The Jackson brothers' second album is more solid than you might expect from even the great singles act that they already were. In addition to radio classics (the title track, "The Love You Save," and "I Found That Girl"), the quintet and their production team apply themselves to fine versions of other Motown stars' hits and a tough version of Funkadelic's funny psychedelic-soul nugget "I'll Bet You." The preteen Michael emotes more than credibly on the likes of Stevie Wonder's "Don't Know Why I Love You" and Smokey's "(Come 'Round Here) I'm the One You Need." Like Eric B. and Rakim did later, he might have declared "I ain't no joke," but his performances here did it for him. --Rickey Wright

After all these years, this is still one of my favorite albums. Besides the hits theres' several great album tracks, including "2-4-6-8", "I'll Bet You", "I Found That Girl"(the B-side of "The Love You Save" for those who didn't know)and a amazing cover of "La La Means I Love You". I'm proud to say that this was the first album I ever owned. The first five albums the Jackson 5 released are all great, but this one will always be #1 in my book.

The Jackson Five were the last of the great Motown acts from the label's halcyon days. Their first release showed they had talent, but ABC confirmed that these Indiana kids were something special. Combining the group's perfect vocals, The Corporation's supreme production and a stellar list of songs, ABC is an R&B gem. The album contains two number one singles, the title cut and "The Love You Save", and they are only the tip of the iceberg. What made Michael so impressive of a vocalist at the tender age of 12 is that he could interpret songs and convey feelings that someone of his age probably have never felt. On "One More Chance" he pleads for a chance at redemption, in Stevie Wonder's "Never Had A Dream Come True" he sings of failure and missed chances, in the plaintive "Don't Know Why I Love You" he sings of blind devotion and he expresses the joys of pure and unrequited love in "True Love Can Be Beautiful". "I'll Bet You" has a Sly Stone funkified soul sound and sounds like nothing else the band has done and they do a good job on the Delfonics' "La La (Means I Love You)". Jermaine takes over the lead vocal duties on "I Found That Girl". Even though they could sing about more mature themes, they were still just basically teenagers and they show that on the nursery rhyme like "2-4-6-8" and the declaration of their youth in "The Young Folks". Motown proclaimed that they were the "Sound of Young America" and this was never truer than with the J5 and ABC is the pinnacle of the band's career with the label.

What can I say about the great Jackson 5 that hasn't already been said? Their second album, ABC, is a timeless classic and sounds as fresh and vibrant today as it did in 1970. 12-year-old Michael Jackson's vocals explode like dynamite - full of soul and energy - while Marlon, Jermaine, Tito and Jackie provide smooth background harmonies. The title track and "The Love You Save" topped the charts but this album contains one great song after another. Michael pours his soul into "Don't Know Why I Love You", Jermaine delivers sweetly on "I Found That Girl", they groove on their cover of Funkadelic's "I'll Bet You". I could go on but that's how amazing this album is. The Jackson 5 set the trend that other pop music family groups followed.

This album is the finest of its genre. I still get goosebumps listening to Michael, Jermaine and the rest of his brothers harmonize. Still in its true form, the songs ABC and The Love you Save sounds timeless as its debut in 1970. Also check out "I'll bet you", "2 4 6 8" and "La La means I love you". Believe me, it is a must-have CD on anyone's list! Buy this album!

I bought this for my niece as she was doing a hand-clapping version of ABC quite well but pretty slowly - a complicated clapping pattern. We're not talking "Miss Mary Mack." I never totally learned her clap-ABC although my quick-witted father seemed to get it. I thought she would like to know the original song and knew that someday she'd be good enough to clap or patsch it in time to the tempo of the hit record. This CD indeed has that song.

Earlier I had given her older brother an album of the same name but then it had a much better selection, which I own as well, and often play in the bathroom. But please check the set-list when you are buying ABC if you also want the album.

An amazing album and my favorite of all the Jackson 5 albums. Motown experimented quite a bit with this album and you can tell by the great variety of sounds in it, there's soul, funk, gospel, psychedelic, folk, caribbean and blues heard in this fantastically versatile album. Standout tracks are "ABC", "2-4-6-8", "Don't Know Why I love You", "True Love Can Be Beautiful", "The Love You Save", "La-La Means I Love You", "I'll Bet You" & "One More Chance" among others. Michael was only 11 when this album was recorded an released but he sing with such confidence, complexity, heart and soul it's hard to believe a cat this young could be this good but he is. Stevie once said Mike sung with so much power and force that he thought his voice would break and he couldn't be more right particularly on the J5's cover of his classic "Don't Know Why", Mike sings this song with so much power and emotion that you can hear his voice starting to crack like old school singers of the 60's tended to do, and the Jackson brothers melodies are flawless on this album and Jermaine is masterful as well.. Raw real talent, the uptempo numbers just explode off this album and slow jams just stick to you. There have been many kid's groups throughout the years and decades, but none ever as good as the Jackson 5, they are the TRUE standard by which all kid groups are judged The crown jewel of J5 albums and their true masterpiece.
