Editorial Reviews

The Jackson 5: Live At The Forum is a new 2-CD set released June 22 that uncovers an amazing chapter from the phenomenal career of Michael Jackson and his brothers in the J5: their extraordinary performances from the Los Angeles Forum, recorded in June 1970 and August 1972--the first at the start of their rapid ascent to stardom, the second when they became established icons. These brilliant shows have not been released in any form until now, the 40th anniversary of the 1970 show. Live At The Forum features earth-shaking live performances of the group's best-known hits - "I Want You Back," "ABC," "The Love You Save," "I'll Be There," "Never Can Say Goodbye" and more. Single B-sides "I Found That Girl" and "I'm So Happy" and such surprises as album cuts "Bridge Over Troubled Water" and "Zip A Dee Do Dah," plus songs not released by the J5, including covers of James Brown's "There Was a Time" and the Isley Brothers' "It's Your Thing," are part of the shows. The 1972 show also features a full, fantastic set of Michael's solo hits, including "Got To Be There" and "Ben," his brand new single at the time, as well as a solo spot by Jermaine. Disc 1 includes the Forum show recorded June 20, 1970, when the group broke existing box office records at the venue. The J5 were on their first national tour, and the show is a unique document of the growing "Jacksonmania" gripping the globe. Disc 2 is the complete show from August 26, 1972, just three days before Michael's 14th birthday. Each disc includes a bonus track: an unreleased full live version of "Mama's Pearl," from the concert that became part of the 1971 TV special Goin' Back To Indiana, closes Disc 1; "I Wanna Be Where You Are," from the soundtrack album to Save The Children, makes its CD debut at the end of Disc 2. Live At The Forum is housed in a collector's digi-pak with rare photos, collectable postcards of each Jackson brother and insightful liner notes by Mark Anthony Neal.

5.0 out of 5 stars Buy this cd. It's amazing!. July 2, 2010
Format:Audio CD|Verified Purchase
Finally! The J5 "Live at the Forum". What I love most about these performances is that they were recorded when the Jackson 5 were in their prime. The electricity and energy leaps right off of the first song. You almost feel that you are right there with them on stage. Something that impressed me alot was the musicianship of the band. Think about it, Tito & Jermaine were ages 16 and 15 at the 1970 concert. They, along with Johnny (drums), Ronnie (keyboards) and even Jackie (tambourine) were tight! Compared to the studio versions of the songs they sang, this was very good for a group of teenagers to replicate those sounds. What struck me the most was by the time they returned to The Forum in 1972, you can tell that their skills had tremendously improved. Jermaine (bass) was killing it the entire 1972 show. OMG! And Tito was holding it all together on Lead Guitar. I absolutely loved the transition out of "Brand New Thing" (pause 3 seconds) straight into "I Want You Back". It was perfect. The audience didn't have time to catch their breathe before they hit you again with hit after hit after hit. I also loved the songs (B-sides, album tracks) that they performed during the '72 show. All of Michael & Jermaine's solo stuff was great. Marlon & Jackie have incredible stage pressence.The group as a whole was phenomenal. You can tell by my review that I'm a huge J5 fan. I always will be. I grew up to their music, tv appearances, Saturday morning cartoon show, etc. etc. Simply put, they were the definition of "Musical Legends". When I think about the artists & performers of today's generation, I think about how lucky I was to be a kid growing up listening to and watching the Jackson 5. And what more can you say that hasn't already been said about Michael. Read more ›

5.0 out of 5 stars Many Songs Better than the Studio Version June 22, 2010
Format:MP3 Music
This album is a MUST have for anyone who has an appreciation for the Jackson 5 or MJ. I love Michael's later works, but I really think that the spirit he showed on this album is so passionate and so fierce, and that I'm slowly beginning to love this young Michael even more.

A few songs that I thought was better than the studio version are "Ain't No Sunshine," "Who's Lovin' You," and "Got to be There."

It's so well sung! On the song "Who's Lovin You," it's crazy hard to believe that he was only 11 years old. He sang it with such sincerity like he's experienced a grown man's love. Listening to this album made me appreciate even more what a legend he is. Nobody could do what he did at that age, and nobody since has changed the music world like MJ.

Btw,check out [...], the official page, for better snippets and really well written stories about the show.

5.0 out of 5 stars Simply Wonderful July 3, 2010
Format:Audio CD|Verified Purchase
I am so glad I bought this CD. These two concerts are like a snapshot in time. The first one, from June 1970 shows an energetic and excited group, just releasing The Love You Save. There are several covers, which the J5 pull off like seasoned musicians. Michael commands the stage, a clear leader. He is so charming. I was laughing and smiling during the whole thing.

The second concert is from 1972, just 3 days before Michael's 14th birthday. His voice is changing, but he nails Ben, Ain't No Sunshine and I Wanna Be Where You Are. Jermaine's voice too is smooth and romantic.

The CD includes a booklet with some great photos and an essay. There is also a pull-out with a photo of each of the brothers and some personal tidbits about each one.

I hope that J5 and MJ fans are aware of this CD - it's a must have. I was in love with J5 before and now I am madly in love!

5.0 out of 5 stars Hip-O-Select does it again July 7, 2010
Format:Audio CD|Verified Purchase
First of all, let me get out one thing out of the way: this set is not cheap. Even amidst a recession, spending over $30 for a CD may seem crazy. But with past Hip-O-Select reissues such as Diana Ross' Touch Me In the Morning (Expanded Edition), Meet the Supremes (Expanded Edition) and The Miracles "Depend on Me: The Early Albums", you know you're getting something special. And this is a special package, and definitely worth the price.

Featuring two performances from the early '70s, this album captures the Jackson 5 at their peak. LIke other reviewers have noted, the electric energy from these performances bounce off the speakers as if you're transported back to the early '70s. Listening to Michael Jackson in his early days is a revelation - onstage, he was charming, outgoing, funny and confident, unlike the reticent stage performer he became late in his life. What's most impressive is how tight a band the Jackson 5 was. When they cover soul classics such as "Feelin' Alright" and "It's Your Thing", they do not come off as cheesy or trying too hard; they are actually funky and soulful.

It's hard to believe these performances have been sitting around for so long waiting to be released. It makes me wonder what other undiscovered treasures lay waiting in the Motown vaults.

If you're a fan of Michael Jackson, the Jackson 5 or Motown, you must buy this set.

5.0 out of 5 stars Can't get enough of the J5!!!! September 30, 2010
Format:Audio CD|Verified Purchase
I absolutely LOVE the Live at the Forum cd. I wish it were in DVD format...I would have loved to have seen them performing...I just have to use my imagination and picture it in my mind. It amazes me how professional the group was and the great thing is that they were professional even before signing on to Motown records - their dad made sure of that! I love to hear them blending their voices together; it's like listening to opera! I guess that is why I have always wanted the Jacksons to perform together as a group and had been awaiting the day they would do that professionally since they broke up long ago. I'm not talking about them just getting together to sing old songs but to produce new ones and present them to the public - but that is a dream long since lost and that now can never come to be! I do hope that the Brothers will produce something soon...if they want to and are able to do it. Thank you Jackson brothers for giving us such great music these past 40 plus years and may God richly bless your family as you continue to share the musical skills you have through other means.
