    Jacksons Legacy book

    The Jacksons Legacy book looks like a good one to buy.

    There's a lot more photos than stories in it. I flicked through it in the shop, but I still came away with one feeling.

    It'll always be incomplete because Michael Jackson's words in conversation with his brothers cannot be read.

    It would have been something if the brothers had got together for this back in 2001. Their shortlived reunion was the perfect time to do so.

    Around that time and just before, a lot of Jacksons tracks were being sampled.

    Especially CYFI.

    Anyone here have it?
    "Because we do not know when we will die, we get to think of life as an inexhaustible well. Yet everything happens a certain number of times, and a very small number, really. How many more times will you remember a certain afternoon of your childhood, some afternoon that is so deeply a part of your being that you can't even concieve of your life without it? Perhaps four or five times more. Perhaps not even that. How many times will you watch the full moon rise? Perhaps twenty. And yet it all seems limitless." - Brandon Lee

    I haven't had a proper look yet through the copy that my Mum gave me (I had such 'Jacksons fatigue' for a while so I'm a little out of the loop, lol), but it does look very good. It's nice to see the Victory-related content in there as well, like rare comments from the brothers about how "State of Shock" and "Torture" came about.

    I STILL WANT MY JACKSONS RARITIES BOX SET ONE DAY DAMN IT - seriously, has there even been a single official Jacksons compilation release or similar since 2009?? What's going on? Lol

    ^Next year will markt the J5's 50th Anniversary. Most liklely we'll get some new tunes from Motown/Universal. And if the Estate as well as the guys at Sony/Epic aren't living under a rock then they won't miss the opportunity to get a part of the cake.

    Soz, I only just noticed this. I don't think you did!

    When I came up with my track listing for a Jacksons (post-'75 era) set, it was admittedly a bit Jermaine-heavy...
