LEGENDARY. HISTORIC. INCREDIBLE. These are just some of the words that can be used to describe the life and career of the unequivocal King of Pop, Michael Jackson. They also describe this unbelievable collection of photos and slides that are sure to make any Michael Jackson fan do the moonwalk. Michael Jackson gifted the world with his amazing music, joyous personality, and incredible inspiration, garnering millions, even billions of fans over the years. To commemorate the 3rd anniversary of his passing on June 25, Premiere Props celebrates the life of Michael Jackson by offering an incredible array of original photographs, negatives, and slides that have NEVER BEFORE BEEN SEEN. These unreleased gems were taken by photographer Reginald Garcia who was commissioned by Motown Records in 1973 to document the recording of the last album by the Jackson 5, 'G.I.T.: Get it Together.' Get It Together, released in Sept. 1973, sold over two million copies and was the first album to feature Michael's 15 year-old, slightly deeper singing voice, which ultimately changed the sound of the group. The album was a change from the group's 'bubblegum soul' sound and was one of the earliest albums to experiment with the pre-disco sound. It was also the first album that featured Michael's 'vocal hiccup' that would later become one of his signatures. Mr. Garcia has had these photos and slides in his possession for over 30 years, and they are now available to the public for the first time ever! These amazing treasures are completely original and include any and all rights to reproduce them. This is an incredible, once-in-a-lifetime opportunity to obtain truly historic items from a truly historic entertainer, with future value potential that could be unprecedented. This wonderful B&W photo features Michael sitting at his make-up table, letter in hand, with legs up on the table, and his image in the mirror (4"x6"). Very apropos as he was later known for his single 'Man in the Mirror.' This B&W photo comes with a cut and framed contact sheet negative and a blown up 8"x10" photo.
