Marvin Gaye's most-wanted Northern Soul offering in sublime condition..

Just click the sound-file and Marvin's voice will convey more in one line than I could with barrow full of superlatives..

It is after all one of the greatest Motown Northern Soul offering ever committed to vinyl.

A project by Dana Smart to aid the promotion of Marvin's 1995 4xCD compilation which included a CD dedicated to 16 tracks of Marvin's rare and unreleased.

This 45 was never intended for commercial sale and was seen as a promotional tool only, consequently the value of this limited promo has swelled year on year for over 23

Hardly surprising as it has been an explosive dancefloor detonator for two decades with no sign of it ever losing it's magical inspiring qualities.

This copy is a beautiful example complete with picture cover. Ownership is essential..
