Live by The Jackson 5
Released: Nov 1981
Label: Epic
Recorded during the Jacksons' 1981 "Triumph Tour," this is the last live album Michael Jackson released during his lifetime, and the only one that gives us a glimpse of him on the cusp of global mega-stardom not seen since The Beatles. You can hear it when the crowd squeals as he tears up during "She's Out Of My Life," or when he scats energetically at the end of "I'll Be There," before screaming, "I think I wanna rock!" As usual, his brothers are mostly along for the ride, though Jackie's Bobby Byrd-like adlibs and their harmonies on "This Place Hotel" and "Lovely One" stand out.
