If Michael Jackson had retired instead of going solo and umpteen-platinum, he would still be a revered figure in pop and soul history for the action-packed singles he cut as the diminutive, Frankie Lymon-like frontman (sic) for one of Motown's true trailblazing acts. Some would argue he was never better. More extensive anthologies of the Jacksons' hit-laden career have been compiled since this stopgap disc was issued in 1971, but this is still where listeners can get the primordial prime 5 (alas, without those awesome dance steps) without having to wade through some pretty uneven LPs.

Highlights include the infectious "ABC" and "I Want You Back," the emotional "I'll Be There," and "The Love You Save," a phase-shifting tour de force.
"I Want You Back" is a 1969 song, and the debut major-label single for The Jackson 5 which became a number-one hit for the band and the Motown label in early 1970. The song, along with a b-side cover of Smokey Robinson & the Miracles' "Who's Lovin' You", was the only single from the first Jackson 5 album, Diana Ross Presents the Jackson 5. It went to number one on the soul singles chart for four weeks and held the number-one position on the Billboard Hot 100 singles chart for the week ending January 31, 1970."I Want You Back" was ranked 121st on Rolling Stone's list of The 500 Greatest Songs of All Time.

During this period, Gordy came across "I Want to Be Free", a composition written by West Coast-based Motown producers Freddie Perren, Alphonzo Mizell, and Deke Richards for Gladys Knight. At first, Gordy wanted the three producers to instead record the song with Diana Ross, but soon decided to give the song "the Frankie Lymon treatment" and record it with the Jackson Five. Richards, Mizell, and Perren began re-working the song, and Gordy and Taylor also became involved in the revision process. The result was "I Want You Back", which became the Jackson Five's first Motown single, and the first of four Jackson 5 songs that went to number-one on the Billboard Hot 100 chart in 1970.

"I Want You Back" became the blueprint for future Jackson 5 recordings: there was now less of an emphasis on traditional soul, and more prominent elements of doo-wop and bubblegum pop music. In fact, Motown's publicity department dubbed the Jackson 5's sound "bubblegum soul".

After signing the Jackson Five in March 1969, Motown CEO Berry Gordy brought the group to Motown's Hitsville U.S.A. studio in Detroit, Michigan, and assigned them to work with Bobby Taylor as their producer. Taylor, who had personally brought the Jacksons to Motown, began having Michael, Jermaine, and Jackie record cover versions of current and past soul compositions, including many in the Motown catalog

Record produced Bobby Taylor didn’t miss it. He was the first professional to work with the guys. Motown Records didn’t miss it. They produced the JACKSON 5’s first single, “I WANT YOU BACK

"ABC" is a 1970 number-one hit song by The Jackson 5. It was written with the same design as "I Want You Back", and was first heard on American Bandstand (on the ABC network) in February 1970. "ABC" knocked The Beatles' song "Let It Be" out of the number one spot on the Billboard Hot 100 in 1970 and was also number one on the soul singles chart for four weeks.

"ABC" was the first single from the second album of The Jackson 5, ABC and is considered one of the band's signature songs. It is one of the shortest titles to hit #1, and is the first song alphabetically in the list of #1 hits of the Billboard Hot 100.

Although Taylor would briefly join the Jacksons in California, he did not receive credit for working on the group's early singles such as "I Want You Back" and "ABC" alongside Gordy's team known as The Corporation.
