Art for Live at the Forum

It's not surprising that our friend Yoann is the first kid on the block to have the cover art for the new Live at the Forum cd, more than a month before its release, which you can find over on his fabulous Jackson5ABC.com site. But what is surprising is that of all the photos that were taken of the Jackson 5 performing at the Forum, especially from their 1970 concert, Hip-0-Select would choose this photo from a 1971 concert in Indianapolis.

Too bad someone over at Soulful Detroit couldn't hook them up with Weldon McDougal III, an active participant in their online forum, who was Motown's still photographer at the time. I'm sure he has dozens of unpublished photos they could have used.


  1. Yeah, this is a bit of a disappointment.
    I hope the booklet has pictures from the right concert... LOL
    Those pictures from their 1970 performance are SO great and energetic! Why on earth did they choose to take this picture.

    The only reason I can think of is that 1971 is right in between 1970 and 1972...

  2. Or because it was a photo Universal owned so they didn't have to pay any extra for it.

  3. ^^^
    sounds bout right
