This installment in the 20th Century Masters: The Millennium Collection series is an excellent 11-track overview of Marvin Gaye
and Tammi Terrell
's legendary duet partnership, made all the more invaluable by Motown's inexplicable failure to keep any other Gaye
compilation in print. All the important items are here, from "Your Precious Love" and "Ain't No Mountain High Enough" to "Ain't Nothing Like the Real Thing" and "You're All I Need to Get By." While other volumes in this overall pretty decent budget-line series still have a definite feeling of incompleteness, this one plays like a detailed look at Gaye
's best material together; it differs from the early-'70s comp Marvin Gaye and Tammi Terrell: Greatest Hits by omitting "What You Gave" and "The Onion Song," and including "Two Can Have a Party."
