Get It Together is the eighth studio album by the Jackson 5released in September for the Motown label. During the group's last years with Motown, the label struggled to come up with material for the group.
As a result, the Jackson 5 fell into a period from to where they scored no Top 10 singles. The only member not to complain about Motown's handling of the act was Jermainewho would marry Motown head Berry Gordy 's daughter Hazel the following year.
The album was arranged by Arthur G. The overall sound of the group changed as well. It was also on this album that he first employed what would later be known as his " vocal hiccup ", notably on the song "It's Too Late to Change the Time". Get It Together was one of the earliest albums to experiment with a pre- disco sound, released at a time before the genre was mainstream. The album was a breakaway from the group's bubblegum soul sound as they came up with a more funk -oriented album similar Get The Most - Together the Temptations ' Norman Whitfield -produced albums.
The sequence of songs was also carefully arranged for Get It Together. There was no silence separating one song from the Stand Up - Soledad Brothers - Live At The Gold Dollar. Each track flowed together thematically, a technique The Demented - Demos from Stevie Wonder 's landmark album Music of My Mindreleased the year prior.
The title track, "Get It Together", was a modest pop hit for the group reaching No. Get It Together was also the first Jackson 5 album to feature all five Jackson brothers sharing lead vocals, giving the album a more Get The Most - Together unified aura. In addition, the album did not feature production or songwriting from any of the now-disbanded Corporation.
Motown head Berry Gordya member of the Corporation, was busy expanding his Motown empire into movie ventures, mostly starring Diana Ross. This album was paired up with Skywriter.
