How Sweet It Is to Be Loved by You is the fifth studio album released by soul music artist Marvin Gaye, released in
1965. The album features a successful title track, which at the time was his best-selling single. Written for him by Holland-Dozier-Holland, the song reached No. 6 on the Hot 100 and reached the Top 50 in the U.K.

The collection also includes hits "Try It Baby" which featured the Temptations, and "Baby Don't You Do It" with backing vocals by The Andantes.

Marvin Gaye was originally a member of The Marquees, later known as The New Moonglows under co-founder Harvey Fuqua’s direction. The group recorded several sides for Chess in 1959, including the song "Mama Loocie," which was Marvin's first lead vocal recording. The group found work as session singers for established acts such as Chuck Berry, singing on the hits "Back in the U.S.A." and "Almost Grown." In 1960 the group disbanded and Marvin relocated to Detroit with Fuqua where he signed with Tri-Phi Records as a session musician. Impressed by the singer, Motown president Berry Gordy fought Fuqua on his contract with Marvin and shortly afterwards, Marvin signed with Motown subsidiary Tamla.
