Format: Audio CD
After Motown and Jermaine leaving to persue a solo career the Jackson Five added Randy and became The Jacksons. The decamp to Epic was something of a mixed blessing and this collection charts their development from musical vessels into a confident musical unit able to work with the best of black music's hierachy.

Beginning with the eponymous "Jacksons" album the band were aligned to Philadelphia International Records and Epic, with house producers Gamble & Huff shaping the band into a more glossy pop soul sound. The biggest track here is "Show Me The Way To Go" with neat vocal sounds shifting them away from their Motown days. The rest of the album does much the same and there is a hint of the disco sheen the producers and writers were probably hoping for throughout. Tracks like "Keep On Dancing" and "Enjoy Yourself" also hint at this too. The overall impression is of a band moving with the times and sounding a product of their new label, it's pleasant but not utterly essential stuff.

Following on the heels of this "Goin' Places" should be a step forward. Using all of the Philly house writers this looks promising. That said it's the time when Philadephia's sound was taking a battering from more straight ahead disco and the label suddenly seemed to have lost its touch. The writing quality for all their acts at this time seems to dip and this is painfully evident on this album. Lyrically clunking in parts it's a pretty mundane record throughout. There are no highlights to speak of at all. It's the sound of a band who seem to have lost their direction.

This is the beautiful music that made the Jacksons rule the world of music when I was growing up timeless ageless Great Classics too many to name..Heartbreak Hotel, We can change the world, Wait, state of Shock, Can you feel it,Body,Torture,Man of War, One more chance too many to name and my all time favourite the Hurt.

It was also great to hear all the brothers sing in harmonies awesome gifts they have Tito in we can rule the World and Randy in The Hurt, Michael in Heartbreak Hotel, Marlon in the Body.

There is simply no bad song immediately lovable and likeable. Great value for money and a must for every lover of Soul and R&B.

I would love to hear these great vocalists sing again..MJ was the most hardworking Jackson but not the most talented..come on guys....!

This CD box set is great if you want all the albums in one and I like it because it saves me space instead of having 5 CD's in CD cases which takes much more room. The CD's are of good quality but in terms of sound quality they could be better. I recommend this if you like The Jacksons music and just want all their albums all together in one place then this is a must-have for you.

I keep these cds in my car and listen to them over and over again - the songs are for the most part thoughtful, though easy listening. Most tracks stand up to repeat playing and some are so good you wonder why they were not released as singles to form a greater part of the 70s playlists you hear on the radio today. Michael's exceptionally musical voice raised most songs from 'good' to 'great', and the brotherly ensemble works well, in spite of how Michael felt he was growing apart from the brothers at this time. Finally, let's not forget how young they all were, to produce such work - genius in my book.
