Romantically Yours, much like When I'm Alone I Cry, compiles the quieter moments of Marvin Gaye's earlier works. Much to the chagrin of Motown executives, Gaye always wanted to release an album of vocal standards in the stylings of one of his musical heroes, the swarthy Nat King Cole. The results are a bit uneven, and those wishing to hear Gaye at his finest when performing in this vein should check out the recently issued Vulnerable for a better survey of his work from this time.
