1961 Debut Album Reissued On 180g Vinyl Mono LP!

Debut album features "Funny Valentine" and "Witchcraft" as well as the Berry Gordy penned "Let Your Conscience Be Your Guide".

Marvin Gaye was originally a member of The Marquees, later known as The New Moonglows under co-founder Harvey Fuqua’s 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.

Marvin Gaye and the Tamla label clashed over musical direction. The label pushing for R&B music for the teen market while Marvin would prefer a more adult sound like that of Nat King Cole and Ray Charles.
