This has been a year of great loss for me personally. In addition, I also share the loss of musical icon Michael Joe Jackson with the world! I will close out this year of Motown 50 with a J5 classic that I love.
This particular song is a fave from the first Motown LP that introduced the Jackson 5 to the world in 1969. This entire LP brings back some of the best ever memories of my teenage years and I hope you enjoy listening to it as much as I do. Let me know what you think?
Trivia: Did you know that before the brothers joined Motown and released this first LP that they had released a single? Well they did and it was called “Big Boy.” This minor local hit single, on Steel Town Records, was backed with “You’ve Changed!” Yes, the fellas originally recorded this song on 7/13/67 and it was released as the B-Side to their first single on 1/31/68. Have a listen and tell me what you think about this original?
