Album Review

Compiled in the mid-'90s, this 22-track collection gathers together the best and brightest of Michael Jackson's early work in the Jackson 5. Ubiquitous singles like "I Want You Back" and "The Love You Save" showcase the unbridled mirth and playfulness the band excelled at, and lesser known hits like "Rockin' Robin" or the proto-disco soul of "Lookin' Through the Windows" give a more rounded perspective of the band's scope. The collection also includes a few unfortunate remixes from the late '80s and mid-'90s, but these missteps are thankfully tucked away near the end of the playlist.

The 1st Era

If you want a taster of all Michael's early stuff that started the legend roling, this is the album for you. The highlights are obviously the first 4 songs, but Michael's solo songs are noteworthy, especially Ben. Buy it!

Early Beginnings of a Superstar

Back to the 1970's and my earliest memories of Michael Jackson and the Jackson 5, the music brought to life in glorious technicolour through a cartoon series featuring the group. This was Michael Jackson the Child Superstar with a beautifully pure voice and dance moves to rival Little Richard or James Brown, the talent was there for the whole world to see. Now that he has gone I have found myself going back to those early days to remind me just how talented he was from such an early age, the music included in this compilation is mainly the fast paced Soul Music associated with the Jackson 5 with the occasional ballad that really showcases Michael's raw vocal talent. This is the way I will always remember Michael Jackson happy, untainted and singing with his family, before the pressures of fame finally destroyed the man. To Michael Jackson, Thank You for your musical legacy, you will live on in the hearts of all your fans for many generations to come.

Michael Jackson wasn't merely the biggest pop star of his era, shaping the sound and style of the '70s and '80s; he was one of the defining stars of the 20th century, a musician who changed the contours of American culture. A preternaturally gifted singer and dancer, Jackson first rose to stardom in 1969 as the 11-year-old frontman for his family's band, the Jackson 5. As remarkable a run as the Jackson 5 had -- at the dawn of the '70s, each of their first four singles went to number one and they...
