With the Jackson 5 at 56 Hope Road, April 1975. Photo: Lee Jaffe

Jaffe took this shot during the Jackson 5’s visit to Bob’s home at 56 Hope Road in Kingston (now the Bob Marley Museum, site of today’s 70th birthday celebrations) before their show with the Wailers at Jamaica’s National Stadium. Bob, as usual, is the center of attention, while Michael Jackson, second from right in pinstriped shirt and afro, appears pensive and aloof.
