Notes:

^Previously issued, in part, on the soundtrack to The Jacksons: An American Dream in 1992.

^^Originally released on the soundtrack to Save the Children.



The band's usual opening song, "Stand!", was excluded from the release because the boys were having technical difficulties during the start of the 1970 show. Jermaine’s vocal microphone was off and his bass amplifier was inaudible, so the show had to be stopped for several minutes while the sound crew fixed everything.

"Mama's Pearl" in disc one was taken from the group's concert in Indiana on May 29, 1971. It is one of the five unreleased songs from that concert.

"Ain't No Sunshine" was recorded the night after most of the second disc was recorded, at the San Diego International Sports Arena, August 27, 1972. It was edited into Michael's solo set in the album's track listing, whereas in the San Diego show, it was elsewhere in the setlist.



Live at the Forum is a live album by American family musical group the Jackson 5. It was released on June 21, 2010. The live tracks contained in the album were mostly recorded on June 20, 1970 and August 26, 1972, during concerts at The Forum, in Inglewood, California.

The 1970 concert was a record-breaking show of over 18,000 attending, with the group only having released two studio albums and a couple of singles out up to that point. This concert is an example of the group's very early part of their career, on their first tour.

By the second show in 1972, the Jackson 5 were established icons and had seven albums on the Motown label, not including Michael or Jermaine's solo albums, which play a considerable part in the 1972 setlist. Michael's voice shows early signs of changing (as this concert was three days before his 14th birthday); he's still singing in a high-pitched voice but throughout most of this set he's straining to do so, at times screeching to hit the notes he could easily sing the years prior. Some songs were transposed to a lower key and Michael sang alternate phrasings to prevent his voice from cracking.
