Product details

INCLUDES 2 BONUS TRACKS

This collector's edition contains Gaye's second LP, That Stubborn Kinda Fellow, which was released in 1962 by Tamla Records (a subsidiary of Motown Records). Unlike his first album, The Soulful Moods of Marvin Gaye, which consisted largely of jazz and blues, Gaye's second effort was pure soul and R&B. It sold much better and received more critical acclaim than his first LP. The songs contained on That Stubborn Kinda Fellow constitute the first hits of Gaye's career and helped establish him as one of the most important artists of the legendary Detroit record label. Two further songs have been added as bonus tracks: "Hey Little Schoolgirl" (which was produced by and features the legendary Bo Diddley), and a rare song which was cut during Gaye's time as a member of the R&B group Harvey & The Moonglows (under the direction of Harvey Fuqua.
