    The original master recordings of MIKA at Abbey Road Studios will be auctioned!! Spink to Offer the Michael Gleason Collection of Original Master Recordings of Musical Performances, Recorded at Abbey Road Studios, Part 1 21 May 2019 PR Newswire Europe LONDON, May 21, 2019 /PRNewswire/ -- Spink is honoured to present the first part of the Michael Gleason Collection, comprised of the original master recordings of musical performances of eighteen world-renowned artists performing over sixty songs at Abbey Road Studios. The auction will take place on June 20th, 2019 at Spink's headquarters office in London. In 2005, Michael Gleason, a successful Texan entrepreneur and producer residing in London, decided to create and produce Live from Abbey Road, a new music television performance series. Inspired by the 1967 original idea of The Beatles to make live broadcast recordings at Abbey Road Studios, the idea was to record sublime musical performances from some of the world's greatest musical artists in the best studio in the world. A Star Masterpiece Collection was born. From 2006-2012, more than one hundred and forty world-class musical artists came to Abbey Road Studios as a result of a very special invitation: to perform for the global series Live from Abbey Road. The series reached over 120 countries. This superb collection is comprised of the only original master recordings of the musical artists' performances made on their day at Abbey Road Studios. Hours of never-seen video footage and never-heard audio are included with each artist. There are no other copies of these master recordings. To create the best recordings possible, up to ninety microphones were used to record instrumental and vocal sound straight into the famous Abbey Road sound desks. To produce the best video footage possible, up to eight high-definition film and digital cameras captured every performance, as well as on-camera interviews with the individual artist or musical group. Several takes of a song were recorded in order to achieve the best possible live audio and video. As per Michael Gleason: "In the upcoming auction, I selected with Muriel, eighteen of my favourite artists and bands. Just to list a few, Ed Sheeran, Seal, the Gipsy Kings, Jamiroquai and The Killers… They cover a wide range of music tastes and appeal to a diverse audience. Now is the time to make it accessible to music lovers, art collectors, museums, music schools, artists and their labels, everybody who wants to own rare unique content. If you are a music collector, or love to collect but have never collected music before, these beautiful, original single edition audio and video recordings and photographs will be a priceless addition to your collections for you and generations to come." Muriel Eymery remarked, "To own a collection of original master studio recordings is the Holy Grail for all music lovers and extremely rare. Many of us dream to own an original recording of their favourite artist's or band's performance. When I met Michael Gleason, I knew this dream could come true for collectors around the world. A collection of this size and importance has never been available to collectors and the public at large until now. Each lot is in itself an important masterpiece of modern music history." Here is a complete artist list for the June 20th auction: Seal Blondie Elbow Jamiroquai Mika Two Door Cinema Club The Good the Bad & the Queen (feat. Damon Albarn) Natasha Bedingfield The Killers (2009 Session) Django Django Ed Sheeran The Kooks (2011 Session) Randy Crawford and Joe Sample Alanis Morissette Friendly Fires Beady Eye (feat. Liam Gallagher) Gipsy Kings Anna Calvi For each artist, a lot has been assembled and includes: A USB flash drive, in a dedicated leather case, loaded with the final master audio and video recordings, for ease of use while on the move. It is sleek, covered in white leather with gold letters reminding its content: "The Michael Gleason Collection of Original Recordings – Recorded at Abbey Road Studios", offered in a Spink box. A visually stunning, translucid, lathe cut vinyl dub plate, pressed with the final master versions of the songs recorded by the Artist (or the Band). The central vinyl artwork shows the name of the artist/band, the date and location of recording, and "Edition 1/1". A Glyph 1TB External Hard Drive of all of the digital recorded material, (or in a lot where the video footage is on film tape, the original tapes are included.) A poster sized, framed black and white still photograph, and two additional, desk size, unframed, photos of the Artist (or the Band) taken on the day of the performance. A signed certificate of authenticity from Michael Gleason.

    Talk about you - Lyrics & Song Discussion

    Such a conflict should be avoided with upcoming new songs... --- ‘Blurred Lines’ on Their Minds, Songwriters Create Nervously By Ben Sisario 1763 words 1 April 2019 03:23 Feed (A part about TAY from the article) Ross Golan, a songwriter who hosts the podcast “And the Writer Is ...,” complained that when it comes to negotiations over royalty changes, writers can be left out altogether. When “Talk About You,” a song he wrote with the pop singer Mika and another writer, was released in early 2015, Mr. Golan said, he was surprised to learn that his share of the royalties had been reduced, and that five new names had been added to the credits — all without his knowledge. Mr. Golan said he was furious, but the only action he could take was largely symbolic: refusing to grant permission for a few licensing deals down the line. “I would rather shelve my asset than have someone else sell my integrity,” he said. But Mika acknowledged that the deal was necessary. In a Facebook post at the time, he said that it was “immediately obvious” that “Talk About You” bore a resemblance to two older songs — “Sarà Perché Ti Amo,” a 1981 European hit by the Italian pop group Ricchi e Poveri, and “I Only Want to Be With You,” a widely covered 1963 earworm by Dusty Springfield — and that it was his choice to share credit with the writers of those songs. “Some music comes from no where, some is inspired by other songs and others totally reference them,” Mika wrote. “In that case its always good to be crystal clear before a record even comes out.” Mr. Golan said that what bothered him was less the existence of a deal than the fact that he had no say in it. “If there are/were similarities, they were beyond unintentional,” Mr. Golan wrote in an email. “We’d never heard those songs.”

    Imagine for Margo

    Video Interview of Janotte, who was associated with MIKA on campaign for "Imagine for Margo". She is talking about MIKA from 02:28. Brut. France Télévisions 26/02/2019 VIDEO. "Je suis fière de moi car j’ai survécu" : À 10 ans, elle a déjà vaincu le cancer Janotte incarne le combat de l'association "Imagine for Margo" qui œuvre pour les enfants diagnostiqués d'un cancer. "Elle n'a pas renoncé, elle a été courageuse", explique la mère de Janotte. À seulement 10 ans, la petite fille a déjà survécu à un cancer du rein. Pendant longtemps, elle a dû subir de lourds traitements qui l'ont parfois obligée à être allongée en permanence sur un lit, les docteurs lui préconisant de ne plus se redresser. Elle a pu surmonter cette épreuve difficile grâce au soutien de ses proches, notamment de celui de sa mère qui lui a prodigué des conseils forts tels que : "Croire en soi, ne pas penser qu'on va mourir." Un combat gagné "Je suis fière de moi car j'ai survécu, car j'ai cru en moi", confie Janotte. Aujourd'hui, elle peut jouer comme tous les enfants et pratique régulièrement l'équitation. "Quand je monte à poney, j'oublie tous mes soucis", explique la jeune fille avant de faire des trots assurés dans un centre équestre. Quelque temps auparavant, Janotte était aux côtés du chanteur Mika pour la campagne de sensibilisation de "Imagine for Margo". L'association lève des fonds pour la recherche contre le cancer des enfants et pour améliorer leur bien-être. Chaque année en Europe, 35 000 enfants et adolescents sont diagnostiqués d'un cancer. (Google Translation) Janotte embodies the fight of the association "Imagine for Margo" which works for children diagnosed with cancer. "She did not give up, she was brave," says Janotte's mother. At only 10 years old, the little girl has already survived kidney cancer. For a long time, she had to undergo heavy treatments that sometimes forced her to be lying permanently on a bed, the doctors urging her to no longer recover. She was able to overcome this difficult ordeal thanks to the support of her family, especially her mother who gave her strong advice such as: "Believe in yourself, do not think you are going to die." A fight won "I'm proud of myself because I survived because I believed in myself," says Janotte. Today, she can play like any other child and regularly rides. "When I go pony, I forget all my worries," says the girl before making trots insured in an equestrian center. Some time ago, Janotte was alongside singer Mika for the "Imagine for Margo" awareness campaign. The association raises funds for research against childhood cancer and to improve their well-being. Every year in Europe, 35,000 children and adolescents are diagnosed with cancer. --- attached some screenshots from the video.
