This album is just superb. From Michael's high tender vocals to Jermaine's sweet tone, it is just enjoyable. I Want You Back is so capturing with its upbeat tempo and lyrics, this album gets you in the blues and into a crazy funk. It just has endless classics and the cover for My Cherie Amour is so wonderful and beautiful. There's so many gems in here. I recommend buying it and listening to it endlessly.

What an incredible time for music
Between 65-75 was an awesome period for Motown. Incredible hit songs and amazing & rocking instrumentals.

When you have great music like this, it's worth listening to in its entirety. ✊🏾🌼🎸🎺🎤
