AllMusic Review by

Marvin Gaye was a subtle, graceful singer with an innate and intimate sense of phrasing, and few singers in his era could handle a love song the way he could. This set mixes some well-known hits like "Let's Get It On," "How Sweet It Is (To Be Loved by You)," and "Too Busy Thinking About My Baby" with more incidental fare, and while it is both pleasant and solid as a sequence, most listeners will undoubtedly prefer a package with more of the big hits included.
