Reviews

Yech. This artifact, which seems to be typical of Gaye's first few albums, contains soulless covers of whitebread showtune standards - "The Days of Wine and Roses", the title track, "Hello Dolly", "My Way", "Walk On the Wild Side", etc. (the last two aren't the Sinatra or Reed classics, which would've been a neat trick seeing as how they hadn't been written yet!).

Perhaps if you're a smarmy neo-swing revivalist fratboy, you might dig it, but for the rest of us, these are unlistenable showtunes. Odd for a legendary Soul man to start off as the black Lawrence Welk, isn't it?
