INFOS

Let Me Tickle Your Fancy was released in July 1982 and would be Jermaine’s last album for Motown before he moved to Arista Records. The album became one of Jermaine’s most successful albums for Motown. In the U.S. it reached #9 in the R&B chart and #46 in the Pop chart.

Also for this album Jermaine was very much involved in writing and producing the songs. All the songs on the album were produced by Jermaine Jackson and Berry Gordy. Berry Gordy and Hazel Gordy were the executive producers of the album. This time the style of the album went more towards pop and on some tracks even rock, instead of the soulful songs that Jermaine made on his previous albums.

Two singles were released in the U.S. from the album, the title track Let Me Tickle Your Fancy and Very Special Part. Though Very Special Part didn’t do so well, it reached #54 in the R&B chart. Let Me Tickle Your Fancy was a smash! The song, which contains background vocals of Devo, reached #5 in the R&B chart and #18 in the Pop chart.

Among the great tracks on the album, memorable songs were the soulful You Belong To Me, a duet with female single Syreeta, and another soulful track You Moved A Mountain, which was released as a single in the U.K.
