What can I say here...Marvin Gaye is the benchmark for any recording artist whether in the studio or live in concert.

I had this in cassette tape format back in the 70's, and have been looking for the CD for a long time!

This excellent CD documents one of the greatest singers,songwriters at their best coming off one of the most influential albums of all times "What's Going On". Marvin was abscent from the stage prior to this recorded document some two years. A performer that was particularly parnoid about performing live. What this CD illustrates is the amazing power this man had once he hit the stage. From the opening strains of the overture to the closing of What's Goin On you know you're in for something of a life time. As in added bonus on this cd they added the previously unreleased Flyin High(In The Friendly Sky) Mercy Mercy Me(The Ecology), Keep Gettin It On, Introduction To The Orchestra which didnt appear on the orginal album verison or the orginal Cd verison . Highlites on this fabolous CD Trouble Man, " Distant Lover" Inner City Blues. You know what? the whole cd is so wonderful you really cant pick a highlite. If you did not have this in your collection i certainly highly recommend this it should be in your collection. This is the best document of a genius at work. His legacy will forever live on pick this up.

It's really a lost art. Gone are the days when top flight soul singers toured with a full ochestra. The '70's concerts on the R&B scene benefited from the Jazz era (in this case, the big band era) performers. Believe me, you never hear anything like the Marvin's backup band today.
Marvin Gaye was never completely comfortable on stage. His vocals here rarely rises to the full zenith witness on vinly. But then again by the time of "Let's Get it On", Gaye had adopted a laid-back approach(which latter on influenced Frankie Beverley) to his music and it is very evident on this live recording.
Highlights on the album are "Trouble Man", "Distant Lover" and '60's medley suite. The two big hits are nothing special and pale considerably to the studio versions.
For the most part the audio quality is fine, if not a little "too sweet". But even this new remastered CD contains the same annoying mic feedbacks found on the orignal LP.

Buy this just for Distant Lover alone. The song itself is brilliant anyway, but the version here is even better than the studio version on Let's Get It On and IMHO the most intense soul track ever recorded; the best singer of all time, Gene Page's orchestra with Ernie Watts on saxophone and a screaming audience whip eachother into a frenzy over that slow, restrained groove. "Do you wanna hear me scream, plleeaasse!"

This cd makes you wanna go buy all his material the man was clearly a musical geneis and it is personified through his music. Despite, a rough life Marvin managed to leave it all behind when it came to making hits. He the best male singer that ever lived. R.I.P. Marvin.

Live is from Marvin Gaye's 1973 comeback concert in Oakland. He had not performed live in almost two years at that point and he is a little nervous about his performance. He shouldn't have worried as he is in top form. He runs through most of his current hits from the time with "Trouble Man", "Inner City Blues" and "Distant Lover" standing out. The album contains the only appearance of his ode to his lover "Jan". He seems to strain a bit on the "Fossil Medley" and the album's closers "Let's Get It On" and "What's Going On". Overall, it is another great album from Mr. Gaye.

...when I first got this, when it originally was released, I thought, "So..? Marvin's done a live album".
This came out right on the heels of MPG's come get to this, superhot, slapshot, superbly done 'Let's Get it On':it came out in 74-75. We were still playing 'Let's Get it On', fergoshsakes. I listened to 'Live' again recently and I got an adult eye's view of it.
I originally thought, well who knows why Motown released such a slipshod, erratic product? But, whatever Marvin was going thru with wives, girlfriends, Gordy, the Gene Page Orchestra (which seemed like they were on autopilot and/or they really could not hear the rhythm section sometimes...) BACK THEN, the finished product, when I consider it NOW, is fabulous. That, my friends, is what great music can do. And I ain't speaking from a nostalgic haze, either.
Fabulous, I tellya. Particularly "Distant Lover", the extended version of "Trouble Man" when Marvin gets behind the piana and tickles the ivories, and the incredible "How Sweet It Is (To Be Loved By You)", in which he let's the audience in on the secret, so to speak. That cut alone, even as flawed as it is, represented the essence of the man. And if you are not moved by it, then, certainly, you have a hard time being moved by anything.
You also must remember of this performance, Marvin was already considered past his prime for that kinda audience reaction--ie, girls screaming like they were in a Jackson Five or Beatles concert. Simply stated, a primo product... get it before it is out of print!

A powerhouse showcase for Gaye's simmering-yet-explosive sensuality and his incomparable talent, LIVE! is the aural document of one all-time greatest performers at his absolute peak. Gaye, then and forever Motown's beautiful prince charming, had the rare gift of performing concerts at frenetic (almost breakneck) pace without rushing the show moments or destroying the intimacy. In other words, Gaye's performances often had an exhilarating momentum yet never became exhausting or impersonal. As cliché as it sounds, you always felt that Gaye was singing from the very bottom of his heart.

Gaye's sixties' hits are largely performed in one terrific hit-packed medley, while his seventies' receive the full-length treatment. The sixties' medley is both joyful and somewhat bittersweet as it recalls a bygone era of a seemingly less pained Gaye, while Gaye's performances of his then-recent hits are alternately heartbreaking confessions or sensual knockouts. Gaye is in phenomenal voice throughout, delivering top-notch renditions of "Let's Get It On" and "What's Going On." Worthy of particular praise is his ethereal, pleading performance of "Distant Lover" (#28 Pop, #12 R&B), which was later issued as a single and became a hit in this thrilling live incarnation.

As Marvin's first solo release since the massive success LET'S GET IT ON, LIVE! flew into the Top Ten and proved that live albums could be big sellers as well. Although I also love the LONDON PALLADIUM concert disc, dedicated fans owe it to themselves to own this one too.
