Saturday Morning's Greatest Hits: Shake Your Body (Down To The Ground) (1979)

There was a time, well before he became the biggest concert attraction on the planet, when Michael Jackson would appear on American Bandstand, with or without his brothers. By the time they appeared on Bandstand on February 10, 1979, the group was simply, The Jacksons, having shed the "Five" sometime after their animated series had ended its run.

This clip, taken from the "Best of" package that aired on VH1 a few years back, features the Jacksons performing "Shake Your Body (Down To The Ground)".

Just a few months later, Michael Jackson would release "Off The Wall", and the rest, as they say, is history.
