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.

Still one of my favorite album ever….

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.

Divorce! Wow, nobody likes it, but at that time it was Marvin's reality. And just like all his other albums in the 70's, Marvin said everything that was going on in his life. "Here My Dear" blew my mind when I finally heard it in '95, and to me, if I was old enough, I would have bought it so Marvin could pay Ana what he owned her in alimony and child support. People slept on this on, and they should have been ashamed! Marvin told it like it was, but because it wasn't a "Let Get It On" record, people ignored it. Over 30 years later, I think it finally made enough money, but it was way too late. This also started troubles for him and Janis as well. But now that you know that it's thight, take a chance on this one.

It's funny but I can remember walking into a local record store (yes, I'm old enough to remember record stores) and literally seeing piles of this album sitting in the clearance section. Stores literally could not give this double album set away ... Here we are a couple of decades later and suddenly "Here My Dear" has attained a sheen of respectability with publications like Mojo and Rolling Stone singing it's praises. The album's background is well known, so I'll limit the biographical comments to a brief executive summary.

By the mid-1970s Gaye and first wide Anna were engaged in open warfare. The fact Gaye was living with a much younger woman (Janice Hunter) and had already fathered a child with her certainly didn't help to mend fences. Fed up with the situation, Anna filed for divorce. Unfortunately for Gaye, the trappings of a rock star existence (multiple homes, lots of cars, expensive tastes in wine, women, and drugs left him almost bankrupt. Unable to cover Anna's demands for alimony and child support for their son Marvin III (the child was reportedly actually a result of an affair Gaye had with one of Anna's nieces), Gaye's lawyer suggested a settlement that would give her a $307,000 down payment based on guaranteed royalties and another $293,000 from sales of his next record. (Gaye died before paying Anne the balance.) Popular legend has it that Gaye's original plan was to release a lame album that would tank, leaving Anna with little in the way of royalties. That plan quickly fell apart when Gaye went into the studio. Exemplified by material like the in-your-face title track, 'I Met a Little Girl', 'When Did You Stop Loving Me, When Did I Stop Loving You' and 'You Can Leave, But It's Going to Cost You' Gaye ended up recording an almost painful collection of autobiographical songs that reflected back on the marriage with Anna with plenty of finger pointing (the inner sleeve reflected a Monopoly-styled board game entitled 'Judgment' that included a man's hand giving a record album to an outstretched female hand) . Gaye rounded the collection out with a host of other personal demons that had plagued him through the years ('Anger' and 'Is That Enough'). Recorded over a two year timeframe, Gaye was initially reluctant to release the album, but Motown's insistence on releasing a new album and the need for cash ultimately saw him agree to release it. The results were far from commercial and critics drubbed the album which did little to generate sales (it proved Gaye's poorest selling release for Motown). For her part furious at the results which she saw as a slap at her privacy Anna threatened a lawsuit. Upset with the critical drubbing Gaye basically walked away from the album. He ended up splitting with his second wife and basically went into self-imposed exile.  

Hoping to recoup some of its investment Tamla tapped the album for a single in the form of :

'A Funky Space Reincarnation, Pt. 1' b/w 'A Funky Space Reincarnation, Pt. 2' (Tamla catalog number T 54298F)

Tamla also financed Gaye's first music video which you can see courtesy of the attached YouTube link:

The funny thing is I remember being distinctly disappointed when I originally heard the album. Of course at the time I was single, had never been in a really deep relationship and was more interested in melodies and grooves than insight. I recalling thinking that album was tuneless and a complete downer and I didn't listen to it for years afterwards. I don't know where my head was all those years ago, because it's a killer album. Part of the change probably has to do with the fact I've been married and divorced and experienced many of the same feelings. Yeah, Gaye's self loathing and mean spirited rants aren't something to be proud of, but the album is simply packed with classic, if overlooked tracks and the grooves were there, though occasionally submerged in a jazzy atmosphere. I was just to dumb to notice them the first time around. Besides, how can you not laugh at a track with a title like 'A Funky Space Reincarnation', or smile at the funky workout 'Anger'. Best description for this wonderful LP - the ultimate breakup album !

I'm a maintenance man and I had to do a trash out and I found a Marvin Gaye CD (here my dear) but it said master legend and I realize that this is the original studio CD with Marvin's signature and a whole bunch of studio stuff on the inside of the case and the CD doesn't have the names of the songs on them can anyone tell me if its worth anything
