While Michael Jackson‘s family is dealing with their personal squabbles three years after his death, this week brings a bright spot as far as the musical legacy of the late King Of Pop. A 32-song Jackson 5 compilation titled Come And Get It: The Rare Pearls will be released tomorrow (August 28), and it contains a few original tunes, some covers (such as “Up On The Roof” and “Mama Told Me Not To Come”) and alternate versions of songs that were released while the sibling quintet was signed to Motown.
One of the original numbers is “If The Shoe Don’t Fit”, which NPR noted sounds like it “could have easily wound up topping the pop charts alongside ‘I Want You Back’ and ‘The Love You Save’.” In fact, if you ask us, the song sounds like it could have been recorded the exact same day as “The Love You Save”. Give it a spin below and let us know what you think.
