Jackie Jackson is the self-titled debut album from Jackie Jackson, the eldest member of the Jackson 5. The album was released on Motown Records.

Released on October 14, 1973, the album suffered from a severe lack of promotion, and as a result failed to chart in spite of Jackie Jackson's immense success as a member of the Jackson 5. It would be his only full length solo release for more than 15 years, and his only solo album with Motown.

The single "Love Don't Wanna Leave" has gone on to appear on several Jackson 5's compilations (including Anthology 76, Anthology 86 and Soulsation!), however, the full length LP ranks among the more obscure releases in the Jackson family catalogue. The B side opener "Do I Owe" is notable for featuring background vocals from the Jackson 5.

"Love Don't Wanna Leave" appeared on several Jackson 5's compilations (including Anthology 76, Anthology 86 and Soulsation), but for the other tracks, they appeared only on the 33 rpm vinyl. The album contains the participation of the Jackson 5 on the song "Do I Owe"and "Didn't I (Blow Your Mind This Time)." The song "Is It Him or Me" was sampled by Nas on his song entitled War on the Street's Disciple album.
