While I was never a big Motown fan -I only have one 2-CD best of the label in my collection- one of the first vinyl records I bought back in the mid-60's was a 6-track Marvin Gaye e.p. (that's extended play for anyone under forty) containing I can't remember what but I'm damn sure Can I Get A Witness was on it. Indeed it wouldn't surprise me if they were same as the first 6 cuts on this album. On second thoughts, no, I Heard It Through The Grapevine had to be on it and that's 16th here. Or am I getting mixed up with Smoky Robinson and the Miracles? Whatever, Marvin Gaye was one of the best voices on the Tamla Motown label and his early death at the hands of his father a genuine tragedy for music.
Hmm, I've just noticed that all three of them have the 60's in common. So you can take the boy out of the 60's but you can't take the 60's out of the boy.
