Big Boy (3:43)

Cover of The Jackson 5

From The Jackson 5 and 12 other releases

The song “Big Boy” was the first single ever released by The Jackson 5, in January 1968, through Steeltown Records.[1] The group produced and played instruments on many of their Steeltown compositions, including “Big Boy”. The song was neither a critical or commercial success, but the Jackson family were delighted with the outcome nonetheless.

The Jackson 5 would release a second single with Steeltown Records before moving to Motown Records. The groups recordings at Steeltown Records were thought to be lost, but they were rediscovered more than 25 years later in a pantry. They were remastered and reissued in 1995, with “Big Boy” as the promotional lead single.

    what an ironic first single... the first of Michael Joseph Jackson... irony at it's finest. He was Peter Pan... not a Big Boy.
