In 1976, while the Jacksons began their first contract with Epic, with the release of their eponymous album, Motown didn't waste time and released the 3-LPs in the United States, (a 2 LP set in Europe). This was the first compilation to be released in the United States and including their greatest successes, and some of Michael and Jermaine solos, and even a Jackie track.

The particularity of this compilation is that it included the single version of Mama's Pearl (in a different instrumentation) and Get It Together, more powerful, the bass and guitars highlighted, giving the title a more funky dimension than ever. It also contained an extended version of Do not Know Why I Love You, originally released on ABC. The CD version of this 3LP was not released until 1986. A third anthology was released in 2001.

En 1976, alors que les Jacksons entament leur premier contrat chez Epic, avec la sortie de leur album éponyme, Motown ne perd pas de temps et publie ce triple 33 tours aux Etats-Unis, et double 33 tours en Europe. C'est la première compilation à sortir aux Etats-Unis, à inclure leurs principaux succès, ainsi que quelques uns de Michael et Jermaine en solo, et même un titre de Jackie.

La particularité de cette compilation est de proposer les versions singles de Mama's Pearl (dans une instrumentation différente de la version album), et de Get It Together, beaucoup plus percutante, aux basses et guitares mieux mises en valeurs, donnant au titre une dimension plus funk que jamais. Elle contient également une version longue de Don't Know Why I Love You, initialement parue sur ABC.

La version CD de ce triple LP ne sortira qu'en 1986. Une troisième Anthology sortira en 2001.
