Michael Jackson -- 'Off the Wall' Remaster In the Works

12/13/2010 8:24 PM PST BY TMZ STAFF

Sources connected with the Michael Jackson/Sony deal tell TMZ ... among the 10 albums in the works is a remaster of "Off the Wall" -- with the help of none other than Quincy Jones.

Michael Jackson Off the Wall
We're told the plan is for Quincy to take charge of the project, which will include some never-before-heard outtakes.

Another album will feature the soundtrack to the upcoming Jackson-themed Cirque du Soleil show in Las Vegas.

There are reports circulating that Sony will release 10 original albums, but that's not true. In addition to the release of "MICHAEL" on Tuesday, we're told there will be at least one other album with original songs and at most two.

Sony doesn't care about sound improvement.
For them Remaster just means re-release.

Are u sure? I asked the guy at HMV here in Calgary & he said the sound quality is way better if its remastered. I bought the albums all over again, just for the sake of "remastered". Haha.

Living Crazy that's the only way - Pt. 2.......
-#88: AussieMJFan, Off the Wall has NOT been digitally remastered to date. And if you think Thriller was better than Off the Wall, that's cool....I personally think they're equally BRILLIANT, but Thriller goes one step further due to the risks it took for that era, and the fact that it's videos inspired a Revolution on their own....
-#89: pat mcclain, I agree but remember, Michael had NOTHING to do with the release of this CD. If he were alive, there's NO WAY he would've allowed it. As for the cover, I like the pic of Michael, but it doesn't work for me. There's a certain artistic flair that's missing....the art work almost reminds me of those velvet paintings from back in the day. Oye.
-#91, et.al: What's wrong Tellit? Not getting enough kicks out of your posts as aq, fake mimi/flowerpower? Too bad. Then again, maybe you're just tired of pontificating your delusions about Michael being alive--so sorry you don't have the wit and style to be able to "simmer" yourself...perhaps if you came from a place of "YES" instead of "NO" once in awhile?
I KNEW you had to be bored with yourself, correction YOURSELVES when you attacked Daphne, who never bothers anyone--how RANDOM of you....I knew you were LOW, nbut now you're descending even lower to the level of STALKER???
BTW: In order for one to recognize a rational mind, one must be rational him/herself....COME TO JESUS!!
Time for you to leave these boards and get a new hobby/life....yes? LOL x 1000!!!
-#92: Hey Daphne! Yeah that quality of that Bad Tour CD is crap! You can tell from the cheap cover print that Kingdom Entertainment cut corners on that one. Wonder who was in charge of that, Alwaleed? Anyhoo, they need to remaster it...I also would like to have the HIStory Tour. I have the Dangerous Bucharest DVD also, but would like the CD version as well.....
-#93: Eleonora49, I LOVE that young children LOVE Michael, but I just PRAY that someone's letting them listen to his REAL CD's. I've recently been on a project for a Children's show and the Child actors all know and love Michael. Funny thing is, I recently overheard them discussing Bieber and a few others and most did NOT like him. I expected that from the boys, but 9-12 year old girls? Just goes to prove, you can't fool ALL of the people....no matter what their age...

-#98: Aq/Tellit/BnB/Kimbo, et.al--Uneducated? Fool, you wouldn't know GENIUS if it walked up and slapped you in the face! Tell you what's UNEDUCATED, anyone who hangs out on a blog 24/7 (who's the REAL fanatic?) about a person that they obviously hate, simply to amuse themselves by trashing him and his supporters....
Careful, your OBSESSION is showing...
Thing is, I think you fully realize how GIFTED Michael was and that's your problem with him. I know there must have been a time in your life when you wanted to be on his level and realized you couldn't, so now you spend all of our time here posting crap about him like a modern day "Baby Jane"....oh, there's a nic for you....and when you're gone, we can ask, "Whatever happened to...." you know the rest....
FYI--You can save that crap about Michael's latter day look when it comes to me. I'm not one of these "Fairweather fans" who only thought he was gorgeous in the 80's and early 90's. It so happens that I've loved him throughout his career, but the Michael that I'm most attracted to happens to be the more recent Mike because that's who he was LAST, aging is a FACT OF LIFE, and not necessarily a NEGATIVE.....well, at least it wasn't for him, imo...HE WAS STILL HOT!!!
