Michael Jackson's Trials

Michael Jackson's Trials


The Ongoing Trials of The Late Michael Jackson

Sunday, September 19, 2004


I understand that a five disc box collection, which covers the solo career of Michael Jackson between 1969-2004, will be released by Sony on 16 November.

The collection includes four CDs of 57 tracks, containing thirteen previously unreleased songs; plus a DVD with a complete concert from Budapest in 1992.

The unearthed rarities include; 'Shake Your Body', 'Sunset Driver' recorded during the Off The Wall sessions, an early version of Thriller's 'PYT' and Michael's solo demo of 'We Are The World'.

This seems a little perverse to me.

On the one hand Jackson is calling the music industry greedy and manipulative; saying that they forced him to pay off those who have accused him of molestation in the past. However, on the other hand, he is happy to take their "dollar"; by releasing a rehash of long forgotten tracks, not deemed to be good enough to release at the time.

Maybe I am just being too cynical?
