iTunes Review

Oftentimes outtakes are a fascinating companion to an artist’s official output, but Love Starved Heart is the rare collection of leftovers equal, if not superior, to the artist’s classic releases. When Berry Gordy was recording Marvin Gaye in the 1960s he was intently focused on crossover hits and passed over dozens of songs that were driven by groove or arrangement rather than melody, or songs that were perhaps drawn more to darkness than to light. Love Starved Heart collects such songs. Herein are driving, brawny rhythms (“I Found Something,” “When I Feel the Need,” “You’re a Son of a Gun”), sinewy funk grooves (“I Can’t Help It (I Love You),” “Get Away Heartbreak”) and caressing ballads (“Love’s More Precious Than Gold,” “For Both of Us I’ll Be Concerned”). The collection is so consistent it feels like a greatest hits album without any actual hits. “It’s a Lonely World Without Your Love” is so brilliantly catchy that it’s impossible to believe it was unheard until now. If you think that Gaye’s juices didn’t really start flowing until 1971, check out 1968’s “It’s A Desperate Situation,” a song as sexy and sinister as anything from I Want You.

A Treasure Trove

Any Motown fan knows there are countless unreleased songs in Motown's vault. It's hard to believe every song on this set was never released. There are bonified hits here, including the title track! For someone who was said to have hated the work he turned out during the time represented, there is no one (I mean that) who was a better interpreter of song. This is a Northern Soul nugget for sure. There are a few compilations of unreleased Motown material available these days (some already out of print), but none match this one! Get it.

lost and found: love starved heart

"...go ahead and feel gypped". Time for some sensitivity training. I am shocked and dismayed that a company of such international status would make such a reference to gypsies. Why not use the term "jew-ed"? I will assume that when I check back that this gross error will be changed, perhaps to... go ahead and feel ripped off... right now all I feel is outrage and dismay. And yes, this review is "inappropriate" and should NOT be posted to the iTunes Store

One of the most gifted, visionary, and enduring talents ever launched into orbit by the Motown hit machine, Marvin Gaye blazed the trail for the continued evolution of popular black music. Moving from lean, powerful R&B to stylish, sophisticated soul to finally arrive at an intensely political and personal form of artistic self-expression, his work not only redefined soul music as a creative force but also expanded its impact as an agent for social change.
