A Jackson moment

This is the only vinyl record that I ever have of the Jackson brothers
I also own a compact disc version of the record.

It wasn't on the Motown label as they had left that stable to join Columbia. And because of legal issues, the brothers had to change the group's name from The Jackson 5 to simply The Jacksons. Michael Jackson was in the line-up but Jermaine chose to remain at Motown. To make up the fivesome, the youngest Randy Jackson was brought in.

Somehow, I found this album to be thoroughly appealing. Maybe it was because of the slick production by Kenny Gamble and Leon Huff, and the lush sound by MFSB. In my opinion, the best songs on this album were Enjoy Yourself, Good Times and Show You The Way To Go.
