Product Description

Product Description

These lavish, 28cm x 28cm hard-back books from classic Universal artists feature around 100 pages of essays, beautiful photographs and memorabilia.

"Ear Books - a new dimension of entertainment.

A fitting tribute to the most spellbinding of Motown artists, The Master is an amazing and detailed overview of the life and career of Marvin Gaye. From his first hits as a romantic lead, Stubborn Kind Of Fellow and Hitch Hike to his final hit, Sexual Healing, The Master follows Gaye as he moves from being an interpreter of simple love songs to being a troubled eco-cosmic warrior and finally to being the love man's love man, singing songs of sex, religion and passion in equal measure.

Steeped in soul and, later, saturated in funk, Gaye's work is often stimulating and occasionally disquieting, and is presented delightfully on this lavish four-CD set with sumptuous illustrations and detailed annotation.

5.0 out of 5 stars Fantastic 17 May 2007
Format:Audio CD
In this superb 4 cd, 88 track box set the compilers have created an indispensable part of any music lover's collection. The production is excellent, with good liner notes and great sound quality. The main plaudits have to go to the sadly missed Marvin Gaye though. 88 tracks of uniformly superb quality? It's a rare artist who can lay claim to that sort of a track record!

This set charts his career in chronological order, from the early soul of "Hitch hike" and "stubborn kind of fellow", "heard it through the grapevine", possibly the greatest soul song ever, the duets with Kim Weston ("It takes two") and Tammi Terrel ("Aint no mountain high enough"), through the social conscience (What's going on?") and the pure funk of "Sexual healing". In between these major milestones the path is full of unfairly lesser known gems, all of which are of a superb quality and just as worthy as his better known hits.

The man had an amazing voice and was more than worthy of the name "The Master". Indeed he seems to improve all the way through this set (even though he was pretty great to start with!) and one can't help but wonder what new heights he would have scaled if he had not been so cruelly taken from us.

This box set is a must for any serious soul fan. It is perhaps a little much for the casual Marvin Gaye fan, but for those who want to hear a bit more than just the usual big hits such as "Grapevine" and "sexual healing" it is ideal.

This had some old tracks which I had wanted for ages. Marvin Gaye at his best in my mind. It's nice to be able to get some old tracks that don't often get aired.

5.0 out of 5 stars The Master 31 Mar 2008
By Adam Redman - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Audio CD
This box set of four CD's is a complete compliment to Marvin Gaye.
The first 2cd's are of his earlier works and his duets which include Ain't no mountain high enough etc.
His earlier works are quite easy to listen to and I fell that they are really enjoyable.
The next two cd's are from the middle and later stages of his life.
They include songs from What's going on and Let's get it on which are some of his best work.
The booklet included in the package is quite brilliant with all his hits listed in it, his albums and a review from David Ritz.
This box set is a must have for fans.
