After the release of the album, the brothers left Motown, due to the label refusing to let them write their own music and the group making very little from royalties from selling the songs that they recorded. The only brother to stay with the label was Jermaine, since he was married to Hazel Gordy. Motown allowed the group to leave the label. However, the group had to change their name, since The Jackson 5 moniker was owned by Motown. The brothers later signed with Philadelphia International Records and Epic Records with youngest Jackson brother Randy under their new name: The Jacksons.
In 2001, Motown Records remastered all J5 albums in a "Two Classic Albums/One CD" series (much like they did in the late 1980s). This album was paired up with Dancing Machine. The bonus tracks were the outtakes "Through Thick and Thin" (which appeared on 1976's Joyful Jukebox Music) and the Disc-o-Tech #3 Remix of "Forever Came Today".
