  Gustavus Concert Tapes
Posted by: Cindy M - 07-05-2019, 12:17 PM - Forum: Michael Discussion - Replies (6)

The Gustavus recording engineer will be sending me all his DAT tapes of the concerts he recorded. Previoussly he had given me mix CDs or the concerts with only the songs. 

He says "All The recordings I have are DATs. My DAT player is failing but the last time I played the tapes they were deteriorating so good to have someone work on them and preserve those wonderful concert performances."

Unfortunately I gave back Michael's DAT machine to the family and used units are pricey on eBay. I couldn't find any for rent ion the Twin Cities. 

The tapes should be baked first if they're deteriorating. The place I go to for baking and conversion, TwoSquares, they don't charge for the baking if you pay for any conversion. Unfortunately conversion is $20 a tape. I don't know how many tapes I'll be getting and if it's a large amount if TwoSquares will give me any price break. In any case, I may have to ask for donations as I'm without funds.

When I get the tapes, I will add another posting. Just wanted to let you know, we might have some great concerts to listen to soon!

  early On the Road demo - YT Audio
Posted by: Cindy M - 07-04-2019, 09:53 AM - Forum: MJ YouTube - No Replies

Song 2 from early demo. In Your Eyes was added a couple weeks ago, See You Soon will be coming later today. 

Happy 4th - I couldn't think of any suitable songs MJ sang. Drop the Big One?

Written by Carl Franzen
Slightly different lyrics and melody than the recorded version.

https://youtu.be/iPXAHewty4c

Back in 1958, we drove an old V-8
And when it turned a hundred thou
We pushed it a mile

We didn't know who we were, we didn't know what we did
We were just on the road

Heading south from Canada
On a graveled road a mile from Montana
Then my daddy read the sign
That took us in the wrong direction

We didn't know who we were, we didn't know what we did
We were just on the road

I asked my daddy where are we going
He just said we're following our nose
So I looked out the window
And dreamed I was a cowboy

We didn't know who we were, we didn't know what we did
La La...

I met a girl in a truck cafe
I fell in love almost right away
But the Mercury was ready to go
And I had to leave her

Go home, said the man in the moon, go home
Go home, said the man in the moon, go home
Because it's getting sorta late, and I'll soon put out my light
So go home, said the man in the moon, go home

We didn't know who we were, we didn't know what we did
We were just on the road

We didn't know who we were, we didn't know what we did
La la...
We were just a-moving on the road

Cindy, while trying to view the various versions of "The Honey Wind Blows", marvelous tune, I noticed the link to 'Soundcheck Red Wing, MN..." sent me to the 'Soundcheck Hopkins Center..." youtube site. Is it the same for you there or is it just my machine?

  The Nashville Now 1987 video....
Posted by: retnavycpo - 06-22-2019, 08:04 PM - Forum: Michael Discussion - No Replies

I thoroughly enjoyed watching the 1987 Nashville Now video!  I am not a big fan of country western music, but watching/listening to Michael singing "What Your Love Does To Me" was so awesome!  I have the "Wings" cd, but hadn't listened to it in a long time, and forgot that song was even on it.  So, so great, watching him play that guitar with such unmatched talent.  And his voice?  There is, and never be anyone like Michael again.  Wonderful musician and singer.  I miss being able to talk to him.  Thank you Cindy.  Peter

  MJ Promo Kits
Posted by: Cindy M - 06-19-2019, 04:27 PM - Forum: Michael Discussion - Replies (2)

I have these 1998 promo kits of Michael's I used to send out for him back when I was his unpaid secretary.  Wink 

And I'm ready to offer them in the online store. They're a bit elaborate and include an 8x10 glossy and a Then & Now CD, though I'd substitute Departure upon request. I'd like suggestions of what the price should be.
