Marvin Gaye Here, My Dear on 180g 2LP
Marvin Gaye's soul baring concept album about the pitfalls of love and divorce was originally released in 1976 on the Motown subsidiary Tamla Records. As a condition of his divorce from then-wife Anna Gordy, Gaye was ordered to forfeit a percentage of his album royalties. Accordingly, Gaye exorcised his frustrations with his next release, a sign of the times confessional in which he unabashedly wears his pain and suffering on his sleeve, right down to the album's cover art. Continuing with its vinyl reissue campaign, UMe will be reissuing this underrated classic back on 180 gram double vinyl.
