Richard Altomare, who is the owner of Universal Express, is now trying to sell tapes containing over sixty unreleased Jackson 5 recordings. The tapes were among the Jackson family possessions he has been auctioning in Las Vegas.
He is said to be negotiating with Sony, Michael and Janet Jackson, and ishoping to release the music.
“I’ve personally talked to Michael and Janet on the phone about the tapes, and even played on a couple of songs for them,” Altomare said. “At first there was silence on the other end of the line, but that was quickly followed by giggles as if it brought them back to the day those songs were recorded.”
Janet Jackson was not, of course, part of the Jackson 5.
