A little background history about [lastfm link_type=”artist_info”]The Jackson 5[/lastfm]:

[lastfm link_type=”artist_info”]The Jackson 5[/lastfm] (also spelled The Jackson Five or The Jackson 5ive, abbreviated as J5, and later known simply as The Jacksons) was an American popular music quintet from Gary, Indiana. The group, active from 1964 to 1990, regularly played from a repertoire of R&B, soul, funk, and later disco. Considered “one of the biggest phenomenons in pop music” during the early 1970s, the Jackson 5 are also notable for launching the career of their lead singer, the late Michael Jackson.

The primary members of the group were all the sons of Katherine and Joseph Jackson: Jackie JacksonTito JacksonJermaine JacksonMarlon JacksonMichael Jackson, and Randy Jackson. Joseph Jackson formed the band in 1964 and served as its manager, with Jackie, Tito, Jermaine, and unrelated youths Reynaud Jones and Milton Hite comprising its original lineup. Within a year, Michael and Marlon joined the band, and Michael became lead singer as the group developed a following in the eastern and midwestern United States during the mid-1960s. Signed to the Motown label from 1969 to 1975, and to CBS Records (as “The Jacksons“) from 1975 until their disbanding in 1990, the Jackson 5 were one of the most popular groups of the era and became the first recording act to have their first four major label singles (I Want You Backclear The Jackson 5 On Turntable TuesdayABCclear The Jackson 5 On Turntable TuesdayThe Love You Save, and I’ll Be There) reach the top of the American charts.
