Album Review

For the first time on a single-disc compilation, Hip O's The Jacksons Story combines both the group's Motown and Epic singles along with solo hits by Michael and Jermaine. Spanning 1969-1983, the program begins with early-'70s J5 chart-toppers like "I Want You Back," "I'll Be There," and "ABC," then delves into Michael's initial solo records of the same era: "Ben," "Rockin' Robin," and "Got to Be There." By 1976, the Jacksons had severed their long relationship with Motown and switched to Epic, reflected here by seven noteworthy tunes, including "Enjoy Yourself" and "Shake Your Body (Down to the Ground)." When the group changed record companies, Jermaine, who was married to the daughter of Motown honcho Berry Gordy, remained and was rewarded with his first solo hit in 1980's "Let's Get Serious." The disc wraps up with two songs that represent the beginning of Michael's solo career in earnest with 1979's "Don't Stop 'Til You Get Enough" and the massive hit "Billie Jean," released four years later. Though it's not as comprehensive as 1995's 21-track Ultimate Collection, The Jacksons Story holds together well and still offers a decent selection of the band's career highlights.

The Jackson 5 were one of the biggest phenomenons in pop music during the early '70s, and the last great group to come out of the Motown hitmaking machine before Marvin Gaye and Stevie Wonder shifted the label's focus to more individual visions. The Jackson 5's infectious brand of funky pop-soul was a definite departure from the typically smooth, elegant Motown sound, as befitting the group's youth and the dawn of a new decade. That youth, coupled with the merchandising juggernaut that sprang up...
