MJ_Got-To-Be-ThereReleased January 24, 1972
Recorded 1971
Label Motown
Producer Hal Davis, Willie Hutch

Motown released Jackson’s solo album around the same time that another famous brother from a famous family was doing the same: Donny Osmond, who was hitting with songs like “Sweet & Innocent” and “Puppy Love”. Jackson’s and Osmond’s debut efforts almost paralleled each other, as Jackson scored a hit with the title track and “Rockin’ Robin”, which like Osmond’s “Puppy Love”, was a remake of an old ’50s rock song. The album also included covers of Bill Withers’ “Ain’t No Sunshine”, Carole King’s “You’ve Got a Friend” and the Supremes’ “Love Is Here and Now You’re Gone”.
