Someone requested chords from MJ's earlier music, like from For All You Mad Musicians. Dale has supplied us with "Walk Me Round Your Garden."

  Song request?

Apologies if this is inappropriate--my father in law recently passed and had requested two songs played at his funeral: Rich Like Me and Mr. Sawyer/Mr. Finn. I'm having a dickens of a time finding them anywhere; would anyone be able to point me in the right direction?

Weird story. This cassette has been on a shelf for months. Had no idea what was on it. Don't know who gave it to me but it's from around May 1983. Five songs:

My Old Yellow Car, Old Fashioned Love, People Still Fall in Love, Gimmie That Wine, California is a Mental State

  Lifetime Guarantee uploads YT audio
Posted by: Cindy M - 03-28-2020, 08:11 PM - Forum: MJ YouTube - Replies (2)

Yesterday and today the following were uploaded. These songs were recorded for Lifetime Guarantee but were omitted.

One Step Ahead of the Bad News
This was given to me by MJ in 1992 on a cassette and went through a couple conversions and the pitch was off.

Love You Back
This one and the next were on a cassette in July 1982 when MJ came visiting and I dubbed it to reel-to-reel which is what i converted it from yesterday. 

One Step Ahead of the Bad News
So an earlier version than the first.

I also have versions from July 1982 of those songs along with Temptation and Q.T. with no vocals. Also, Temptation and three versions of Q.T. with vocals. I've never listened to all of them closely to see if I could tell any differences. 

I don't know if all of these were before they were mixed but they could be since One Step Ahead of the Bad News was.

Lifetime Guarantee was MJ's least favorite album. Fans either seem to love it or not like it so much...
Someone wrote on the message board:
"Lifetime Guarantee was produced by Ray Bardani and Michael Colina--who also produced many of Michael Franks' albums. MJ sought them out as producers because he really liked the way Franks' albums sounded. I only spent time with MJ at length over one lunch and we talked about LG. It really had some great moments with David Sanborn's great sax solo on "I'm Gone" and the MJ's great vocals throughout--I loved "Who's That Look In Your Eye" as well...lots of great moments but he said it was sort of an experiment that as a whole failed musically."
