Marvin Gaye was an INCREDIBLE talent. I listen to his What's Going On album all the time. Amazing.

Thanks for posting. That's a super sweet groove.

Marvin Gaye is one of my heroes--a true great. There are a lot of tunes by him that really groove. Do you know this one?



Marvin's melodies are so absolutely groove friendly and his phrasing is superb.

In Our Lifetime is a very underrated record.

Here's one from Here, My Dear, another very interesting and underrated record--he had a lot of personal problems at the time. But just listen to his groove:

Recently I've been listening to Tammi Terrell quite a bit, which means I am hearing a lot of Marvin Gaye in the duets they recorded together.

Here are some cool isolated tracks of Gaye and Terrell.





and here are the released versions

I don't know if you can find the isolated vocal tracks to Marvin & Tammi's "Ain't No Mountain High Enough"- but Marvin sounded like he was having a total blast, you can hear him tapping his foot, clapping and grunting. Love it.

Good call! They both sound like they are having a blast.

I so prefer Marvin on his own--his harmonizations with himself couldn't be pulled off by anyone on the planet. He was brilliant at it.

Marvin really was inimitable. You appreciate that even more when you hear others take a stab at his material.

Greatest singer ever. With all due respect to James Brown, Marvin was the true godfather of soul. I consider James the godfather of funk.

Wow. In all honesty, the intro did turn me off. I have never heard synths quite like that, but when Marvin comes in, his toning is just perfect and he solidifies it all in the first line. Great video!!

He isn't my thing but he was a badass. I wish I had a nickle for each pair of panties he got wet.

I've been a Gaye acolyte ever since I got "Stubborn Kind of Fellow" in a big $5 stack of 45s at a yard sale. Of course, his later funk-oriented stuff is simply transcendant.

me too,neer.
he picked up a lot of his harmony from working with the moonglows,and harvey fuqua in particular.

marvin's harmonies place him firmly in the strata of jazz musician,dontcha think?
