Incredible stuff – really really wonderful, and jam-packed with rare material that's never been released before! First off, you get the original Let's Get It On LP – an amazing record that stunned the world almost as much as Marvin's previous effort, What's Going On. Like that one, this album's an amazingly unified batch of tracks – with a visionary message about sex and love that is as honest and bracing as the politics and social commentary of his previous record. That set features 8 tracks on the CD – slow jam classics like "You Sure Love To Ball", "Distant Lover", and "Let's Get It On" – plus "Come Get To This", "Just to Keep You Satisfied", and "If I Should Die Tonight". After that, the set features 9 "session" tracks that show how Marvin built the album – plus some amazing funky numbers that never got issued properly. After that, there's 10 demos and alternate mixes – including versions of some of the tracks that will really surprise you. Then, after all that, there's another to tracks called "working the groove", which show Marvin working with Hal Davis, Willie Hutch, and others – to craft slow funky tunes that will blow your mind! All told, there's an additional 29 tracks added to the original album – with many many gems that are as great as that one. Titles include "The World Is Rated X", "Where Are We Going?", "You're The Man", "Symphony", "Cakes", "My Love Is Growing", "Song #3", "I Love You Secretly", "Running From Love", "Mandota", "You Are That Special One", and "We Can Make It Baby".

A bit smoother than early days, but still very nice and soulful – and did we expect any less from Stevie? The record's got a nicely flanged-out soul groove – with a style that kind of expands on the vocal and keyboard production of the early 70s, taking the groove towards a sound that ... CD

Dazz Band keep it plenty live on this early 80s gem – a killer set from the group's hit run for Motown! The set's got a bouncy groove that's very much in the best Motown funk style at the time – lots of bass at the bottom, and plenty tight on production – but never as smooth or ... CD
