What a fantastic find Florin and what this looks like is what Michael has talked about, the soundtrack for his documentary, "Gotta Keep Dreamin".  He said a soundtrack would be released but we have never been given a date.  Have to say I was wondering if we would hear the release date after The Grove, Los Angeles, CA, event for the documentary on 6th December.  I do see in the advert it does have the year "2014" and of course that was around the time when those short videos were found and then they were taken down as they had been released far too early.

Great find Florin and at least we know soundtrack is definitely on the way ...... wonderful and a HUGE thanks !! :)

Hi Florin, good to read you on here!  Thanks very much for bringing this link over and I hope Gail has more info. Let me just say that  in January 2013, we had seen/heard the trailer to what was called “Motor City”, which was supposed to be Michael’s companionDVD to “Ain’t no mountain high enough”, on the Vision Music site. The description on that old site, was that the film had been in production since 2011 and was going to be 6 30 minute segments. Now, from the new description, it sounds to me that this would be the HSN concert we saw/heard on-line on February 8 2013, just before the release of ANMHE. Michael mentioned earlier this year that the HSN concert would be released on DVD. I know it’s been a while, but I’m pretty sure it had short interviews throughout the special. So, that’s my view on it, hope Gail can help. Thanks again Florin, take care. Hugs, sincerely, Sylvie Qc Canada :D

Yeah Sylvie you are right Michael did say about Vegas show being released and some of the pictures in advert are from the show along with others that we saw at that time and especially from the short videos we saw where Michael was standing in the Motown Studios and of course the pic taken outside.  Don't know if you can see any of what Florin has posted but on one side is a description and on other is, what looks like, front cover of DVD and it is called "An All Star Tribute To Hitsville with Michael Bolton" and below that in bolder lettering is has got "Sounds Of Motown".  The background picture is from the stage of the Vegas show and there is a grid with four photos overlaid on it and they are of Smokey Robinson, Michael, Martha Reeves and Quincy Jones.  Other side contains 3 pics with one from the stage of Michael singing with Melanie Fiona, Michael inside Motown Studio and outside shot of Studio.  Above those is write up which Florin has posted.

Could someone tell me where my brain is to think that was anything to do with documentary......think I should go back to sleep !! LOL

Will say to you, Florin, thanks again for posting about what is obviously write up about new DVD from Hitsville show in Vegas, thanks !!! :)

Hi again Sylvia, thanks very much for describing Florin’s post. I can only read the description starting with: “Join legendary...”. Maybe what’s confusing about the description on the site is that they say it’s produced by Christina Kline. Now about the soundtrack to “Gotta keep dreamin’”, Michael said it would be a multi-artist soundtrack, because it relates to Detroit. I’m sure Michael will let us know as soon as it’s in the box. Take care Sylvia. Hugs, sincerely, Sylvie Qc Canada :D

It seems to me now like an old info. I found it using google. If you try to search it directly from vision films page, no results are shown.

Hi again Florin, well I’m not sure if it’s really old info, because there is a 2015 release date. If you check the old page:

http://www.vmiworldwide.com/Details.aspx?id=f8268688-4033-e211-a8d1...

The details and probably the picture is different. In any case, hopefully, Gail can look into it and let us know. Take care Florin. Hugs, sincerely, Sylvie Qc Canada :D

I would agree with Florin for it does say in advert "2014" so whether it was something that was thought to be released then but was postponed for have to remember a lot of the stuff from that time Michael took to his Documentary for that was how release date of that  kept getting extended.  Also Sylvie I cannot see a date of "2015" within link you have given.  The page which get taken to has actually got a date of "2011" at foot and by looks of picture and wording on it of "Motor City" it looks more like something which Christopher Gregory picked up toward beginning.

Hi Sylvia, I’ve re-read my comment to Florin to see what you had misunderstood. I meant the link he gave us had a 2015 date, right under the description he posted above:
“DIRECTED BY: Darren Mann
PRODUCED BY: Christina Kline
GENRE(S): Soul, R&B, Pop, Concert
RUNTIME: (Approx 90 Min)
YEAR: 2015”
Now, whether it’s wrong or not, the info has been updated from the old link, that’s all I’m saying. And yes it was the old link Christopher gave us, which shows that somewhere, the info was updated, relevant or not right now. I just hope Gail gets an answer. Take care Sylvia. Hugs, sincerely, Sylvie Qc Canada :D

Sorry Sylvie but in picture I'm looking at which Florin posted and from where you have copied info, after "Approx.90 min", it says, 2014 not 2015 so whether your reader is picking it up wrong but there is no way what I'm looking at is a 5.

In the details section it says 2015 indeed. Open the link and scroll down a little bit.

Florin

Thanks Florin and apologies Sylvie for now see "2015" which has obviously been changed from original date.  I did not realize "Sounds of Motown" was indeed a link .... makes it very interesting  !!! :)

Thanks Florin for clearing that up. Sylvia, I didn't want to argue with you, but I had copied the text with Jaws and I thought that if I can't trust my program now, I'm in deep trouble! XD. Take care guys. Hugs, sincerely, Sylvie Qc Canada :D
