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.

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 ›

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.

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!

It does take you back to the 70s. I'm a child of the 80s, but I gotta tell you I felt like I was in the audience.

The only negative I'd say is they play the songs soooooo fast the times on the songs are shorter. LIke some 5 minute studio songs are 2 minutes on here. That's how they played 23 songs at a venue.

My only negative is that "Stand" didn't make it on here. They explain it in the booklet or on the back that the sounds weren't working or something.

Booklets!!!!! NOT booklet. Booklets plural. Loads of pictures and good researched information. It seems like the info came from a true fan that recalled a LOT of details about the concerts. I think it said something about each of the times the Jackson 5 came back to this venue, the music and such got better and better. (Like more money was put into this group as the hits got bigger).

Great cd. Now I'm looking for the Victory tour live dvd and cd.

If I could just get my tape player fixed in my van. My kids and I spend a lot of time in my van, and the music played by the radio stations has been a very negative influence on my oldest, as it was on me when I was a teen. So I thought outside the box, remembered that the music on the radio was a playlist by someone else, a pervert if you ask me, and I'm making my own playlist on my ipod for when the kids are with me. There's a disc jockey, named Lady B, and she is a wonderful person, she gave a free talk about how hip hop has changed, for the worse, and that there used to be a divide between the children's world and the adults world, but the music has removed that divide and that's why we are getting inappropriate behavior from our kid. So since I'm not a parent that will let a perv control the music my kids listen too, I'm the disc jockey for the radio station in my van. Right now they have to watch kid movies because the radio is banned as unsuitable for children until I get my tape player fixed. I don't have an audio jack. Furthermore, Dr. Kunjufu mentioned that the tv has given our children access to adult problems. I think I'm on the right trail, even though I feel alone in assuming this responsibliity of making my children's world safe.
