Page 10 POST-GAZETTE, SEPTEMBER 28, 2012 Fac by bob morello ax reviewing the rest MICHAEL JACKSON - BAD 25 Epic-Legacy Michael Jackson's music comes alive with Epic/Legacy Recordings release of the 'Bad 25' deluxe package of three COs, two collectible booklets, and a DVD release from the BAD tour's July 16, 1988 stop at Wembley Stadium. CD One features re-mastered versions of Michael's biggest hits from the original BAD album released 25 years ago, including: "Smooth Criminal," "Man In The Mirror," "Bad," "Another Part of Me," "The Way You Make Me Feel," and "Dirty Diana." CD Two offers fans a rare listen to 13 additional tracks, 6 previously unreleased demos created at Michael's personal studio, plus three bonus tracks from the 2001 expanded edi- tion of BAD: the previously unreleased French version of Jackson performing the classic, "I Just Can't Stop Loving You," a high power version of "Speed Demon," and the brand new remix of "Bad" -- an electrifying collaboration between Pi,bhll :ond Dutch DJ Afrojack. The ultimate highlight of the package is CD Three and the DVD -- the never seen before live concert on DVD, sourced from Jackson's personal VHS copy, and its accompanying music CD of Michael's leg- endary 1988 concert at Wembley Stadium. The complete show is exactly as performed for Prince Charles, Princess Diana and 72,000 fans. The visuals have been restored and the audio quality enhanced so that the fans can share in the excitement of that history-making night. The DVD has 'The Way You Make Me Feel" from the July 15 a performance, as the show on the 16  started late and the song was omit- ted from the recording. Also contained are thrilling early Yokohama Stadium (9/87) performances of "I Just Can't Stop Loving You" and "Bad" from the first leg of the BAD World Tour. A total of 59 songs from the era of BAD that represent Jackson's creative 'coming of age' as a solo artist in charge of every aspect of his career from recording to merchandis- ing. 'BAD' was the first album in history to produce five con- secutive # 1 singles. The BAD World Tour was Michael's first solo world tour, and his only North American solo tour. Long lives the memory of the King of PopI DESTINY'S CHILD - PL&YLIST Music WorldColumbiaLegacy Listed as one of the Top 3 biggest-selling girl groups in pop history (Spice Girls and TLC), Destiny's Child - Play-list chronicles the seven wonderful years that their pop dreams came true. Their #1 R&B 1997 debut single "No, No, No Part 2" featuring Wyclef Jean is among the 14 tracks that include all five of their Billboard #1 pop and #I R&B hits. Gems as, "Bootylicious," "Independent Women, Part 1," "Say My Name" and "Bills, Bills, Bills." Added energy in the form of "Bug A Boo," the Neptunes Remix of "Emotion," the party- ing "Jumpin', Jumpin'," and the joyful "Survivor" from their fourth album of the same name. Their final album, 'Des- tiny Fulfilled,' was the source of a pair bf #3 pop singles - "Lose My Breath" and "Soldier" featuring T.I. & Lir Wayne, along with the power of "Girl." rhe Very Best of Destiny's Child' winds down via "So Good" and "Illusion" with Wyclef Jean and Pras of Refugee Camp. 60 million records sold and 2 Grammy wins -- no surprise here? MATCHBOX TWENTY - NORTH Emblem-Atlantic For the first time in a decade, Matchbox Twenty delivers their first brand-new album simply titled 'North'. Powered by Rob Thomas' vocals, the group has already scored with the smash single "She's So Mean." Trailing are 11 trade- mark MB20 tracks chock full of driving pop-rock beauties blessed with indelible melodies, crafty lyrics and glorious hooks. The initial cut, "Parade" sets the pace followed by "Overjoyed," the spirited "Put Your-Hands l'the explosive " mr " " ' ' ' UJCIII i' : O Song, lowering the dcibeis for e pre[ty i Will." Grammy Award-winning producer Matt Serletic brings out the best of MB20 on cuts as, "English Town," the question- ing "How Long," tuning in with the driving "Radio," and get the message with "The Way." Thomas is the force behind the group's success, winning 3 Grammy Awards, 11 BMI Awards, and was twice recognized by Billboard magazine as "Songwriter of the Year." The sweet "Like Sugar" and the haunting "Sleeping at the Wheel" end this superb albuml MUSIC FROM THE BATMAN TRILOGY Silva Screen Composers Hans Zimmer and James Newton Howard are responsible for the intrigue, suspense and enhancement of the 'Batman' films with their music. The London Music Works and City of Prague Philharmonic Orchestra was challenged to bring to life the themes from the three films as composed by Zimmer and Howard. The 'Batman Begins' track listing was a series of five that included: "Vespertilio," "Eptesicus," "Barbastella," "Antrozous" and "Molossus." rhe Dark Knight' displays the distinct individual styles of Zimmer and Howard. Zimmer blends percussion and electronics while Howard features lush orchestral passages and solo piano sections. Tracks contain "Why So Serious," "Aggressive Expansion," "Like a Dog Chasing Cars," "Introduce a Little Anarchy" and "A Watchful Guardian." 'The Dark Knight Rises,' the final film of the trilogy, was penned solely by Zimmer, who blended operatic, militaristic and mystical to create a powerful climax, with "Mind If I Cut In," "Fear Will Find You," "Why Do We F al!," "Imagine the Fire" and "Rise." The time has come, the walrus said, TO TALK OF MANY THINGS of shoes and ships and sealing wax of cabbages and kings by Sal Giarratani JOYCE FUNDRAISER COMING UP NOVEMBER 3 While attending this year's South Boston Street Festival, I stopped by a booth advertis- ing an upcoming fundraiser in South Boston. On Satur- day, November 3 starting at 9:00 am there will be a 5K Road Race to raise money for a Mother's Rest for the Michael Joyce Memorial Playground. If you wish to donate to this worthy com- munity project, stop by November 3. Join-the Road Race. Do a walk. Donate-some money to the cause. HARRY S. TRUMAN RALLY IS BACK This year the Harry S. Truman Rally in West Rox- bury will be held on Monday, November 5 on the Election eve. For years hundreds of folks and a bazillion politi- cian would show up for their five minutes of fame. The rally disappeared over time but, thanks to Rep. Ed Cop- pinger and Councilor Matt O'Malley, the rally returned last year. I will keep you posted here on the time and place of this event. Mean- while, there will be a gath- ering at the West Roxbury Pub Function Room to raise funds for the November rally scheduled for Thursday, Oc- tober 18 from 6:00-8:00 pm. Suggested donation is $20. MORE BUILDINGS FOR SALE IN SEAPORT National Development will be selling six buildings in the Seaport District including the building at 263 Summer Street known for its rounded facade and red neon beacon on the roof. The Boston Wharf building has been illuminat- ing the Seaport for decades and the company was a real estate empire from the 1880s to the 1920s. The sign itself is the Seaport/Fort Point version of the CITGO sign in Kenmore Square. Back in 2006, $200,000 was spent to re-light the long-dark neon sign. LT. GOV. TIM MURRAY SEEMS EVERYWHERE Obviously, Lt. Gov. Tim Murray must be running for governor in 2014 because I keep seeing his name and face everywhere. Recently, press releases started off talking about the Patrick- Murray Administration. I think he's wasting his time but I thought that too about Patrick back in early 2006 when he was a long-shot. Time will tell, but every time I think of him, I think of the Crown Victoria or the Chelsea Housing Authority, two stories with no positive spin. TISEI LOOKING GOOD IN RACE I've seen those Tierney ads on TV and they seem so silly. No way can the Demo- crats lump Tisei in with conservative wing-nuts in the Republican Party. Tisei is pro-choice, a moderate and an out in the open gay Republican. Tierney's going down and his ads look like a desperate attempt to turn Tisei into something he has never been. Massachusetts could use one Republican congressman and Tisei looks like that candidate. OUR LADY OF THE ANNUNCIATION BAZAAR Our Lady of the Annuncia- tion Cathedral on the VFW Parkway will be holding its 2012 bazaar October 12, 13 and 14. Check it out that weekend either before or after you watch the annual Roslindale Day Parade. A great two-for to take in. FIELDS CORNER GROUPS HONOR BARRY MULLEN Over in Dorchester both Close to Home and the Freeport Adams Neighbor- hood Association presented OFD'er Barry Mullen with awards for his continued work in the neighborhood. City Councilor Frank Baker also gave Mullen an award for his outstanding contribu- tion to the Fields Corner community. Mullen was raised in Fields Corner and today resides down the street in St. Mark's Parish. LIBERALS OUT TO SAVE U.S. FROM OURSELVES In Brookline, liberals want to ban those styrofoam cups. If they have their way, coffee shops across town will have to come up with another kind of container for your coffee, remember styrofoam might cause cancer. Perhaps, warn- ings should be placed on those foam cups stating, "Do not eat this cup you might die from it." Mean- while in Concord, you can't buy single-serving water bottles either. From now on folks in Concord will have to travel all the way next door to Lexington to purchase them. Not to be outdone, down in New York City, no more super-sized or Big Gulp soda drinks for sale. Now, you can only buy too much soda by getting a free refill of a smaller cup. Big deal. I am so glad that all those lib- erals are out there guard- ing us from ourselves. Good country, America. Remem- ber when it was free. It seems not anymore. GREAT GREEK FESTIVAL IN ROSLINDALE SQUARE The Annual Greek Festi- val organized by St. Nectarios Greek Orthodox Church will be held on the weekend of October 5-7. I was there last year and had a great time. You should check this out. You'll be glad you did. LOOKING FOR A FEW GOOD BOWLERS The St. John-St. Lazarus Bowling League is looking for bowlers. The League bowls Thursdays at 7:00 pm at Central Park Bowling Alley in Eastie. For further info, call Joe at 617-851-4107 or Nunny at 781-245-6622. MATTAPAN HEALTH CENTER OPENS State and city officials were joined by residents and com- munity leaders to celebrate the opening of the brand new Mattapan Community Health Center recently. This new building will be able to double the numbers of patients that the old center, served. Kudos to the neighborhood for their continued advocacy for this new health center building. It will immediately become one of the foundations of this neighborhood. It is good news for all those seeking medical services in their own neighborhood.
