Marvin Gaye's What's Going On was a landmark recording and is considered one of the greatest albums ever made. Rolling Stone named it Album Of The Year when it came out and, in 2003, it was ranked No. 6, the highest for a non-rock album, in Rolling Stone's 500 Greatest Albums Of All Time. Originally, the title cut was recorded as a single, and Motown chief Berry Gordy refused to release it, citing that it was too personal and political. "What's Going On" became Motown's fastest-selling single at that point, going to the No. 1 spot on the R&B charts for five weeks and No. 2 for three weeks on the Pop listings, which led Gordy to request a full album's worth of material.

SHM-SACD (Super High Material SACD) is the ultimate Super Audio CD that utilizes the materials and technologies that were developed for the SHM-CD to further enhance the audio-resolution. These discs are made with polycarbonate developed for the screen of the liquid crystal display. As it has a higher transparency, players can read the signal more faithfully. Also, it excels in fluidity, which enables you to cast a more accurate pit. What works wonders for a low resolution format such as CD should offer even greater sonic improvements in a real high resolution format such as SACD.

Features:
•Two-channel SACD layer only, to secure enough reflectance and not to compress DSD file.
•Label of the disc is printed with a special green ink called 'Onsho Shiyou,' which minimizes diffuse reflection.
•Carefully selected master audio is used, from existing DSD files to newly converted from analog tapes.
