Limited edition translucent turquoise colored 2LP
The only live performance of Marvin Gaye's groundbreaking album!
It's "Marvin Gaye Day" in Washington, D.C., and history is made at the recently-opened Kennedy Center when Marvin performs for the first time in years. Experience the once-in-a-lifetime thrill of his 1972 performance of the groundbreaking album, What's Going On. This limited edition reissue comes in a stunning translucent turquoise vinyl double LP.
Gaye's biographer, David Ritz, describes the album as "an invaluable and vibrant historical document marking a milestone in the artist's career."
The album includes the only known live recordings of Gaye performing four songs: "That's The Way Love Is" and "You" (which opened the Washington concert as part of a meditative 13-minute medley), "Right On" and "Wholy Holy." A delay in switching reel-to-reel tapes during the concert meant that his performance of the What's Going On hit "Mercy Mercy Me (The Ecology)" was not successfully recorded.
