Sometimes the backs of press photos are just as interesting at the fronts. Take these two photos, for example.
I bought these two together years ago from an Australian record dealer who identified them as being from the Jackson 5's 1973 tour to Australia. They are a nice pair of live concert shots, but if they hadn't been press photos, I would have missed all this information that was recorded on the back. It identifies the concert as being the June 26 concert at Festival Hall in Melbourne.
But read on... there's more.
An Australian TV special? With live concert footage? We can learn from the news caption that it aired a month later (July 21) on ATN-7 at 6:30 pm. And the back of Michael's photo tells us that he was singing "Ben."
Any Australian fans out there who remember seeing The Jackson Five in Australia?
