By Steve Vrana HALL OF FAMETOP 1000 REVIEWER on June 16, 2000
Format: Audio CD
There are several Marvin Gaye compilations available--both single-disc and box set. So it simply becomes a matter of finances which one you choose. For the budget-minded this collection is ideal. Not only do you get every Top 10 Motown hit (except for the inexplicable omission of his first--"Pride and Joy"), you also get his four Top 10 hits with Tammi Terrell: "Your Precious Love," "If I Could Build My Whole World Around You," "Ain't Nothing Like the Real Thing" and "You're All I Need To Get By." [Before anyone gripes about the absence of 1982's "Sexual Healing," you need to remember that Gaye had switched labels to Columbia by then.]
Like labelmate Stevie Wonder, Gaye's Sixties hits were smart pop songs with catchy hooks and fairly safe subjects--love and romance being the principal. Like Wonder, Gaye too would eventually wrest creative control from the powers that be at Motown and by the early Seventies was creating socially conscious songs like "What's Going On," "Mercy Mercy Me (The Ecology)" and "Inner City Blues (Make Me Wanna Holler)."
This is a terrific, if concise, overview of the genius of Marvin Gaye. Originally released in 1983, these tracks have been remastered and sound simply amazing. If your record library doesn't already include these songs, this is a great place to start. HIGHLY RECOMMENDED

This is an amazing Cd from one of Motown's most beloved and successful artists.

Marvin Gaye has an outstanding voice. Perhaps his most distinctive quality is his ability to infuse each song with deep emotion, and great wailing vocals, and the production values are excellent.

Have you ever listened to a song and been emotionally moved by it? What's going on does is that kind of song. There is a certain quality of personal pain that he conveys in this song lamenting the untimely death of young black men through the violence in society.

I have been reading about Marvin, and his untimely death by his father's hand, only hints at the undercurrents of tragedy, insecurity and self destructiveness that ran through his life.

This album has quite an emotional range, including Grapevine, Let's Gets it on, and How sweet it is. If you like Marvin you'll love this album. As you would expect from a greatest hits album, the song quality is very good.

Two of his best hits You're all I need to get by and Ain't nothing like the real thing were recorded with singing partner Tammi Terell, who died young from a brain hemorrhage. Sexual Healing which was recorded on the Columbia label is not on this album.

A little known fact about Marvin is that before he achieved fame he was a drummer with Smokey Robinson.

This CD is one of my most played albums in my collection, because it has "Every Great Motown Hit" of Marvin Gaye. Don't be confused by its price compared to every other Greatest Hits album, because this beats anyone I have ever heard. Every song will have you in stitches and will make you want to experience more music by similar artists. This was my first album from the sixties/seventies, and not it is my favorite genre of music. Don't even bother to listen to this album before you buy it, because you will automatically be put in a trance by it. Enjoy!

In Nov.1993 I bought my first CD player & my first CD,which was this one. A couple months before,I bought a cheap cassette of this album,but my cassette deck ate it.I got fed up with tapes & got into CD's & I've bought hundreds since. I couldn't give this 5 stars because of its title. This album doesn't have anywhere near "every great Motown hit of Marvin Gaye". If I listed other great Motown hits of Marvin Gaye,they could & should have made this at least a 2 disc set. I know that years later, better Gaye compiliations came out & I wish I had waited.

I was never a Marvin Gaye fan before I bought this album. He was honestly a little before my time. As a teenager who's brought up in an age of crappy pop & rap, I recently went out looking for some real musicians. This was one of the artists I sought out, & man I am glad I found him. I found it incredibly refreshing album, this guy is an exquisite artist. Buy this album.

If you ever ask anyone who knows R&B there is no doubt this name will come up, Marvin Gaye. His tranquil voice and his songs of love, fun, poverty, and war make his music an inspiration to all ages. There is just so much passion in his voice with all of his songs it makes you just want to sing. And being a recent fan I am finding that many artists sample his music. His version of "Heard It through the Grapevine" is the best version out of the several other musicians who have "attempted" to do it. "What's Goin' On" is a beautiful anthem that describes all of the pain war causes and is one of the world's greatest songs. This CD perfectly captures his amazing legacy and I believe there is only one word to describe it, GREATNESS.

Marvin Gaye was one of the greatist if not the greatist singers of all time and this cd proves it beyond a shadow of a doubt! I have the Marvin Anthoogy 2 disc set but it doesnt sound as good as this digitally remastered one.Marvin's exceptional voice sound louder and clearer than ever before!!what a waste of talent that this man had to go(4-1-84) so young you must get this disc!!!highly recommended!!!!!!!
