Blood On The Dance Floor (Blue Embossed) Maxi-Single CoverRecently Added To My Collection. 17-10-'18
Blood On The Dance Floor (Blue Embossed) [Maxi-Single]

'Blood On The Dance Floor' is released as the first single from Michael's remix album, 'Blood On The Dance Floor - HIStory In The Mix' on April 22nd, 1997 in the USA through Epic Records. Jackson and Teddy Riley created the track in time for the 1991 release of 'Dangerous'. However, it did not appear on that record and was minimally altered before commercial release in April 1997.

The song is about a predatory woman by the name of Susie, who seduces Jackson before plotting to stab him with a knife. The composition explores a variety of genres ranging from rock to funk and Hi-NRG.

The maxi-single picture sleeve has a blue MJJ feet logo and the vinyl contains 2 remixes of 'Blood On The Dance Floor' made by Tony Moran and Fire Island also 2 remixes of 'Dangerous' made by Roger Sanchez.

There is a mistake on the maxi-single, on the back side of the sleeve and on the vinyl you can read that the first track takes 7:00 long but the song actually takes on the vinyl 8:04.

My (blue embossed) maxi-single is printed in Holland with the series number: 664462 0.

Track list:

1. Blood On The Dance Floor (TM's O-Positive Dub) - 8:04
2. Blood On The Dance Floor (Fire Island Dub) - 8:50

Michael Jackson: La Totale (Les 263 Chansons Et 41 Clips Expliqués) Book Is Released. 10-10-'18

Michael Jackson: La Totale (Les 263 Chansons Et 41 Clips Expliqués) Book CoverA brand new book called 'Michael Jackson: La Totale (Les 263 Chansons Et 41 Clips Expliqués)' will be released in France on October 10.

From the first hits with the Jackson 5 to the posthumous songs, it took no less than 608 pages to decipher, analyze and explain all the songs of Michael Jackson and his videos that upset the music industry of the time and inspired the following generations.

After a dazzling career in the Jackson 5 boy band, Michael Jackson built his solo career step by step. In the early 1980's, 'Thriller' became the best-selling album of all time. The Michael Jackson phenomenon will not stop anymore. Singer and dancer of genius, he is the symbol of an assumed and successful musical mixing that makes it possible to break down certain racial barriers. Very often forgotten or too rarely valued, the creative process of Michael Jackson is as fascinating as his works. Songs, short films, duets with other artists or his involvement in film projects reflect his taste for musical and scenic challenges, and his ability to renew himself.

Supported by countless testimonials from collaborators of the star, Michael Jackson, 'La Totale' unveils the secrets of manufacturing, long kept in silence, music and images that are part of the pantheon of pop music.

Publisher: E/P/A
Author: Richard Lecocq & François Allard
Pages: 608

'They Would Not Let Them Inside': Michael's Brother Jackie Claims Their Father Intervened After A Hotel Banned Aboriginal Fans From Meeting The Jackson 5 During Their Australian Tour In The 1970's. 10-10-'18

Jackie JacksonMore than 30 years ago, The Jackson 5 performed to over two million Australian fans as the first black musicians to tour the country nationally.

But while the band, including the late Michael Jackson, received a warm welcome Down Under, founding member Jackie Jackson has recalled a rather confronting incident from the group's visit to Sydney in July 1973.

The 67-year-old told Daily Mail Australia that his late father Joseph Jackson, who was also the band's manager, stood up for Aboriginal fans who were allegedly banned from interacting with the group during their stay.

The Jackson 5, now known as the Jacksons, are an American family band. Formed in 1964, the founding members were elder brothers Jackie, Tito and Jermaine; younger brothers Marlon and Michael joined soon after.

While staying at a hotel in Sydney during their Australian tour, Jackie claimed that the establishment banned Aboriginal fans from meeting the group.

Other fans were apparently allowed entry, however.

He told Daily Mail Australia it was his father Joseph's bold ultimatum that convinced the hotel to reconsider its supposed policy.

Jackie recalled: 'There was a lot of people and a lot of Aboriginal people outside of the hotel and the hotel would not let them inside. My father at the time – he's passed away now -said if they didn't let them inside there'd be no Jackson concert.

'I remember it being like pandemonium. They wanted to see us too and the hotel wouldn't let them in, but my father said, "If you don't let these Aboriginal kids in, the Jacksons are not going on stage".'

'So they let them inside, I remember the whole thing,' he concluded.

As the group returns in 2019 for a national tour, Jackie insisted 'Australia has always been very supportive of the group' over the years and is looking forward to arriving.

The Australian tour, the group's first in five years, will also coincide with the Jacksons' appearance alongside The Village People, Pointer Sisters, Sister Sledge, and Kool & The Gang at The Sydney Summer Series festival in January 2019.

Reflecting on his late brother Michael, who died in 2009 of a cardiac arrest, Jackie said the band continues to pay tribute to him on stage at every concert.

'We sing some of his songs and there's a lot of ballads that we sing. The audience usually cries when they see the pictures go up on the big stage monitor,' he said.

'We're just trying to keep the legacy going. That's what he would want us to do. We're happy to keep his name in the spotlight because he was a special person and people loved him around the world.

'It's a really exciting moment that we get to pay tribute to our brother on stage... any given moment we knew exactly where he would be on the stage – he was always giving 110 per cent.'

Michael was involved in the original Jackson 5 up until 1983 when he began to focus on his successful career as a solo artist.

When Jackie admitted to being protective of his younger brothers while the band toured as a five-piece in the '70s and '80s, he said his siblings were always well behaved as they travelled the world.

'They never got in trouble. They just wanted to be the best they could be on stage, record records and make people happy,' he said.

Jackie added that, unlike many pop stars of today, the band never partied after their performances.

'We were too young to go to nightclubs, so we would end the show, go to the hotel, talk a little bit about the concert, and then we'd go to bed, because it was a business,' he explained.

The Jacksons Tour Dates:
Saturday 12 January - the Domain, Sydney
Sunday 13 January - Sandstone Point Hotel, Brisbane
Tuesday 15 January - Gold Coast Convention Centre, Gold Coast
Wednesday 16 January - Sidney Myer Music Bowl - Melbourne
Friday 18 January - AEC, Adelaide
Saturday 19 January - Sandalford Winery, Perth

Michael JacksonNew Music Coming From King Of Pop?!? 07-10-'18

Michael Jackson fans could soon be moonwalking to a whole lotta new songs ... 'cause the late singer's estate is looking to slap a fresh logo over tons of merchandise, and it could be the prequel to a possible release of new tunes!!!

According to docs obtained by TMZ ... Michael's merchandise firm, Triumph International, recently filed paperwork to lock up the rights to a newly designed logo -- an interlocking MJ with a crown on top -- so they can splash it over phone accessories, merchandise, CD cases and ... music recordings!

It's got us thinking ... is the King Of Pop's estate preparing to open MJ's music vault? Because that would be so, so awesome!

MJ's 60th birthday just passed and we know he's got loads of unreleased songs ... so, 60th anniversary release anyone?
