AllMusic Review by

Unquestionably one of the dominant forces of pop music during the '70s and the first supergroup from the second phase of Berry Gordy's Motown heyday, the Jackson 5 amassed a back catalog that only an elite group of Gordy's artists could rival. Previously issued in 2000 under the title Anthology (which, incidentally was a remaster of 1976's greatest-hits compilation of the same name), this collection contains a complete survey of the group's most well-known hits right up to 1976, which is when the group later signed to Epic. There are B-sides, a few live cuts and original LP versions selected over the dance or radio originals. Most die-hard fans of the fellows will be challenged to find anything here they don't already have, but for casual fans looking for all of the hits and then some, this may be the only Jacksons greatest-hits CD you'll ever need in your collection.
