Just got a copy of The Marvin Gaye Collection in the mail off of eBay. Great deal on it! 4 discs with David Ritz liner notes.
Ritz co-wrote "Sexual Healing" for Marvin Gaye, is currently co-authoring Aerosmith guitarist/songwriter Joe Perry's autobiography and did a bio on Marvin, Divided Soul
Here's what Ritz writes in the Marvin Gaye liner notes about
"Sunny" as recorded by Marvin Gaye
"Marvin is having a ball when in, in 1965, he tells the engineer, "Roll tape, I'm gonna KILL this one," before energizing Tom Jones' "It's Not Unusual." "Sunny," also salvaged from the vaults for the first time, is sung with the same happy-go-lucky spirit."
We're planning on Marvin Gaye's "Sunny" being track #18 on
Disc 1 of
Proud Soul Heritage: The Bobby Hebb / Sunny Anthology Vol 1
Native Syracusan Jennifer Lambert and husband Mickey Gentile release Marvin Gaye single on MotownMarch 31, 2009
This nugget comes in from proud daughter, Syracuse singer-songwriter Lisa Gentile.
The wife-and-husband team of Jennifer Lambert and Mickey Gentile have a single coming out today on Motown, exclusively on online.
The title is "Soulie," from the EP "Then and Now." It was written and performed by Lambert, Gentile and Gaye. Gentile also arranged and performed the song. They collaborated on the song in 1966, and it's never been released before this. It's coming out as part of Motown's 50th anniversary celebration and to mark what would have been Gaye's 70th birthday, on Wednesday. Sadly enough, Tuesday also marks the 25th anniversary of Gaye's death.
