Classic Albums – What’s Going On Marvin Gaye by Mick O’Dowd


Mick O’Dowd… My all-time favourite album. A real classic!

Redstar Richter… an absolutely stunning album – we are not worthy! mother – too many crying – brother – too many dying (we need to think about this shit and move forward)

Alan Esdaile… Some albums are good, some are classics but this is in a different league. Excellent.

Redstar Richter… too true – if someone in the pub asked me I`d say “London calling” (lol) – but yeah – marvin was the man!

John Wilde… A pivotal album for Marvin which became an absolute classic. Amazing record.

Alan Pepper… Totally agree ! I never tire of listening to this great album . Followed closely by Stevie Wonders’ Innervisions. And side 2 of Abbey Road !!

John Storer… A great album but, when I’m in a Marvin kind of mood, I’ll tend to go for the follow-up to this album … the “Trouble Man” soundtrack. If I want things a little more upbeat, then it has to be 1983′s “Midnight Love” … also the NME’s “Album of the Year” back then. Taking nothing away from Mick’s choice, though.
