Marvin in his prime backed by the Funk Brothers - Brilliant
March 30, 2019
Recorded in the 70s between What's Going On? and Let's Get it On, these songs finally received a proper release. Marvin was riding a creative peak as he broke free from Barry Gordy and the Motown formula to focus on subjects like social issues and war. The legendary Funk Brothers backed Marvin on these recordings after playing uncredited on hundreds of hits by Motown artists. Unlike Motown, they were able to relax, be creative, take their time, and play how they wanted on Marvin's records.
Marvin Gaye at his creative peak and the Funk Brothers unleashed. Hell Yes!
