1972 Forum Concert Review

As we all eagerly await the release of the new Jackson 5 cd, Live at the Forum later this month, I will be making posts related to the two concerts that will be released. In case this is the first time you're reading about the release, the double cd set will include the audio for two Jackson 5 concerts that were taped at the Los Angeles Forum, one on June 20, 1970 and one on August 26, 1972.

Soul covered the 1972 and published not one but two reviews of it side by side in their October 23, issue. One of the reviews was written by Jackson family friend, David Gest, who grew up with the Jackson kids in Encino. His odd reference to Randy as "Randy Lucifer Jackson" must be a private joke.
