The Jacksons Story CD Album CoverThe Jacksons Story (CD Album)
Released: 20-07-2004

For the first time on a single-disc compilation, Hip O's 'The Jacksons Story' combines both the group's Motown and Epic singles along with solo hits by Michael and Jermaine. The CD album will be released on July 20 in the USA by Hip-O Records.

Spanning 1969-1983, the program begins with early-70s J5 chart-toppers like 'I Want You Back', 'll Be There', and 'ABC', then delves into Michael's initial solo records of the same era: 'Ben,' 'Rockin' Robin', and 'Got To Be There'. By 1976, the Jacksons had severed their long relationship with Motown and switched to Epic, reflected here by seven noteworthy tunes, including 'Enjoy Yourself' and 'Shake Your Body (Down To The Ground)'.

When the group changed record companies, Jermaine, who was married to the daughter of Motown honcho Berry Gordy, remained and was rewarded with his first solo hit in 1980s 'Let's Get Serious'. The disc wraps up with two songs that represent the beginning of Michael's solo career in earnest with 1979s 'Don't Stop 'Til You Get Enough' and the massive hit 'Billie Jean', released four years later. Though it's not as comprehensive as 1995s 21-track 'Ultimate Collection', 'The Jacksons Story' holds together well and still offers a decent selection of the band's career highlights.

Track list:

1. I Want You Back - The Jackson 5 - 2:59
2. ABC - The Jackson 5 - 2:57
3. The Love You Save - The Jackson 5 - 3:04

The Very Best Of The Jacksons (2CD Set) CD Album CoverThe Very Best Of The Jacksons (2CD Album)
Released: 28-06-2004

After the release of 'The Essential Jacksons' there's already a successor of Sony Music on the market. 'The Very Best Of The Jacksons' double CD album is released in Austria and contains totally 32 tracks from the Jackson 5, as well as the Jacksons.

Split across two discs, disc one primarily features the early Motown days and the second, mainly their hits as the Jacksons (as opposed to Jackson 5) released on Epic.

Often overshadowed by Michael's subsequent success as a solo artist, this anthology demonstrates why the Jacksons perfect balance of pop and soul has endured when compared to one-time peers such as the Osmonds. The irresistible funk of 'ABC' and 'I Want You Back' are classics of the period as are the incredible ballads 'Got To Be There' and little Michael's ode to a loveable rodent, 'Ben'.

Highlights of disc two are predominantly from their massive albums 'Destiny' and 'Triumph', released in the late 1970s, early 1980s; 'Can You Feel It', 'Blame It On The Boogie' and 'Shake Your Body' to name but three. It was around this time that Michael began his adult solo career and 'The Very Best Of The Jacksons' appropriately ends with a live version of 'Don't Stop 'Til You Get Enough' from MJ's 'Off The Wall'. Michael may have gone on to eclipse his family but there can be little dispute that the Jacksons are one of the most important musical dynasties ever.

Released: 04-06-2004

'The Magic & The Madness' updated book of Michael Jackson will be released on June 4 in the UK by publisher Pan Books and written by J. Randy Taraborrelli.

So much has now been said and written about the life and career of Michael Jackson that it has become almost impossible to disentangle the man from the myth. Recent revelations are only the latest instalments of a saga that began decades ago.

This book is the fruit of over 30 years of research and hundreds of exclusive interviews with a remarkable level of access to the very closest circles of the Jackson family - including Michael himself.

Cutting through tabloid rumours, J. Randy Taraborrelli traces the real story behind the Michael Jackson we see and hear today, from his drilling as a child star through the blooming of his talent to his ever-changing personal appearance and bizarre publicity stunts.

This major biography includes the behind-the-scenes story to many of the landmarks in Jackson's life: his legal and commercial battles, his marriages to Lisa Marie Presley and Debbie Rowe, his passions and addictions, his children. Objective and revealing, it carries the hallmarks of all of Taraborrelli's best-sellers: impeccable research, brilliant storytelling and definitive documentation.

Now is this month the double CD album released in Mexico with 30 tracks of Michael Jackson.

You will notice that the first CD is gold with a black silhouette of Michael, where the second CD is black with a gold silhouette of Michael. It looks different from the regular 'HIStory' releases, a nice touch.

Unlike the first edition of the album, which came in a double box, it is presented in a type 'jewel' box; for budgetary reasons I think, because it is precisely the aim of this edition: put this great album again the market at a more affordable price.

The Essential Jacksons CD Album CoverThe Essential Jacksons (CD Album)
Released: 09-03-2004

Again will be released in the USA on the market a new greatest hits album of The Jacksons. 'The Essential Jacksons' CD album will be available on March 9 with 13 tracks of The Jacksons and one live number of Michael's 'Don't Stop 'Til You Get Enough'.

Their disco and funk material, highlighted by the singles 'Enjoy Yourself', 'Shake Your Body (Down To The Ground)', 'Lovely One', 'This Place Hotel', 'Can You Feel It', and the post-Thriller hit duet with Mick Jagger, 'State Of Shock'.

While this material may not be as irresistible or timeless as the Motown material -- nor is it as transcendent as Michael Jackson's solo album 'Off The Wall', which was done in this style, only better -- the best of the singles ('Shake Your Body' and 'Can You Feel It' in particular) stand among the group's best work, and this is the best way to hear it. After all, prior to this collection in 2004, there was no good CD-era compilation of the Jacksons late-70s/early-80s recordings, and this fills that absence very well, containing all the charting hits, usually in their full-length album versions. As an overview of this often-overlooked era in the Jacksons and Michael Jackson's career, this is first-rate.

Track list:

1. Enjoy Yourself (Extended Version) - 3:40
2. Show You The Way To Go - 5:26
3. Goin' Places - 4:29
4. Find Me A Girl - 4:33
5. Blame It On The Boogie - 3:30

11. State Of Shock (with Mick Jagger) - 4:30
12. 2300 Jackson Street - 5:05
