I'm also wondering, no idea really, the only thing I can do for now is list what we know:

According to https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Diana_Ross_Presents_The_Jackson_5

- Reach Out, I'll Be There
- Listen I'll Tell You How
- Oh, I've Been Bless'd
- I'm Your Sunny One (He's My Sunny Boy)
- After You Leave Girl
- You've Really Got a Hold on Me (Jackson 5 version)
- Since I Lost My Baby"
- It's Your Thing
- A fool for you
- La-La (Means I Love You)

According to: https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/To_Sir_with_Love_(song)
- To Sir, with love

According to various sources:
- What's so good about goodbye
(Something that could be confusing though is that according to "Looking back to yesterday"'s Wikipedia page, there were also recording sessions in December 1969, so when a date says 1969, it's not necessarily the summer sessions.)

There could be also songs from "Come and get it: The rare pearls" and "I want you back!" unreleased masters... but I don't have info there, and I can't go check my CDs right now.

From listening to these recently I'm also wondering about:
- You ain't giving me what I want (so I'm giving it all back)
- Money honey
- Don't let your baby catch you??? (

Apart from most of DRPTJF songs, there are

  • True Love Can Be Beautiful (ABC)
  • Ready or Not Here I Come (Third Album)
  • Oh, I've Been Blessed (Boogie)
  • You Ain't Giving Me What I Want (Soulsation)
  • Reach Out, I'll Be There (Soulsation)
  • A Fool For You (Soulsation)
  • We Can Have Fun (Soulsation)
  • LIsten I'll Tell You How (IWYB-Unreleased Masters)
  • Man's Temptation (IWYB-Unreleased Masters)
  • I Got a Sure Thing (Come & Get It - rare pearls)
  • After You leave Girl (Come & Get It - rare pearls)
  • Since I Lost My Baby (Come & Get It - rare pearls)
  • What's So Good About Goodbye (Motown Unreleased 1969)
  • You've Really Got a Hold On Me (Motown Superstars singing Motown Treasures)
  • After The Storm The Sun Wil Rise (Leaked)
  • To Sir With Love (Leaked)

It's said Bobby had recorded around 60 songs in total with the boys. Dunno how accurate that is, however, this would mean there're roughly 20 to 30 unheard Bobby Taylor produced songs in the vault.

Oh so, I was right about "You ain't giving me what I want", just by listening to it :)

After The Storm The Sun Wil Rise (Leaked)
Oh, I never head of this, my collection is incomplete! (And I don't even find it on YouTube.)

It would be a good move for Motown to release a new compilation of a previously unreleased J5 songs. It has been almost 9 years since the last such release.
