Los Angeles cult sister group, the JACKSON SISTERS, were never prolific hit-makers but have achieved immortality due to the enduring popularity of their 1973 single, ‘I Believe In Miracles,’ which is considered a rare groove classic. The five siblings – a distaff version of the Jackson 5 – recorded a clutch of singles for the Prophesy, Mums, and Polydor labels in the early ’70s. A self-titled album also briefly surfaced – which collected together some of the group’s previous 45s – on the Tiger Lily label in 1976.
Long out of print and much-bootlegged, the super-rare album – which is almost impossible to find in its original first pressing – is now officially reissued by the UK indie label, Mr Bongo, who have licensed the tracks from Universal. As well as ‘I Believe In Miracles’ – which was titled ‘Miracles’ on the album release – the LP features the classic tracks ‘Day In The Blue,’ ‘Rockin’ On My Porch,’ ‘Shake Her Loose,’ ‘Boy, You’re Dynamite,’ and the ballad, ‘(Why Can’t We Be) More Than Just Friends.’ New liner notes contain quotes from the sisters themselves.
