The Group Takes A Shot At Solo Albums
The group released four solo studio albums with Motown, among them “Got To Be There” and “Ben.”
Michael recorded Off The Wall, his first album as a solo artist. The singles “Don’t Stop Til You Get Enough” and “Rock With You” both shoot to number-one hits.
Motown’s strict refusal to allow the group creative control, although they recorded several top 40 hits, led to the group leaving Motown in 1975.
