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.
