Product Description

Product Description

MARVIN GAYE The Very Best Of (1994 German pressed 22-track CD album including the classic hits I Heard It Through The Grapevine Whats Going On [Sexual] Healing You Are Everything It Takes Two How Sweet It Is [To Be Loved By You] Youre All I Need To Get By The Onion Song and more with guest appearances by Diana Ross Kim Weston and Tammi Terrell plus the previously unreleased Lucky Lucky Me)

Amazon.co.uk

Balancing raw power with shades of vulnerability, Gaye rose to the top of Motown's roster without the benefit of a supporting vocal group. Whether singing love songs or social commentary, Gaye's voice displays an earnestness and sincerity that are a soul singer's most potent weapons. Among these 47 hits are his memorable duets with Mary Wells, Kim Weston and Tammi Terrell along with Motown staples such as "Can I Get a Witness", "How Sweet It Is", "Ain't That Peculiar" and "I Heard It Through the Grapevine". This set also covers socially conscious 1970s originals such as "What's Going On", "Mercy, Mercy Me" and "Inner City Blues". Only his last hit, "Sexual Healing", is left out. --Marc Greilsamer

This album brings us the type of music which has inspired a whole generation of HIP-HOP and R&B stars, you can tell as oon as you hear this album that Marvin Gaye was one of the greatest performers to ever grace the music scene! it includes clasics like Mercy Mercy Me and also some inspiring duets. This is an album for all ages and i doubt that no one who listens to it will say otherwise a truly clisic album bringing together some of the great man's biggest hits.

Format: Audio CD
You cannot fit all of Marvin's hits on a single CD but this collection has most of the essentials. From a British perspective, one advantage that this has over the double CD (Very best of, which was compiled in America but released in both the UK and USA) is that it includes three UK top ten hits that are not on the double CD, these being Onion song (supposedly with Tammi Terrell, though Tammi was too ill to record the song and a sound-alike substituted), You are everything (with Diana Ross) and Abraham Martin and John (which was an American hit for Smokey Robinson and the Miracles, not Marvin Gaye).
There is no room on this CD to explore Marvin's career in depth, but it does contain all his important British hits (some minor hits have been omitted) and on that basis, it provides an excellent overview of Marvin's career. Nevertheless, before buying this, you may wish to compare it with the double CD, Very best of.

You can't get more soul or a sweeter sound than Marvin Gaye's voice. This is a real must if you want something to touch your heart and soul and relax into some amazing feelings. Buy it or you're a fool missing out on some legendary songwriting...!

there's no perfect 'best of' or 'greatest hits' for any artist as everyone's tastes differ... a 'greatest hits' is more straightforward as it contains mainly the hit singles - a 'best of' is more open to debate... all the Marvin Gaye compilation albums look excellent and contain all the obvious hits and choice album cuts -there's not much to choose between them - but for me this is the one i'm going for as it's the only one that contains 'abraham martin and john' which is a beautiful and incredibly moving song (a hit in 1970 and first heard by me from my brother's motown chartbusters vol 5 album).....i guess there must be legal reasons why this fantastic song is not on the other best ofs, as surely for those who have heard it must love it.......

Good quality sound, lots of tracks, just what I was hoping for. It has been played a lot since the purchase. This now sits amongst my current most played albums. Received quickly etc. Ticks all the boxes and another reason why internet shopping is taking over!! When you live in the Western Isles of Scotland... this process is all to easy and makes it such that the shops are now on your doorstep. Thanks.

I was pleased to get a fast delivery. The CD was of a very good quality. Didn't keep it long though my son soon borrowed it! Haven't seen it since.

Excellent selection that reminds you how dominant Gaye was in his era and confirms him as one of the great, poetic lyricists. He hasn't got Otis Redding's voice and the music doesn't quite have the durability you want it to have - but nostalgia would be a poorer emotion without him!

A great collection of songs. I mainly bought it for "You're all I need to get By" following the recent fantastic advert using the song. But Marvin Gaye is a great talent and there are some wonderful tunes to revisit.
