  If Wishes were Horses YouTube song
Posted by: Cindy M - 04-28-2019, 08:13 PM - Forum: MJ YouTube - No Replies

Another song from the Paul and Amy tape.

"If Wishes were Horses"

The last recording of this song I have is from 1984. So 1968 to 1984...

Songwriter: Mike Settle. Kenny Rogers & 1st Edition recorded it.

Photo Original tape of Rooty Toot Toot!
Posted by: Cindy M - 04-22-2019, 09:48 PM - Forum: Michael Discussion - Replies (8)

Received in the mail today! Rooty Toot Toot! As I posted on Facebook:
Original tape of Rooty Toot Toot - several versions. Unfortunately it's 16 track format which my machine won't play and even the conversion service I've dealt with in the past isn't sure they can either. Comments? Advice?

  Sticky Summer Weather - youtube song
Posted by: Cindy M - 04-22-2019, 08:34 PM - Forum: MJ YouTube - No Replies

This was the last song on the tape (but not the last I'll add to YouTube) and it got cut off. Sticky Summer Weather written by John Denver. I'm rethinking the date of this tape. Crow said it was probably recorded right after he got back from Spain but it would be more logical that it was recorded when MJ was in Denver, Boise & Johnson or after. Denver didn't record this song until 1970 so MJ would have had to learn it from him before that.

  You’re Discovering I’m Not What I Seem
Posted by: Cindy M - 03-31-2019, 12:46 AM - Forum: MJ YouTube - No Replies

Another song from the reel to reel tape with Amy and Paul.

"You’re Discovering I’m Not What I Seem"

This is the title written on the song list but I can't find it online. Michael sings just one verse and chorus. Anyone recognize this song? My fav off this tape.

  Brown-Eyed Woman YouTube song
Posted by: Cindy M - 03-26-2019, 03:20 PM - Forum: MJ YouTube - No Replies

This is the first upload from a reel-to-reel tape of MJ solos, one duet with Amy Johnson (Crow) and a couple solos by Crow with brother Paul. Around 1968. Michael says on the tape that it's written by Bill Medley of the Righteous Brothers but it was actually written by Barry Mann & Cynthia Weil but was a hit for Medley in 1968. This is the only reason I'm guessing this recording was made that year. I've listened to clips of Medley and others who covered this song and it's very different than MJ's cover. He's got a great voice on this and it's one of my favorites on this tape.

  New Article with Audio!
Posted by: Cindy M - 03-17-2019, 12:33 PM - Forum: mjblue.com Updates - Replies (3)

This is a 1975 interview for Little Bit, a high-school magazine in Mpls-St.Paul. 

It includes the actual recorded interview between the authors and MJ! 

The article itself has his history, from childhood to living in Maine and being a waiter to studying guitar in Spain.

https://mjblue.com/blittlebit.html

The audio is a large file - might take a while to load or download. Let me know if you have problems - I could add it to YouTube if need be.
