AllMusic Review by

As it boldly declares on its cover, Collected is a 54-track anthology of Marvin Gaye's output. It covers the singer's earliest material from the '60s and extends all the way to the posthumous 1985 single "Sanctified Lady," so it contains material originally released on Tamla/Motown and CBS. It's not definitive -- it's a bit too thrown together and cheaply packaged to qualify -- but it does include a lot of Gaye's essential material. "Pride and Joy," "Can I Get a Witness," "Ain't That Peculiar," "What's Going On," "Let's Get It On," "Got to Give It Up," "I Want You," and "Sexual Healing" are among the hit selections.
