AllMusic Review by

Marvin Gaye is well-served by Gold: Greatest Hits, a compilation issued by the Canadian wing of Universal. Spanning his entire career, it brings listeners from his 1962 Motown breakthrough "Stubborn Kind of Fellow" to his final hit, 1982's "Sexual Healing." The disc misses few of his major recordings, gives equal weight to his '60s and '70s material, and includes a good share of his duets (with Tammi Terrell, Kim Weston, and even Diana Ross). The album title is a misnomer, since these weren't always his biggest hits, but the selection is much the better for not being chained to the charts; the Gaye-Ross duet, "Stop, Look, Listen (To Your Heart)," was picked over the three hits that appeared on 1973's Diana & Marvin LP, but it was the highlight of the record.
