Formed in Compton, California, U.S.A.
The Jackson Sisters comprised of:
Based in Detroit, but originally out of Compton in California, The Jackson Sisters recorded material, with some modest success in the 1970's, however the group really came into their own nearly a decade later following the emergence of the 'rare groove' scene in the U.K.
Jackie was the eldest of the five siblings, Gennie the youngest.
In the late '80s, the late Johnny Bristol penned and produced 'Shake Her Loose', in 1975.
Bobby Taylor, produced and co-wrote the 'rare groove' anthem, 'I Believe In Miracles', in 1976.
Both songs were released on Polydor Records, although 'Miracles' was originally a b-side on the Mums label, with the A-Side being 'Boy You're Dynamite'.
The song was later to be re-released in the U.K. on the Urban imprint.
The parent album, scheduled to be released on Tiger Lily Records in 1976, was withdrawn (a few promo copies went into circulation and they now retail for around £500, about a thousand dollars).
