Moving_ iolation Album (Yellow) Cover'Moving Violation' Album (Yellow Vinyl) Is Reissued. 20-09-'18

The site of Fnac announces that the album 'Moving Violation' of the Jackson Five, released under the Motown label on May 15th, 1975, will be reissued on September 21 in yellow vinyl. This reissue is announced as a limited edition of 2000 copies.

By the end of their six-year run in Motown, all five Jackson brothers had matured dramatically in both age and vocals: youngest member Michael was, at 16, the only non-adult in the group. With the boys now becoming men, it was difficult for the group to deal with Motown's policies against writing and producing their own material.

Like 'Dancing Machine' before it, 'Moving Violation' was an early-disco album. The group's funk-based version of Diana Ross & the Supremes 1968 single 'Forever Came Today' was a club hit, while the single's b-side, the R&B ballad 'All I Do Is Think Of You', became a popular and frequently covered song in its own right.

Moving_ iolation Album (Yellow)The Jackson 5 closed out their celebrated Motown tenure with 'Moving Violation', a slight if intermittently engaging LP buoyed, as always, by the brothers remarkable vocals.

All songs produced by Brian Holland, Mel Larsen, Jerry Marcellino & Hal Davis.

Track list:

1. Forever Came Today - 6:25
2. Moving Violation - 3:36
3. (You Were Made) Especially For Me - 3:24
4. Honey Love - 4:33

1. Body Language (Do The Love Dance) - 4:05
2. All I Do Is Think Of You - 3:14
3. Breezy - 3:36
4. Call Of The Wild - 2:34
5. Time Explosion - 4:03

Record label: Motown
Series number: ?
Printed: ?
Guide price: 24 €

Janet Jackson First Heard Michael's Hit 'Thriller' While Sat In His Car. 18-09-'18

Janet JacksonWhen Michael Jackson first revealed his song 'Thriller' to the world, you’d have expected him to have thrown a huge listening party with his friends and family.

However, it appears he did something very different, and a lot more humble.

Surprisingly, the star flung open his car door, invited his sister Janet into the passengers side, and asked if she’d like to hear his new hit.

A little less extravagant than a party, but a lot more modest – and we quite like it.

Speaking to The Official Vodafone Big Top 40, the 52-year-old opened up on how she and her brothers would make music, as well as the first time she head some of Michael’s hits.

She said: ‘Mike used to always throw me in the car and play me his albums before he played them for anybody.

‘[We would] just sit in the car and this major sound system, and just listen to everything from front to back. He played me Thriller and Off The Wall to see what I thought.’

She then went on to speak about her family’s song writing process, and it appears they all chipped in together.

Janet said: ‘If we’re around and there’s a piano and someone’s playing and someone said “I just wrote this the other day” and started playing it and next thing you know somebody is singing a melody to it and you know that would happen a lot and that’s how a lot of songs got created, that way.’

What To Expect From The Broadway-Bound Michael Jackson Musical. 16-09-'18

Director-choreographer Christopher Wheeldon shares preliminary details of the production.

Christopher Wheeldon It’s early yet to determine exactly what the Michael Jackson musical will look like when it hits Broadway (projected to bow in 2020), even for director-choreographer Christopher Wheeldon. “We’ve done one 29-hour reading, so we’re still working on the book,” he says of working with book writer and two-time Pulitzer Prize winner Lynn Nottage.

As previously announced the musical is a collaboration between The Michael Jackson Estate and Columbia Live Stage. Wheeldon is about to begin a dance lab for the show, which leads into “a four-week overall lab” as the duo develops the work.

But one thing he is clear on is that this is not a sweeping bio-musical of the King of Pop’s entire life. “The show is very much anchored in one particular moment in time,” Wheeldon tells Playbill. “I always bring up the fabulous movie that Spielberg made about Lincoln: You take one key moment, I suppose, in the history of someone’s life and then sort of use that as an anchor point for past storytelling and, perhaps, some kind of prophecy of what’s to come. We’ll be doing that with this story.”

Aside from the script, Wheeldon has another daunting task ahead of him: choreographing the man who popularized the moonwalk.

The Tony winner for Best Choreography for his 'An American In Paris' likens this project to that Broadway adaptation. “In the same way fans of the 'American In Paris' movie would have wanted and, I hope, felt that they came away with a real sense of the style of that period and of [choreographer and star] Gene Kelly and of [star] Leslie Caron, that might kind of be the route we go with Michael,” Wheeldon reveals. “I also intend to put quite a lot of Michael’s work in the show, as well.”

Michael Jackson’s ‘Thriller’ Named Most Inspiring Album Of All Time. 14-09-'18

Thriller Album CoverMichael Jackson’s album 'Thriller' is the most inspiring album of all time, according to a survey of British people.

The King of Pop’s classic record was identified as the album to have had the biggest impact on people's lives.

To date, it’s sold around 66 million copies worldwide and features some of his biggest hits - including 'Billie Jean', 'Beat It' and 'Wanna Be Startin' Somethin'.

The second spot went to The Beatles 'Sgt. Pepper’s Lonely Hearts Club Band', while third place went to Abba and their 'Gold: Greatest Hits' compilation.

Other records in the top 40 list include 'Definitely Maybe' by Oasis, Pink Floyd’s 'The Dark Side Of The Moon' and David Bowie’s 'Heroes'.

The poll of 2,000 UK adults was commissioned ahead of the 2018 Hyundai Mercury Prize, which takes place on Thursday 20 September.

Tony Whitehorn, Hyundai Motor UK president and CEO, said: “These results are a great example of exactly why we are a title sponsor of the Hyundai Mercury Prize.

“Music means so much to so many people in the UK, creating memories, inspiring changes and lifting moods.

“I’m sure we can all relate to sitting in the car listening to the end of your favourite song, even as you’ve reached your destination.”

Michael JacksonMore To Come Of Michael Jackson In The Future. 12-09-'18

At the Michael Jackson Diamond Celebration in Las Vegas was a question and answer session with Michael’s Estate.

•John Branca explained that he is asking the RIAA (Recording Industry Association of America) to check the sales of the Eagles ‘Greatest Hits,’ as he doesn’t believe that ‘Thriller’ is now 2nd in album sales in the U.S.

•The Estate would like to open a Michael Jackson Museum and release a ‘Dangerous’ and a ‘HIStory’ documentary. Mr Branca said there is some good ‘HIStory’ footage and the ‘Dangerous’ documentary will be about the making of ‘Dangerous.’

•A version of ‘Ghosts’ in 3D will be released, but not next year.

•Regarding previous short film and video releases – Mr Branca said that once the technology becomes available to better what they have, they will use this technology to enhance Michael’s work.

•They will never sell MIJAC.

•They are currently focusing on the Michael Jackson Broadway show which they are looking to open around 2020. There will also be some trials of the show in Chicago prior to the official release.

•Drake approached Michael’s Estate with the idea for the song ‘Don’t Matter To Me.’ It was taken from the same session as ‘Love Never Felt So Good’ with Paul Anka.

•The Estate has ten more years of things they would like to do.

Prince JacksonPrince Jackson Vows To Carry On Father Michael's Charity Work. 12-09-'18

Prince Jackson vowed to carry on his father Michael Jackson's charitable legend as he collected the Motif Lifetime Medal of Honor.

The 21-year-old star picked up the youth advocacy award over the weekend at the Disney Concert Hall in Los Angeles and promised he would continue the King of Pop's charitable legacy.

He said: ''This is a really special moment for me. My dad did some cool things, but his biggest passion was helping others. I learned how important that was from him. We called the foundation Heal L.A., because the goal was to further the cause of dad's Heal the World organisation and start locally by helping out at home. John and I got together with a few of our friends at school and decided to do little things to help out. All of a sudden, it just got bigger and bigger. We were giving more and hosting more events, and all of these amazing people started helping. Let's heal L.A. and Heal The World.''

And Prince thinks his father ''would be very happy'' with his charitable efforts.

He shared: ''Our generation, they focus on the wrong things, like, 'Who's wearing what? Who's doing what? Who's vacationing where?' There are real problems going on in the world that can be helped not by powerful people but by everyday people who just go in and devote their time,'' he said at the time. ''You should be decent enough to help out or want to help out your fellow man or woman.
