Boogie is a compilation album of both previously released and unreleased tracks by the American band The Jackson 5. It was released after the release of the Jacksons studio album Destiny in 1979. Boogie is considered the rarest of all Jackson 5 or Jacksons releases, as not many albums were pressed and fewer were sold at the time.

Background and composition[edit]

In 1979, the Jacksons moved up in the Top 10 with the album Destiny, released by Epic, and the hit "Shake Your Body (Down to the Ground)". Michael Jackson began recording Off the Wall that year, and Motown wanted to cash in on the newfound success with Boogie on the Natural Resources label.

Five of the seven songs are unpublished productions by Hal Davis; some are in the line of "Pride and Joy" on "Joyful Jukebox Music" as "I Was Made To Love Her" and "Love's Gone Bad". The sweetness of "One Day I'll Marry You", following the sessions for "Never Can Say Goodbye", might have its place in albums like Maybe Tomorrow and Got to Be There. "Oh, I've Been Blessed" is produced by Bobby Taylor, recorded in the early beginnings of Motown group. "Penny Arcade" is the vein of Lookin' Through the Windows.

Boogie, along with Joyful Jukebox Music, were distributed for a very short period, and the album remains the rarest of the Jackson 5. In 2004, it was available for a limited time from Hip-O Select, to complement Motown's 2001 "2 Albums on 1 CD" re-issue set of the Jackson 5's albums, on which some of these songs were issued as bonus tracks. Although only 5,000 copies were pressed, the album contains the previously unreleased full 15+ minute take of the song "Hum Along and Dance".[1] It is currently available for purchase on iTunes.[2]
