06 Sep Jackson 5 ‘Greatest Hits’ Collection Arrives In Rare Quad Mix Vinyl LP
Jackson 5 ‘Greatest Hits’ Collection Arrives In Rare Quad Mix Vinyl LP on October 25, 2019.
Firstly the Jackson 5’s first singles collection, titled Greatest Hits, was originally released on December 27, 1971. Overall it encapsulated an extraordinary 18-month span of back-to-back hits. Surely it was in itself a hit souvenir of Jacksonmania. Equally important, it featured incredibly popular records. In detail, Jackson 5’s legendary Motown debut, “I Want You Back”. Then two iconic B-sides, “I Found That Girl” and “Who’s Lovin’ You”. Also something new: “Sugar Daddy”. Specifically, a single which was then not available on any other Jackson 5 LP.
So the Jackson 5 Greatest Hits quad mix is rare and sought-after because it was originally issued only in Japan in 1975. Basically, the Quad Mix includes alternate vocals, as well as some instrumentation not heard in the tracks’ well-known single and album mixes. In any case, as within this edition, these mixes are the stereo folds, consumers do not need a special decoder or four speakers to enjoy the music. For this purpose, original analog four-channel masters from the Motown vault were used as the audio source for the new LP editions, which were mastered and cut by Alex Abrash at AA Mastering.
Above all Motown/UMe will release Jackson 5 Greatest Hits on black vinyl LP and limited edition clear vinyl LP on October 25th. Finally, head here to preorder this rare record finally made available again. Certainly, it will be a great addition to your collection. Also, be sure to check out the artwork and tracklist below.
