90s DJ without gaps, curated so that the whole thing flows and is a complete experience. Give the songs time to breathe, not jumping around every 30 seconds like that Cirque Immortal thing, or whatever they were doing in 1995.

Symphonic Masterpiece: taking MJ's vocal tracks, but making the impact more dramatic via the use of a full 100-piece orchestra with real strings, brass, percussion etc. I got a tribute CD with a solo violin and that was pretty good. I want something with a huge sound.

So those were my ideas. I'm sure it's only a matter of time before Sony thinks of one of these.

New music, above everything and anything else anyone could name. IÂ’m also hoping for an eventual 4K set of MJÂ’s short films and the long awaited unseen footage from the TII rehearsals.

Other than that, IÂ’m not very interested in anything else. No new concerts, no remixes, no documentaries (depending on the director).

Honestly I'd just like to see more posthumous releases, be it a single, EP, or album. But of those options I'd prefer a full-on club experience -- I think that the Invincible era onwards could really use a "rehydration" if you will, it's been sort of left behind in its dated-ness. Michael's magic is definitely there, but I think if someone could make a club mix of "Unbreakable" or "Threatened" that could be really do those songs justice. And even some post-Invincible stuff, the unfinished tracks like "Changes" or "Rocker", could become really good outro tracks to such a club experience in the right hands. Personally I would kill for a chance to hear something like "Changes" (Silk Sonic's HIStory Lesson).

Off The Wall outtakes and other pre-Thriller material might also work well for such a project.

4K short films, new album, TII Unseen Rehearsals, J5/Destiny/Victory/Bad/Dangerous Tours on Blu-Ray, Triumph/Victory/Bad/Dangerous Tour Rehearsals, Studio sessions from the BAD album (Footage was captured on 16/35mm as seen in BAD 25 Docu), Short films behind the scenes, On the road Tour documentaries, Super deluxe editions of each album containing demo's that are too incomplete to be featured on posthumous LPs.

Mostly stuff related to The Jacksons/J5. I would be interested in a compilation album with the extended & instrumental versions of songs (not club remixes) like You Can't Win, Billie Jean, & The Lady In My Life that were on 12" singles or other releases. Put Starlight Sun, the full Carousel, jingles for commercials (Dr. Pepper, Alpha-Bits, Pepsi, etc.), & the Victory fan club single on it too. Maybe re-release the E.T. Storybook.

New music is about all IÂ’m interested in. No more repackaged greatest hits please. Sure a HD concert would be great depending on what it is. Most of the concerts are similar so it would probably need to be Bad with live vocals. At this point itÂ’s been since 2014...

In lieu of the Estate not releasing anything (yet), this entire fandom has just been that meme of Plankton saying "DON'T LET THE FLAME DIE OUT".

But still, it would be weird if we didn't get anything out of his 50th anniversary.

Dangerous doc, since it's not 25 years anymore, I have to drop the 25, but I'd would love a dangerous documentary, directed by Spike Lee, he did a great job with Bad 25.
And a History doc, (not likely, but who knows)
Invincible doc (I saw some pics of Mike in the studio, studio footage pics, from a video)
CL1RP9QUAAABgmi.jpg


Dangerous documentary

"From the success of Bad tour, Michael is in the process of recording next album, Dangerous, from going from a compilations album, to a full album, you will get to see Michael Jackson, in the recording sessions of Dangerous." Starting from June 1989- Late 1991, you will see Mike recording, Mike filming the videos for dangerous, with never before seen footage.."

accompanied by Michael Jackson's new unreleased singles from Dangerous, "Men In Black", and "Black Or White" demo.

Dangerous directed by Spike Lee

featuring archive footage of MJ, and Bruce Swedien. (2021)

They should do some stuff like this, (if they still have the tapes and footage)

I saw a tape on Entertainment Tonight, which keeps the faith that I believe they still have the tapes, here it is!:

None. I'd only buy a new HQ/HD concert release.
Here's the question then. Why are so many people interested in HD versions of the videos, but not as many people are interested in HD versions of the actual audio?

Thriller on SACD is out of print and virtually unknown. Virtually nobody is asking for Dangerous/Bad/History on SACD or BD.

Everybody else is getting it (Beatles, Bowie, Clapton, Dylan, Eagles, Floyd, GNR, REM, Toto). Why not MJ? Even Sheryl Crow has beaten MJ to it!

I wonder that too, there are MJ folks who are into audio, but proportionally, not so many.

Another problem for me is that if they release something now it's going to "remastered", so unless it uses a true "audiophile" mastering, I'm not sure if I'm interested.

In example, I heard the early Thriller SACD from Japan ... the sound is literally orgasmic (and I don't think it has to do with the SACD performances because I converted the file to FLAC which can't reach SACD specs, it's the mix/mastering that is perfect). But I've heard that later Thriller SACDs actually use the 2001/2008 mastering ... which is not going in a good direction.

I also got Dylan's "Blood On The Tracks" MoFi SACD, I must say yes it's good but I wasn't has blown away by this one than by Thriller SACD (or also Thriller master reel rip is differernt but as orgasmic as the SACD)

Because we have good mixes of the songs. Most people can appreciate these. However, the short films do not hold up the same and are also easier to notice the difference in quality.

Yeah, but people like to own stuff. Plus those aren't in multichannel. I think it's a shame: after all, MJ was a pioneer in this area (Black Or White was the world's first music video in Dolby Surround). Imagine the choir in Keep The Faith in 5.1. Or the news clips in HIStory all coming from different directions. Or the Jam sound effects coming from above. There are endless possibilities.

I've heard that later Thriller SACDs actually use the 2001/2008 mastering ... which is not going in a good direction.
I don't think that's right. There are no "later Thriller SACDs". They made one small batch in 1999 and then stopped making them. It's out of print, that's why you can't get it...

But yeah, agreed. I don't buy anything based on those crappy 2001/2008 masterings. Shudder.

Hmm. The picture quality for something like Billie Jean isn't actually that good. You can use as many pixels as you like and it still won't improve the picture quality. Putting a 4K logo on the box is just an exercise in wasting storage space.

SACD never caught on with the general public, neither has DVD audio or Blu Ray audio. Most people did not buy Quadraphonic & half speed masters versions of albums in the 1970s/1980s. Those audiophile formats usually cost more anyway and you had to have special equipment to play it on. You didn't need special stereos to play Quadraphonic/half speed, but you wouldn't get the effect with any stereo. I don't think most people care about that kind of thing, especially the Napster/MP3 generation. Today streaming is more popular than buying records/tapes/CDs. The average current artist is lucky to go gold from physical sales, other than a few exceptions like Taylor Swift. For most people it's like "why buy a CD when entire albums are on Youtube for free". :laughingv6: You don't even have to buy a download.

If you are talking about trying to upscale the Vision source as 4k then you are correct. However if they actually remastered it from the film source it would look fantastic. I think Billie Jean was only filmed on 16mm so the best quality would be 1080p. If they can do it for Thriller then they could/should do it for Billie Jean, Beat it, etc.

Billie Jean ripped from 16/32mm film is a more obvious and rewarding release than a Blu Ray audio of the single.

They're on tape as well. Beat it I think was the 1st to be shot on 35mm.... might have been can you feel it too though. I'm not sure but so far as solo yeah beat it. The previous ones like Blame it on the boogie- rock with you are on tape

First of all, a Blu-ray collection of concerts from his solo tours, filmed in 35mm + multitrack would be nice. (Hopefully a better 5.1 mix than Wembley though.) The thing about Hi-Res releases is that only a very small percentage of people are actually gonna buy those, since a) most of the tracks are already available in 96khz/24bit on several websites, including this forum. b) be honest. How many people you know are actual audiophiles? c) it would just be another rerelease of the same tracks we already know and love. Nothing new for the mainstream pop culture. And if the estate gets small sales, they're gonna release even less new stuff than they do already. Things like TDCAU 2020 directed by Spike Lee are a nice and welcome addition, though this shouldn't be a replacement for HIStory 25. Now, for the Jacksons' tours, the one I would most like a release for is the Goin' Places tour. Almost no information about it can be found nowadays and a potential live version of Goin' Places alone is enough for me. I would be totally happy with a master tape and soundboard audio release of that.

I'd love them to release an EP something like MJ's work tape for a song like Liberian Girl or Smooth Criminal alongside the demo, along with the song itself. Maybe release an interview with someone like John Barnes or Matt Forger talking about the conception of the track. Just something for us fans you know
The work tape for Beat It was a highlight of the This Is It soundtrack for me personally

I realise that. Maybe it's because you couldn't get Bad and Dangerous!

They only cost more because of scaling. If more people buy it the price comes down. Anyway, lots of people bought (and are still buying) stuff like the Number Ones DVD. Could have had 5.1 mixes on that.

You didn't need special stereos to play Quadraphonic/half speed, but you wouldn't get the effect with any stereo
That's the beauty of modern technology. Graceful degradation. Multiple soundtracks are available on the same disc. If somebody doesn't have Atmos they just listen in stereo. It's fine.

Historically, labels have used big-name artists to sell new technology. If they don't use MJ to push this stuff out then you're letting down the whole music industry down.

I don't think most people care about that kind of thing, especially the Napster/MP3 generation. Today streaming is more popular than buying records/tapes/CDs
Exactly. If you don't offer the customer anything that's superior to their existing version (or YouTube) then why would you expect them to buy anything? If Sony expect the MJ industry to continue, they're actually gonna have to release something that's not just another greatest hits compilation.

And whatever they do release, quality matters

The average current artist is lucky to go gold from physical sales,
Correction: the vast majority of artists never sell enough records to cover their costs. Like seriously, 80% of artists are a commercial failure. And that's just the ones that get signed. 99% of artists never set foot in a recording studio, never mind about selling their first copy.

If you are talking about trying to upscale the Vision source as 4k then you are correct. However if they actually remastered it from the film source it would look fantastic. I think Billie Jean was only filmed on 16mm so the best quality would be 1080p. If they can do it for Thriller then they could/should do it for Billie Jean, Beat it, etc.
DVD is already beyond the source material. BJ looked bad on the HIStory DVD. It looked bad on the Visionary DVD. Etc.

You could upscale them to 16K or 256K, but it won't make them look any better. You're just increasing the pixel count.

A fan collection with demoes - alternate vocals - studio footage - behind the scenes from the iconic musicvideos etc. etc.

I know this is directed at a small fan circle - but it would be great.

Then they could also release something for the general public to earn money. - new album, Cirque du solei, Broadway etc.

But it would be nice with something directed to the fans also. (and I think that could be done without loosing money, but I know they would not earn a lot from such a project)

ItÂ’s getting difficult to come up with ideas for a release. The obvious answer for most of us is unreleased music. All indications in resent years or should I say since 2014 is the estate are not interested in releasing anything. LN or the pandemic aside WTF are we waiting for? Fact is people have made up their mind on MJ years ago release something already and not some half ass documentary like Off the wall and a piece of chalk.

to me, the most important thing is 4K scans from all videoclips, then a concert release, MJ is the only 20th century big artist with crappy resolution videos on dvd and online streamings
 
I would like to see better t-shirts and hoodies with better designs, the crap they came out with recently is garbage I've seen fans come out with better designs.
I also would like if John Branca wasn't working with someone to do a biopic, the last thing we need is a Michael Jackson biopic. What we need is a 5 to 10 part docuseries of Michael's life.

IÂ’d like the website to get a facelift. IÂ’m not a Prince fan, but I love how creative and unique his website is. The current MJ site just feels so haphazard.

The website and e-commerce store both suck hard. There should be permanent MJ merch on there that you actually want to buy. Not the first few paragraphs of his Wikipedia pasted onto a hoodie.
