DJ Grizz- The Jacksons Mix

Not much to say that hasn't been said about this group over the years. Jermaine, Tito, Marlon, Michael, Randy and Jackie- The Jacksons. From making music in the 60's as massive hit makers for Motown as the Jackson 5 through the 70's and 80's big LP's and dance floor favourites on Epic Records (a subsidiary of Philly International). The line up chopped and changed but the quality was always high.

A selection of my personal picks and likes include Give it Up from the 1980 Triumph LP, the originally unreleased Stevie Wonder penned version of Buttercup (a hit for Carl Anderson), the 1st version of Never Can Say Goodbye in their Jackson 5 guise, the Gamble and Huff penned hit Show You The Way To Go, and ends with a favourite of mine in Blues Away which was only ever released as a B-side.... plus more Jackson goodies to relive!

I'm back on the Rare Groove and Soul crate diggin' next week... see you then.
