A recent series of Ebay auctions from a former music promoter in Baltimore, Maryland has unearthed a virtual goldmine of previously unseen vintage r&b promotional photos, all in superb condition. While many of these groups were from Baltimore and other parts of the East Coast, the collection also contained a large number of promotional photos from all around the country. One of the most interesting photos from our perspective was this early promotional photo of Michael Jackson’s first group, the Jackson 5 and Johnny. A color version of this photo can be seen on the recent compilation of Jackson 5’s early singles, Beginning Years 1967-1968.
