Marvin Gaye And Tammi Terrell You're All I Need 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.
1968's You're All I Need is the second of three albums Marvin Gaye and Tammi Terrell released as a duo following their beloved first outing United (1967) and prior to third effort Easy (1969). It features the sublime hits "Ain't Nothing Like The Real Thing" and "You're All I Need To Get By," both No. 1 R&B and Top 10 Pop hits, plus duet performances of several songs previously included on Tammi's solo releases. Gaye withdrew from music for two years following Tammi's tragically premature death at the age of 24, to emerge in 1971 with the groundbreaking What's Goin On.
