Howard Mann has masters to 273 unreleased Jackson tracks

By Roger Friedman

HollywoodNews.com: Howard Mann, the Toronto entrepreneur who bought a warehouse full of Jackson family paraphernalia, has a surprise for Michael Jackson fans and the singer’s estate.

He has the masters to 273 unreleased Jackson tracks. Some are Michael alone, some are duets with superstars like Tina Turner, and some are with the Jackson family.

A good chunk of them come from the 1975 CBS variety series featuring the whole family.
According to Mann, who seems to know his stuff, the Jacksons were between the end of their Motown contract that summer and the beginning of one with Epic Records.

“The recordings belonged to the Jacksons. I bought them with the contents of the warehouse,” Mann says.

Mann feels the recordings therefore do not belong to the Jackson estate, and he can release them any way he sees fit.

    I support Howard Mann and Kathrine. I think she needs someone like him to actually help her get out from under the thumb of the estate lawyers. Kathrine said Michael never trusted the lawyers anyway and I believe her. The Estate people could care less about Michaels family. My hope is that Kathrine and Howard get to the bottom of their scandalous actions. Michael would be happy that his mother is being so brave and smart.

    I am always excited to hear more from MJ. I am the biggest fan of all time. I am looking forward to more releases of all things Michael. I hope Howard Mann shares more of his treasure trove with us fans! I am very excited to see and hear more!

    cool-cool, I am liking that there will be new stuff coming out from Michael Jackson.
    Howard Mann and MJ’s mom are family friends so why would this be a problem. It is not like the man has an agenda to hurt the family or Michael Jackson. Any word on when something will be released to the public?
