Release Info: MARVIN GAYE - HOW SWEET IT IS TO BE LOVED BY YOU (TAMLA 1964) Jap mastering cardboard sleeve + 3 bonus
Another great album; Gaye was at this time Motown's finest solo vocalist (Smokey Robinson, Eddie Kendricks, David Ruffin, and Levi Stubbs were all heading groups). His vocal on the title track was both smooth and churning, celebratory and introspective. He could do no wrong during this period, regardless of content, tempo, or arrangement. ~ Ron Wynn, All Music Guide
The title track,was his best-selling single at the time. Other hits include "Try It Baby" (which features David Ruffin of The Temptations) and "Baby Don't You Do It" (with backing vocals provided by The Andantes).
Also the song "How Sweet It Is (To Be Loved by You)" is featured in the first American Pie movie, and has been covered by many notable musicians, including James Taylor, Joan Osborne, Michael McDonald and Michael Buble.
