Christmas Album Art

I've always loved the original album cover for the Jackson 5 Christmas Album. Each of the individual shots of the brothers are superb -- it doesn't hurt that they were taken on a day when all five were at a cuteness peak.

It's obvious that the pictures were also taken on the same day as the cover art that was used for the Jackson 5 Third Album -- not surprising since the two albums were recorded around the same time, and even have similar names.

Although I've seen plenty of outtakes for the Third Album's group pose, I've only ever come across one for one of the individual shots:

It's a nice solo shot of Marlon, but nothing beats the one they chose for the cover of the Christmas Album.
