Release Info: MARVIN GAYE - RECORDED LIVE ON STAGE (TAMLA 1963) Jap mastering cardboard sleeve
Marvin Gaye's "Recorded Live on Stage" was the first glimpse of a live Marvin Gaye show. Released as an album on September 9, 1963, it firmly stamped Gaye's place as Motown's leading male hitmaker with only Mary Wells outselling him. And though he would often complain of stage fright, when Gaye sang, it seemed like all the fear went away as he took control of the audience especially during the hit numbers. Gaye wouldn't record another live album until 1974 when he was making his comeback on stage after nearly a three-year exile following the death of his beloved duet partner, Tammi Terrell. This album was released in 2009 only in japan... ........................ While the selections and overall production are spotty, there's nothing erratic or uneven about Gaye's vocals. This was his third Motown album and first live date, and he sounded refreshed, energetic, and triumphant. This came close to equaling his late '70s live set done in London and is among the best '60s live albums that Motown released.[allmusic]Here
