Product Description

The title of 1975's Best of Michael Jackson seems something like an unfunny joke in the wake of the global success that the star found with Off the Wall and Thriller just a few years later. Best offers a handful of charted singles ranging from the incandescent "I Wanna Be Where You Are" and "Got to Be There" to the ephemeral "Rockin' Robin" and the tedious rat-love flick-theme "Ben." The rest is a mishmash of workaday sentiment ("With a Child's Heart," "Music and Me") and a few tracks of the proverbial pleasant-but-unexceptional work that the solo Jackson would soon transcend. --Rickey Wright

This had to be my favorite album!I really fell in love with Michael's voice at the tender age of 12(now I'm 16).The first song on the album "Got to be there" had to be my favorite,favorite song then.It made me feel magic,it had me mesmorized.I would just have this feeling come over me every time I would listen to it,like you wouldn't believe.The other songs I liked were "Ben","With a child's heart","I wanna be where you are","We're almost there" and "Music and me".I remember listening to that cassette alot when I was younger.I really enjoyed it.It brings back so many memories for me.If you want to listen to some nice (young) Michael Jackson songs (along with his brothers),get this album.It's nice!

This is a collection of songs from Michael Jackson's solo work for Motown. The early hits like "Got To Be There", the brilliant "I Wanna Be Where You Are", "Rocking Robin" and his first solo number one "Ben" are variations of his work with The Jackson Five. They were produced by The Corporation and they are tremendous singles. Some of the later work like "Happy", "Just A Little Bit Of You" and "One Day In Your Life" are not up to high standards of the early work, but are still quite good. If you want to get an idea of what a young Michael Jackson sounded like, then this is a great place to start.

This is a good collection of Mike's early work, though it can not compare to his later success. Neat to hear the changes in his voice from the first track to the two 1975 tracks. A personal favorite on here is MORNING GLOW, a sweet sad song (nowhere near as much as BEN is). Even if you're not a hardcore fan of Mike, this is a good enough collection to taste some of his solo Motown work.

This Motown Compact Classics release is Michael Jackson at his vocal best, early in his career when all of that pent up emotion poured forth in the lyrics of his songs, rather than the dance videos that accompanied them. From the beautiful Got to Be There and With a Child's Heart to the lively and very successful cover of Rockin' Robin, this collection will have you singing along almost immediately.
One caveat: Anyone who has ever had a pet rodent should approach the ballad "Ben" with caution. You'll be in tears before its halfway through.

Michael Jackson is the best entartainer ever. Everything he does is gold. I do hope one day people who now think wrong about him will change their opinion. He deserves more than the title "King of Pop", 'cause throughout the years he managed to give a new sens to what music means. I ask people who share my opinion about this great artist to mail me at: victor_p@starnets.ro

This album reveals Michaels purity and natural tallent at his young age. He has always been very proffessional and any album that he has made is the best of his work. He makes it that, he makes sure its the best of his and his bands ability. Hes the best

Many people who like the way Michael Jackson sang with the Jackson 5 will like this album very much. The Golden Globe winning song "Ben" is on this album and is my favorite song here. Many of the other tracks are tracks that people who like the sounds of the Jackson 5 will like a lot. I would suggest listening to the Jackson 5, and if you like their music you'll like this album also. Even if you don't like the Jackson 5 that much, you can still find some songs in here which are very good.
