Final Gravity

Title - 'Jackson 5 - Come And Get It: The Rare Pearls'
Artist - The Jackson 5

The Jackson 5 burst on the music scene like a ray of sunshine in late 1969, reeling off four consecutive No. 1 hits and inspiring worldwide Jacksonmania.

They also recorded constantly, and a treasure trove of newly discovered, previously unreleased recordings by Michael, Jermaine, Jackie, Marlon and Tito are being released for the first time on Come And Get It: The Rare Pearls.

Produced by Deke Richards, leader of The Corporation, the Jackson 5's original hit songwriting-production team, the extraordinary 32-track, 2-CD set enough songs to fill three Jackson 5 albums is housed in a special box with deluxe packaging that includes not only the two discs but a vinyl 7-inch single, rare photos, essays and detailed information.

The first disc on this 2-CD album kicks off with 'We're The Music Makers,' a song that not only tells it like it is, but introduces us to each band member one-by-one. Next is the pop funk of 'If The Shoe Don't Fit,' which is followed by 'Come And Get It (Love's On Fire),' 'I Got A Sure Thing,' and both 'After You Leave Girl' and the unstoppable force of 'Mama Told Me Not To Come.' Sung in a growling kids' voice, and at a slower pace than we're used to hearing, it is a rare pearl indeed.

With each band member taking time front and center singing, it's hard for me to know who isn't Michael, but they don't sound too disimilar from each other anyway, in truth. Up next is the funky 'Iddinit,' with 'Since I Lost My Baby,' the high-pitched chant of 'Keep An Eye,' the slower 'Movin,' the bouncy hit 'Feelin' Alright,' 'You Better Watch Out,' and then 'I'm Your Sunny One' and 'Someone's Standing In My Love.'

The second disc begins with the bouncy young love of 'If You Want Heaven,' before going into 'You Can't Hurry Love,' the instructional warning of 'Keep Off The Grass,' the calming ballad 'Going My Way,' the partner love of 'Makin' Life A Little Easier,' 'Up On The Roof' and both 'If I Can't Nobody Can' and 'Our Love.'

The fast-paced 'I Can't Get Enough Of You,' 'Cupid,' the bouncy 'Let's Go Back To Day One,' and the funk of 'Would Ya Would Ya Baby' are all next, with 'Love Trip,' 'Label Me Love,' 'Jumbo Sam,' and the coming of age 'That's How Love Is,' the soft 'If I Have To Move A Mountain' and finally 'Mama's Pearl' (which should have been called 'Guess Who's Making Goofy To Your Girlfriend'!) bringing the highly impressive, wonderful to hear again 2-CD set to a close.
