Marvin Gaye wanted to be a crooner?
Sheila | Independence, MO | 10/16/2006
(5 out of 5 stars)

"Yep, he did. He wanted to be Nat King Cole and his first 2 albums for Motown were of standards, one being a tribute to Nat King Cole and the other being this one, a collection of Broadway songs from the early 1960s. He does "People" from "Funny Girl" and "Hello Dolly", stuff you would never expect the R&B soul pioneer that sang "Sexual Healing" to ever tackle. He also does "What Kind of Fool am I", "The Party's Over", "Days of Wine and Roses", "My Way", "On The Street Where You Live", "Hello Broadway", "My Kind of Town", "This is the Life", and my favorite on this CD, "Walk on the Wild Side". This fascinating set is hard to find in any format, even its original vinyl, and you won't get a chance to hear it anywhere unless you own it! Hardly anybody has it and that is exactly why nobody has reviewed it before me!"

"I've waited a long time to hear this album. Who knew bonus points on your credit card could get you gift certificates to! I think it was well worth the $45 it's going for on here. I'm without a doubt one of Marvin's biggest fans and I'm a ballad-lover. I have to feel the music, it has to touch me emotionally. He was able to do that very well, better than any other artist actually. I wish he would've continued with the jazz crooner, but he's so versatile and has made so much great music for so many different kinds of people.

To me, this album as a whole is great. Right off the bat with the title track, Marvin's swinging all over the song. The production is good and Marvin is heartfelt. He would've been great on Broadway. The only two songs I didn't really like were 'People' and 'Walk on the Wild Side', but maybe they'll grow on me. This album has a happier-type feel to it, yet Marvin still adds his pain and emotion into it in songs like 'What Kind Of Fool Am I' and 'The Party's Over'... Mark my words, when he softly sings "all dreams must end" 2:12 into the latter song, you're going to melt. It would be tough to pick a favorite song, but if you forced me to give you an answer and only one song I guess I'd say... 'The Days Of Wine and Roses'.

It's very well put together, but I feel that 'When I'm Alone I Cry' is a better album. I think for Marvin and well, myself too, will relate more to saddness and heartache. So his voice naturally gravitated more towards that. But for what it's worth, Marvin shows he knows how enjoy happiness as well and shines on this album. I think it's underrated, but only you can judge for yourself... I think it's worth it. So Hello Broadway, this is me."
The Days of Wine and Roses and you!

"It's a shame that this cd is out of print. I dreamed off of this cd many times. I have an original cd that I bout back in 1994 from Hastings records store. I really didn't get into unil 1996 when I was in college and lonely. But when I did I fell in love with love. This is my favorite standard album marvin made. This music takes me to another place in my mind. I feel clean and fresh and it's crisp sound makes me feel like falling in love. Of course my favorite song on the album is "the day of wine and roses". I even went and purchased the 1962 film on dvd 3 years ago. That movie don't go represent the song that marvin sings at all. So if you can get your hands on this cd, do it as soon as possible."
