American R&B and Soul band The Jacksons, known also as Jackson 5, J5, Jackson 5ive. The band was formed in 1966 and consisted of Jackson brothers Jackie, Tito, Jermaine, Marlon and Michael. Jermaine was leading vocalist at first but later he was replaced by Michael who showed outstanding dancing and vocal abilities. At the end of 1969 Jacksons released their debut single “I Want You Back” and it reached the top spot of the Billboard Hot 100. The next three singles repeated the success and the band became the most commercially successful group in the American music industry in 1970 taking into account that they had to compete with Beatles’ “Let it Be” and with Shocking Blue’s “Venus” (She’s got it). As brothers were growing up they music became more dance oriented and they produced a disco hit “Dancing machine”. In 1975 all brothers except for Jermaine signed to another label and the band changed the name from Jacksons 5 to The Jacksons. From our site you can download the hit collection by Jacksons in mp3.
