And yet Jermaine Motown material stays in the vault. All of La Toya and Rebbie's albums have been remastered and re-released in recent years while nothing from Randy, Marlon and Jackie have been touched and only Jermaine Arista albums (4) and 2 Motown Records (he released 13) have had that honor.



Yeah it makes no sense LBC, Jermaine's motown albums are good, they should've been remastered years ago


I had no idea Jermaine has 13 solo titles on the Motown label. Why does Universal continuously reissue the same two titles over and over again to the Japan market? I mean, anyone who is interested in the “Lets Get Serious” title should have it by now.

I think just 9 on Motown (plus 3 unreleased), 13 total.

Interestingly enough, Toy-Toy's live concert performances are popping up in my YT feed (along with all other manner of 1980s concerts) this is so campishly bad it's fantastically good, especially when she gets to the gospel choir singing her single, "Be My Lover" at the 23:30 min mark falloff falloff falloff

That is one hell of a concert. I have it on VHS and DVD. Letoya was arguably at the peak of her powers and her show was very complete. It had a gospel choir, an invited act, a great band, a great wardrobe and great backups. I remember sending an electronic mail to the Grannys back when people still didn't use electronic mails much and told them in the message body to look out for Toy, cause she was killin' it, you know? And the Grannys actually replied to me and told me they were going to look out for her. I then sent them another electronic mail telling them to consider giving her a Granny and they answered positively only to ignore her sad

Jermaine has another album from a few years ago that was jazz standards with an opera singer. It was his first album since 1991. He probably has another 1 or 2 albums worth of songs from soundtracks, B-sides and other artists records. He has 4 songs released with Whitney Houston alone, plus another unreleased song, which was the song Dennis Edwards later released Don't Look Any Further.

For 65 years straight, the #1 genre in music, selling wise, was rock n' roll worldwide. Last year (2017) in June, it got de-crowned by hip hop. Hip hop is the #1 genre. It's hip hop - rock - country - pop or pop - country. ~ Pras

I have the original CD pressing of this album and it's not half bad. I rank it up there with Janet's first couple of albums. Not much in the way of bonus tracks with the so-called Deluxe Edition, though. I may get it for the remastering.


Man, Latoya was really pretty once.

It's really no surprise Prince(r.i.p) wanted to bang her.

So Prince, whom fought 4 his first record deal & got it, fought 4 a movie deal & got it, fought 4 freedom from his WB contract & got it, fought 4 his masters & got them.Gets a curable illness & says 2 himself ok, I'm done. "Life is a Box Of Chocolates"

La Toya's first three albums are actually genuinely OK... there, I said it. lol It's worth remembering that she made good use of the Jacksons' contacts list for her first few albums - Michael, Stevie, Patrice Rushen etc. I think she might've also co-written some stuff with Randy on My Special Love, if I'm not confusing that with something else.

But as others have said, Jermaine's (very creditable) Motown material mostly not being reissued is still baffling. I don't understand why Universal are still sitting on it. They should've done something with it in the early 2010s when there was a slight revival of 'Jacksonmania' after Michael passed, and when the group started touring again.

lol Well, this one makes more sense than Cherry Red's 2-CD reissue of "You're Gonna Get Rocked". That one sold so poorly, you can get a brand new, sealed copy for like five bucks. "My Special Love" has been OOP and extremely scarce on CD for decades so it will probably sell better.


I wonder what was on that second disc though. A bunch of stabby Full Force remixes done with 2.5 seconds of sampling memory.

It's a 1987 movie called Student Confidential. TCM. According to a thread at MJJCommunity it was filmed a few years before it was released (circa 1982). It's probably the only time Marlon has been seen without a mustache past the mid 1970s

I sold my Japan CD a few weeks ago. Got my new CD earlier this week. La Toya has always been a bit of a guilty pleasure of mine. lol
