Essential Musical Acts Of The ’70s

The Jackson 5


This Motown family made history by being the first recording act whose initial four singles — “I Want You Back,” “The Love You Save,” “ABC” and “I’ll Be There” — all hit No. 1 on the Billboard pop charts. Powered by the soprano of a little, prepubescent Michael Jackson, the five Jackson brothers became one of the first black acts to achieve huge success with white audiences. With their costumes, youthful looks and synchronized dance moves, the Jacksons also paved the way for such boy bands as the Backstreet Boys, NSYNC and the Jonas Brothers.
