Marvin Gaye - What's Going On (Hybrid SACD)

Marvin Gaye was a controversial but hugely successful personality. In its early years the son of a priest tries to play a variety Chart Typical songs to match the tradition of the Motown label. But over time, he found himself increasingly in the triangle of tax investigation, demanding wives and music which meant nothing to him, rightly.

The self-produced album "What's Going On" from 1971, everything changed. With profound R & B sounds and a Soul sound he created according to Rolling Stone magazine the best album of 1971. The songs are profound, extremely open to the USA of the 70's, while even absolutely danceable. The title "What is happening here!" with the important exclamation point instead of the question mark shows the world the United States in the eyes of a returning Vietnam Veterans who wonders why he has been fighting for a world of police violence, drug abuse and increasing divorce rates. The label Motown at first refused to publish this album, because it would not commercial enough. It was used more hits like "Heard It Through the Grapevine" and did not want to disturb the customers.

The MFSL reissue as a hybrid SACD sounds open, concise and absolutely groovy. The MFSL issue: mini-LP with consecutive serial number.
