Editors’ Notes

Better-known as an actress at the time (she had played Penny on the sitcom Good Times), Janet Jackson was only 16 when she released her debut album. That infectious, youthful energy comes through both in her bubbly voice and the bouncy R&B-pop tunes. Several songs—including the kinetic opener, "Say You Do," and horn-driven single "Young Love"—were written and produced by soul vets Angela Winbush and René Moore, who provide a sleekly elegant, early '80s dance-floor vibe.

Customer Reviews

Janet's First Album

I Absolutly loved it, my favorite track of all time would have to be Forever Yours. 5 stars !!!!!

Young Love, First Love

Firstly, in order to have a true appreciation for this classic 80's cut you have to see Janet lip-synch to it on American Bandstand (I would love to own that on DVD hint-hint). The beat, the melody & the lyrics capture the essence of the era & that freshness & newness of a first love. This cut has a certain spell over me. No matter where, no matter how I feel this simple tune puts a smile on my face, a song in my heart, a pep in my step & without realizing it I am sing the chorus of Young Love. Young Love captures the highs of young love (Young love, all adds up to me and you), as well as the blues of young love (Heartbreak's high game, love shake you down). "Good Times", "Diff'rent Strokes" "Fame" (the series) & a decent career in film for many of her lifelong fans Janet was, is & will always be our Young Love.

I Like This Album

I was surprised to see that iTunes now has Janet Jackson's debut album. She sounds very good for sixteen. I like "Don't Mess Up This Good Thing" and "Young Love" which has a very upbeat melody. "You'll Never Find A Love Like Mine" is also a good song and so is "Forever Yours." I really like "Love and My Best Friend" which is a very sweet song. For all Janet Jackson fans who've been dying to find her early work, here it is!
