A Fitting Tribute to One of Music's GREATS! Feb. 18 2001
By Reginald D. Garrard - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Audio CD
Marvin Gaye was truly a unique artist, and this album of Gaye standards as interpreted by others adds to his legendary status. Beginning with daughter Nona's turn on the title cut, the CD triumphs on every single selection. The respective artists do not try to mimic Gaye; they simply do it their way without altering the passion of Gaye's lyrics.
Bono is superlative in his rendition of "Save the Children," BoyZ II Men blend their harmonies effectively on "Let's Get it On," while the very soulful Lisa Stansfield is just right on "Just to Keep You Satisfied." Madonna's "I Want You," slower than the original, retains Gaye's heartfelt plea to his intended paramour. "Stubborn Kind of Fellow" by Motown label mate Stevie Wonder is pure fun. Finally, Sounds of Blackness do justice to "God is Live/Mercy Mercy Me," making it perfect for the dancehall as well as the choir stand.

Nice mellow mix Aug. 23 1998
By A Customer - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Audio CD
If you like Marvin Gaye's songs - and almost everyone will have heard at least some of these songs at some point - then you will be interested in checking out these new takes/tributes by each of these independently sucessful artists.

Fantastic! Oct. 11 2001
By T. Tolksdorf - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Audio CD
I first heard this while deployed in Italy.
The music of Marvin Gaye is beautiful, and the artists on the album give stellar performances. Their renditions are soulful and delivered from the heart. Don't let the fact that the cover says 'Various Artists' throw you off! This is wonderful.
Great Interpretations of Classics Oct. 23 2002
By Omni - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Audio CD
I really do love the music of Marvin Gaye and his work. To have it reinterpreted by so many different people presents a real challenge. Yet it works. Not incredibly well. But good enough to buy and listen to the variety of interpretations. They do put melodic, rapping and lyrical spins onto the work which in some ways does succeed in making it more their own stand alone interpretations rather than simply reduxes.
A great buy......perhaps go for the used price. There are some products that are materially/work product overpriced but are still worth a hearty, avid listening.
SOUNDS OF BLACKNESS' "MERCY.."MAKES THIS BUY MOST WORTHY! March 1 2003
By J. EVIDENTE - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Audio CD
I first heard "God is Love/Mercy Mercy Me" on radio and got hooked on the song. When I found out it was by Sounds of Blackness, I searched every music store for their CD, and even on the web but couldn't find the song. Then I chanced upon it on this used CD. Man, the transition from the first part (GOD IS LOVE) a funky dance-beat Gospel inspired tune to the second part (Mercy Me) is a work of a genius. You should hear this one. The rest is so-so but this one cut makes the whole CD worthwhile to buy! Thanks, Sounds of Blackness and to seller tomhiatt2002!
