An incredible record – quite possibly our favorite ever by Marvin Gaye! The album is quite unique – written by Leon Ware, and recorded in collaboration with him – done as a "suite" of tracks based on themes of passion, joy, and new love – all of which were very much on the mind of Marvin during his troubled years of the mid 70s. The whole thing's beautifully put together – superbly orchestrated with just the right funky touches, and even a sweet bit of electronics to give the set a nice edge. An amazing album – one of those soul records that goes deeper and deeper than you ever thought pop music could go – filled with great tracks that include "I Want You", "After the Dance", "Come Live With Me", and "Since I Had You". Genius – pure genius! Beautifully expanded, too – with 17 bonus tracks that include a wealth of alternate mixes, outtakes, and demos that get at the Pet Sounds-like production style of this masterpiece – plus a promo only vocal version of "I Want You", and instrumentals of "I Want You" and "Strange Love".  © 1996-2014, Dusty Groove, Inc.

Geffen, 2005. Used
Mary J Blige broke through well over a decade ago, but Breakthrough is an apt title for her eighth album – as it not only busts up the morass of mid 00s urban radio fodder – it also breaks through MJB's own creative doldrums – adding up her best work in years! It's certainly not ... CD

16 of Otis Redding's best numbers, pulled together out of the Stax vaults after Atlantic had more or less completely taken over the Memphis label. Includes "I Can't Turn You Loose", "I've Been Loving You Too Long", "Fa-Fa-Fa-Fa-Fa (Sad Song)", "Try A Little ... CD
