Another release surprised me these days. What's Going On Live features one of the rare performances when Marvin Gaye played his immortal album live on stage. It was after he struggled after his friend and long time duet partner Tammi Terell passed away and his slipped into a depression. This album was a landmark in modern soul and played often at my place. Listening to the songs he played live is another evidence of what he and his voice are able to do. Perfect songs in a perfect arrangement and with the time to fathom what his voice was able to. An album I will play often the next times.
