The Jackson Sisters comprised of Jacqueline Jackson-Rencher, Lyn Jackson, Pat Jackson, Rae Jackson and Gennie Jackson. They recorded material for the Tiger Lily Records label, obtaining some modest success in the 1970s, however the group really came into their own nearly a decade later following the emergence of the 'rare groove' scene in the UK. Many of their songs were written by Johnny Bristol. Bobby Taylor, produced and co-wrote their 'rare groove' anthem, "I Believe In Miracles", in 1976.
