The Jacksons is the eleventh studio album by the Jacksons, the band's first album for CBS and under the name "the Jacksons," following their seven-year tenure at Motown as "the Jackson 5". Jackson 5 member Jermaine Jackson stayed with Motown when his brothers broke their contracts and left for Epic, and he was replaced by youngest Jackson brother Randy. The album was released in 1976 for Epic Records and Philadelphia International Records as a joint venture.

The Jacksons is the first album by The Jacksons. Despite the promise, "The Jacksons" is hampered by derivative tracks and a lack of knowing what to do with the group, particularly lead singer, Michael Jackson. The big hit here, the jerky "Enjoy Yourself," perfectly captured Michael Jackson's late adolescence, with his newfound vocal tics and inflections. Show You the Way to Go" best captures the Philly sound, with a pretty melody and a great vocal from Michael.

Between 1981 and the release of Victory in 1984, Michael issued Thriller, which regularly heads the bestselling album of all time list. When the Jacksons’ own effort was released, it became apparent that he had made only token contributions to the record, and its commercial fortune suffered accordingly. State Of Shock’, which paired Michael with Mick Jagger, was a US hit, but sold in smaller quantities than expected.

The Jacksons is an African American band consisting Jackie, Mazi Tito, Marlon, Michael and Randy Jackson. In 1975 the brothers (The Jackson 5) planed to move from Motown to CBS records. Jermaine Jackson decided to stay at Motown. He was replaced by Randy Jackson in the end of 1975. Somehow the brothers had to change their name because Jackson 5 was owned by the Motown label. After the Jackson 5's concert in Philippines (02-1976) they changed their name to the Jacksons.

Goin' Places is the thirteenth studio album by The Jacksons It was released on October 8, 1977 on Epic Records. 1 Critical reception. Released in October 18, 1977, this would be the last Jacksons album released as a joint venture between Epic Records and Philadelphia International Records By 1978, The Jacksons would record primarily with Epic and would return to mainstream success with their next album, Destiny This is considered their lowest-selling album next to 2300 Jackson Street The album peaked at on the. Billboard 200, and at on the Billboard R&B albums chart and sold over half a million copies worldwide3

After the commercial reprieve of the innovative "Dancing Machine" single (and album of the same name), the Jackson 5's successful five-year relationship with Motown and Berry Gordy ended. Their last Motown effort, Moving Violation, had barely made a dent. After an acrimonious split, brother Jermaine Jackson stayed at Motown, and Gordy fought and won, keeping the Jackson 5 moniker. The Jacksons isn't only their Epic label debut, it's the first album to feature youngest brother Randy Jackson.

The Jacksons isn't only their Epic label debut, it's the first album to feature youngest brother Randy Jackson. To ensure chart success, the group was teamed with Philadelphia producers Kenneth Gamble and Leon Huff, as well as their staff of writers and players. Despite the promise, The Jacksons is hampered by derivative tracks and a lack of knowing what to do with the group, particularly lead singer, Michael Jackson.
