Released in 1965, Marvin Gaye's fifth studio album features a successful title track which was his best selling single at the time. The collection also includes hits "Try It Baby" which featured the Temptations, and "Baby Don't You Do It" with backing vocals by The Andantes.
Marvin Gaye was originally a member of The Marquees, later known as The New Moonglows under co-founder Harvey Fuquas direction. The group recorded several sides for Chess in 1959, including the song "Mama Loocie," which was Marvin's first lead vocal recording. The group found work as session singers for established acts such as Chuck Berry, singing on the hits "Back in the U.S.A." and "Almost Grown." In 1960 the group disbanded and Marvin relocated to Detroit with Fuqua where he signed with Tri-Phi Records as a session musician. Impressed by the singer, Motown president Berry Gordy fought Fuqua on his contract with Marvin and shortly afterwards, Marvin signed with Motown subsidiary Tamla.
Marvins next solo hit, "How Sweet It Is (To Be Loved By You)," written for him by Holland-Dozier-Holland, reached number 6 on the Hot 100 and reached the top 50 in the UK.
