In 1971 Marvin Gaye found himself in a time and place that he didn't recognize. Political unrest, social injustice, an unpopular war and his own personal hardships weighed heavily on him. But out of that came an album that would not only reflect the times in which he was living but one that holds stark similarities to the times we find ourselves in now. Call it rock, soul, R&B - it's extraordinary music with a timely & timeless message.
