When "Sexual Healing" came out, it busted through the gates and put Marvin back on the map. The problem is that it was a short -lived triump. He was back in the peoples eyes, but he just couldn't run away from his troubles. The one trouble that caught up with him, is what did him in. I will spare the details, but it lead to his tragic death! Can you imagine if Marvin got himself together? He probably still would be making music. With that said, this is an ok set, but it was nothing like his stuff from Motown. Well, at least he was able to crank out one more hit before he died. To this day, he is constantly missed!!!!!!
