The Jacksons Late-Seventies Disco Albums To Be Expanded.
Released: 12-02-2021

Epic Records and Legacy Recordings, the catalog division of Sony Music Entertainment, will release on February 12 expanded digital editions of the classic albums recorded by The Jacksons as they built on their Jackson 5 boy band origins and emerged as avatars of an R&B/pop revolution.

The group's 'The Jacksons' (1976), 'Goin' Places' (1977), and 'Destiny' (1978) will arrive digitally with the addition of bonus tracks.

The Jacksons was the group's first album for Epic after splitting with Motown, and it was their first without Jermaine, who was married to Motown founder Berry Gordy’s daughter Hazel and opted to stay on that label. His younger brother Randy then stepped into the mix. Despite the switch, the album was a hit, later certified gold, thanks to the hits 'Enjoy Yourself' and 'Show Me The Way You Go'. One of the albums deep cuts, 'Blue Away', was Michael Jackson's first-ever solo songwriting credit. The expanded edition of the album adds 7-inch and 12-inch mixes of the big hits, as well as a Dimitri From Paris re-edit of 'Living Together'.

'Goin' Places' didn’t fare as well on the charts, although the title track reached the Top 10 on the R&B chart. The new edition features the 7-inch mix of that track, as well as 'Find Me A Girl' and 'Even Though You're Gone'. 'Destiny', released a year later, was a bigger hit, later certified platinum. This was thanks to the disco hits 'Blame It On The Boogie' and 'Shake Your Body (Down To The Ground)', which presaged Michael Jackson's disco reinvention a year later on his 'Off The Wall' solo album. The expanded edition of 'Destiny' contains more singles mixes of the hits, as well as DJ and remixer John Luongo's disco mixes of the big hits.

After the release on November 6 on Walmart of 'The Ultimate Collection' of the Jackson 5 in colored double vinyl, know that this album will be released in classic color double vinyl on February 5th, 2021 in the USA by Motown.

The years 1969-75 belonged to the Jackson 5, and 'The Ultimate Collection' duly concentrates on this period. The one exception is the group’s remixed version of 'It’s Your Thing' from 1995. Originally written and waxed by the Isley Brothers, the Jackson 5 recorded the song in 1969, but never received a proper release until appearing on 'Soulstation'! 'The 25th Anniversary Collection' in 1995. The Jackson 5’s initial take of 'It’s Your Thing' is included on 'The Ultimate Collection' as well.

All 21 songs that let you hear the sound that was completed despite being bubblegum soul. There are 4 solo songs from Michael and 1 song of Jermaine.

A Real-Life Fairy Tale: Michael Jackson And Me Book CoverA Real-Life Fairy Tale: Michael Jackson And Me (Book)
Released: 01-01-2021

A CORK writer who had a deeply intimate friendship with 'King of Pop' Michael Jackson has written a book in an attempt to clear his name against what she calls the 'tsunami of lies' that tormented him.

'A Real-Life Fairy Tale: Michael Jackson And Me' book is a memoir by Irish fan Talitha Linehan, in which she describes seeing Michael perform at 17 HIStory concerts, meeting him at hotels and venues across Europe, the US, and Asia, spending a day with him at Neverland Valley, and becoming a daily presence around him during his final years. The book includes never-before-published photographs of Michael and Talitha, and messages he wrote to her, from her private collection.
"You're my fairy tale, Michael." "Oooh," said Michael, and he brushed my cheek with his hand, making me flutter. This was the moment, under a starry sky in Las Vegas, when Talitha Linehan told Michael Jackson how she’d viewed him since childhood, not just as a man but as a magical being.

It was a perception that never wavered, throughout hundreds of encounters she had with him over more than a decade, in public and in private, at venues and hotels across the world, inside his most famous home, Neverland Valley, and inside his final home, in Los Angeles.

In this deeply personal memoir, Talitha recalls a journey that began when she discovered Michael, while growing up in the Irish countryside, and that ended when she last spoke to him, at a rehearsal studio in LA, on the last night of his life.

By drawing on diary entries, she reveals the joy and heartache of loving and losing the most famous star on the planet, and a man she simply loves with all of her heart.

Fans of the star will relate to the emotional heart of Talitha's journey and gain new insight into the man behind the megastar, and his life, in public and in private, during his final years.
