Marvin Gaye And Tammi Terrell Easy 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 Volume Two 1966-1970 box set which picked right up where the 1961-1965 box set left off, the albums - Moods of Marvin Gaye (1966), Take Two with Kim Weston (1966), United with Tammi Terrell, (1967) In The Groove aka I Heard It Through the Grapevine (1968), You're All I Need with Tammi Terrell (1968), M.P.G. (1969), Easy with Tammi Terrell (1969) and That's The Way Love Is (1970) - are all being offered individually on 180g vinyl.
Easy was the third and final duet album for Marvin Gaye and Tammi Terrell following United and You're All I Need. Its hits included the Top 10 R&B charters "Good Lovin' Ain't Easy To Come By" and "What You Gave Me," while "The Onion Song," only a mild U.S. hit, became a smash in the U.K. Its B-Side, a cover of "California Soul," was popular as well. When Tammi tragically passed away a few months after the album's release, Easy became a fitting testament to her artistry and the everlasting work she did with Marvin Gaye.
