|Even though their lead singer Michael was a pre-pubescent tyke at the height of the band's popularity, the Jackson 5 had a number of hits with their stirringly passionate ballads and love songs. Motown's 2009 LOVE SONGS series, released to coincide with Valentine's Day, compiles the best and best-known romantic material from the label's heavy hitters, and the Jackson 5 disc is no exception. "I'll Be There," "Can You Remember," and "Never Can Say Goodbye" are here, along with nine others. For anyone looking to have the Jackson 5's love songs in one place, this compilation is a good bet.|

BioThe Jackson 5
The Jackson 5 comprised five brothers, Jackie Jackson (b. Sigmund Esco Jackson, 4 May 1951, Gary, Indiana, USA), Tito Jackson (b. Toriano Adaryll Jackson, 15 October 1953, Gary, Indiana, USA), Jermaine Jackson (b. Jermaine LaJuane Jackson, 11 December 1954, Gary, Indiana, USA), Marlon Jackson (b. 12 March 1957, Gary, Indiana, USA) and Michael Jackson (b. 29 August 1958, Gary, Indiana, USA).
Raised in Gary, Indiana, USA, by their father Joe, a blues guitarist, they began playing local clubs in 1962, with youthful prodigy Michael as lead vocalist. Combining dance routines influenced by the Temptations with music inspired by James Brown, they first recorded for the Indiana-based Steeltown label before auditioning for Motown Records in 1968. Bobby Taylor recommended the group to Motown, although the company gave Diana Ross public credit for their discovery. A team of Motown writers known as the Corporation composed a series of songs for the group's early releases, all accentuating their youthful enthusiasm and vocal interplay. Their debut single for Motown, "I Want You Back", became the fastest-selling record in the company's history in 1969, and three of their next five singles also topped the American chart.
