In news that shocked the recording industry today, a recording was discovered by someone cleaning out the estate of the late pop star. When it was played back, an amazed clean up crew heard Michael Jackson's voice from about ten years ago, it has now been determined.
Sony State Music Entertainment, which was in an early dispute with Jackson, got to hear the Jackson's songs and agreed that these were recorded at the peak of Jackson's career.
"I think they were recorded right after his last major tour, the "Bad Tour", but there's just Michael singing on it", stated Sony State rep Alan Steward.
Two big mysteries here!
#1 Why were these songs never mentioned by Michael to his fans?
Was he saving them for the last tour he was planning before his sudden death?
#2 The typed notes by the recording stated "Songs written by Robert Beard and Michael Jackson."
So who is Robert Beard? We have asked around all the music people and no one knows a Robert Beard.
Was 'Robert Beard' an alias? If so, why hasn't he shown up to claim profits when this is settled and released.
Back to Alan Steward of Sony State.
"I think Michael got these ready on that Bad Tour with whoever Robert Beard may be, and when the fight over his recordings began after the Bad Tour, he put them back for later. It could even be that this Robert Beard person met Jackson on the tour and they worked these out."
Steward stated that they would love to have these.
"You can improvise the background singers and music and these would sound great. I was blown away by them. Not a bad one there."
Too bad that this will be held up for a good while. For one thing, who's are they? Who is Robert Beard?
The find would have been great awhile back when it was the one year anniversary of Jackson's death.
Speaking of which, there is still no wax figure of Michael Jackson that looks like anything, even the one in the famous museums in London and in New York.
What was the problem there? Well, according to one worker, the artists needed a life-like figure to go by.
