A man of rare qualities, Marvin Gaye's work speaks for itself. Away from the public glare he was a complex, unpredictable yet an amusing and charming man. Though not as prolific as other Motown luminaries his work was highly regarded and his classic album, ³What's Going On², from which many of these covers are taken, is well within the pantheon of timeless and essential
albums, soul, funk or otherwise.
The marvel Of Marvin is a similar project to the phenomenally successful ‘Wonder Of Stevie’ projects earlier in the year, but you will hear a more commercial sound through Marvin Gaye, from the essential and recognisable (Martha & The Vandellas, Otis Redding & Clara Thomas) to the obscure and straight up frenzy inducing (Bobby Taylor & The Vancouver's and Delroy Wilson) this volume of classic covers, collaborations and cookies will have you asking for more and will make you wanna holler!
