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.
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!
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.
