Look at that cheeky Smile. Marvin Gaye is all over the news these days. A wee while ago a jury decided that Robin Thicke and Pharell Williams had infringed copyright in the making of their hit single Blurred Lines...I know you want it! Apparently they copied elements of Marvin Gaye's Got To Give It Up. #Keching...Gaye’s family were subsequently awarded $7.4 million. Coincidentally, Motown and Universal Music have now announced an extensive celebration of his career across a series with a 7 X LP box set! Perfect timing boys...poor Robin. Poor Pharrell. Well...
The stereo mixes include début The Soulful Moods of Marvin Gaye, That Stubborn Kinda Fellow and When I’m Alone I Cry for the first time ever in vinyl format, as well as Hello Broadway…This Is Marvin, Together, the classic How Sweet It Is to Be Loved by You , and A Tribute to the Great Nat “King” Cole. That was a long sentence!
