Re-release

In 2001, Motown Records remastered all J5 albums in a "Two Classic Albums/One CD" series (much like they did in the late 1980s). This album was paired up with Skywriter. The bonus tracks were the outtakes "Pride and Joy", "Love's Gone Bad" and "Love Is the Thing You Need". "Love Is the Thing You Need" and "Pride and Joy" were released on Joyful Jukebox Music in 1976, and "Love's Gone Bad" was released on Boogie in 1979.



G.I.T.: Get It Together (a.k.a. Get It Together) is the 8th studio album by the Jackson 5, released in September 1973 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 1972 to early 1974 where they scored no Top 10 singles. By this point, most of the Jackson 5's members, and their manager/father Joseph, were vocally complaining about the group's direction, with Michael becoming the most outspoken. The only member not to complain about Motown's handling of the act was Jermaine, who married Motown head Berry Gordy's daughter Hazel three months after the release of the album.

The album was arranged by Arthur G. Wright, David Blumberg and James Anthony Carmichael.
