"On this day 4"
Compiled by Daz, Inspired by MJJC
Today we browse into the HIStory books again.
We hop onto October 1974 and leave in 1975.
Picture is taken in Las Vegas in 1974.
~ October 1974 ~
"You haven't done nothin' " by Stevie Wonder
feat. backing vocals by The Jackson 5 is released in Britain.
~ October 5 ~
"Dancing Machine" (LP) by The Jackson 5
released by Motown Records, hits the Pop albums chart
peaking at N° 16 and remains on the charts for 21 weeks.
Suprisingly, the LP doesn't enter the Black charts.
An interesting fact is that songs written and produced
by Stevie Wonder for The J5 didn't make it to the 'final cut'.
~ October 6 ~
The J5 move their Cabaret set to Sahara Tahoe in Nevada.
~October 7 ~
The J5 tour the Far East with concerts in Japan, Hong Kong,
Australia and the Philippines.
~ October 26 ~
"Whatever you got, I want" with as B-side "I can't quit your love"
by The J5 released by Motown Records peak
the Black charts at N° 3.
The song also appears on the Pop singles charts hitting
the N° 38 spot while it remains there for 11 weeks.
~ October 1975 ~
"Just a little bit of you" / "Dear Michael"
is released in Britain but fails to reach the Top 60.
~ October 11 ~
However, "The Best of Michael Jackson" (LP)
peaks at N° 44 on the Black albums chart.
This, my friends is the end of the J5 HIStory
'depicting' the events only happening in October through the years
as the following year, they move onto CBS to
create even more HIStory.
So, stay tuned!
