マイケル・ジャクソンによってレコーディングされたとされる9曲の未発表曲が収録され物議を醸しているCDが、ニューヨークのオークション・ハウス「Gotta Have Rock and Roll」でオークションにかけられる。



1. Monster
2. Breaking News
3. Stay
4. Keep Your Head Up
5. Everything’s Just Fine
6. Black Widow
7. Burn Tonight
8. All I Need
9. Water
10. Let Me Fall in Love
11. Ready to Win
12. Soldier Boy

「Monster」、「Breaking News」、「Keep Your Head Up」は2009年のマイケルの死去後初めて発売された2010年のアルバム「Michael」に収録されている。これらの楽曲のリリースはファンやマイケルと直接仕事をしたことのある人物らからの大きな注目を集め、その結果マイケルによるレコーディングではないとの主張がなされた。これらの曲には、マイケルが長年の友人であるフランク・カシオ、エディ・カシオの家に滞在中にレコーディングされたという裏話がある。現在では不名誉な「カシオ・トラック」として知られ、真贋をめぐり多くの論争がなされている。



このCDはマイケルが亡くなった時点では彼の所有物であり、ペンで「Bible」と書かれているがブランクCDのように見えるという。この他のマイケル・ジャクソン関連の出品には、手描きの自画像、衣服、「個人所有のテディ・ベア」、子供たちから贈られた「Best Daddy in the World」のオスカー像などがある。


■“Unreleased Songs” Go Up For Auction

A controversial CD containing nine unheard songs apparently recorded by Michael Jackson will be auctioned off by New York auction house ‘Gotta Have Rock and Roll’ later this month.

However, this latest auction of Michael’s personal possessions will once again raise the argument that has now been taking place for almost seven years…do the vocals actually belong to Michael?

The tracklist is as follows:

1. Monster
2. Breaking News
3. Stay
4. Keep Your Head Up
5. Everything’s Just Fine
6. Black Widow
7. Burn Tonight
8. All I Need
9. Water
10. Let Me Fall in Love
11. Ready to Win
12. Soldier Boy

‘Monster,’ ‘Breaking News’ and ‘Keep Your Head Up’ were all released on the 2010 album ‘Michael,’ the first posthumous album to be released since he died in 2009. The release came under a lot of scrutiny from fans and those who had previously worked directly with Michael, claiming the tracks were not recorded by him. The story behind all of the above songs is that they were recorded whilst Michael was staying at long time friends Frank and Eddie Cascio’s house. Now infamously known as “the Cascio tracks” many dispute their legitimacy.

Michael Jackson’s Estate at the time said they did extensive investigation into the tracks and believe the vocals to belong to Michael. However, in 2014, just before the release of the ‘Xscape’ album, they confirmed that due to the controversy they will never release anymore of the Cascio tracks. To add insult to injury, the majority of the above tracks have also been available on the Internet for a long time. Many can be easily found on YouTube.

The auction house will start bidding for the CD at $50,000 and expect it to potentially reach $1 million. However with all the controversy surrounding the tracks, the fact many are already available online and that the auction winner will not own rights to the music, so the songs cannot be distributed, one has to ask to why anyone would spend so much on these tracks that are potentially worthless fakes.

The CD is claimed to have been in Michael’s possession when he passed away and it appears as a blank CD with the word “Bible” written in pen on it. Other Michael Jackson items up for auction include hand-drawn self-portraits, clothing, his “personally owned teddy bear” and a “Best Daddy in the World” Oscar statuette given by his children.

■Halloween Special Coming This Fall

Michael Jackson’s Estate has teamed up with CBS to produce a new animated special for which his extensive discography will serve as the soundtrack.

Titled ‘Michael Jackson’s Halloween’, the hour-long animation will follow Vincent and Victoria, who meet on Halloween and find themselves, along with Ichabod the dog, at a mysterious hotel located at 777 Jackson Street called This Place Hotel. Once inside, Vincent and Victoria go on an unexpected, magical adventure of personal discovery, culminating in a spectacular dance finale featuring an animated Michael.

Some of the roles will be voiced by Christine Baranski, Alan Cumming, Jim Parsons, Lucy Liu, George Eads and Brad Garrett.

Optimum Productions created the special and will produce, with animation production by Hammerhead. John Branca and John McClain, co-executors of the Estate of Michael Jackson, will exec produce. Daniel Chuba will serve as producer, and Mark A.Z. Dippé is attached to direct.

The special will air sometime this Fall, presumably around Halloween. This will also coincide with the 35th anniversary of Michael’s groundbreaking album ‘Thriller.’
