Get It Together (Red Vinyl - Limited Edition) [re-issue Album]
Released: 20-09-2019

After the bronze vinyl reissue of the album 'Skywriter' of June, the Culture Factory will propose a reissue of the 'Get It Together' in red vinyl on September 20, 2019.

It's a limited edition album (limited to 1000 pressings).

'Get It Together' was for the first time released on September 12th, 1973 in the USA and in the United Kingdom the album was released during November 1973 by Tamla Motown.

Now 15-years-old, his voice began to deepen, taking on a more soulful sound. With Michael's voice having changed, the overall sound of the group changed as well. The little boys were now becoming adults, and those high notes that only Michael could hit were retired.

The album was a breakaway from the group's bubblegum soul sound as they came up with a more funk-oriented album similar to The Temptations Norman Whitfield-produced albums. Whitfield in fact provides covers of two of his Temptations songs here, 'You Need Love Like I Do (Don't You)', and 'Hum Along And Dance'. The Jackson 5's cover of the latter song, an eight-minute album-closer, is today regarded as the most notable version of the song. 'Get It Together' was also one of the earliest disco albums, released at a time before the genre was mainstream.

This album is special it has the "GIT" die-cut cover, the group's name is listed as "The Jackson 5ive" on the cover.

All songs produced by Hal Davis.

Man In The Music (2nd Edition) Book CoverMan In The Music (2nd Edition) [Book]
Released: 27-08-2019

A fully updated of the book 'Man In The Music: The Creative Life And Work' of Michael Jackson will be released on August 27, published by Vintage (Penguin/Random House).

For half a century, Michael Jackson’s music has been an indelible part of our cultural consciousness. Landmark albums such as Off the Wall and Thriller shattered records, broke racial barriers, amassed awards, and set a new standard for popular music. While his songs continue to be played in nearly every corner of the world, however, they have rarely been given serious critical attention. The first book dedicated solely to exploring his creative work, Man in the Music guides us through an unparalleled analysis of Jackson’s recordings, album by album, from his trailblazing work with Quincy Jones to his later collaborations with Teddy Riley, Jimmy Jam, Terry Lewis, and Rodney Jerkins. Drawing on rare archival material and on dozens of original interviews with the collaborators, engineers, producers, and songwriters who helped bring the artist’s music into the world, Jackson expert and acclaimed cultural critic Joseph Vogel reveals the inspirations, demos, studio sessions, technological advances, setbacks and breakthroughs, failures and triumphs, that gave rise to an immortal body of work.

“Brilliantly cracks the DNA of Michael Joseph Jackson. . . . A pointed, intelligent dissection of an epic body of work.” —Spike Lee

“The only comprehensive and critical rundown of Jackson’s solo material.”—Rolling Stone.

“A must-have for any Jackson fan. . . . A fascinating read. . . . Each song Jackson recorded during his solo career is examined with a critical eye.” —Associated Press.

“Don’t be surprised if it makes you go back and listen . . . with a whole new outlook on the King of Pop.”—Zack O’Malley Greenburg, author of Michael Jackson, Inc.

“This is the kind of book about Michael Jackson’s music, artistry, and creativity that really needed to be written—and Joseph Vogel has done it and done it very well. I am absolutely floored by Joe’s in-depth research and perceptive insight into what made Michael the one-of-a-kind, recording-breaking King of Pop. And—amazingly enough—even I learned a lot!”—J. Randy Taraborrelli, author of 'The Magic And The Madness'.

In this book Calleja opens a thorough investigation, where the reader will be able to solve at the same time the infinite that ten years after his death remain unanswered: what if the doctor who was convicted of involuntary manslaughter, was not to blame for the death of Michael Jackson?

What if the homicide was not involuntary? Who is behind his death? Who benefited his death? Was he more dead than alive? And, most fundamentally, who was really Michael Jackson? From the hand of the author you will be able to know the forensic testimonies, the federal, police, judicial evidence, and the economic data until the rabid news.

You can see the images, graphics and unpublished documents in your file. Everything at your disposal to give your verdict.

The Awfully Big Adventure: Michael Jackson In The Afterlife Book CoverThe Awfully Big Adventure: Michael Jackson In The Afterlife (Book)
Released: 18-06-2019

The book 'The Awfully Big Adventure: Michael Jackson In The Afterlife' book is released in the UK by publisher Faber & Faber.

Michael Jackson died on June 25 2009 in Los Angeles, from of acute propofol and benzodiazepine intoxication (according to Wikipedia). The one-time King of Pop was preparing for one last assault on the mainstream with a proposed 50 night run of shows in London (thereby trumping his arch-rival, Prince, who had just concluded his legendary 21 Nights). His exhaustion, paranoia, and general ill-heath were an open secret. He had lived many lives and inhabited many bodies; PT Barnum, Fred Astaire, and Peter Pan in one mortal coil. His death was mourned by hundreds of millions of fans, but it was almost as if he had been dead for some time already. And in his death, in vivid technicolor, we relived the dreams, nightmares, fantasies, and perversions that we had all projected on to him as a celebrity for four decades.

Paul Morley’s short biographical portrait of Michael Jackson looks at how we turned the most outrageous child star talent of the late 20th century into a monster; how his decline soundtracked the end of Pop and the end of American Imperialism; how his once staggeringly modern and funky music became secondary to the dysfunctional freak show of watching a vulnerable man literally disintegrate. Tender, erudite, and provocative, Morley's monograph documents a tragedy that is so Shakespearean in scale that it obscures the legacy of the last of the great Song and Dance Men. This is a rare piece of pop cultural alchemy that cuts through the myth in a way that only a writer as great as Paul Morley could do.

Released: 18-06-2019

The book 'Over Michael Jackson - Een analyse van The King of Pop' book (original title is 'On Michael Jackson') is released in Holland by publisher De Arbeiderspers. This book is the translation into dutch by Pauline Slot.

Michael Jackson, The King of Pop: icon, provocator, mystery. Who was he really? And how are his spectacular rise and catastrophic decline determined by those who have shaped him, who have damaged him and who loved him?

Margo Jefferson wrote an astute analysis of this broken man, who was convicted for his skin and appearance, his inscrutable behavior, his dubious relationship with children. A tragic story that we can only accept if we acknowledge what it evokes in us - despair, sadness, anger, compassion - and try to translate it into wisdom.

Following the abuse that came to light in the documentary 'Leaving Neverland', Margo Jefferson wrote a new introduction.
