I Heard It Through the Grapevine! is the eighth studio album by soul musician Marvin Gaye, released on August 26, 1968 on the Motown-subsidiary label Tamla Records. Originally released as In the Groove, it was the first solo studio album Gaye released in two years, in which during that interim, the singer had emerged as a successful duet partner with female R&B singers such as Kim Weston and Tammi Terrell. The album and its title track are considered both as Gaye's commercial breakthrough.

In early 1972, Marvin Gaye should have been on top of the world. The previous year, he had wrested control of his career from Motown’s draconian hit-making system, winning a bitter battle to get What’s Going On released as a single: the song Motown boss Berry Gordy claimed was the worst piece of crap I ever heard spent five weeks at No 1 in the US R&B chart. At some sessions, Gaye forged ahead with the idea of another album in the socially conscious vein of What’s Going On. He reworked You’re the Man in the hazy, shimmering style of that album, and recorded Woman of the World – an ostensibly breezy ode to feminism that on closer inspection seems to be grousing that women’s lib is interfering with the more important business of Marvin Gaye getting his leg over.
Marvin Gaye was shot to death by his own father, while Otis Redding died in a plane crash and Sam Cooke was shot by a hotel manager. Only four people on our list are still alive, while many others have been dead for decades. Here are the results. Throughout the rest of the Sixties, Little Stevie Wonder was one of Motown's most reliable hit makers, scoring smashes with "Uptight (Everything's Alright)," "My Cherie Amour" and many others. When he turned 21 he gained creative control of his career, and began one landmark LP after the next. He slowed down by the mid-Eighties, but he has remained an incredibly popular live act and in 2005 he released Time To Love – his first LP of new material in a decade.

While you'd have to make an effort to pick 21 tracks from Gaye's catalog that don't make for a great listen, there are several compilations of his that fall somewhere between being good and bad introductions. This one falls somewhere between the two poles, as it contains half of What's Going On, in addition to significant chunks from other '70s albums like Trouble Man, Let's Get It On (no "Let's Get It On," however), I Want You, and Here, My Dear
