Marvin Gaye Live In Concert.

The smoothest voice in Motown soul returns in a classic collection of sixteen full-length performances captured live on American and European television. Beginning with a 1964 performance of “Hitch Hike” on American Bandstand and spanning the course of three decades, Gaye takes the stage to perform such hits as “I Heard it Through the Grapevine,” “What’s Goin’ On,” and “Let’s Get it On” before winding to a close with a 1981 rendition of “Heavy Love Affair.” Various interview segments scattered throughout the release and filmed throughout Gaye’s career offer added insight into the mind of the Motown legend.

What we get is not just a collection of songs but a career trajectory, tracing Gaye’s evolution from a cog in the wheel that was Berry Gordy’s Motown into a mature artist with his own matchless vision.
