Marvin Gaye Plays it Cool

24 02 2008

An Acid Test classic, we both love this tune, and have both flogged it for a long time, not a regular play, but an every now and then to warm up the night.

Marvin moves to LA to do this sound track in 71-72, to satisy his itch to be in Hollywood. he turned down the part of Sam Cooke in a biopic.

Marvin plays drums, keyboards in additon to singing on this record. i first heard this on an ultimate breaks and beats, and had to have it. it has a timeless sound to it, sax makes it even sound like the mid eighties.

Marvin’s moog playing is so heavy on this. i also heard this was an early drum looping instance in a pop song, but that can neither be confirmed nor denied at this time.
