Week 95: Marvin Gaye
And after quite a hectic summer, I have returned to finish what I started. I've decided to go with Marvin Gaye's "Here, My Dear," because I've actually never listened to this record fully. Got the recommendation from a good friend of mine, Louis Cato (incredible drummer/multi-instrumentalist that everyone should check out), and since my last few reviews have all been newer albums, I figured it was time to take it back a couple decades. This record was made by Marvin as payment for his ex-wife during their divorce, hence the title (oooo, scandalous). Marvin is still one of the greatest vocalists of all time, and with all these bullshit singers running shit at the moment, I think he deserves a good listen.
