This is an excellent collection of songs if you want to be introduced to Marvin Gaye, from the early classics, "Pride and joy", "Can i get a witness". It also includes one of the greatest songs of all time, "Let's get it on". Basically i recomend this collection to anyone finding Marvin for the first time.

One of Marvin Gaye's best albums, the title song I heard It Through the Great Grapevine is the ultimate song but What Is Going On has to been one of his best songs ever with such a potent message to the world.

Marvin Gaye had a huge built in vocal talent. If he couldn't hit a note he would slip into falsetto, or improvise with such ease style and grace that you hardly noticed.

These are original recordings, not live or re-recordings, but a great sampler of his Motown work, where he spent most of his career. There is a fair smattering of his hits here too. His biggest was of course '...Grapevine', still always on the radio, known and loved by two or three generations. That song in itsself would be enough to make Marvin a legend, but there was more to him than that.

His voice blended wonderfully with womens' voices. He didn't overwhelm them, his sensitivity and style allowed him to share with them perfectly. At one time he was the only man to have British chart entries with four different ladies, Mary Wells, Kim Weston, Tammi Terrell and Diana Ross. A track with each is included here. His longest and most succesful pairing was with Tammi Terrell. I would reccommend their duets to anybody with my last breath.

As well as these credited duets, female groups were used for background vocals. On his first hits in 1962/3 (the first two tracks here), Martha Reeves and the Vandellas, provided strident soulful back ups. When they got too busy in their own right, The Supremes did track three. The Rolling Stones thought enough of that one to cover it. When The Supremes too got succesful, The Andantes, Motown's in house session singers added their vocals to Marvin's hits.

In the 70s Marvin evovled his own sound and came up with 'What's Going On' and 'Lets Get It On' among others.

Marvin Gaye has influenced generations of soul and pop singers. If you don't have any of his music in your collection, then you need this album badly.

Just as I remember it. Shows Marvin Gaye as the great soul singer he was. The cover number gets everyone moving.
