    Jermaine made some great solo records starting back in the early seventies with this one, his first:

    Glen, so as you can see, Jermaine Jackson was no joke! He's had a pretty solid recording career that many wished they had.

  16. #16
    Jermaine was tearing it up in 1980 with this one too. "Burnin' Hot"

    He got a little help here from his sisters...Jermaine Jackson ft. La Toya & Rebbie "Let Me Tickle Your Fancy" [Soul Train 1982

    I so loved that "Let Me Tickle Your Fancy" performance on Soul Train. LaToya and Rebbie are lovely. They were such a good-looking family. It's a shame what they did to themselves.

    I saw them perform the song first on the Merv Griffin Show and it came off very well. I bought the album with the 1950s themed cover.

    This video received a lot of play on MTV back in the day:

    Yes! I thought I remembered that Jermaine and sisters performed it together on more than one show. Thanks. I loved that song.

    I also remember that Chicago radio stations were so segregated at that time that whenever it played on a 'pop' music station the announcer would say it was "Jermaine Jackson and DEVO."

    I had to go wayyyy back in Jermaine Jackson history for this one:

    Glen, just to stray off subject for one moment. Do you remember a group called Five Special out of Detroit?

  32. #32
    He does an admirable job with this remake:

    Hey marv2, just now seeing this but yes I do remember Five Special but I had no idea that they were from Detroit,. Those were some singing brothers there

    Yeah they are from Detroit. Ron Bank's brother Brian sang with them too. They should have gone further than they did. Still love "Why Leave Us Alone"...the 12" LOL

  37. #37
    Yes. And now he and"the brothers" are reduced to "free outdoor concerts"! Wah?!!

  38. #38
    Just listened to his son, Jaafar's track, "Got Me Singing." Supposedly the video was shot in Brazil. The track title says it all. Should call it Can't Be Singing! Plus why is he "dancing" on a roof? In a puddle of water? Needless to say, that was all I could take. "Cause I can't stands no more"!! Jermaine should be proud, however. Like father like son.

    Jermaine's "Take Me In Your Arms (Rock Me A Little While)" from his first Motown solo album, "Jermaine".
