When it comes to soul music, no one sings quite like Marvin Gaye. There’s a reason that just about anyone in the R&B cites him as an influence, as his soulful vocals are instantly recognizable to fans and casual listeners alike.

That’s why we jumped for joy upon hearing the news that Gaye’s works are being compiled for a eight-disc vinyl box set, to be released on May 27th via Universal Records. Titled Marvin Gaye 1971 – 1981, the collection spans the majority of Gaye’s career, with the exception of his 1982 album Midnight Love (which featured the popular single, “Sexual Healing.”)

To have a majority of Gaye’s music in one box set is a must for any fan, pressed on fresh 180-gram vinyl for the reissue edition. Pre-orders are underway via Amazon.
