Unfortunately, I have a lot of surface noise on my brand new copy from Newbury. I have cleaned it thoroughly twice, once before playing and once again when I started listening and had a hard time enjoying it. Can deal with the crackling in the background, but I am running into some really loud pops all over the place.

I will say this release is packaged fantastically. Nice gatefold jacket, nice outer sleeve, and anti-static inner. Yellow/gold disc looks pretty great too. Had higher hopes for the sound quality!

Since the biggest and ever so loyal market for this album was in the UK

1. The label looks wrong Tamla looks vile and thoughtless as against the UK EMI 1965 created and Gordy approved Tamla-Motown hibred Looks supermarket tacky as does the IS Motown label a map! At least again the Team at UK EMI created and again Gordy approved M label.

2. Coloured vinyl looks ok in the right place and guess the yellow vinyl masks the custard yellow labels, I'd have prefered a Tamla-Motown label with a red or royal blue vinyl not custard yellow (where's the apple pie ?)

Horrible pressing quality by United here. You'll see this particular version in stores in a thick resealable outer sleeve. The LP sounds like someone dumped a bowl of Rice Krispies on it.

Before I go on with my review, I have to say that I stopped reviewing records for a while because at times I felt that I have been harsh in some of my reviews, but I had to get over myself and realize that I have very strong feelings when it comes to music. With getting that out of the way, I know that this album has been review millions of times, and even though Marvin Gaye had tons, and tons, and tons of great songs before "What's Going On", none, and I do mean none of his albums ever came close to this one! The fact that Marvin was so defiant of Berry Gordy, to go ahead with this bombshell of just great music, stuns the mind. We all know the story: Marvin was tired of being a pretty boy (just like Stevie Wonder was), and after talking with brother about Vietnam, and the tragic death of Ms. Tammi Terrell, Marvin could not take it anymore! He had to let it out, and what better way then through music! This is beyond an album, it's a documentary! The production of the record was also stunning, having it as a complete suite was priceless. I could go on and on, but why? You all know the deal, it worth you time, your attention.

Ground-breaking album,sliding away from commercial sound of motown,Telling stories of war,pollution,and struggles.From opening title track,whats goin on right through ,this is a classic in the true meaning, brilliant
