Michael Jackson Justice: Breaking News or Breaking Wind?

God: Reconnect to Him

The Conspiracy against God is about "The Word", and the profaning of His Holy Name within us. Adam fell in the garden, breaking the direct connection to God. Jesus, the "last Adam" was a quickening Spirit, the Word made Flesh, and the only one with whom we can re-establish our relationship with God. Michael's story is still unfolding. He is the one who is, is not. But Jesus is the only name given under heaven by which we must be saved. Many are trying to rewrite HIStory. We were given a help to instruct us. Learn more "here".

Breaking News or Breaking Wind?

December 7, 2010 – Breaking News Fails at Convincing Fans
Michael Jackson Hijack in Full Disclosure



I was unprepared for this today so I hope that you forgive me.  I ran into this by accident while researching for Michael’s song “Heartbreaker” and I will have that up for you tomorrow.  Meanwhile, this could not wait.

I found on one of the Michael fan forums the leaking of the credits for the Album “Michael” by Sony.  I thought I would go over this with you because I find the omission of certain participants interesting.  I caution you that the source may not be reliable, but I was able to corroborate some of this as you will see below.

Hold My Hand (Duet with Akon)

Written by Aliaune Thiam, Giorgio Tuinfort, Claude Kelly / Published by Byefall Productions, Inc./Sony ATV Harmony (ASCAP), Piano Music/Sony ATV Tunes (BMI), Talpa Music Publishing (BUMA), Studio Beast Music/Warner Tamerlane Music Corp (BMI) / Produced by Akon for Upfront/Konvict, Giorgio Tuinfort for Piano Music / Co-Produced by Michael Jackson for MJJ Productions, Inc. / Akon appears courtesy of SRC/Universal Records, a Division of UMG Recordings, Inc. / Recorded by Mark 'Exit' Goodchild for Milk Money Consulting at Palms Studio's Las Vegas, US, Solitaire Studio's Atlanta, US, Metropolis Studio's London, UK, Wisseloord Studio's Hilversum, Netherlands and FC Walvisch Studio's Amsterdam, Netherlands / Recording Assistants: Mack Woodward, Justin Pintar, Matt Paul, Miguel Scott, Kory Aaron, Eelco Bakker and Ryan Wiese / Orchestra Recorded by Wessel Oltheten / Orchestra Recording Assistant: Dennis Krijnen / Mixed by Serban Ghenea / String Arrangement: Franck van der Heijden / All Instruments and Programming: Akon and Giorgio Tuinfort

“Hold My Hand” is the first single on the “Michael” album that Sony exchanged after family members and those working with Michael declared that “Breaking News” was not Michael’s voice.  In looking at the “Duet with Akon” which I have heard and was released originally on Akon’s album and released as a single for Michael in 2007 (could not find confirming source for date of single as of this writing).  The song was written by neither Michael nor Akon and was published by Byefall Productions, Inc and Sony ATV Harmony.  This listing does not credit vocals at all, only recording assistants.

I am also learning that as different parts of songs are produced in different studios at different times, what looks like a collaboration may not be, as you will see below.

Hollywood Tonight

Written by Michael Jackson, Brad Buxer / Spoken Bridge Written by Teddy Riley / Published by Mijac Music, Adida Music Inc. / Produced by Teddy Riley, Michael Jackson / Co-Produced by Theron “Neff-U” Feemster / Mixed by Jean-Marie Horvat, Teddy Riley, Scott Elgin / Programming and Finisher: Teddy Riley / Vocals Recorded by Michael Durham Prince and Mischke / Additional Background Vocals: Mischke / Spoken Bridge by Taryll Jackson / Whistling: Danny Ray McDonald, Jr., Michael Durham Prince / Engineered by Scott Elgin, James Murray, Michael Durham Prince, Jon Nettlesbey / Assistant Engineer: Quentinn Gilkey / Keyboard: Theron “Neff-U” Feemster, Edward Brown / Guitar: Erick Donell Walls, Eric Jackson / Horns: The Regiment

Hollywood Tonight writer is credited to Michael Jackson and the spoken bridge by Teddy Riley.  Here is where the “collaboration” appears.  The producers are listed as Teddy Riley and Michael Jackson, but Michael Jackson did not put this album together obviously.  Michael’s production happened obviously before June 25, 2009.  Teddy Riley’s production work happened later, while sprucing this up for the album.  Notice the vocals on this . . . Michael Durham Prince and Mischke. Background vocals are Mischke.  Where is Michael?  Whistling credits by Danny Ray McDonald and Michael Durham Prince.  No credits for Michael vocals.  Cascios appear nowhere in the credits for this song.


Hollywood tonight

Keep Your Head Up

Written by Michael Jackson, Eddie Cascio, James Porte / Published by
Mijac Music, Jab Me Music / Produced by C “Tricky” Stewart for Red Zone Entertainment, Inc., Angelikson, Michael Jackson for MJJ Productions, Inc. / Mixed by Jaycen Joshua for the Penua Project / Mix Assisted by Jesus Garnica / Background Vocals: Michael Jackson, James Porte / Additional Backing Vocals: Duawne Starling / Engineered by Brian “B-Luv” Thomas, Andrew Wuepper / Engineering Assisted by Jason Sherwood, Steven Dennis, Travis Harrington Stuart Brawley, Joe Corcoran, Drew Harris / Musicians: Jamie Wollam, Rudy Bird, Sean Hurley, Stuart Brawley, Joe Corcoran, Eddie Cascio, James Porte, Lamont “Monty” Neuble, Cameron Stone, Nicole Garcia / Drum Programming: Joe Corcoran and James Porte

Finally, we see Eddie Cascio on the third track on this album/CD.  Mijack is publisher for this and the previous song and produced by C “Tricky for Red Zone Entertainment (whoever they are). AND Michael for MJJ Productions.  No credit for recording vocals, Michael is listed as background vocals along with James Porte and Duawne Starling for additional backing vocals.  Eddie Cascio is listed as a musician on this but not Michael.  This could be one of the unfinished tracks that Michael’s nephew and family identified.

Michael/Jason Malachi Vibrato Comparison (Keep Your Head Up)
Michael’s is stronger, more developed, Jason’s is breathier and faster


(I Like) The Way You Love Me

Written by Michael Jackson / Published by Mijac Music / Produced by Theron “Neff-U” Feemster, Michael Jackson / Mixed by Serban Ghenea / Engineer for Mix: John Hanes / Assisted by Tim Roberts / Vocals Recorded by Michael Durham Prince / Engineered by James Murray / Piano: William C. Champlin / Guitar: Erick Donell Walls / Bass: Thomas Drayton / Percussion: Paulinho da Costa / Keyboards and Drum Programming: Theron “Neff-U” Feemster

This song is written by Michael, published by Mijac and co-produced by Michael, however vocals are Michael Durham Prince.  Neither Michael nor Cascio appear nowhere else on this song.  The credits on this are scant, but no Michael listed for vocals at all except for Prince.  The credits possibly reveal not only an unfinished track, but one in which Michael never produced vocals for, only the music.




Monster (Featuring 50 Cent)

Written by Michael Jackson, Eddie Cascio, James Porte / Rap Lyrics Written by Curtis Jackson / Published by Mijac Music, Jab Me Music, Curtis Jackson 50 Cent Music Publishing (admin by Universal Music Publishing) (ASCAP) / Produced by Teddy Riley, Angelikson, Michael Jackson / Mixed by Jean-Marie Horvat, Teddy Riley / Programming and Finisher: Teddy Riley / Background Vocals: Michael Jackson, James Porte / Kids’ Scream: Nigel and Naiden Maynard / Recording Engineer: Scott Elgin, Khaliq Glover AKA Khaliq-O-Vision, Quenton Gilkey (Assistant Engineer), Luis Navarro, Zachariah Redding (Assistants Engineer on the Rap) (Recorded at Boom Boom Room), Stuart Brawley, Glen Marchese, Joe Corcoran, Drew Harris / Rap Performed by 50 Cent courtesy of Shady/Aftermath/Interscope Records / Musicians: Rudy Bird, Joe Corcoran, Eddie Cascio, Stuart Brawley, Cameron Stone, Sharon Jackson, Orianthi courtesy of Geffen Records

This song, vocals listed are background for Michael and James Porte.  Eddie Cascio is listed as well as Orianthi as musicians.  Did Orianthi know Michael before TII?  If we assume no, then we must also assume that Orianthi recorded her part of the track AFTER which means she had no problem coming in to do this for Sony.  Judging by the credits this looks like an unfinished track that Sony brought people in to “finish”.

Best Of Joy

Written by Michael Jackson / Published by Mijac Music / Produced by Theron “Neff-U” Feemster, Michael Jackson / Co-Produced by Brad Buxer / Mixed by Serban Ghenea / Engineer for Mix John Hanes / Assisted by Tim Roberts / Vocals Recorded by Michael Durham Prince and Mischke / Additional Background Vocals: Mischke / Engineered by James Murray / Guitar: Erick Donell Walls / All Other Instruments: Theron “Neff-U” Feemster

This is another unfinished track in which Vocals for Michael do not appear present.  Credits for Vocals listed are for Prince and Mischke only.  Michael is credited with writing and publishing through Mijac and co-producing with Neff-U, who probably finished production on an unfinished piece.

Breaking News

Written by Michael Jackson, Eddie Cascio, James Porte / Published by Mijac Music, Jab Me Music / Produced by Teddy Riley, Angelikson, Michael Jackson / Mixed by Jean-Marie Horvat, Teddy Riley / Programming and Finisher: Teddy Riley / Recording Engineer: Scott Elgin, Khaliq Glover AKA Khaliq-O-Vision, Stuart Brawley, Glen Marchese, Joe Corcoran, Drew Harris / Assistant Engineer: Quenton Gilkey / String Session Recording Engineer: Reggie Dozer / String Session Assistant Engineer: Brandon Datoli / Voiceover Engineers: Myron Chandler And Dave Hampton / String Session: The Benjamin Wright Orchestra / Arranged and Conducted By Benjamin Wright / Musicians: James Porte, Stuart Brawley, Eddie Cascio, Joe Corcoran / Voice Talents: Stuart Brawley, Sandy Orkin, Stacey Michaels, Michael Lefevre, Lisa Orkin / Voiceover Producer: Michael Lefevre

Ah!  The “controversial” song!  Let’s look at voice first . . . Musicians are listed as Porte, Brawley, Cascio and Corcoran.  Voice Talents are Brawley, Orkin, Michaels and Michael Lefevre and Orkin.  Voiceover Producer is Lefevre and voiceover engineers are Chandler and Hampton.  There IS NO Michael here.  None.  Michael wrote it with Cascio and Porte but he is nowhere in the talent on this song. Riley however, is producer, mixer and programming and finisher.  Michael . . . where for art thou, Michael?

Sony Stinks!




(I Can’t Make It) Another Day

(Featuring Lenny Kravitz)
Written by Lenny Kravitz / Published by Lenny Kravitz/Miss Bessie Music / Produced by Lenny Kravitz / Co-Pproduced by Michael Jackson / Mixed by Lenny Kravitz / Lead and Background Vocals: Michael Jackson / Background Vocals: Lenny Kravitz / Michael Jackson’s Vocals Recorded at Marvin’s Room by Henry Hirsch / Electric Guitar: Lenny Kravitz / Bass: Lenny Kravitz / Mini Moog: Lenny Kravitz / String and Horn samples: Lenny Kravitz / Timpani: Lenny Kravitz / Gong: Lenny Kravitz / 12-String Electric Guitar: Craig Ross / Drums: Dave Grohl / Drum Programming and Noise: Dave Barron and Lenny Kravitz / Synthesizer Programming: Dave Baron / Studio Technician and Additional Programming: Alex Alvarez

This song is more Kravitz than Michael.  Michael Co-produces, lead and background vocals.  Michael did not write it, Michael did not publish it, Michael had no rights to this song.  Michael did not even record it in the same place as Kravitz.  Did they ever meet?  I am picturing Michael in a plane, just dropping “parts” of songs and them landing in different areas for different artists to pick up just to see what Sony would do with them.  In looking through this I can’t help think that this too was calculated, but not by Sony.  If you want to see how deviant a music label can be, just leave pieces of your work laying around giving them the idea that you will never see it again, and see what they do with it.

Behind The Mask

Written by Michael Jackson, Chris Mosdell, Ryuichi Sakamoto / Published by Mijac Music (BMI) All rights administered by Warner-Tamerlane Publishing Corp. (BMI) & by Alfa Music, Inc. (JASRAC) All Rights Administered by Sony/ATV Tunes LLC (ASCAP) / Produced by Michael Jackson, John McClain & Jon Nettlesbey / 'Behind The Mask' contains a sample of the recording "Behind The Mask" as performed by Yellow Magic Orchestra. (P) 1979 Alfa Music, Inc. Licensed by Alfa Music, Inc. All Rights Reserved. / Mixed by Jon Nettlesbey, Khaliq Glover / Lead & Background Vocals: Michael Jackson / Additional Background Vocals: Shanice Wilson, Alphonso Jones / Background Vocals Arranged by Leon F. Sylvers III / Engineered by Jon Nettlesbey, Allen Sides, Khaliq Glover / Saxophone and Saxophonic Percussion: Mike Phillips courtesy of Hidden Beach Recordings / Keyboards & Drum Programming: Big Jim Wright / Additional Keyboards: Greg Phillinganes / Bass: Alex Al / Percussion: Paulino Da Costa / Additional Keyboards, Drum Programming, Sequencing & Digital Editing: Jon Nettlesbey

Behind the mask looks to be the rare completed piece although we would never know because Michael is not here to tell us.  Michael’s credits on this song are co-writer, Mijac published (administered by BMI Warner-Tamerlane and Alpha Music.  Sony/ATV also ).  Michael co-produces or I should say PRE-produced, then John McClain and John Nettlesbey.  Lead and background vocals is Michael (FINALLY!  Is that all we get on this album?)

Much Too Soon

Written by Michael Jackson / Published by Mijac Music / Produced by Michael Jackson, John McClain / Mixed by Allen Sides / Guitar: Tommy Emmanuel / Khora: Dean Parks / Harmonica: Tommy Morgan / Accordion: Suzie Katayama / Arranger & Conductor: David Campbell / Contractor: Suzie Katayama / Concertmaster: Charlie Bisharat

This is another scant credit list for this song.  Michael’s credits are writer, Mijac published, coproduced (pre-produced, with John McClain finishing).  No credit for vocals listed on this at all.

I did a search on all copyrights listed under Michael Jackson while trying to find copyright information on “Heartbreaker”.  What resulted was a huge list of copyrights which were categorized into “Michael Jackson Company, LLC”, “Michael Jackson Estate”, and “Michael Jackson Productions”. 

Under the estate I found a list of music that are NOT on this new “Michael” album.  They are:

Adore you, Boy No., Brad Loop 3.3.7. MJ., Changes, Days in Gloucestershire, Don’t be Messin’, Hollywood, I Am a Loser, I Was a Loser, Innocent Man, Jungle, Just Remember, Light the Way, Michael’s Affirmation, Neverland Landing, Pray for Peace, Rocker, Thank Heaven, and World of Candy.

Of all the music listed, all of them are electronic files, and all of them hold this info on the Copyright record:

Michael Prince Durham is credited with many of the vocals on the “Michael” album songs.  Just who is Michael Durham Prince?


 
Bradley Buxey is listed as co-writer for one song on this album, “Hollywood Tonight” which could be the same music copyright “Hollywood” in the list of songs.  He comes up nowhere in searches, even using Boolean search.  Yet he is the copyright claimant for every single new song listed under Michael Jackson/Michael Jackson Estate.

More disturbing? This post found on a Michael Jackson Fan Forum

Michael Durham Prince Worked On New Songs”

"I was the first who reported about dozens of new songs MJ recorded with Bradley Buxler in 2009.

Now I can tell you that Michael Durham Prince was also present on these recording sessions, and will be credited if these songs will ever be released. He was the audio supervisor of the planned This Is It live shows."
  Source

Michael Jackson recorded dozens of songs with Durham Prince in 2009?  Really? When?  In between runs to Dr. Kleins office and rehearsals for This is It?  Should I repost Michael’s schedule in 2009?  Here it is:  Source

Remember all the stories about how weak Michael was and how according to Faye he could not even hardly get up the stairs on the stage?  Yet he had enough energy to do rehearsals, fight a lawsuit, stop a Julien’s auction, go to Dr. Kleins every other day sometimes for hours, shop with his children, go to multiple business meetings, fend off gang-stalkers who followed him everywhere (and yet never mention these recording sessions) and NOW we are to believe that Michael, the eternal perfectionist also had time to not only write but RECORD 19 songs (all in 2009) and THESE are SUPPOSED to be of that cache of unreleased songs that supposedly were already recorded???

Come-on guys!  Did you ever hear of the introduction, the body and the closing of a story?  Don’t they kind of have to MATCH UP to be BELIEVABLE?

Every one of those copyrighted pieces listed above are ELECTRONIC FILES.  Not tapes but ELECTRONIC FILES.  They may be able to come up with an explanation for that, but the rest of it?

Sony?  Why don’t you try writing IRS booklets.  That is about as artistic and COHERENT your attempts to sell fans are.

Fans, get ready to see another half-baked, sadly mimicked and voice-dubbed Michael album from Sony in the near future.

You can view ALL the copyrights on this here:  U.S. Copyright Catalog

Just “search by” name, and type in Michael Jackson.  Check it out for yourself.

UPDATE:  MICHAEL NAMES UNRELEASED SONGS 





They added to "Hold My Hand"  Destroyed the Flow and the "yeah Yeah" does not sound like Mike.  Would like opinion but how did they remix this without Mike?


What Michael thinks of Sony's Ploys

  1. Bonnie – I am speechless. I don’t know what to say. This is an amazing finding. Thank you so much for posting this unbelievable lie by Sony.

    Why is that they are claiming its Michael’s voice when they are not even giving credit for his vocal? Are they undermining the intelligent of everyone who will find out about it so quickly and question? I don’t believe they thought no one will find about their lie, they just simply don’t really care.

    I hope this will help those fans who are ready to give their hard earned money to Sony and buy this “fake” album to reconsider not buying it.

  2. @Jenn - I feel sorry for you, I really do. You are one of the few fans that are letting go of Michael for sony. I thank my God that I can see a human being behind his music and if Michael DID die, what business does Sony have producing Music with Michael's name on it? That is not a legacy my dear that is a lie.

    You have disregarded everything Michael went through and you will have to live with that. And after I post this reply I am deleting your comment because that album will not be promoted on my blog. Thank you for revealing yourself.

    Well, it didn't convince Jenn. I guess it's okay for someone to defend her when she is getting bullied but come to Michael's rescue? I guess that is too much to ask of her. Jenn is the one that that supposedly got deleted by Deborah Kunesh (remember her posts) yet she adheres to the same "worship Sony Album" There are a couple of others on my facebook page that have to be weeded out . . . This is the only way it can be done, I guess.

  4. Bonnie,
    thank you for the info, however - I think on most of the songs here it says "Vocals RECORDING" by M. D. Prince, it doesn't say that he did the vocals. He is, in fact, a sound engineer (I remember very well Michael saying something to him "Prince, no!", during the reharsals for The way you make me feel on TII.
    So Prince did his job which is to record the vocals part, and I don't have a particular problem with that.
    Having said that, of course it IS weird that Michael is credited as the lead and background vocalist on only 2 songs out of 10, whereas on any other of his albums he is Always credited, always, on every song.

    And yes, the "controversial" songs, a.k.a. the Cascio songs, are indeed Breaking News, Monster and Keep your head up. I have listened to all of them by now in their finalized version (NOT buying the album, no way), and I still have my strong doubts on those three songs.
    Much too soon is Clearly All Michael, even though he is not credited as the vocalist (why?..). No doubt on that one.
    The way you love me - of course it's in no way a New song, we have al know it for years, all they changed this time is the tempo (slightly), there are more strings, and the intro to the song is Michael himself, speaking on the phone in that unmistakable voice of his and dictating the tempo and the first words, then going into a beat boxing mini session.

    Best of Joy is also undoubtedly Michael, very Bee gees inspired, sounds more like a demo actually, sweet song, catchy, Michael sounds so relaxed.

    The other songs are - well, no need to discuss them here.
    You may of course decide to delete this post of mine and in that case it's okay, I just wanted to say that - I do find it strange that Michael is not credited as vocalist on songs where there's NO DOUBT he's singing.

    Love,

  5. Bonnie, I have to agree with Mimi here - I'm speechless as well. I wonder if the fans who can't wait to buy this album realise that at best they are getting one song recorded by Michael, a duet with Akon and pretty much the rest have either been written or co-written or produced or co-produced by Michael and if you're lucky maybe a few background vocals here or there. That's it? You can't have a Michael Jackson album without his beautiful voice and passion on it.

    The Breaking News credits are the ones that shocked me. Sony was insistent it was authentic Michael Jackson singing and now this revelation. Great work Bonnie.

    Sony wants to sell this album. They've coughed up serious dollars to get it in the stores. They're looking for paydirt. Sheesh, there are going to be so many disappointed buyers. Michael would be embarrassed.

    I have a question. What's being released in the future? They've signed up for a lot of music with the estate. What's going to be dished up? I'm upset because they are bastardising Michael's name, really they are. Non-fans especially would have expectations of hearing Michael Jackson and rightfully so. Fans may see it for what it really is - gross profiteering and exploitation - I'm more concerned about those who simply enjoyed and appreciated Michael's music. I think they will simply think that Michael lost his magic and not bother to look at the credits.

    My concern is that Michael copped so much criticism during the last decade from the media. They said he was washed up, it was over etc. Now this excuse for an album will confirm a lot of those accusations because it's not Michael's music but his reputation carries the burden for it.

    ReplyDelete
  6. Bonnie, thank you for bringing this up on your blog. They're streaming the album on the website in hopes of being able to entice people to pre-order it. However, I know I'll be doing no such thing because at least three of the songs are definitely not Michael. I'm a singer, and I spend my time listening to people's voices and gleaning technical vocal information from them, and it's hard to truly fake another's voice.
    I believe, though, I know who the fake voice is done by. Go onto Youtube and type in "Jason Malachi" and see what you come up with. That is the exact same voice they'd used for the three tracks which were obviously not Michael.
    If you can, get someone to help you analyze the waveforms for all the vocals on the album with that of Michael's known work, every second. I can guarantee that some of the tracks will definitely not match his voice.
    Thanks again, and keep up your work!

    >>> I know he's a sound engineer, but he also provided vocals in a couple of the songs with Mischke who also provided background vocals (Prince also provided whistling) and as you also stated, since vocals are the most prominent elements of a song, where are Michael's credits? Why wouldn't they put them on there?

    In regard to what is "without a doubt" Michael I do have doubts, only because seven of the songs on this album were in question by family/Rooney, but the only song mentioned by name was "Breaking News". Since Rooney, Taj J and "everyone in that room" were listening to these before they actually got out online (Randy J too? per his twitters?)I question every one that they don't list Michael for the vocals on. Yes, your post is okay :o) Honestly, I would not have known that "2000 Watts" was Michael except for one lil' part in the song where he is singing "3-D, 3-D, 3-D ee" and you can hear his "grind".

    >>> As far as this album goes, Michael left this music (at least three of these songs) with the Cascios and left them as is for a reason. No, he wouldn't want demos released as finished music, which is important that we get the word out about that, BUT with that said, why would he have just left them? He recorded them in 2007.

    What worries me about the songs listed on the copyright inventory (19 of them) is that NONE OF THEM are Michael as a claimant and the songwriter holding the copyright is someone we never heard of (at least he is not coming up in ANY online searches) plus the estate and all of them are e-files, which might explain the stolen hard drive out of Michael's house right after he "died". It is music and Michael is listed in authorship, but authorship on app is Bradley Buxer (who appears in credits on one of the "Michael" CD songs) "Hollywood" may very well have been one of those songs that appeared on the "Michael" CD as "Hollywood Tonight".

    It really gives the appearance that they are copyrighting unfinished material as they find it, posthumously processing it and calling it Michael's work. THEY might be satisfied with "bread crumbs" but I doubt fans are going to fall for this.

    Me personally, even if Michael left completed albums laying around? Sony is the LAST ENTITY Michael would want to work with and for THAT REASON I would not purchase as much as I love his voice.

    There is another reason Sony may be strapped as far what they have to put albums together . . . Remember Invincible? Much of that album was about what they were doing to him. What do you think Michael wrote and sang about AFTER that trial? This could be why Sony is short of material after they sifted through the crumbs Michael left behind.

  9. Bonnie, does this mean that Brad Buxer is the copyrightholder on these songs which are listed? I'm short on time now so can't go over it again; Brad Buxer worked with Michael quite a long time and, in fact, has filed a creditor's claim in his estate; I believe it's still pending. Don't know how relevant that claim is to copyright issues.

    About the Cascio tracks, Eddie C. said on Oprah's show (sorry) that Michael recorded 12 songs during 2007 in their basement "studio"; if three were on "Michael", then there are still 9 half baked (er, finished) songs out there. Michael took 4-5 years to finish Invicible, I believe. How could he have "finished" 12 songs in their basement in 3 months; baloney. I'm going to look this over when I get back; it's so interesting and provocative, thanks Bonnie.

    I don't know how you feel about that site, Bonnie, but the above link has some interesting info. especially if you follow the "also see...view topic" links that lead to the discussion on this:
    "It would appear Michael also made a script and storyboard for a comic it is called - Michael Jackson's - FATED"

    "The last nine mentioned songs are said to have been worked upon with songwriter Bradley Buxer just months before the entertainer's passing and have been transferred to Michael Jackson's Estate."

  11. Bonnie,
    If these credits (or lack of) are real, then it does not surprise me in the least. As I said before, demos and voicemail recordings by Michael put together by other people 'in the way Michael would have done it', is NOT a Michael Jackson album.

    ReplyDelete
  12. On "Michael"'s Album technicalities I am no specialist but for what Sony did to Michael in the past, I won't buy it. I would have loved to hear Michael's new music but not under the circumstances of controversy & greed surrounding Michael's unreleased songs after 06.25.2009 (MJ dead or alive)

  13. Bonnie,
    I just found this interview with Brad Buxer from Nov/Dec 2009:

    http://info.sonicretro.org/Brad_Buxer_Interview_(Black_%26_White,_November/December_2009)

    He says he last worked with Michael in 2006, although Michael did ask him to work on some projects in 2008, but Brad had to decline due to previous committments. Perhaps the songs you list above were copyrighted in 2009, but recorded 2006 or before?

    ReplyDelete
  14. OK, just to round out my last comment, here's a song by Jason Malachi, the Michael Jackson almost sound-alike.
    http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=MSKIjcuownw&feature=related

    I encourage you to compare the last clip to Breaking News.
    http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=-AQH4slc7tE&list=PLE837C99A199D12AE&index=16&playnext=2

    From my own point of view, Michael's voice is slightly darker and has more of an edge than Malachi's. If they really wanted to fake this, why didn't they do a better job? I'm not saying I wanted them to, but it's a very sloppy cover-up for pros, don't you think? Oh, I guess they figured since they couldn't much tell the difference that we couldn't either? How stupid do they suppose we are?

  15. @PrincessGlam - Thank you for the link on the Buxey interview. Nice find! No, if you look at the copyright records ALL OF THEM say "created" in 2009, and the copyright registered vary from december of 2009 through feb of 2010.

    Also Buxey is not the one claiming to have recorded songs with Michael, that was Durham Prince. Durham Prince (per this forum) said that he recorded "DOZENS OF SONGS" with Michael in 2009. Michael was only around until June 25 of that year and as June said above, Michael took almost five years to complete Invincible (Was he working on this while on tour with History?). I seriously doubt Michael would complete recording of "dozens" of songs in a six month period on top of fighting lawsuits, attending business meetings, dancer auditions and rehearsals for this is it and running (away from?) gang stalkers to Dr. Kleins office.

    These songs that Buxey registered with the U.S. Copyright office COULD HAVE BEEN originally written at different times, but why wait until after Michael is "dead" to register them all and why are they stated as "created" in 2009? Because 2009 is when they swiped the hard drive from his house?

    Also these ARE the same songs that Durham claimed he "recorded" with Michael in 2009 judging by the "creation" date. It's snow job!!!

    Thank you and I agree with you. 1st issue being, can it truly be declared Michael's work, with his blessing? 2nd issue being, Sony defrauded him and I would never give them a cent for ANYTHING because of that.

    "It would appear Michael also made a script and storyboard for a comic it is called - Michael Jackson's - FATED"

    "The last nine mentioned songs are said to have been worked upon with songwriter Bradley Buxer just months before the entertainer's passing and have been transferred to Michael Jackson's Estate."

    >>> That's a lot of good information there. I could find nothing on Googling Buxey. Wonder why? I'll see if I can do any searches based out of what you found here. So how did Buxey work with Michael on the last nine songs if Buxey admitted in another interview that he hadn't worked with Michael since 2006 and turned down working with him in 2008 due to other obligations?

    On the Hoax site, I don't discriminate myself, I just know the stigma that site has been saddled with, probably because of people like the TINI gangs, Jacobs/DeGosson/Faye people and who knows? The posts regarding these out of this world theories could very well be some of the same "plants" that tried to infiltrate this blog.

  17. June said - "Bonnie, does this mean that Brad Buxer is the copyrightholder on these songs which are listed? I'm short on time now so can't go over it again; Brad Buxer worked with Michael quite a long time and, in fact, has filed a creditor's claim in his estate; I believe it's still pending. Don't know how relevant that claim is to copyright issues.

    About the Cascio tracks, Eddie C. said on Oprah's show (sorry) that Michael recorded 12 songs during 2007 in their basement "studio"; if three were on "Michael", then there are still 9 half baked (er, finished) songs out there. Michael took 4-5 years to finish Invicible, I believe. How could he have "finished" 12 songs in their basement in 3 months; baloney. I'm going to look this over when I get back; it's so interesting and provocative, thanks Bonnie. "

    >>> I had to address your whole post . . . good points here: Yes, Bradley is the copyright claiment and rights holder on every one of those 19 songs listed under the Estate (Don't know if they are finished songs, but they are music with titles. Also the Brad 3.3.7. MJ sounds exactly like what I thought it was, tracks of music on a computer hard drive). I know about the creditor's claim against the estate, but it is not something I had time to follow up on. Many people working with Michael for "years" were not his friends. I keep that in mind when I see things like this.

    I agree with you wholeheartedly on the three months/12 songs ratio. Even more staggering is the "dozens of songs recorded"/6 months ratio Durham is claiming.

    WOW! What a Revelation! I had NO IDEA

    Michael was NOT on this album EXCEPT for 1 Song!

    Just goes to show you how LOW Sony will go!

    All I got to say is:

    Whether Michael is singing or not, I WOULD

    NOT BUY ANY MUSIC FROM SONY if they were

    the ONLY Music Industry in the world!!!!

    SONY IS SICK!!!!!!

    I believe, though, I know who the fake voice is done by. Go onto Youtube and type in "Jason Malachi" and see what you come up with. That is the exact same voice they'd used for the three tracks which were obviously not Michael."

    Thank you so much for this info. I haven't been inside a recording studio (and that was only once) since I was 17, so much of the new and improved stuff has been an education to say the least. If it weren't for reading "gearslutz.com" I wouldn't even know half the lingo used.

    Aside from that everything I have ever done has been by ear so it helps to have someone else WITH that technical experience verify what I BELIEVE I am hearing. I love Michael's voice, but I love Michael more and what they did to him? I will not ever finance.

    You said - "If you can, get someone to help you analyze the waveforms for all the vocals on the album with that of Michael's known work, every second."

  22. @Josie - Calmness girl! Don't burst a blood vessel! He was on other songs on this album, how many is in question. He is not credited in lead vocals or background vocals in some and only background vocals in others which signified uncompleted works. gracesong's post above says three songs are definitely not him and others questionable. On ear only, I recognize Michael on Kravitz's song and "Hold my Hand" which was a previous release AS WAS "The Way you Love Me" (had not been released as of the posting update above on the blog, of Michael naming his unreleased songs).

    I noticed how quiet Cascio was on the Oprah Interview. Something was bothering him.

    Thank you so much for posting those. I agree with you. I listened to each clip three times and It's like meat without salt the difference. Also listen to how he pronounces "Michael Jackson" with hard pronounciation on the " -chael" almost like he's pronouncing it "coal". Michael has a (still, okay, I know it's present tense) an accent that under enunciates some words. The grit in his voice when he "digs" down into the notes is just unmatched by anyone . . . NOBODY sounds like that.

    This was valuable comparison Grace, thank you.

  24. Grace do you have links to other . . . nevermind, I will find them but in listening to the Breaking News song it strikes me how "heartless" this song seems to be. There is no life in it. Whoever Jason Malachi is and whoever MIXED THIS . . . you should be embarrassed!

  26. Could unfinished songs be finished just adding instrument instead of adding voice to the original songs? The reason I ask is why Sony has to add others voice that are not Michael faking it to be one if the songs can be completed without adding voice.

    There are always posthumous albums released of the artist who are deceased. Therefore, is this a normal practice or technique music industries use faking deceased artists’ voice on their unfinished songs to finish them? If not, why for Michael?

    Bonnie – I listened both the original “Hold My Hand” and the one you posted over and over. On the original one there is no “yeah, yeah” that breaks the flow. It’s definitely added up and it’s not Michael’s voice. I prefer the original version. It’s clear and crisp. That’s why I ask the question above since I don’t understand the purpose of messing up the original cut with voice that doesn’t match. I wish they left the original one as is for “Hold My Hand.”

    >>> Yes, sure you could. I am unsure why they are adding rather notable voices. The songs are rather messy and MO they really butchered "Hold My Hand" I was starting to sing along (doing my harmony thing) and I pulled back and said, "What the???" They cluttered the song!

    A theory? Sony is doing this on purpose. Trying to anger someone.

  29. Bonnie – thank you for letting me know that unfinished songs can be finished without adding others voices. In that premise, Sony purposely and vindictively continuing their abuse as they have been doing to Michael always.

    This is the company that never rest from hurting Michael that fans want to support and increase their wealth by purchasing the album, and saying “we are doing it for his children.” I said baloney.

    You are supporting the most devious company either the knowledge you have about Michael and what this company is doing to him still today are shallow or you don’t care. Which one is true? You pick.

  31. Bonnie said "Sony defrauded him and I would never give them a cent for ANYTHING because of that."

    GOOD ! I read several European articles also disputing the "Michael" Album. An Austrian one below:
    http://www.oe24.at/kultur/Jackson-CD-als-Mogelpackung/12171214

    Only partially translated, it basically says :

    1. "Am 10. Dezember erscheint die CD "Michael". Jacko hört man da aber kaum".
    Translation : On Dec. 10 the "Michal" CD will be published. But from Jackso himself (Grr... why "Jacko"?..that's me) one hardly hears any.

    2. "Das Material soll für zehn Alben reichen, doch schon die erste, zehn Songs starke CD Michael zeigt große Schwächen."
    Translation : The whole material should reach for 10 Albums but the 1st Album already shows big weaknesses"

    3. "Die erste Single Hold My Hand ist ein Akon-Song. The Way You Love Me wurde schon 2004 veröffentlicht, und Breaking News erweist sich als billige Sound-Kollage rund um die vielen Jackson-Aufreger.
    Translation:
    The 1st Single "Hold my Hand" is an Akon-Song. "The Way You Love Me" was already displayed in 2004 & "Breaking News" proves itself as a cheap Sound-collage made around by the many Jackson-enablers.

    So another witness article shwoing that Sony should not take Michael's public for dupes.

  32. Bonnie "1st issue being, can it truly be declared Michael's work, with his blessing?"

    OF COURSE NOT ... that work is only a "Sony garbage soup" salted with a "pinch" of real Michael sold as a 100% Michael brand product so if fans get disappointed with the "soup", for Sony it would be Michael's fault & lack of appeal, not theirs.

  33. Hi Bonnie, what do you make of Sony streaming the album on MichaelJackson.com? I mean it's going to be downloaded everywhere. This has thrown me for a loop to be honest. My paydirt theory just went out the window.

    What's their gameplan? I'm trying to come up with logical motives here but am just confused.

  34. Mimi said - "thank you for letting me know that unfinished songs can be finished without adding others voices. In that premise, Sony purposely and vindictively continuing their abuse as they have been doing to Michael always."

    This is why I believe Sony's motivation for putting out this garbage (and this is SONY'S GARBAGE not Akon's or Kravitz. Sony's paid music technicians constructed this monstrosity) has less to do with art and more to do with vengence.

    >>> Well? I've suggested this before, but perhaps Sony's main prerogative is not to make big money off this release, but to get as much of it out there as possible to anger someone into taking some kind of action.

    I said before that Sony suspects he is alive. If they do, then what they are doing right now would make perfect sense.

  36. Dear Bonnie,

    The hasty Sony merchandizing reminds the correlation : Mozart/Salieri & Michael/Sony as I also remembered & searched a portion of this past link of yours :

    "Michael & Mozart-what did they have in common?"
    http://michaelsguardian.blogspot.com/2010/03/march-28-2010-michael-and-his-dad-and.html

    when you wrote :"I almost feel that if Sony succeeds in contributing to Michael’s death while building an empire on his bones, we will have failed him."

    So true ... or maybe with their malpractice & greed, Sony may also fail building money on Michael's bones (or alive?) if the fans don't buy the Sony new CDs anymore. I love that dream!

    Those unfinished Songs of Michael should have been handed to MJ3 upon their majority or later so they could have decided how to use them, not Sony. If John Lennon sells 30 years later, why not Michael Jackson in 10 or 30 years ?

    ReplyDelete
  37. Bonnie,

    Okay. I follow you up to where you say Sony is trying to smoke Michael out of hiding.

    But we all know Michael is not going to come out of hiding. He didn't plan his FAKE death for nothing.

    But what happens now?

    If Murray does NOT go to trial, will Michael come out and what about his kids?

    Do you think maybe they have some kind of CODE where they can talk to eachother?

    If Murray goes to trial, then I think Murray is in on the Fake Death. And the Trial will probably be a Rigged One.

    Meaning- Murray will be for Not Guilty on All Counts and Free to go. Because after all, Michael is Alive and Murray knows it.

    But why hasn't Sony and the bad guys tried to kill Murray?

    Did Murray Double-Cross the bad guys?

    I'm just trying to figure out the sceanario.

    Any ideas Bonnie?

  39. @LineCH - Wow! You know your blog is getting too big when someone does a search and finds and entry you had forgotten about!

    Michael Jackson will most definitely sell 10-20-30+ years from now, REGARDLESS of what Sony does. I can't believe a corporation can be so childish! Seriously, these games? You expect this kind of belligerent foot stomping and "double-dog-dare" stuff from seven year olds or at the worst, gang-stalker Malik-Jacobs types, but a corporation? That's like swiping the chess board because your opponent got you in a check-mate. And then when he missed hitting you with the chess pieces he throws the board at you, then tips the table . . . then calls your mother fat, I mean come-on!!! This is what Sony is doing!

    I never thought I would hear myself say this after the appeal Michael brought to childhood innocence, but Sony needs to grow up.

    >>> Being peppered with questions I don't know the answer to is probably not going to help you Josie. I don't know how this is all going to play out. I can only tell you what I see and what comes out in research as it happens and as I find it. I can formulate some of the pictures in my head but prophesying is not my talent. I can tell you what it looks like is going on but I don't know anything beyond that.

    Murray? I don't know. Too close to the case. If he was killed, he is in direct association with Michael and they can't hide that. Not like they can hide behind Chasen and Ayers and the Wilborns. The others were labled as suicide (as was this poor gunman who was probably also a cover hit).

    I do not nor will I speculate on what is going on with Michael's children in this subject. I can talk about how cute they are, how smart they are but nothing in regard to him being alive. Safety first.

    Yes, and it also ties in with my recent blog about corporate bullying and Michael. I have friends who have been on the receiving end of corporate bullying, and after they recovered from the shock that such tactics are used, they tried to ignore it, then tried to fight it, but in the end had to remove themselves from the situation :-).

  46. There was a youtube user who posted some of MJ's unreleased songs, rare and severalb-sides 3 years ago (before MJ's death). I can't find them now. Behind the Mask was one of them. It did not make the Thriller album and instead it was "sold" to Eric Clapton. Not sure about the arrangements made by Sony from the song writers, Mosdell (lyrics) and Sakamoto of YMO (music). It's a shitey song anyways. Not to disrespect Chris Mosdell but it was not meant to have lyrics.

    ReplyDelete
  47. AnaPassion - Thank you! Yes, I did find the original with both Michael and Akon that was NOT messed up by Sony.

    Christopherm - I saw a couple of them on Youtube and I think Clapton was one of them. What was odd was the "creation" date on some of the ones listed under the estate that were old song lyrics . . . all 2009 dates. But if you go under Michael Jackson or Michael Joe Jackson for those copyrights you see some of them there with the original creation dates, some as LYRICS and some as music.
