AllMusic Review by

A "collectors' only" form of live album from Marvin Gaye, released by the regularly unreliable Direct Source label in 2006, 18 Greatest: Marvin Gaye Live is a poor live album that seems to vary in its sources, containing performances of hits from across the singer's career: "Got to Give It Up," "Ain't Nothing Like the Real Thing," "Sexual Healing," "After the Dance," "Inner City Blues," and the like. Most of the tracks sound no better than a poor bootleg. Direct Source pumps out discs like this by the dozens, and there's really no reason to pay attention to any of them.
