Ultimate Christmas Collection
Released: Oct 2009
This 2009 reissue expands 1970's Jackson 5 Christmas Album, released at the end of a year the J5's first three albums all went Top 5. With Michael at his super-cute and cheery height of childhood genius – he sounds like he really believes Santa's coming to town -- and his brothers funking, doo-wopping and barumpabumbumming, it's a sweet treasure. Not to mention a true family affair, with Jackie wishing for a basketball hoop and Marlon sole-ful new shoes and Jermaine bah-humbugging after his girl dumps him. Added tracks include individual radio greetings, remixes, an a cappella and a medley.
