Michael Jackson worked with Willie Hutch to revive an old classic by Booby Day called "Rockin' Robin(listen to it Here). On his very first Motown solo Got To Be There. Beginning Side-B on a fresh and exiting cover. With plenty of youthful energy and vigor. Coinciding with Donnie Osborne's "Puppy Love"(also a revived oldie). Both were child-stars. Both performed songs about animals. As a matter of fact, disgruntled disc jockeys roared "no more animal songs until they hire someone to clean the floors in the studio!"
Still, no one had a clue of what Mr. Jackson would be 10 years from now.
