    Marvin Gaye - Collected

    180-Gram Audiophile Vinyl


    Gatefold Sleeve


    High-Quality PVC Protective Sleeve


    4-Page Booklet With Liner Notes And Photos


    Featuring ''Sexual Healing'', ''What's Going' On'' And ''Ain't No Mountain High Enough''


    Motown released the first Marvin Gaye record in 1961 ''(I'm Afraid) The Masquerade Is Over'', a single intended for (radio) promotion from the singer's debut album. This was followed up by the officially released ''Let Your Conscience Be Your Guide'' a week later. Gaye scored his first real hit with ''Stubborn Kind of Fellow'' in 1962, which he had co-written himself, joking about his alleged stubbornness. The foundations were now laid for an enormous series of chart successes: ''Pride And Joy'', ''Can I Get A Witness'', ''How Sweet It Is (To Be Loved By You)'' and ''Ain't That Peculiar'' are all Motown classics from 1963-1965 which are still being regularly played today after all these years.


    The duets he recorded with Kim Weston (''It Takes Two'') and especially Tammi Terrell were certainly at least as good.


    He scored his biggest ever hit with ''I Heard It Through The Grapevine'' in 1968. The ''What's Going On'' from the same named album became a number 1 hit in the USA and the album was received as a masterpiece everywhere and is now regarded as one of the most important records in pop history. In 1973, the artistically and commercially very successful, Let's Get It On album was mainly a musical ode to Marvin's love for his new muse Janis Hunter. The success enjoyed by ''Sexual Healing'' and the album which was released at the end of 1982, traveled with him. Suddenly Gaye, who had started to increasingly be forgotten about, was a celebrated star again and this was certainly a position the singer reveled in.


    The pop world lost one of the most important soul singers ever to grace the world on 1st April 1984. He has left behind a series of fantastic hits plus a big handful of tracks which deserve the title of masterpiece, all COLLECTED on this album.

    That's The Way Love Is

    When "That's The Way Love Is," from the album M.P.G. became such a huge hit, Motown issued an album of the same name, and included the title song as its centerpiece. The album, which went Top 20 R&B, is also significant for Marvin's cover versions of recent pop hits, particularly "Abraham, Martin and John" (a U.K. hit) and "Yesterday," now recognized as one of the greatest interpretations of a Beatles song.

    Continued

    Continued is the second album released by swamprocker Tony Joe White. Recorded at Monument Studios, Nashville and Lyn-Lou Studios, Memphis in 1969 and released the same year, the album contained the single Roosevelt And Ira Lee. It was produced by Billy Swan and engineered by Tommy Strong and Mort Thomasson.


    The album contains the track Rainy Night In Georgia popularized by R&B vocalist Brook Benton in 1970. It reached #4 on the Pop Singles and #2 on the Adult Contemporary charts, respectively. The RIAA certified the single Gold for sales of one million copies. In 2004, it was ranked #498 on the List of Rolling Stone's 500 Greatest Songs of All Time. David Ruffin recorded a cover version of the song the same year as Benton, however, Motown for unknown reasons did not release the album.


    The song has been covered by a number of musicians, including Ray Charles, Otis Rush, Randy Crawford, Tennessee Ernie Ford, Amos Garrett, Hank Williams, Jr., Shelby Lynne, John Holt, Nicky Thomas, by the duet of Conway Twitty and Sam Moore, Aaron Neville, and reggae band The Gladiators.

    Best Of Spinners


    Celebrate 4 Decades Of The Spinners With Their Greatest Hits LP From 1978!


    First Time 180 Gram Vinyl Presentation


    Featuring The Legendary Turntable Cover Artwork


    Mastered From The Original Atlantic Records Tapes By Joe Reagoso


    In 1979, superstar R&B veterans The Spinners were rewarded by their label Atlantic Records with their first
    greatest hits album simply titled The Best of Spinners. Featuring the classic line-up of the Phillipe Soul Wynn,
    Henry Fambrough, Pervis Jackson, Bobbie Smith and Billy Henderson, these Detroit superstars ruled the charts
    for many soulful years. Featuring a ton of smash hits produced and written by the likes of Philly favorites Thom
    Bell and Linda Creed, and featuring The Sound Of Philadelphia and Motown players like MFSB, and the Funk
    Brothers' Bob Babbit, The Best of Spinners album has become one of their most loved works in their stunning
    gold and platinum career.


    With superlative chart topping pop and R&B classics like Could It Be I'm Falling In Love, I'll Be Around and
    Mighty Love, plus brilliant dance smashes like The Rubberband Man, The Best of Spinners album would go on
    to become one of the best-selling albums in their extensive catalog. The long out of print original version of this
    greatest hits masterpiece also includes the history making duet with Dionne Warwick and their chart topper
    Then Came You.


    Dig deeper into the Philly and Detroit grooves and there you find even more platinum plus treasures like
    the masterful One of a Kind (Love Affair), the powerful They Just Can't Stop It the (Games People Play) plus the
    tender ballads Sadie and How Could I Let You Get Away, making The Best of Spinners one of the finest overviews
    ever of this stellar supergroup.


    Therefore it is with much excitement to announce the first time 180 Gram Audiophile Vinyl release of the
    legendary Spinners greatest hits masterpiece The Best of Spinners. Mastered impeccably by Joe "Philly Soul"
    Reagoso at Friday Music Studios and Capitol Mastering, this stunning LP was long overdue for an audiophile
    vinyl release.


    In addition to all the great hits within, this limited edition anniversary collection also includes the very trendy
    turntable cover artwork, not seen in years in the LP cover format, truly enhancing this album's re-release and
    forever honoring the act and their five star masterwork achievement. We believe this wonderful new audiophile
    release of The Best of Spinners will become one of the most anticipated classic soul releases of the summer!

    Ranked 68/500 on Rolling Stone Magazine's 500 Greatest Albums of All Time.


    Michael Jackson recorded solo prior to Off the Wall, but the 1979 album was undoubtedly his breakthrough and it firmly established the former Motown star as a prolific charting solo artist in his own right. Disco beats accompany a fusion of rock, soul and funk here in a visionary mix that is equal parts dancefloor and lush ballads.


    Songs like Don't Stop Till You Get Enough, Off The Wall, Rock With You, She's Out Of My Life and Girlfriend display the brilliant songwriting and intoxicating blend of melody and rhythm that would turn Jackson into the biggest pop star in the world.

    Innervisions (Colored)

    Ranked 23/500 on Rolling Stone Magazine's 500 Greatest Albums of All Time.


    The sixteenth album by American musician Stevie Wonder, released August 3, 1973 on Motown Records; a landmark recording of his classic period.The nine tracks of Innervisions encompass a wide range of themes and issues: from drug abuse in Too High, through social anger in Living for the City, to love in the ballads All in Love is Fair and Golden Lady.


    As with many of Stevie Wonder's albums the lyrics, composition and production are almost entirely his own work, with the ARP synthesizer used prominently throughout the album. This instrument was a common motif among musicians of the time because of its ability to construct a complete sound environment. Wonder was the first black artist to experiment with this technology on a mass scale, and Innervisions was hugely influential on the subsequent future of commercial black music. He also played all or virtually all instruments on six of the album's nine tracks, making most of Innervisions a representative one-man band.

    This Old Heart Of Mine

    This Old Heart of Mine is the fourth album released by The Isley Brothers in 1966, on the Tamla (Motown) label. The album, their first with the seminal Detroit-based music label, yielded the Isleys' biggest hit in their early period with the title track. Other charted singles including Take Some Time Out for Love and I Guess I'll Always Love You. The album's cover was not controversial at the time, but was criticized years later by activists because it did not depict the three African American brothers, instead using a picture of two white teenage lovers on a beach. Defenders say this was/is totally irrelevant since it was an artistic choice only. The Isley Brothers are today considered another one of the seminal Detroit groups of their era.

    Do The Right Thing

    The soundtrack for director Spike Lee's Do the Right Thing is a window into the classics hip-hop/R&B scene circa 1989. Peppered with new jack era slabs of wax from the likes of Public Enemy (the iconic Fight the Power), summer party staples from E.U. (Party Hearty) and Teddy Riley (My Fantasy), and deep slow jams from Perri and Al Jarreau, it's the perfect background for a hot night in the city, and like the film itself, it's both frivolous and foreboding.

    I Want You

    The thirteenth studio album by American soul musician Marvin Gaye, released March 16, 1976, on Motown-subsidiary label Tamla Records. Recording sessions for the album took place throughout 1975 and 1976 at Motown Recording Studios, also known as Hitsville West, and Gaye's personal studio Marvin's Room in Los Angeles, California. The album has often been noted by critics for producer Leon Ware's exotic, low-key production and the erotic, sexual themes in his and Gaye's songwriting. The album's cover artwork adapts neo-mannerist artist Ernie Barnes's famous painting The Sugar Shack (1971). I Want You consisted of Marvin Gaye's first recorded studio material since his highly successful and well-received album Let's Get It On (1973). While it marked a change in musical direction for Gaye, departing from his trademark Motown and doo-wop-influenced sound for funky, light-disco soul, the album maintained and expanded on his previous work's sexual themes. I Want You has earned retrospective recognition from writers and music critics as one of Gaye's most controversial works and influential to such musical styles as disco, quiet storm, R&B, and neo soul.

    Doo-Wops and Hooligans

    It's better if you don't understand; just listen and have a good time. That's the response Bruno Mars will give you with a smile when asked to describe his sound and music. He would much rather sing, perform and write his songs than talk about them, but that is becoming more and more unavoidable these days. It might seem that Mars appeared out of nowhere, co-writing, producing and performing on B.o.B's #1 Nothin' On You followed by Travis McCoy's chart-climbing Billionaire, but he makes one thing clear: It's not an overnight success.



    Mars is a multitalented singer, songwriter, producer and musician who feels most at home when he's performing. Born to a musical family in Honolulu, Hawaii, he was practically raised on the stage. His father, a Latin percussionist from Brooklyn, organized a Vegas-style revue that featured the entire family, including his mother, a talented vocalist. When a four-year-old Mars observed his family performing Motown hits, doo-wop medleys and impersonations for enthusiastic crowds all over his native Waikiki Beach, I was jealous! says Mars with a laugh. My dad put me on stage and I remember singing an Elvis song and that was it. Ever since that moment, I've been addicted.



    As soon as he graduated high school, Mars left Hawaii for Los Angeles with dreams of launching his career as a performer. Those dreams got put on hold, however, when The Smeezingtons, the songwriting/production team he founded with Philip Lawrence and Ari Levine, suddenly took off. The pair has crafted major hits for a diverse roster of talent, including Flo Rida's Right Round, Travis McCoy's Billionaire, Brandy's Long Distance and K'Naan's Waving Flags, which was the theme song for the World Cup.



    On the heels of Nothin' on You and Billionaire and as a preview of what's to come from Bruno Mars, Elektra Records released a 4-song EP aptly titled It's Better If You Don't Understand. The title is taken from a lyric to The Other Side; one of the songs included that features Cee-Lo Green and re-teams Mars with B.o.B. In preparation for this, his full length debut, Doo-Wops And Hooligans, Bruno recently released his first single Just The Way You Are.

    Wish It Would Rain

    The Temptations Wish It Would Rain is a 1968 album by The Temptations for the Gordy (Motown) label. It was the final release from the group's Classic-5 era, during which David Ruffin, Eddie Kendricks, Paul Williams, Melvin Franklin, and Otis Williams constituted the Temptations' lineup.


    Wish It Would Rain also marks the last Temptations solo album to focus on the classic Motown Sound, and the last to feature production from Smokey Robinson.


    Included on Wish It Would Rain are the hit singles I Wish It Would Rain and I Could Never Love Another (After Loving You), both featuring Ruffin on lead vocals and co-written by Motown writer Roger Penzabene, who committed suicide on New Years Eve 1967 because of the breakup described in these two songs. I Wish It Would Rain's b-side, I Truly, Truly Believe, is a rare solo showcase for Franklin, the group's bass singer.


    The third single, Please Return Your Love to Me, features Kendricks on lead, and was released in July after Ruffin's departure. The song's b-side, How Could I Forget (led by Williams), is not included here, because it was newly recorded on June 29 to accompany the a-side.

    I Hear A Symphony

    Like no other, Motown's founder Berry Gordy knew how to market 'his' acts. The Supremes (later named Diana Ross & The Supremes) were his mainstream Pop offering, bridging the gap between Soul and popular music, while even incorporating Classic themes (like A Lover's Concerto was inspired by Bach).


    I Hear A Symphony (1966) contains some of the best tunes written by famed producing trio Holland-Dozier-Holland, as well as great cover versions of popular songs like Unchained Melody and the Beatles' Yesterday.

    Studio One Soul

    Studio One was modeled on the record labels that had their own crack studio house bands, labels and studios like Stax in Memphis, Motown in Detroit, Muscle Shoals in Alabama and Criteria in Florida, so it was natural that at Studio One versions of some of the most influential soul records would be reworked in a Jamaican idiom for playing on the powerful sound systems, sometimes with different titles and sometimes with different composer credits, too, and some of the very best are rounded up here.
