The best songs from Marvin Gaye’s – Here, My Dear (Chart)
Rank the best tracks from this seminal album by Marvin Gaye. Here, My Dear could arguably be considered Gaye’s best album. Created to be the monetary settlement in his divorce. Gaye was ordered to give all the proceeds from the sales of this album to his ex-wife. One might think an artist would produce an album full of filler just to spite the judge and former love, however, this album is well-produced and the epitome of soul and groove. The delivery style and the deeply personal lyrics make me say this album could be the forerunner of the style now known as Neo-soul, emulated by artists such as D’angelo and Lauren Hill. If you can check out the deluxe edition of this album for alternative and extended play editions of album cuts. The tracks from this album are now in rotation on the station’s R&B/Soul playlist.
