Triumph, Victory, and 2300 Jackson Street due April 30th
Epic Records and Legacy Recordings have announced the second wave of titles in The Jacksons definitive album project. Expanded digital editions (featuring bonus tracks) of the group’s last three Epic studio albums – Triumph (1980), Victory (1984) and 2300 Jackson Street (1989) – will be released Friday, April 30th. Each album comes with three “instant grat” tracks when pre-ordered.
As part of the project, an exciting new remix of “Can You Feel It” was created by producer/composer Greg Curtis (engineered by Jon Nettlesbey) and executive produced by John McClain.
Greg Curtis kicks off his production of “Can You Feel It: The Jacksons X MLK Remix” with a roaring drum line and bookends the mix with recordings from the late Martin Luther King’s acclaimed 1968 The Drum Major Instinct speech at the Ebenezer Baptist Church in Atlanta. Midway, excerpts from the great Barack Obama’s first inauguration speech inspire. The production is capped with King’s words, “Free at last, Free at last; Thank God Almighty, Free at last.”
The expanded digital releases of Triumph, Victory and 2300 Jackson Street are available alongside The Jacksons (1976), Goin’ Places (1977) and Destiny (1978), released February 12th. The six studio albums recorded by The Jacksons for Epic Records trace the group’s spectacular leap from their Jackson 5 boy band roots to their role as avatars of an R&B/pop revolution (1976-1989). Each title includes the original album in its entirety, bundled with additional bonus tracks.
A 2 LP 12″ vinyl edition of The Jacksons Live!, recorded during their 1981 North American Triumph Tour, will be released on Friday, March 26th.
