Product Description


Chock full of hits and nicely assembled, this two-CD collection focuses on Michael before he left the Motown cocoon, hooked up with Quincy Jones, and changed the sound of black pop with Off the Wall. Does the relatively safe vibe and the less-than-groundbreaking nature of the music make these songs any less enjoyable or memorable? No way--especially for boomers who grew up with MJ. All the hits are here, from the chirpy smash "Rockin' Robin" to the yearning "Got to Be There" (check those high notes!) and a handful of J5 tracks (chief among them the impassioned "I'll Be There"). For fans of R&B and for Michael-maniacs, this is a must. --Amy Linden

Michael Jackson will always Be to My Ears.as a Kid not many Before or since can hang with His Depth&Raw Soul.He is truly one of the Greatest Artists Ever.these Songs showcase a Young Brother who just had that "IT" that you can't plan in a Boardroom.He has that Gut-Bucket kind of it that Legends are made of.I'll always Be down with the King of Pop.He truly is One of a Kind.The Brother is still Badd!!

5.0 out of 5 stars Jammin' June 4 2004
Format:Audio CD
Michael was an incredible child prodigy. These 2 CDs I think summs up the reason why the Jackson 5 were so extremely popular and gives the basis for why he himself became the megastar that he became. I was really taken aback while listening to these songs and just couldn't believe someone so young had that amazing ability. I could have cried when I thought about what he has become and then thought about the reason, this wonderful music and all the hard work he had to do at such a very young age. But moving on, some of my favorites are mostly on the 2nd Cd, Music and Me, One Day in Your Life, Happy, Call on Me and many more. The Jackson 5 classics are I'll Be there, Never can say goodbye and an unknown J5 song, Too Late to change the Time (which is wonderful). This compilation is a must for MJ fans and for anyone that wants to hear some great soul music from Motown.

4.0 out of 5 stars Heaven Sent April 10 2004
By A Customer
Format:Audio CD
I have been a fan of Michael's ever since he began. These songs bring back such good memories. However, I think the J5 songs could have been left out, and replaced with other Michael songs. Either from albums or previously unreleased stuff. Small complaint though. "Love is Here and Now You're Gone" has always been one of my fave songs, I think Mike's version outdoes the Supremes. "We've Got A Good Thing Going" also is a highlight. It suprises me that I still love and want to listen to these songs. The songs taken from the "Forever Michael" album also are great. I would love to see that album on cd with unreleased cuts. I know there has to be some of those lying aroung Motown vaults. Funny how, if I never hear "Billie Jean" again, it's ok with me. But these songs, are the songs of my childhood and preteen years and sound as fresh today as 30 years ago.

5.0 out of 5 stars The Early Michael Jackson Dec 20 2003
Format:Audio CD
I love Michael's motown years. First of all, this is the only comprehensive compilation that summarizes Michael's years at Motown. There are 44-hits that spread over 2 discs. Not only does it have his solo hits, but it also has those Jackson 5 hits. It's a great addition to your Michael Jackson collection. One of my favorites on this collection is "Got To Be There". It also has a lot of unknown songs like "Happy", "Cinderella Stay Awhile", and "One Day In Your Life". The booklet has a lot of liner notes and rare pictures. Buy this in addition to Jackson 5-Ultimate Collection.

5.0 out of 5 stars FOREVER MICHAEL!! THANK GOD THEY RELEASED THIS!! July 11 2003
Format:Audio CD
Let me just say that I am so glad I found this CD! I am a late thrities individual who remembers every one of these hits, some of them performed with the Jackson Five. For those of you who don't know the rest of them; Wer'e almost there, Just a Little Bit of You, Cinderella Stay Awhile, and a few others were from a album called FOREVER MICHAEL, which I bought when I was 8 years old (and still have, scratches and all, I wore that sucker out!) I had wanted the powers that be to put all of those songs on CD and they have minus 1 or 2 cuts (Where is the song DAPPER DAN?)
This brings back great memories, songs that were cute, simple this was Michael they way most of us remember him. If you have an ear for nostalgia, when songs were simple get this CD!

5.0 out of 5 stars I've heard th whole thing and I'm blown away! March 11 2003
Format:Audio CD
Michael Jackson can still sing, but this part of his career, he displays his God-given angelic voice. Throughout the CD you can hear his voice change a lot in songs like "Just A Little Bit of You", "Take Me Back" and "Melodie". His voice is like no other! He pours his heart out and you can feel it! This is singing at it's best. Songs like "Melodie" just make me feel good. The unreleased singles are classics!!!

5.0 out of 5 stars Good for All ! April 29 2002
By Chloe
Format:Audio CD
Till I got this album I had never heard Michael Jackson's earlier years. I loved it and now have an appreciation for older music. These two CD's may be a little expensive but it's worth it. You'll have a great time jammin' to these oldies

5.0 out of 5 stars You know what you're getting from Michael! July 6 2001
By A*
Format:Audio CD
Michael's voice as a child has never been out done till this day! Starting out as a soul singer he had the range and emotion to make any song pop with angst and beauty at the same time! Just listen to the closing lines of ABC! But the rare tracks are amazing too - the haunting and most poigant is "When I Come Of Age" Michael sings of his hopes and dreams of his adult years and rather he will be a "mighty man" or an "astronaut" We all know the drama which is Michael and this song is just amazing and is fitting for a man who dreamed of conquering childhood fancy only to live life as achild themself! Michael career has been groundbreaking but this collection only hints at his true genius as a soul singer in the likes of Marvin Gaye and Smokey Robinson it is expressed in more depth in the Jackson 5 SoulSation box set! This is a great starter kit for the experience enjoy!
