Hello Broadway

LP (Item 21941) Tamla, 1964 — Condition: Sealed

Nothing too Broadway here – as the album's a warmly soulful set that shows a mellower side of Marvin Gaye for the 60s – the deeper, more jazz-inclined side of his vocals, which makes for a nice contrast to his bigger hits of the time! Gene Page handled most of the arrangements, so you can bet that the sound is mighty solid – a groove that gets past standard Motown modes of the time, and opens up with a hint of the more sophisticated Marvin to come in the 70s! It's great to hear Gaye take his own turn with familiar tunes like these – and titles include "Walk On The Wild Side", "Hello Broadway", "My Way", "What Kind Of Fool I Am", "People", "The Party's Over", "Days Of Wine & Roses", and "This Is The Life".  © 1996-2021, Dusty Groove, Inc.
(Sealed 60s pressing! Cover has a small cutout hole in one corner.)

Sealed

This is what it says, that the record is still held fast in shrink-wrap. We tend to be pretty suspicious about these things, so if the shrink-wrap doesn't look original, or if the record seems to have undergone some damage over time, we'll probably take it out of the wrapper to ensure that it's in good shape — which is why we don't have more of these. In some cases the shrink-wrap may be torn in spots, but if it's not possible the record has been taken out and played, the record will still qualify as "Sealed".

Additional Marks & Notes

If something is noteworthy, we try to note it in the comments — especially if it is an oddity that is the only wrong thing about the record. This might include, but isn't limited to, warped records, tracks that skip, cover damage or wear as noted above, or strictly cosmetic flaws.

Amazing early work from Marvin Gaye – a set that's more jazz than soul, with a really unique sort of sound!

A sweet groover from the Marvelettes – and a record that completely re-casts their sound for the Motown of the 70s!

Valerie Simpson
Tamla, 1972. Very Good+
Valerie Simpson really shines in the spotlight here, on an early solo outing for Motown – not yet paired with Nick Ashford at a vocal level, but still getting plenty of help from her future musical partner on both production and songwriting!
