Marvin Gaye — Trouble Man ... CD 4.99

Marvin Marvin Marvin – just when we thought you couldn't impress us any more, you took it to the next level! Trouble Man is a heck of a wonderful surprise from an artist that most folks really only knew as a singer – a fantastically funky blacksploitation soundtrack, conceived and composed by Marvin himself – and served up with some occasional vocals that work beautifully with the album's cool instrumental grooves! The set's easily one of Gaye's most righteous records ever – almost a second chapter to What's Going On, but more instrumental – and like that classic set, it really shows the whole new range of vision that Marvin was able to work in the studio. Gaye gets a bit of arranging help on some tracks from Gene Page and JJ Johnson – and the album's filled with great cuts – including the landmark "T Plays It Cool", plus other gems like "Don't Mess With Mister T", "Main Theme From Trouble Man", "The Break In", and "T Stands For Trouble". Very funky, very sophisticated, and very soulful! (Original pressing in the fold-out cover. Side 1 has a mark that clicks a bit on tracks one and two. Cover has a cutout notch and some ring & edge wear. Labels have some marker.)  © 1996-2014, Dusty Groove, Inc.

Tamla, 1968. Very Good
Marvin's definitely in the groove on this set – cooking on all burners with a host of late 60s Motown hits – bad-stepping his way towards some of the more mature moments to come in the 70s! The album's probably best remembered for the cut "I Heard It Through The Grapevine" ... LP, Vinyl record album
People Hold On
Tamla, 1972. Very Good-
A truly amazing album – unlike anything Eddie Kendricks ever did before, or since – and one of those records that really helped shape the sound of soul in the 70s! The music is as rich and powerful as the image on the cover – with some righteous undercurrents that really mark the ... LP, Vinyl record album
In Square Circle
Tamla, 1985. Sealed Gatefold
Mid 80s, and while never that bad (nothing Stevie does is ever terrible – well, except for "Don't Drive Drunk"!), the record lacks that certain greatness that you'll find on even the lesser Stevie Wonder albums. Titles include "Stranger On The Shore Of Love", "Spiritu ... LP, Vinyl record album
Easy
Tamla, 1969. Very Good+
The last set of duets from the team of Marvin Gaye and Tammi Terrell – and a sublime set of tracks that really stretches their partnership even further than before! It's no secret that Terrell was Marvin's favorite partner in the studio – and you can really hear his strong feeling for ... LP, Vinyl record album
Eddie Kendricks At His Best
Tamla, Early 70s. Near Mint-
Sublime groovers from Eddie's boogie period – a time when he revived his career brilliantly, by hooking a groove and helping to take Motown back onto the dancefloors! The set's filled with classic uptempo numbers – with 10 tracks in all: "Girl You Need A Change Of Mind (part ... LP, Vinyl record album
Greatest Hits – From The Beginning
Tamla, 1960s. Near Mint- 2LP Gatefold
Like the sticker on the cover says – 2 record album, 22 hit songs! This one's got just about all you'd need from the early days of Smokey & The Miracles – perfect falsetto harmony soul that shaped a generation of singers, and which was some of Motown's greatest work in the early ...

Tamla/Natural Resources, 1962. Near Mint-
Titles include "I'll Try Something New", "He Don't Care About Me", "I've Been Good To You", "This I Swear I Promise", "On The Street Where You Live", "If Your Mother Only Knew", and "A Love That Can Never Be". ... LP, Vinyl record album
Touch The Sky
Tamla, 1982. Near Mint-
Smooth Smokey at the height of his powers – gliding along in the quiet storm groove that he helped to invent, and still sounding surprisingly down to earth – thanks to an intimate and relaxed feel to the set! Despite the date of the album, the instrumentation is nicely restrained, and ... LP, Vinyl record album
Tamla, 1981. Very Good+
An obscure later album by Syreeta – but still a great one! The lady's moving into an 80s groove on most of these cuts – but she's still got that sweet heavenly vocal approach, very similar to Minnie Riperton, whose late style she's taking up on a number of the album's smooth, well ... LP, Vinyl record album
Yes It's You Lady
Tamla, 1982. Very Good
A slightly more-grooving record than some of Smokey's others from the time – done in a style that rolls around in a mostly-midtempo mode. There's almost a gentle 80s groove approach at times, although some of the tunes on the set are definitely in that stone mellow love song style that was ... LP, Vinyl record album
