Big Boy (Promo) [2nd Pressing] Single CoverBig Boy (Promo) [Single - 2nd Pressing]

'Big Boy' promo single of The Jackson 5 was initially hand-sold by Michael and his brothers, at the many gigs they played, and was picked up for national distribution by Atco, a subsidiary of Atlantic Records. A recording that is or soon will be commercially available'.

A legendary release; this is the single which launched the career of one of the biggest stars in pop history! The 2nd pressing is distributed by ATCO Records.

Released on Gordon Keith's short lived record label 1 year before the family outfit signed up to Motown. This recording took mere hours to lay down in the studio and in true early soul style, retains an immense rawness against Michael's sweet vocals. Backed with 'You've Changed', with only minor surface marks and slight 'foxing' marks to the label preventing this wax from receiving a Mint grading - A wonderful piece of pop history and a beautiful spinner!)

A:
1. Big Boy - 2:30

B:
1. You've Changed - 2:30

Record label: Steeltown Records
Released: 03-1968

The song 'Big Boy' was the first single ever released by The Jackson 5 in the USA on January 31st, 1968 (USA only), through Steeltown Records. The second pressing is released in March 1968 and distributed by ATCO Records.

The demo was recording circa November 1967. Die-hard fans know it was recorded in late 1967 and released early in 68. The single was initially hand-sold by Michael and his brothers, at the many gigs they played, and was picked up for national distribution by Atco, a subsidiary of Atlantic Records, who pressed about 10.000 copies. Sold well locally, it failed to register on any of Billboard's charts.

It actually doesn’t have the characteristics of a big hit. It is far from the Motown sound. However their is this heavy bass and these amplified snare drums that make it sound like an authentic soul ballad.

1. You've Changed - 2:30

Record label: Steeltown Records
