Reseña de álbum

This Deluxe Edition is a two-disc celebration of the hedonistic R&B masterpiece Let's Get It On. The album is Marvin Gaye's follow-up to the groundbreaking social statement he made on What's Going On, which can also be thoroughly examined on the likewise expanded What's Going On [Deluxe Edition]. The two-and-a-half-hour package is divided into four sections, beginning with a complete sonic resurrection of the original eight-song album, which now boasts a 24-bit digital transfer exclusive to this collection. A nine-track sessions segment follows consisting of entirely unissued materials. These exist in the form of instrumentals and undubbed and alternate versions of previously issued songs. This is continued throughout the third section, which contains demos, alternate mixes, and more, ending with a further ten alternate mixes and unissued pieces in various states of completion. These are in effect the recordings that connect such diametric and otherwise polar opposite musical sentiments as What's Going On with Let's Get It On. The sound is uniformly breathtaking. The often-jarring and always harsh and brittle sonics that previously plagued the high frequencies throughout the original disc — most specifically the tambourine and other percussion during "Distant Lover," for instance — is now organic and unprocessed. The copious bonus material sounds opulent considering it spans over five years. Any slight audio anomaly should be regarded as proof of authenticity. The laid-back strings on "Cakes," "Symphony," and "Song #3" observe a new side of Gaye's talents that rivals the likes of Barry White in terms of swinging soul arrangements. The inclusion of various works-in-progress and other related productions — such as the Miracles' ("I Love You Secretly") as well as the Originals (1968) and the Monitors' (1970) respective renditions of "Just to Keep You Satisfied" — examine the close-knit influence that Motown had among its own ranks. Accompanying the two discs — which are housed in a cardboard digipack — is a 24-page booklet replete with previously unpublished photos as well as essays from Gaye biographers David Ritz, Ben Edmunds, and Harry Weinger, producer and annotator of Let's Get It On [Deluxe Edition].

Simply Amazing

The original Let's Get It On was absolutely brilliant, but the Deluxe Edition has a bounty of beautiful and thought-provoking tracks that are an absolute necessity. Symphony, The World Is Rated X, Try It You'll Like It, We Can Make It Baby, and You Are That Special One are some of the funkiest, most beautiful songs you will ever hear. Not to mention all the original songs as well. Anyone who has seen any movie in the past 20 years is likely to have heard the first 15 seconds of Let's Get It On, but those who haven't heard the entire track are really missing out. Marvin's voice has a passion to it that proves in itself that the song is about more than just physical love. It is a tribute to a love so deep, that it would be wrong to deny the desire to express it physically. And that kind of powerful love is really what the entire album is about, not just sex, as some might think.

Gone too soon...

The song that gets to me is "If I Should Die Tonight" It's a very chilling song in that if you loved Marvin's music, now knowing that he truly wanted to die, brings tears to your eyes. So for me it's a sad song, but Marvin always did wear his feelings on his sleeve. I miss you Marvin.


What can anyone say... It's Marvin at his best. If you like Marvin Gaye? You have to have this in your library. A CLASSIC !!!!

Uno de los talentos mejor dotados, visionarios y duraderos que puso en órbita Motown, la máquina de hacer hits, fue Marvin Gaye quien brilló en el camino de la continua evolución de la música popular afroamericana. Partiendo desde un R&B sobrio y poderoso hacia un soul estilizado y sofisticado, para llegar finalmente a una forma de expresión artística intensamente política y personal, como lo demuestra su clásico de 1971 What's Going On, su trabajo no sólo redefinió la música soul como fuerza creativa...
