EXCLUSIVE! 2 NEW JACKSON COLLECTIONS ROCK THE MUSIC WORLD!

October 7, 2009

Michael Jackson cat1971

Three weeks ago my friend New Media Joe (Klein), broke the story that our friend Russ Terrana, former chief engineer of Motown records, was in the studio remixing 11 newly discovered Jackson five tracks, recorded at the time as “I Want You Back”, but never released.

Terrana, one of the unsung heroes of the Motown Hit Making machine, who has 89 number one records he mixed or engineered under his belt, would probably have made it into the Guinness Book Of World records, if such a category existed.

I wouldn’t be surprised if Russ, after all these years, is suddenly thrust into the spotlight and “forced” to go back into the studio and turn more hit tracks into classics!

New Media Joe, adds, “I am so excited for Russ that he was chosen to mix these newly-unearthed vintage Jackson 5 tracks for this historic project. Besides being a close friend for decades and a really great guy, he’s one of the most talented and gifted engineers in the history of pop music and deserves all the recognition and respect worthy of a living legend. I was happy to break the story about the new Jackson 5 album, and thrilled to be the first to interview Russ about it since he finished mixing the tracks about ten days ago . Maybe this will lead to a rebirth of his brilliant career as a recording engineer. That would be great. He really is the best of the best!”

“During the interview, I asked Russ if he had been contacted recently by anyone from the Jackson family. I had to laugh when Russ told me that Jermaine Jackson recently requested that Russ add him as a friend on Facebook! You heard it here first!”

To listen to Russ’ mix of “THAT’S HOW LOVE IS,” the first single from the new Jackson 5 album:

As excited as I am as a fan to hear the New “Old” Jackson Five cuts, I’m even more excited to hear that as a songwriter I’m in the JACKSON FIVE ULTIMATE CHRISTMAS ALBUM coming out next week, on October 13, with a song I co-wrote with George Clinton, Jr. ”LITTLE CHRISTMAS TREE”. It was Produced by Marcellino and Larson, engineered and mixed by, who else? Russ Terrana, of course. This track, featuring a 12 year old Michael, was supposed to be the follow up to “Ben,” but, surprisingly, never did get released as a single.

    I honestly can’t say I’m either a J5 or MJ fan, although I respect their work and ability, but I’m thrilled for you that you have a potential hit about ti blow wide open. Congratulations, my friend!
