Michael Jackson was in born August 29th, 1958 in Gary, Indiana (USA), as the seventh of nine children born to Joseph and Katherine Jackson. Katherine worked part-time in a local department store. Joseph was a steel-mill worker, but had always dreamed of having a musical career. Joseph and his band, The Falcons, frequently rehearsed in the living-room of the four-room house on Jackson Street in Gary. As the children grew older, Joseph and Katherine became increasingly uneasy with the dangers of allowing their children to run the streets of Gary. They were very strict parents and did not allow the kids to play with other neighbourhood kids. But they encouraged them to be interested in music as a pastime. The four older boys (Jackie, Tito, Jermaine, Marlon) began to imitate their father's singing. Michael joined the group at the age of five and then he had his first solo at a school program at the age of six. Even then, he possessed a voice that brought his teachers to tears. The Jackson 5 performed in local clubs and shopping malls and talent shows. Eventually, they came to the attention of Berry Gordy, the famous founder of the Motown "Sound". Berry recognised the groups potential and Michael Jackson became a professional entertainer. He was nine years old. During their tenure with Motown Records, the Jackson 5 recorded and released the following albums:

« 1970: Diana Ross Presents The Jackson 5

« 1970: ABC 24994dfm45eqr2e

« 1970: Third Album

« 1971: Maybe Tomorrow

« 1972: Going Back To Indiana

« 1972: Looking Through The Windows fq994d4245eqqr

« 1972: Greatest Hits (Sampler)

« 1973: Skywriter

« 1974: Dancing Machine

« 1974: Get It Together

« 1975: Moving Violation

« 1976: The Best of … (Sampler)

« 1976: Joyful Jukebox Music

« 1979: Jackson Five (Sampler)

Michael Jackson at Motown Records:

In addition to recording with his brothers, Michael recorded the following solo albums with Motown Records:

« 1972: Got To Be There

« 1972: Ben

« 1973: Music And Me

« 1975: Forever Michael

The Jacksons:

In 1976, the Jackson 5 left Motown Records, because, in Michael's words, "We didn't like the way we were being recorded." Though 16-year-old Michael had met with Berry Gordy to request approval to write and produce their own music, Berry refused to allow the Jacksons this freedom. Eventually, the brothers signed with EPIC Records. However, Jermaine remained with Motown. He was replaced by Michael's youngest brother, Randy, both on stage and in the recording studio. The Jacksons' first two EPIC releases were produced by Gamble and Huff, except for two tracks each, which were written and produced by the Jacksons. They are:

« 1976: Jacksons

« 1977: Goin' Places

All the tracks on these albums were written and produced by The Jacksons:

« 1978: Destiny

« 1980: Triumph

« 1981: Live

« 1984: Victory

« 1989: 2300 Jackson Street

Michael Jackson at EPIC Records:

In 1979, Michael started as the Scarecrow in „The Wiz" with Diana Ross. During the filming, he renewed his old acquaintanceship with Quincy Jones. Later, they would join forces to make musical history repeatedly. With Quincy as producer, Michael recorded:

« 1979: Off The Wall

« 1982: Thriller

« 1987: BAD

The collaboration between Michael and Quincy broke so many records, that it would be too difficult to list them all. Suffice it to say that with Quincy, Michael rose to his present status as "The King of Pop". Thriller is the best-selling album in the history of recorded music. It won an unheard-of seven Grammy Awards and many international awards and is still selling well over one million copies per year, 16 years after its release. The latest figures we have seen list Thriller at over 50 million units sold world-wide. The last figures of BAD were around 30 million, so the album Dangerous must have recently beaten that! BAD has held the top two spot in world-wide sales for several years. However, it's our understanding that it has very recently been surpassed by: Dangerous, released 1991, was Michael's fourth solo release with EPIC Records, giving Michael Jackson the top three spots in world-wide sales in the history of recorded music. Needless to say, that no other artist, male, female or group, has consistently maintained such a long-standing level of excellence.

Then, in 1995, Michael released the sampler "HIStory", which shows his story in music. It is sold as well as Dangerous or even better. In 1996, Michael started also the HIStory world tour. During that tour, on May 14th in 1997, he released the remix-album "Blood on the Dancefloor" which contains four new songs. Some of these songs are also played on the HIStory world tour....
