Although having just entered his teens, pop prodigy Michael Jackson's star was still very much on the ascent, circa his second full-length release, Ben (1972). This LP should not be confused with the Original Motion Picture Soundtrack from the Phil Karlson-directed "thriller" of the same name, and while blessed with an undeniable visual presence, Jackson was otherwise not involved in the creature feature. Like much of the Motown empire at the time, the title track's multimedia exposure, coupled with strong crossover appeal, insured that "Ben" scored the artist his first Pop Singles' chart-topper. Yet one interesting shift was the lack of participation from the Motown hitmaking machine known collectively as "the Corporation". While the aggregate had dominated most of the Jackson Five's early recordings and contributed their fair share to Jackson's debut, Got to Be There (1971), besides the title track, the only other cut to bear their unmistakable smooth production style is the practically perfunctory midtempo "We've Got a Good Thing Going." The catchy "Greatest Show on Earth" has a cinematic quality that stands out thanks to an excellent arrangement from James Anthony Carmichael -- one of several he scored for the project. While not a cover in the traditional sense, "People Make the World Go 'Round" was actually released within a few weeks of the Stylistics' more familiar hit. Although the reading heard here is equally impassioned, the emotive impact could arguably be greater thanks to the optimism infused with innocence in Jackson's vocals. "Everybody's Somebody's Fool" owes greatly to the Heartbeats' doo wop version, as opposed to Jimmy Scott's earlier classic. Jackson is obviously quite familiar with the former's phrasing while adding an age-defying maturity of his own. Returning back to his Hitsville roots, "My Girl" is updated with a funkier rhythm. The vocalist responds in kind with his own soulful lead that soars over the freshly syncopated chorus. The score includes some call-and-response interaction similar to what he and his brothers had displayed on the Jackson Five's selections "Nobody" and "The Love You Save," among countless others. "What Goes Around Comes Around" is one of Ben's better deep cuts with the vibrant melody perfectly matched to the artist's youthful voice. Of lesser note is the hopelessly dated "message" in the filler track "In Our Small Way." Luckily, a pair of winners conclude the effort with the propulsive and funky "Shoo Be Doo Be Doo Da Day" -- which was co-written by Stevie Wonder -- and the Berry Gordy-penned midtempo "You Can Cry on My Shoulder." Ben -- along with rest of Michael Jackson's recordings for Motown, can be found as part of the excellent and thoroughly annotative three-disc Hello World: The Motown Solo Collection (2009).

„Thriller“, Analyse eines Meisterwerks

Michael Jacksons „Thriller“ aus dem Jahr 1982, das meistverkauften Album aller Zeiten, schaffte es, Grenzen von Stilen, Rassen und Publikum aufzubrechen. Gewissermaßen ist es die erste und einzige Transgender-Platte… Aber vor allem ein Album, das die Musikindustrie des 20. Jahrhunderts auf den Kopf stellte.

Stevie Wonder, die Jahre, die alles verändert haben

Zwischen 1972 und 1976 spielt der noch recht junge Stevie Wonder fünf Alben ein, die zu Meilensteinen in der Geschichte des Labels Motown, aber auch der Pop- und Soulmusik werden sollten. Rückblick auf musikalische und technologische, nach wie vor einflussreiche Jahre...

Aretha Franklin, die Königin von Atlantic

Zwischen 1967 und 1979 hat Aretha Franklin ihre größten Alben für das Label Atlantic Records aufgenommen. Diese Alben sind vom Gospel ihrer Kindheit geprägt und definieren, eingehüllt in Rhythm’n’Blues, die Konturen des modernen Soul neu.
