The best just got bigger and better. The best-selling and acclaimed collection Every Great Motown Hit
Of Marvin Gaye, originally released in 1983, has been expanded, repackaged and remastered. Featuring his most popular hits from the ‘60s and ‘70s, the revised Every Great Motown Hit Of Marvin Gaye (Motown/UME), released May 23, 2000, now boasts 15 Top 10 pop sensations and qualifies as one of the genuinely great anthologies of modern soul. Highlighted by the addition of two tracks from the ‘60s, the Top 10 pop hits “Ain’t That Peculiar” and “I’ll Be Doggone,” Every Great Motown Hit Of Marvin Gaye is now a 17-selection masterwork. Along with each track being 24-bit digitally mastered, the package has also been upgraded with a new booklet with rare photographs, an essay and, for the first time, complete track credits. Spanning the years 1965 to 1977, from social consciousness to sexual politics, the album features such ‘60s hits as the #1 classic “I Heard It Through The Grapevine” and the Top 10s “How Sweet It Is (To Be Loved By You),” “Too Busy Thinking About My Baby” and “That’s The Way Love Is.” All of Gaye’s Top 10 pop hits of the ‘70s are also heard, from the #1 “Let’s Get It On” and “Got To Give It Up, Part 1” (his final chart-topper) to the anthem “What’s Going On,” the timeless “Mercy Mercy Me (The Ecology)” and “Inner City Blues (Make Me Wanna Holler),” and “Trouble Man,” from the film soundtrack of the same name. The original studio version of the Quiet Storm radio hit “Distant Lover” is also included.
