Listening Post



I posted this clip once before, last year, but as far as I'm concerned you can never get enough Marvin. So with that in mind, and with today being an especially appropriate day for the enduring message behind these songs, here's a rare live performance of What's Going On and What's Happening Brother -- by the late, great Marvin Gaye.

Outstanding. Yes, you can never get enough Marvin, and those are my 2 favorite songs from What's Going On.

If you're really into Marvin you may dig the isolated vocal track from a live version of "I Heard It Through the Grapevine", which I posted last year (http://www.grayflannelsuit.net/2008/09/11/something-about-the-duality-of-man/).

What a shameful loss to us all. Would love to have heard what he'd have done with the current political climate, sure it would have been mind blowing.

Can never get enough of the man. Thnx
