Marvin Gaye's 1971 album Whats Going On is as relevant today as when it was released 50 years ago. Addressing injustice, ecology and global conflict, Gaye was ahead of his time and right on time. You'll hear the entirety of this important concept album front to back as it was intended.
50 yrs ago • May 21, 1971 • Marvin Gaye released What’s Going On. Exploring injustice, poverty, ecology and global conflict, it’s still exceptionally relevant today. A 35 min concept album, it flows beautifully when played in full.
