My copy is VG at best, but still sounds lightyears better than what you might be able to grab at Target. Definitely worth the extra cash if you wanted a piece of history and a copy that sounds fantastic but aren't willing to pay a premium for the original master reissue. A VG original copy should be in the ballpark of 40 bucks if not less. Happy hunting!

"Those complaining about the transitions/segue's and/or having to flip the records over after 2 songs" are certainly NOT "missing the point!".
The point is that this album was designed to be listened to as one long piece - the fact that it had to be broken over 2 sides on the orignal vinyl was a shame, but to have to do it 4 times as on the MOFI, is something a lot of us can't take. The segues and pacing of the album all add up to the whole for this piece of art, that the artist was trying so hard to convey - now you've got a stop/start mess.

The SQ may be remarkable (and it is, I have a copy too), but broken over 4 vinyl sides is a disaster for the continuity of this master work.

Great reissue. It comes in a solid gatefold sleeve, the pressing quality is spot on throughout on my copy and the sonics are clear, with excellent definition.

Does anybody know if there's distortion on this release like there is on the CD version of the Detroit Mix?

I’m no expert, but I don’t think this is actually Dynaflex. The DF records I have from this period are thin, floppy slabs of near-garbage, and my copy of this pressing is fairly thick, stiff and sounds great. (The sound is actually pretty similar to the recent hi-res remasters, but a bit thicker and more forward.)

There are no markings on the cover or inner sleeve about it being dynaflex (which was a marketing term RCA came up with to justify using thinner vinyl, and RCA is the only label I’ve seen use the term). The dead wax markings also share nothing with my other DF pressings.

I am calling that a mistake in the listing, but have no way to prove it.

Somewhat conceptually, "What's Going On" arises from the perspective of a Vietnam veteran's alienation upon returning to so-called normal life in his hometown. Gaye is gifted with a jazz-inflected version of the Motown framework to anchor his narratives, which explore subjects including drug abuse, unemployment, inner city violence and civil unrest, all torridly representing the climate of 1971. Despite its laidback grooves and heavily produced, immaculate instrumentation, the album is reliant upon Gaye's smooth vocal performance to tell the stories within; his barely contained anger is as ardent and blistering as much as it is relaxing and plaintive. Intricate and introspective, "What's Going On" is also hopeful, looking to the future as well as the past for answers to societal issues. It is a highly uncommercial album, with its most accessible cut being the title track, the very song Berry Gordy considered unlikely to achieve public notice. Gaye refused to record the remainder of the album unless Gordy released it as a single, and it was a momentous decision that allowed him to gain modest control over the project.

A relentlessly expressive album that is decidedly poignant and passionate in equal measure, this is Marvin Gaye's most accomplished record, a reflective experience that addresses provocative subjects with a soulful sheen, and is surprisingly more magical than confrontational in its examination of societal ills. "What's Going On" is an album to be dived into, to lose yourself in rather than anatomize as if it were something to dissect and then dispose of; it is a political statement set to spellbinding sounds and Gaye's sole contribution to the cause that has served its purpose by inspiring outward-looking social awareness in many listeners.

My sealed copy arrived with a deep scratch on side one. The damage happened at the factory after being placed in the sleeve. I can tell because there is a nick in the sleeve on the same spot of the scratch. Completely frustrating. MFSL is refusing to do anything about it.
