Jackson 5: Happy 40th Anniversary!
On December 18th, 1969, Motown released the first ever
Jackson 5 album : "Diana Ross Presents the Jackson 5". It included the smash
hit "I Want You Back", and the greatest B-side ever, "Who’s Loving You".
The Jackson 5 were more than a huge hit recording act. They were an
international multi-media phenomenon who ushered Motown into its second
decade with a stunningly fresh sound that has often been imitated but

before the eyes of the world and their musical legacy remains a remarkable

Richards, Fonce Mizell, Freddie Perren and Bobby Taylor.
