It’s been 30 years since the untimely death (April 1, 1984) of Marvin Gaye, one of music’s most prolific and influential singer/songwriter/musicians of the 60’s, 70’s and 80’s. Marvin Gaye’s contribution to soul music in general and Motown in particular went beyond just individual songs. By the 70’s his albums in their entirety were concept albums addressing social issues, sexual politics and personal relationship agony, that often times went against the Motown formula of carefully avoiding controversial issues. Marvin Gaye was a passionate visionary and an innovative singer/songwriter/musician. His albums went on to become landmark recordings that offer love, insight and reassurance to every generation past, present and future.
