Review

Considered not only one of his finest albums but also one of pop music's landmark recordings, Marvin Gaye's 1971 LP What's Goin' On received a reissue in a Deluxe Edition (half speed remastered) in 2011 with 28 additional tracks. It of course contains the well known title track, the follow-up single, "Mercy Mercy Me (The Ecology)" plus the third and final single "Inner City Blues (Make Me Wanna Holler)". In its entirety, it is an incredibly touching album, telling the story of a war veteran (inspired by his own brother Frankie) returning home to the country he fought for and sadly having to bare witness to a world of prejudice, poverty, drug abuse and police brutality. Songs were co-written by legends Al Cleveland and Obie Benson and recorded in Detroit at Motown's Hitsville, Golden World and United Sound Studios.
