There's often esteemed admiration granted to those who expiate their inner pain into great art. Sparked, or rather embittered into action by his ex-wife Anna Gordy's successful alimony against him, this was Marvin Gaye's big pay-off to the madness in more ways than one and almost everyone derided it as a pretentious, meandering mess of dreary soap opera-scaled proportions. After flipping the course of black sexual politics with two landmarks of sensual bliss and salvation,—1973's Let's Get it On and 1976's I Want You—Gaye boldly crafted a highly confessional and idiosyncratic chronicle devoted to the dissolution of his first marriage and its emotional strain with Here, My Dear. Perhaps the directness of its tell-all exploits, or the improvised, raw nature of Gaye's expressive lyrics is what has drawn many to this album, along with its all-encompassing, subtly layered musical edge. But, the emotional range that is explored here is as staggering as its subject matter, which fuels the album's conceptual impetus. Vitriol melds with poignancy, self-pity and regret boil over into coldblooded narcissism and relief, and just when you think Gaye can't get anymore wickedly brilliant, he retreats off into an oddball, escapist moment of satirical humor and sci-fi fantasy to balance the brooding agony and realism exuded throughout this album. Indulgence and divorce never sounded as sweet as this and 40 years later, it's even sweeter. Soap operas and reality shows can kiss its royal ass, too.

Incredible mastering on this 1978 original pressing. Lush and full all the way through, with just the right amount of warm low-end. Marvin's indelible voice and unparalleled musicianship just blanket an entire room. No pressing flaws, either. I don't own any other vinyl reissue of this one, as I can imagine any of them surpassing or equaling the quality of this one. Since this album was a commercial flop, the many copies that Motown pressed ended up in many a cutout bins shortly after its release, so there must be plenty still floating at record meets and shops for dirt cheap. The 1994 Gavin Lurssen remaster is incredible, nearly comparable to the superb mastering of this pressing. Hip-O Select's 2008 expanded edition is a must-have as well, solely for the great alternate mixes, which were reconstructed and remixed by well-respected contemporary producers and musicians from the original tape reels of the Here, My Dear sessions.

This is the pressing to get!! It sonically sounds better than the original 1978 pressing. This 1980s reissue was pressed on quiet virgin vinyl.

Anyone knows if that great special edition (with all the alternative remixes) will be pressed on vinyl too? Would be so wonderful..

I hope the expanded edition (2cd versions form 2007-2010) will be released on vinyl, just like they did with the 4lp release of What's going on. Anyone who knows if this will be the case?

No need to add further remarks on the lore of this album; I will just add that nearly 40 years since its release time has vindicated HMD as a singular classic that gets better with each passing year. Musically complex and coherent as well as immaculately rendered. I love it more and more. Thank you Mr. Gaye for this great piece of art.

Here, My Dear is the fifteenth studio album by music artist Marvin Gaye, released December 15, 1978, on Motown-subsidiary label Tamla Records.[2] Recording sessions for the album took place between 1977 and 1978 at Gaye's personal studios, Marvin Gaye Studios in Los Angeles, California. The album was notable for its subject matter's being dedicated to the fallout of Gaye's marriage to his first wife, Anna Gordy Gaye.

Initially a commercial and critical failure upon its release, it was later hailed by music critics as one of Gaye's best produced albums in the years following Gaye's death.

One of my favorite albums ever, the production on it is incredible, especially on 'Is That Enough', which is one of the greatest songs I've ever heard.
