Marvin Gaye And Mary Wells Together on 180g LP
One of the most iconic singers of his generation, Marvin Gaye aka The Prince of Motown, was cited for his "huge contribution to soul music in general and the Motown Sound in particular...[his] classic R&B voice was edged with grit yet tempered with sweetness...[projecting] an air of soulful authority driven by fervid conviction and heartbroken vulnerability."
In correlation with the Marvin Gaye: 1961-1965 box set which collected the music legend's first seven studio efforts, the albums - The Soulful Moods Of Marvin Gaye (1961), That Stubborn Kinda' Fellow (1963), When I'm Alone I Cry (1964), Together – Marvin Gaye and Mary Wells (1964), Hello Broadway (1964), How Sweet It Is to Be Loved by You (1965) and A Tribute to the Great Nat "King" Cole (1965) - are all being offered individually on 180g vinyl.
In 1964, Gaye's duet album with labelmate Mary Wells, Together, peaked at #42 on the Billboard pop album chart. A departure for both artists, the album's two-sided single, "Once Upon a Time" and "What's the Matter with You Baby," each reached the Top 20.
