No doubt, you can surely understand my surprise and shock to find out (while reading Marvin Gaye's bio) that he (at the age of 44) was, indeed, shot down dead (while living with his parents) by his own father (who, ironically, was a minister).... Yes. That was a real shockeroo!
Born (1939) in Washington, DC, Marvin Gaye's singing career really began to take shape in 1961.
Gaye, a very versatile vocalist (whose forte was singing Rhythm & Blues and Soul), had a vocal range of 3 octaves. He is often credited as being an artist who contributed greatly to the "Motown Sound" of the 1960's and 70's.
This "Best Of" CD contains 17 tracks in all (I don't know why they couldn't have rounded that number off to 20 tracks) which were recorded by Gaye in the years between 1965-1977. Three of my favourites in this compilation are - What's Going On? Mercy, Mercy Me (watch video) and Ain't Nothing Like The Real Thing (which is one of 4 duets with Tammi Terrell).
