Jackson 5 & B.M.W. photo JAMAICA 1975


Gotta say, this is one of the most amazing images from the archives that I’ve viewed.  The colors and details of the moment capture by the photographer during this era are unique.  The Jackson 5 & The Wailers all together in a huge tree branch, just outside of Bob’s home at 56 Hope Rd in Kingston.  It was a homecoming!.  Even Ms. Jackson (mother) attended the trip to meet with the ‘mystic man’.  Bob had a huge impact on the J5, as their manager / personal assistant (Don Taylor)  tells.  There are more images of this encounter during the mid 70’s.  At the peak of Bob & The Wailers music career this beautiful meeting of the two most powerful entertainment families.

It is with great honor to introduce this photo by an unknown photographer. Which we know he is out there, and would love to give him credit on this humble brief article about one of the most classic moments in music history.  Dig deep to get deeper!

Love & Shout out to David Dolnick for making Listen Recovery one of the homes of the “Roger Steffens Archives 1973”
