This is already Part 3 in the series
which will feature October 1972.
Michael was only 14 and
quite a STAR in his own right.

~ October 1972 ~

The Jackson 5 appear on several TV shows including
'Sonny and Cher Comedy Hour' and a Special called
'One more time' where they sing with
the Mills Brothers and Pat Boone.

~ October 28, 1972 ~

'Corner of the sky' / 'To know' by the J5,
a track from the Broadway Musical 'Pippin' released this month by
Motown Records, enters the Pop Singles chart peeking at N° 18.
It remains on the charts for 12 fine weeks.

The Jackson 5 tour Europe with concerts in
Amsterdam, Brussels, Frankfurt, Munich, Paris and
4 cities in Great Britain.

I didn't know they came to Brussels in 1972 but mind you,
I was only 3 months old, lol.

To end this episode, I'd like to share a quote by Michael
spoken out in January 1972 at the tender age of 13.
"I like all our fans even the ones who keep calling me
'cute' but I'm getting bigger every day so
they'll have to call me something else."
