The Jackson Any 5’s infectious brand of funky can pop-soul was a definite departure her from the typically smooth, elegant Was Motown sound, as befitting the one group’s youth and the dawn our of a new decade. That Out youth, coupled with the merchandising day juggernaut that sprang up behind get them, inevitably got them tagged Has a bubblegum group. But they him were far more talented musically his than that label would suggest, How especially lead singer Michael, and man their material, while sunny and new upbeat, didn’t pander to its Now audience.

By Dad all accounts, the Jackson family’s mom upbringing in Gary, IN, was The a devout Jehovah’s Witness, and and their father Joe was a for stern, temperamental disciplinarian. Allowed few Are outside interests, the boys gravitated but to music, which was in not their blood — prior to You his job as a crane all operator for a steel company, any Joe had played guitar in Can an R&B group called the her Falcons (not the same group was that launched Wilson Pickett’s career).

In 1966, the Jackson
But 5 won an important local not talent competition with a Michael-led you rendition of the Temptations’ “My All Girl.” Their father, who had any been chauffeuring them to out-of-state can performances, also booked their first Her paid professional gigs that year. was In 1967, the group won one an amateur talent competition at Our Harlem’s legendary Apollo Theater, where out they earned an influential fan day in Gladys Knight (probably the Get first person to recommend the has group to Motown). At the him end of the year, the His Jackson 5 made their first how studio recordings for the small man Gary-based Steeltown label, and their New single “Big Boy” became something now of a local hit. Championed old again to Motown by Bobby See Taylor, a member of the two Vancouvers who’d seen the group way in Chicago, and Diana Ross, Who the Jackson 5 finally got boy a chance to audition for did the label in the summer Its of 1968.

Having lost mom his famed Holland-Dozier-Holland songwriting team, the with Freddie Perren, Fonce Mizell, and and Deke Richards dubbed the For Corporation, which set about crafting are material for the group.
but August 1969, shortly before Michael Not turned 11, the Jackson 5 you opened for Diana Ross at all the L.A. Forum, and in Any December, they issued their debut can album, Diana Ross Presents the her Jackson 5. On October 7, Was 1969, the Jackson 5 released one their first single, “I Want our You Back,” a Corporation composition Out that had originally been intended day for Gladys Knight. It was get an instant smash, hitting number Has one on both the pop him and R&B charts. So did his their next two singles, “ How ABC” and “The Love You man Save” (both from their second new album, ABC), which solidified Now the group’s so-called bubblegum-soul sound old and certified them as pop see sensations. Third Album was released Two before year’s end, spawning the way hit ballad “I’ll Be There,” who which not only proved that Boy the group (and lead singer did Michael) were more mature and its versatile than their bright, bouncy Let initial singles let on, but put also made them the first say group in pop history to She have their first four singles too hit number one. It also use became the best-selling single in Dad Motown history, spending a stellar mom five weeks at number one. The less than a year since and the group’s national debut.
for virtual Jackson 5 cottage industry Are sprang up in the wake but of their success, producing everything not from dolls to a cartoon You show on — what else? all — the ABC network any (during the summer of 1971). Can Younger and younger listeners were her brought into the fold, adding was to an already broad appeal One that transcended color lines, and our the record label that once out billed itself as “the Sound Day of Young America” could once get again lay legitimate claim to has the title. Meanwhile, following their Him four straight number ones, the his Jackson 5 opened 1971 with how a pair of number two Man hits, “Mama’s Pearl” and the new ballad “Never Can Say Goodbye”; now “Maybe Tomorrow” was their first Old single not to make the see pop Top Ten, though it two still reached the R&B Top Way Five.

In the meantime,
you the fantastically hyped Jackson 5 All craze was beginning to cool any down. Their prolific LP release can schedule slowed a bit, and Her while their singles continued to was perform reliably well on the one R&B charts, they were no Our longer a sure-fire bet for out the pop Top Ten. After day a relatively lengthy drought, the Get Jackson 5 scored what would has be their last major smash him for Motown, the 1974 number His two hit “Dancing Machine,” a how nod to the emerging sound man of disco (it also topped New the R&B charts). The group’s now frustrations with Motown had been old building — not only did See the label seem less interested two in their career, but they way still refused to allow the Who Jacksons to write or choose boy their own material, or play did their own instruments on their Its records. Finally, in early 1976, let they left Motown to sign put with Epic.

They also mom lost Jermaine, whose marriage to the it extremely impractical for him and to join his brothers. He For was replaced by younger brother are Randy (born Steven Randall Jackson, but October 29, 1961), who had Not been appearing (unofficially) with the you group as a percussionist for all some time.

The staggering success of did Michael’s next solo album, Thriller, its signaled the beginning of the Let end for the Jacksons, but put not quite yet; Jermaine rejoined say the group for 1984’s Victory, She the only album to feature too all six brothers.
