From first glance, when you look at something like a cover of a greatest hits album like this, you think 'wow, nice rare photo' and then you put the album in and the same stuff you had in the other greatest-hits album of the same artist is reduced to rubbish.

Not the case with Marvin Gaye. Re-released after UTV ran out of copies of "The Very Best of Marvin Gaye" (which probably had a better booklet than the one in "Gold" but hey), "Gold: Marvin Gaye" integrates Marvin's early 1960s beginnings when he was mixing rock, blues and gospel (or soul music) in songs like "Stubborn Kind of Fellow", "Hitch Hike" and "Pride & Joy", his mid-1960s soul discovery in songs like "How Sweet It Is", "I'll Be Doggone" and "Ain't That Peculiar", his late-1960s duos with Tammi Terrell (with the Kim Weston duet added in good measures), his late-1960s coming out party as a gritty soul belter in songs like "You", "Too Busy Thinking About My Baby", "That's the Way Love Is" and his 1968 masterpiece, "I Heard It Through the Grapevine" together with the 1970's gems that we all know and love like "What's Going On", "Mercy Mercy Me", "Inner City Blues", "Trouble Man", "Let's Get It On", "Come Get to This", the live version of "Distant Lover" (shown in its full six and some twenty minutes), "I Want You", and the entire 11-minute "Got to Give It Up" and his early-1980s funk/soul synthesis/gem "Sexual Healing".

Exactly why Motown chose to repackage this collection is unclear, but the original now appears to be out of print. If you didn't buy the earlier compilation, you can buy it in this re-packaged form. Obviously, if you bought the original, you don't need this.

This comprehensive collection contains all Marvin's important American hits as well as highlighting other aspects of his music, including his political songs of the seventies. His British hits were sometimes different from his American hits. Three UK top ten hits are missing, though as this is an American compilation, there is no reason why they should have been included. Abraham Martin and John was an American hit for Smokey Robinson and the Miracles - perhaps it was felt that Marvin's version was better for the UK market. You are everything, a duet with Diana Ross, made the UK top five. Onion song, a duet credited as being with Tammi Terrell but recorded with a stand-in, made the UK top ten.

The classic American hits (not all of which charted in Britain) are all here including Can I get a witness, How sweet it is, I'll be doggone, Ain't that peculiar, I heard it through the grapevine, Too busy thinking about my baby, That's the way love is. What's going on, Mercy mercy me, Trouble man, Let's get it on and Got to give it up. Some of his duets are here, too, including Ain't no mountain high enough, Your precious love, If I could build my whole world around you, Ain't nothing like the real thing, You're all I need to get by (all with Tammi Terrell) and It takes two (with Kim Weston).

Marvin always considered himself a balladeer like Frank Sinatra or Nat King Cole rather than a typical R+B singer, but his early attempts to establish himself in this role were not a success.

I have the recent Marvin Gaye Deluxe remasters of What's Going On; Let's Get It On and I Want You.
I don't have anything earlier though and Disc 1 of this set is perfect for me and I like having Disc 2 anyway.
Disc 1 has all the early hits before Marvin took total charge of his career and recordings. All the early hits are here and nicely mastered.

I Have many of the "GOLD" sets and I appreciate them. Yes, sometimes they are a repackage of an existing sets (see Yes: Gold) but other sets are pretty unique and very necessary.

If you need a good Marvin Gaye Compilation this is where to start.

I downloaded this album Saturday night (2/21/09) for the sole purpose of getting the long version of "Got To Give It Up" (disc 2 - track 11) which the site says is 11 minutes 52 seconds long. You cannot buy that track alone. After the download completed I noticed that the track was actually only 8 minutes long. It cut off the last few minutes which, in my opinion, are what make the song unique. The other songs appeared to be fine as I played the album. I wrote a letter to customer service and they quickly responded. I was given a full refund and they acknowledged the problem. I was told it would be fixed in the coming week.

So, my low rating is not regarding the album. Its obviously a great album. Also, I'm not criticizing Amazon. I think they handled this extremely well (assuming the track does get fixed). What I'm saying is keep an eye out on this track.

I truly Love this man, and I don't even know him.... but through his music I have found a friend to model after..........NO one greater than MG... I was almost in tears listening to his lyrics.. his music is a reflection of his time, and times gone by.. I grew up listening to his music at age 4, my parents bump him all day everyday..as an adult I have a better appreciation for him and his music... this brother was in the struggle, he was in love, and wanted nothing but to be love and be loved. That's real music..Timeless
