    I like these but wish the labels could have been Tamla, Gordy and Motown earlier designs.

  4. I don't know...the packaging looks a bit "generic." The typography looks like what someone who wasn't alive back then, thinks has that 60's or 70's look. I also wish, like lockhartgary, these had the original Motown/Tamla/Gordy logos.

    Michael Jackson "& The Jackson 5? A bit of revisionist group-naming? I'm amazed someone hasn't started in with David Ruffin & The Temptations.

    Looks like they are treating them separately, spotlighting the group's career and Michael's solo career. That's the vibe I'm getting for the photo.

    I agree. What better way than to use the actual labels the music came out on. Oh well, maybe some millennial was in charge of the artwork.

    Is it really revisionist though to say Michael Jackson and The Jackson 5 if Diana Ross introduced them as such in 1969?

    I hadn't thought about it that way. I think you're right.

    I think the group was officially The Jackson Five. That's how all of us kids ever knew them. We never said Michael Jackson & The Jackson Five. Plus- it doesn't really make logical sense; if you say M.J. AND The Jackson Five, it sounds as if there were 5 other guys backing Michael.

    Diana Ross's introduction aside, the albums, the press and, at least where I grew up, the fans always referred to the group as a group, The Jackson Five and not as a lead singer and others. In fact, the Jackson Five had a group logo that was sort of shorthand: J5 (with a little heart on the tail end of the "5".) I never recall seeing "Michael Jackson J5"

    But Michael was also a solo artist so it fits in with that. If they'd used a Jermaine solo too then it could be Michael Jackson, Jermaine Jackson and The Jackson 5.

    It's not a problem to title it Michael Jackson & the Jackson Five when it has both Jackson Five and Michael solo tracks. I would have a major problem with it if it was all Jackson Five songs and they called it "Michael Jackson & the Jackson Five."

    It's the same issue I had with Motown in the 80s when they took a revisionist approach by reissuing early Supremes albums under the Diana Ross & The Supremes moniker. If it was an album released prior to their 1967 Greatest Hits album it should be reissued as The Supremes as that's how it was originally released. Anthologies and Compilation Box Sets are totally different because you are using various recordings over the course of years.
