The band were orginally known as The Jackson 5 (1969-1975), but changed to The Jacksons after moving to Epic from Motown record label. They also lost Jermaine Jackson and added Randy Jackson to their lineup. Their move allowed the group more creative freedom allowing them to write most of their own material and play their own instruments. Brothers Jackie, Tito, Marlon, Michael and Randy Jackson made up The Jacksons, although Michael left after 1984s 'Victory' album to concentrate on his hugely sucessful solo career after 1982s 'Thriller' had become the biggest selling album ever. The bands most famous songs are 'Blame It On The Boogie', 'Can You Feel It', Shake Your Body (Down To The Ground)' and 'Heartbreak Hotel'. The band finally called it a day in 1990 after findind little sucess without their lead singer Michael. « hide
