Als im November 1976 das elfte Studioalbum der Jackson-Brüder in den Plattenläden erscheint, kommt es zu einem Wendepunkt. Zum ersten Mal veröffentlicht die Gruppe, die etwas ins Hintertreffen geraten war, nicht mehr beim Label Motown, mit dem sie ein Herz und eine Seele waren, sondern bei CBS und seiner Filiale Epic. Obwohl Michael vier Jahre zuvor mit Got To Be There seine Solokarriere bei Berry Gordys Label gestartet hatte, führt die finanzielle und künstlerische Kraftmeierei zwischen Motown und der Jackson Familie zu einer Scheidung, die erheblichen Krach verursacht. Einzig und allein Jermaine (der die Tochter des Motown-Chefs geheiratet hatte und hier vom Nachzügler unter den Brüdern, Randy Jackson, ersetzt wird) blieb bei Berry Gordy, der außerdem die Marke The Jackson 5 beibehalten konnte. Das ist auch der Grund für diese Premiere im Jahre 1976 unter dem Namen The Jacksons. Der Höhepunkt bei all diesem Hin und Her war dann, dass die Produktion dem Duo Kenny Gamble und Leon Huff übergeben wurde, den Meistern des Soul aus Philadelphia, einem Genres, das als Disco-Vorläufer zu Beginn der Seventies das in Seide gekleidete und mit Champagner gefeierte Amerika auf die Tanzfläche lockte. Die Jackson-Brüder waren jedoch keine unschuldigen, oder gar einfältigen, brav gehorchenden Soldaten mehr, sondern entschlossen, ihren künstlerischen Ideen Platz zu verschaffen. Damit entstand eine recht heterogene Platte, die sich zwar durch einen groovenden Soul auszeichnete, zwischen den für The Jacksons typischen Kennzeichen und den hedonistischen Anwandlungen von Gamble und Huff jedoch keinen richtigen Leitfaden erkennen ließ. Den beiden Letzteren ist übrigens jeder zweite Song zu verdanken und Michael startet mit Blues Away, seinem allerersten Titel. Der 18-Jährige hat endlich eine außergewöhnlich selbstsichere Stimme und nimmt eindeutig Abstand von der Figur des Little Michael. Verglichen mit The Jacksons präsentiert MFSB, die Gruppe der von Gamble und Huff geleiteten Sigma Sound Studios, eine aalglatte Musik mit (sofern nötig) dementsprechend großem Streicheinsatz und schmachtenden Rhythmen. Ein bisschen wie beim Slalom geht es zwischen dem an Pop grenzenden Soul (Enjoy Yourself) und zu Disco tendierendem Rhythm’n’Blues hindurch, was keineswegs unangenehm ist (Show You The Way To Go). Das Album wird zwar in den Charts mit Gold belohnt, kündigt aber keineswegs Michaels Welterfolg an, drei Jahre später, im Alleingang mit Off The Wall… © Marc Zisman/Qobuz

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. 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. 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, but it's a weak lyric. The Dexter Wansel-written and -produced "Keep on Dancing" matches a substandard discofied track to Michael Jackson's singular vocals. The last track, the graceful "Blues Away" marks the writing debut of the group and is a great match between artists and producers. For the most part, The Jacksons gives the guys by-the-numbers Philly tracks that could have been easily done by Lou Rawls. Despite the best songs, The Jacksons misses more than it hits. © Jason Elias /TiVo

This was the final gathering of the entire Jackson family, and it turned out to have both historical significance and some musical value. The team of L.A. and Babyface, then emerging as major producers, spearheaded the track "Nothin' Compares to U," and the title track was a nice autobiographical/family outing song. © Ron Wynn /TiVo
