    This is a fantastic live album from Marvin Gaye recorded at the Montreux Casino on July 7 1980, as part of that year’s 14th Montreux Jazz Festival. Marvin Gaye is an American legend. He was signed to the fledgling Motown label in 1961 by label founder Berry Gordy and later that year he married Gordy’s sister. He scored a total of 39 US Top 40 singles for the label including such classics as “Let’s Get It On”, “Ain’t That Peculiar”, “Inner City Blues”, “Ain’t No Mountain High Enough”, “What’s Going On” and of course “I Heard It Through The Grapevine”, all of which are included on this album. Marvin Gaye died in 1984, shot by his father following an argument, and was inducted into the Rock ‘n’ Roll Hall Of Fame in 1987.With a running time of over 90 minutes, this album captures Marvin Gaye at the very height of his powers and combines outstanding music with a scintillating live performance.
