It'll be 45 years since the release of Marvin Gaye's 1971 album, Whats Going On and to celebrate, Universal Music Enterprises is preparing a series of special vinyl releases, including a 7-LP box-set, Volume 3: 1971-1981. The albums included are: What's Going On (1971), Trouble Man (1972), Let's Get It On (1973), Diana & Marvin (1973), I Want You (1976), the double-LP Here, My Dear (1978) and In Our Lifetime (1981).
If that isn't enough, there's also a special What's Going On 10-inch vinyl EP thats coming out on June 24. It'll have the original tracks of the 7-inch mono single versions of the title-track as well as "God is Love" on one side. The other side will feature two "Motown: Re-Imagined" versions of the title track using the original instrumentation. Motown newbie, BJ the Chicago Kid will make an appearance and the second version will be an unplugged "Coffeehouse Mix."
Dont have anything to play vinyls? Well, luckily this Motown magic will be released electronically as well.
