Marvin Gaye That Stubborn Kinda' Fellow 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.
The singer/songwriter's first solo hit, "Stubborn Kind of Fellow," was released in September '62, reaching #8 on the Billboard R&B chart and #46 on the Hot 100, appearing on his second studio album of a similar name which came out the following year. Gaye also had a hit with the dance song, "Hitch Hike," from the same album, peaking at #30 on the Billboard Hot 100, as well as his first Top 10 single with "Pride and Joy."
