Third Album


Third Album sort en septembre 1970 alors que les Jackson 5 connaissent leurs heures de gloire. Le groupe enchaîne les shows télévisés, les concerts, et les couvertures de magazines pour ados. Le premier titre à être extrait est I'll Be There, sorti quelques semaines avant l'album, en août. Le titre deviendra la troisième plus grosse vente de Motown, derriere "I've Heard It Through the Grapewine" de Marvin Gaye, et "Endless Love" de Diana Ross et Lionel Richie.

I'll Be There sera suivi de Mama's Pearl en début d'année 1971. Deux autres singles seront exploités en dehors des USA: How Funky Is Your Chicken et Goin' Back To Indiana. L'album est truffé de reprise de chansons, on pourrra citer : une reprise de Simon & Garfunkel (Bridge Over Troubled Water), une de Smokey Robinson & The Miracles (The Love I Saw In You Was Just A Mirage) et une adaptation du titre gospel Oh How Happy... A noter: la présence du titre Ready Or Not, qui a inspiré la chanson du même nom des Fugees en 1996. I'll Be There sera quant à lui le premier tube de Mariah Carey en 1992.
Third Album est l'album le plus vendu du groupe, avec plus de 6 millions de copies.
