Soulsation! is a 4-CD box set of music performed by The Jackson 5 throughout their tenure in Motown spanning from 1969 to 1975, when they left for CBS Records. Released in 1995, it was released to celebrate the 25th anniversary of the year the group became the first group to have their first four releases go straight to #1 on the Billboard charts, and featured an intro from the group's baby sister Janet, liner notes from David Ritz and an essay from the brothers' first producer, Bobby Taylor. The fourth disc was completed by unreleased Jackson 5 songs made mostly from mid 1969 to early 1972. The set also included solo numbers from Michael, Jermaine, and Jackie.
