Marvin Gaye – I Want You

Marvin Gaye
I Want You
Style: Soul
Label: Motown
Catalog Number: 5292ML
Released: 1976, 70's
Stream:

One of the most sensual records of all time. Janis Gaye, whom the album is dedicated to, recalls “I’m pretty sure if you took a poll of how many babies were born in 1976, 1977 and 1978 most of them listened to this album at one point or another.” With track titles like “Feel All My Love Inside” and “Come Live With Me Angel” it’s not hard to see why… Much of the magic of this record comes from Leon Ware, the genius Motown producer/arranger/songwriter, who co-wrote the entire album with Gaye and was just as much an inspiration for Gaye as his muse Janis. If you’re into this record, be sure to also check out Ware’s solo album Musical Massage which was recorded during those same sessions and features much of that same sensual magic.
