ALSO Marvin Gaye fans will soon be able to listen to one of his classic concerts. “What’s Goin’ On Live,” recorded in 1972 at the Kennedy Center in Washington, DC, is getting its first standalone release on 2LP black vinyl, 2LP color vinyl, CD, and digital formats on October 18th.
The concert, Gaye’s first live performance in four years, was his only live performance of his iconic 1971 “What’s Going On” album in full. It features the only known live recordings of four Gaye tunes, “That’s The Way Love Is,” “You,” “Right On” and “Wholy Holy.” It doesn’t, however, contain his performance of “Mercy Mercy Me,” because of a delay switching a reel-to-reel tape during the recording. This is the first time it’s being released on its own, with the vinyl and CD packages featuring rare photos from the concert. Fans can pre-order the album here.
