I want to say congrats to Harry Weigner at Motown for re-releasing the Jackson 5 catalog, with some albums that never have been on Cd before.
This disc includes the first two Jackson 5 albums "DIANA ROSS PRESENTS THE JACKSON 5" (1969) and "ABC" (1970). DIANA ROSS PRESENTS THE JACKSON 5 is an amazing debut album. It features the massive hit "I Want You Back" and "Who's Loving You". The album is produced by the corporation and Bobby Taylor (who was fired after the completion of this album). The album opens with such a fun and happy song "Zip-A-Dee-Doo-Dah" which shows what the group already knows in regards to studio work. Other notable tracks from the first album include the only other original song on the album "Nobody" which is a very exciting number to say the least, "chained" which is a cover of the Marvin Gaye song that Michael just tears up, "You've Changed" which the group recorded a few years prior in their hometown of Gary Indiana for the small town label "STEELTOWN" and is available on the many different STEELTOWN compilations available (which all basically have the same stuff) but this version is far more riviting!!! Jermaine takes lead on "My Cherie Amour" and "(I Know) I'm Losing You" which are covers of Stevie Wonder and the Temptations. The group also reworks the Four Tops "Standing in the Shadows of Love" in a much more structured way then the tops did years prior.
The ABC album features the mega hits "ABC", "The Love You Save" and the Jermaine hit "I Found that Girl" but the album contains many more fabulous tracks. Michael brings "2-4-6-8" to life (especially during the bridge!!!

Below you will find a lengthy analysis of the opening song on this record "I want you back." If a single song can generate this kind of response, imagine the musical content of the entire 21 song record.

This song obliterates me. All the performances are incredible, including, to quote a friend, Michael's astounding, dumbfounding lead vocal.

The bass part sounds to me as if it came straight from the composer and arranger, but in any matter it's stuffed full with inventive ideas and super fonky! Given the calculated nature of this recording I would expect the arranger to have worked out the bass part note for note. The recording is a careful tapestry of many sounds that blend together to give the overall effect. The intro is a good example. The melody played by the bass is wonderful, but that melody is doubled by other instruments plus other things are woven around that melody, all indicating that the arranger wrote it all out note for note, the bass player serving to faithfully play the arrangement.

(Un)fortunately, any excellence in other portions of this song is obscured by Michael's unbelievable vocal. So much stuff, so much soul, so much range and flexibility. This vocal is way in the unbelievable range for any artist. But to come from a brand new 11 year old is, as my friend put it so well, "dumbfounding." (If this selection does not feature sound clips, look at other Jackson 5 records here on Amazon to hear the mentioned snippets.)

*He sounds a little hoarse and that increases the authority.

*The way he uses subtle, rhythmic vibrato on the word "me" in the phrase "won't you please let me back in your heart." (Hear this on the Amazon snippet.)

*The pause and surprise attack on the word "back" in the same phrase.

I am 40 years old and still listening to this album. I still can't get over how absolutley fabulous these songs are. 2-4-6-8 has a hook that I can't get out of my head. Don't Know Why I Love You is classic J-5. Michael wails on this one, nice cover of a Stevie Wonder song. Of course..ABC and The Love You Save are the instant classics on this album..but howabout "I'll Bet You" and "The Young Folks"..The Young Folks is a cover of a Supremes song, but the J5's version demolishes it. My all time fave though is "One More Chance".. I think I have played this song over a thousand times. What a great ballad. Nice melody and vocal performance. This would have gotten 5 stars, bought I still am not fond of "True Love Can Be Beautiful" and "Never HAd a Dream Come True". Their next great lp was "Maybe Tomorrow".

i have been a j-5 fan since i first heard i want you back thats why when i found out that umg/motown was re-releasing these albums on c.d i was estatic!! DIANA ROSS PRESENTS encompasses the j-5's unique harmonies as well as michael and jermaine'ssoul stirring leads BOBBY TAYLOR and crew deserve a standing ovation from the funk of zip a dee doo dah&i know im losing you to the improvisations of my cherie amour and standing in the shadows of love the j-5 shineWHO'S LOVIN YOU which has been a ghetto classic for the last thirty years still stands as michaels most soulful recording to date its as if he was BORN TO ENTERTAIN! so take a listen and see if u agree p.s my fave song on here is YOUV'E CHANGED....
ABC. the 2nd j-5 release this cd encompasses5 of my fave j-5 tunes ONE MORE CHANCE(another ghetto classic) ABC,THE LOVE YOU SAVE,I FOUND THAT GIRL&ILL BET YOU.growing up i only wanted to hear the j-5 many years later i found p-funk and bootsy maybe thats why i love ill bet you(written by GEORGE CLINTON..)2-4-6-8 another fave simply put IF YOU ARE AN J-5- FAN FROM BACK IN THE DAY BUY THESE C.D'S LIKE I JUST DID..lock yourself in a private space and see if you can still sing along.and remember 1970 ! if uare a new j-5 fan HERES THE STARTING POINT! MUCH LOVE!
