Beginning Years 1967-1968 Album CoverBeginning Years 1967-1968

The album 'Beginning Years 1967-1968' of The Jackson 5 And Johnny Featuring Michael Jackson was released in the USA in 1989 by S.D.E.G Records.

This recording features a very young (pre-Motown) Michael Jackson with his brothers performing a dozen classic Soul/R&B tunes with a very recognizable hint of their future success included the group's first two singles, 'Big Boy' and 'We Don't Have To Be Over 21', and their B-sides all songs over-dubbed.

The vinyl included a letter from Gordon Keith on the back side, Gordon who had recorded them at Steeltown, condemning the Jackson 5 for not getting the credit he was due and for asking for some sort of volunteer donation for his help.

Drummer Johnny Jackson was not a blood relative of the Jackson 5 but often referred to as their 'cousin' who was present for their earliest Steeltown recordings in Gary, Indiana.
When the Jackson family moved to Los Angeles, he went with them, was signed along with them to Motown and was on their earliest recordings for that label.

My album is printed in the USA with the series number: SDE 4018.

Live! (Live in Japan 1973) Album CoverLive! (Live in Japan 1973)

This album was been released in Germany on September 12th, 1988 by Motown and taken up in 1973. Where it is been taken up isn't mentioned on the cover, but suspect that it is in Japan, because of the few words which the J5 are telling in the local language.

Michael, Jermaine, Marlon, Tito and Jackie turn in a solid performance of their own material, including a medley of 'I Want You Back', 'ABC' and 'The Love You Save', plus solo hits from Michael and Jermaine.

What attract the most is that you can hear only Michael in stereo, his brothers and the music are divided over left and right. It's a nice album, also because you can hear how such a concert of the Jackson 5 was. Concert recorded at the Osaka Koseinenkin Hall, Japan, on April 30th, 1973.

Moving Violation (re-issue) Album CoverMoving Violation (re-issue)

'Moving Violation' is an early-disco album that was originally released on May 15th, 1975 in the USA, It is the final regular studio album released by the family quintet The Jackson 5 on Motown Records. This album you see is the re-issue that was released in 1984.

By the end of their six-year run in Motown, all five Jackson brothers had matured dramatically in both age and vocals: youngest member Michael was, at 16, the only non-adult in the group. With the boys now becoming men, it was difficult for the group to deal with Motown's policies against writing and producing their own material.

The group's funk-based version of Diana Ross & the Supremes 1968 single 'Forever Came Today' was a club hit, while the single's b-side, the R&B ballad 'All I Do Is Think Of You', became a popular and frequently covered song in its own right.

The Jackson 5 closed out their celebrated Motown tenure with 'Moving Violation', a slight if intermittently engaging LP buoyed, as always, by the brothers remarkable vocals.

All songs produced by Brian Holland, Mel Larsen, Jerry Marcellino & Hal Davis.

My (re-issue) album is printed in the USA with the series number: 5337 ML.

Track list:

Dancing Machine (re-issue) Album CoverDancing Machine (re-issue)

'Dancing Machine' is the tenth album released in the USA by Motown quintet The Jackson 5 on September 5th, 1974, but this album you see is the re-issue that was released in 1984 through Motown.

Although the Jacksons were back on the charts, the brothers still complained of their artistic direction. Nonetheless, the album became another disco concept album for the group, and showcased lead singers Michael and Jermaine Jackson. Around this time the Jacksons were performing in Las Vegas with the rest of the family leaving this album with low promotion.

All songs produced by Jerry Marcellino, Mel Larson & Hal Davis.

Get It Together (re-issue) Album CoverGet It Together (re-issue)

'G.I.T'.: 'Get It Together' is the ninth album by The Jackson 5; and first album to feature Michael Jackson's noticeable growth spurt, the album was released in the USA on September 12th,1973. This album you see is the re-issue that was released in 1984 through Motown.

Now 15-years-old, his voice began to deepen, taking on a more soulful sound. With Michael's voice having changed, the overall sound of the group changed as well. The little boys were now becoming adults, and those high notes that only Michael could hit were retired.

The album was a breakaway from the group's bubblegum soul sound as they came up with a more funk-oriented album similar to The Temptations Norman Whitfield-produced albums. Whitfield in fact provides covers of two of his Temptations songs here, 'You Need Love Like I Do (Don't You)', and 'Hum Along And Dance'. The Jackson 5's cover of the latter song, an eight-minute album-closer, is today regarded as the most notable version of the song. 'Get It Together' was also one of the earliest disco albums, released at a time before the genre was mainstream.

All songs produced by Hal Davis.

My (re-issue) album is printed in the USA with the series number: 5336 ML.

Skywriter (re-issue) Album CoverSkywriter (re-issue)

'Skywriter' is the eighth album and could be described as a turning-point record for The Jackson 5, released in the USA on March 29th, 1973. This album you see is the re-issue that was released in 1984 by Motown Records.

Lead singer Michael's vocals were now showing the signs of his maturing tenor voice, while Jermaine's voice had gotten much deeper in tone. Notably, one of 'Skywriter's' songs, 'Touch' (originally recorded by the Supremes in 1971), features Michael and Jermaine singing about satisfying a woman in the bed. As such, 'Touch' was one of the most controversial singles Michael sung on until his solo career took off again in the 1980's.

All songs produced by Jerry Marcellino & Mel Larson, Freddie Perren & Fonce Mizell, Deke Richards, Hal Davis, and Sherlie Matthews and The Corporation.
