Marvin Gaye's Greatest Hits

Temporarily Out Of Stock

LP, Vinyl record album

❔

Great cuts from the second decade of Marvin Gaye's career at Motown – really magic numbers pulled from that 70s period when he was really taking off with his music! There's a righteous undercurrent here that goes way beyond the simple soul of the 60s – and the set offers a great cross-section of the many moods that Marvin was putting forth at the time. Pure niceness all the way through – with tracks that include "Let's Get It On", "I Want You", "How Sweet It Is (To Be Loved By You)", "I Heard It Through The Grapevine", "Mercy Mercy Me (The Ecology)", "What's Going On", "After The Dance", "Can I Get A Witness", "Trouble Man", and "Distant Lover (Live)".  © 1996-2020, Dusty Groove, Inc.
(Scover has some light wear and writing in pen.)

Very Good + (plus)

  • Vinyl should be very clean, but can have less luster than near mint.
  • Should still shine under a light, but one or two marks may show up when tilted.
  • Can have a few small marks that may show up easily, but which do not affect play at all. Most marks of this quality will disappear when the record is tilted, and will not be felt with the back of a fingernail.
  • This is the kind of record that will play "near mint", but which will have some signs of use (although not major ones).
  • May have slight surface noise when played.

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.

Tamla, 1963. Very Good
One of the best of the 60s live sets from Motown – a sublime showcase for the talents of a young Marvin Gaye! There's a feel here that's a bit looser, and almost a bit rougher than some of Marvin's other records from the time – and there's almost a bit more force in his vocals than on ...

Marvin Gaye

Here, My Dear
Motown, 1978. Very Good+ 2LP Gatefold
Wonderful stuff – and one of our favorite-ever Marvin Gaye albums! This is the legendary two-record set that Marvin wrote and recorded as an alimony payment to his ex-wife Anna Gordy (the story's pretty long, and we won't get into it here – suffice it to say that when stars get a ...

Marvin Gaye

In Our Lifetime
Tamla, 1981. Very Good+
Marvin Gaye's last album for Motown – and a wonderful cap to a great run of sexy soul for the 70s – filled with great mellow grooves that rival the genius of his earlier work in the decade! There's a glowing, slow-burning feel to some of the best numbers here – a vibe that's ... LP, Vinyl record album

Smokey Robinson & The Miracles

Going To A Go Go
Tamla, 1965. Very Good+
Legendary stuff from Smokey Robinson and his wonderful group – a killer set from the second all-male version of The Miracles – recorded with some wonderfully soaring harmonies! The group's got a nice bite on the bottom here – a groove to go with the "go go" promised in ... LP, Vinyl record album

Smokey Robinson

Deep In My Soul
Tamla, 1977. Very Good+
A great bridge between Smokey's seminal Quiet Storm album and the mellower sound of his 80s work – done in a way that still preserves the gentle earthy sound of the former, without any of the too-slick sounds of the latter! The arrangements are relatively lean throughout, and Smokey's vocals ... LP, Vinyl record album

Brenda Holloway

Every Little Bit Hurts
Tamla/Motown, 1964. Near Mint-
Classic heartbreaking soul from Brenda Holloway – one of the weepiest early records on Motown, as you might guess from the title! The style here is almost more New York uptown than Detroit at times – a fair bit like Maxine Brown with its mix of strength and fragility on the vocals, and ... LP, Vinyl record album
Tamla, 1979. Very Good+ 2LP Gatefold
Very high concept work from Stevie Wonder! The record is, in fact, about the "secret life of plants" – partially used as a soundtrack for a film of the same name, but also acting as kind of a storybook in itself! Stevie's exploring a wide range of plant life and plant themes on ... LP, Vinyl record album

Tamla/Motown (UK), Late 60s. Near Mint-
A cool 70s UK collection – one that features 20 tracks that played big on the mod scene in London during the 60s – with titles that include "Helpless" by Kim Weston, "First I Look At The Purse" by The Contours, "Lonely Lonely Girl Am I" by The Velvelettes, ... LP, Vinyl record album

Eddie Kendricks

Hit Man
Tamla, 1975. Very Good
Eddie certainly was the "hit man" on this one – a tight album of hard stepping soul tracks, mostly cut in Eddie's famous "boogie" mode of the mid 70s! The cuts mix wonderful soul vocals with some tight jazzy instrumentation – laid down by players like Wah Wah Ragin, ... LP, Vinyl record album
