The Jackson 5 = Soul

August 13, 2010

Been doing some digging on these last few slow nights of the summer and finding lots of great stuff. Notably and surprisingly I’ve been finding some great gems from The Jackson 5.
They have quite a catalog that spanned many years. You’d think there’d be a lot of cheezy psuedo-rock n’ roll and lousy covers, and don’t get me wrong- there are a few, but most of their stuff is really solid, funky, tightly-produced and played SOUL, and nearly all of it is ass-shakingly danceable.

The following tracks are both from their 1975 LP Moving Violation:

MP3: The Jackson 5- Body Language (Do The Love Dance)

MP3: The Jackson 5- Honey Love


The Jackson 5 TV show. I didn’t know that actors did the voices.
