Marvin Gaye's classic Motown soundtrack album to the 1972 Blaxploitation film of the same name, features the legendary title track, which became one of Marvin's signature songs, along with 'T' Plays It Cool, Don't Mess with Mister 'T' and many more. The album reached the top 20 of the Billboard 200, peaking at #12. This LP is now remastered on 180 gram vinyl.

3 Cheers, a toast of Dom and a 15 minute standing ovation as the final entry into the expanded editions of Marvin's golden era is finally here in time for Thanksgiving 2012. Like millions of others, "What's Goin' On" felt like the soundtrack of my formative years. Coming right during the spring I graduated from high school, okay yes I'm near ancient, I declared it as my "Best Album of All Time"!!!! It wasn't necessary for Marvin to follow it up right away because I listened on a daily basis, never tiring of it.

But then, after dropping the single "You're the Man", Marvin made a complete left turn and expressed his musicality and jazz instrumentation with the soundtrack to a 70s movie that I never had any intention to of seeing, "Trouble Man". What I liked about the album immediately was the challenge it brought to my musicality. It was another opportunity to expand my musical knowledge. I had followed Santana's transformation into jazz at around the same time with "Caravanserai" and "Love, Devotion and Surrender" with John McLaughlin. ("You're the Man" may have proven that it was impossible to top "What's Goin' On". It is not like there wasn't more to say about any of the number of topics that album presented. I anxiously wanted a follow- up or so I thought. But it was clear that he had made such a definitive statement that, for the time, all that could be said, Marvin had said).

Diana Ross had offered the Great American Songbook via Billie Holiday's vast repertoire. And that was jazz and blues with vocals. Marvin was stepping into a jazz soundtrack possibly closer to Quincy Jones' early A&M releases. It was different from the transcendental jazz that Santana was venturing into.

Marvin long considered his score to the forgotten film TROUBLE MAN to be his best work. While I would not call it his best (could anything really top WHAT'S GOING ON, LET'S GET IT ON, or HERE, MY DEAR?), it is a fantastic album in it's own right. Textured and atmospheric, this lovely, complex score deserved to be featured in a much better movie. It's often compared with the ground-breaking soundtracks SHAFT and SUPERFLY, however TROUBLE MAN is much more poised and intricate than those funk classics. It sounds more like a bittersweet separation, rather than a head-on collision. Though largely instrumental, TROUBLE MAN does contain the hit title song (#7 Pop, #2 R&B), which is justifiably considered one of Gaye's classic singles.

Marvin Gaye's body of work never ceases to amaze me. While it is true that "Trouble Man", the soundtrack, has been actually produced by the 5 or 6 arrangers listed in the jacket credits, Marvin lent his name to the final product, and if you listen to his output from the "What's Going On"- "Let's Get It On"-"I Want You"-"Here My Dear" era there are some awe inspiring, but lesser commercial ventures. "Marvin and Diana" and this are prime examples of what I'm saying. Listen to the butterscotch and blues multi-vocal tracking on "Cleo's Apartment" and listen to how it segues into the "Trouble Man" single--sublime! The bluesy Marvin Gaye vocals and the Trevor Lawrence (he sounds as if he were playing on a late night street corner, doesn't he?) saxophone work makes this an excellent CD. It was remastered using 20-bit technology in 1998 and it will hold it's own against any pure jazz album. Get it from Amazon.com, now.

As I sit here listening to Marvin instructing Trevor Lawrence the Saxophone player on the Alternate Version of "T" Stands For Trouble on Disc 1 (dialogue above) – I’m properly drooling. This is just stunning stuff - and as a veteran of nearly 1400 reviews (hundreds for Soul) – I can safely say that this gorgeous 2CD set may just well be the coolest reissue ever put out in digital history.

While 1971’s "What's Going On" and 1973's "Let's Get It On" are regularly acknowledged as Soul masterpieces and name-checked by everyone who is everyone in love with music that genuinely touches you – real fans have always had a rush to the head at the mere sight of 1972’s "Trouble Man" on vinyl. Gaye himself seemed to rate it as his best work and on the evidence presented to us on this fabulous 2013 overhaul – hot like an oven – doesn’t even come close to how good Marvin was at the time. So let’s get to the Blax facts right away…

Released November 2012 in the USA (January 2013 in the UK) – Hip-O Select B0017676-02 breaks downs as follows:

Disc 1 (73:41 minutes):
Tracks 1 to 13 are the album "Trouble Man" – originally released December 1972 in the USA on Tamla T322L and February 1973 in the UK on Tamla Motown STML 11225. The American issue famously came in a die-cut sleeve with a flap that had him seated beneath the flap – the UK version came in a single laminated cover with no flap and only the seated photo.
Tracks 14 to 22 are all PREVIOUSLY UNRELEASED BONUS TRACKS called The “T” Sessions

Disc 2 (47:37 minutes):
Tracks 1 to 19 are "Trouble Man Original Film Score" (in MONO) which features the movie score chronologically reconstructed for the first time since release over 40 years ago.
