Come And Get It: The Rare Pearls is a compilation album of previously unreleased tracks by American family group The Jackson 5, which was released digitally on August 28, 2012[1] and physically on September 18, 2012.[2]

Background[edit]

This compilation contains unreleased songs, recorded by the group during their tenure on the Motown Records label. Some of them are cover versions (Randy Newman's "Mama Told Me Not to Come", Traffic's "Feelin' Alright" and labelmates The Supremes' "You Can't Hurry Love"), and some of the tracks are alternate versions of already released songs (a longer version of "That's How Love Is" and the demo version of "Mama's Pearl" which was known as "Guess Who's Making Whoopie With Your Girlfriend").

Marketing[edit]

In November 2009, Motown Records released I Want You Back! Unreleased Masters, a selection of unreleased tracks by the Jackson 5.[3] It coincided with the 40th anniversary of their debut single on the label ("I Want You Back" b/w "Who's Lovin' You"),[4] and closely followed the release of the documentaryconcert film Michael Jackson's This Is It.[5] The physical version of this compilation was released on September 18, 2012,[2] the same day as Michael Jackson's Bad 25.[6]
