What's Going On

Marvin Gaye

Soul - Publicado el 21 de mayo de 1971 | Motown

Hi-Res Premios Discoteca Ideal Qobuz
Destrozado por el dolor tras la muerte de su cómplice Tammi Terrell, que murió de cáncer en marzo de 1970, Marvin Gaye se retiró del negocio, sumiéndose en una intensa depresión e intentó iniciar una carrera en el fútbol llegando a formar parte de los Detroit Lions. En junio del mismo año, sin embargo, vuelve a la música impulsado por la situación social y política. Mientras Estados Unidos lucha contra sus propios demonios, tanto internos (segregación) como externos (Vietnam), publica una obra maestra del soul con conciencia. Con su prosa comprometida, What Going On, que aparece el 21 de mayo de 1971, saca a Motown del dulce sueño americano para confrontarlo con las realidades de su tiempo. Pero Marvin Gaye, artista y poeta por encima de todo, hace que su compromiso político y social se oiga como ningún otro. Una magistral sinfonía, hábilmente dosificada, donde las cuerdas, el ritmo y los coros llegan a hipnotizar. La piedra angular de la música negra norteamericana que, sin embargo, no era fácil de representar ya que Berry Gordy temía que este trabajo, altamente politizado, rompiera la imagen siempre muy (¿demasiado?) positiva de su sello y de su artista. Con What’s Going On, Marvin obliga a Gordy a dar la cara en el conflicto vietnamita, las tensiones interraciales y la degradación de las metrópolis estadounidenses. El éxito del álbum es inmediato, What’s Going On cosecha todos los premios. Por primera vez, y especialmente un álbum de Motown está diseñado de manera diferente, sin el control total de Gordy. Marvin Gaye firma entonces un nuevo contrato con su sello, esta vez de un millón de dólares, el más importante para un artista negro en ese momento. Y en cuanto a What's Going On, sigue siendo uno de los mejores álbumes del siglo XX. © Marc Zisman/Qobuz

Songs In The Key Of Life

Stevie Wonder

Soul - Publicado el 28 de septiembre de 1976 | Motown

Hi-Res Premios Discoteca Ideal Qobuz - Hi-Res Audio
El período clásico de Stevie Wonder alcanzó su apogeo con Songs in the Key of Life. No es ninguna casualidad que este trabajo fuera también el apogeo de su ambición y sus excesos, ya que son dos discos más un EP extra, con lo que Wonder tiene una gran cantidad de espacio para explorar. Este trabajo contiene algunos momentos de magnífica indulgencia, pero aun así es el tipo de disco doble en el que estos excesos contribuyen al efecto en conjunto, lo cual provoca que las canciones más inmediatas ("Sir Duke", "I Wish", "Isn't She Lovely") cobren un esplendor aún mayor, y que haya pequeños desvíos que explorar las siguientes veces que se escuche. Desde el punto de vista musical, en este trabajo hay más de consolidación que de progresión, ya que incorpora elementos del directo Talking Book hasta el pseudopsicodélico Fulfillingness' First Finale, con lo que este disco termina por ser una demostración de lo que es la música de Stevie Wonder en su punto más álgido. © Stephen Thomas Erlewine /TiVo

Talking Book

Stevie Wonder

Soul - Publicado el 1 de enero de 1972 | Motown

Hi-Res Premios Discoteca Ideal Qobuz - Hi-Res Audio
After releasing two "head" records during 1970 and 1971, Stevie Wonder expanded his compositional palette with 1972's Talking Book to include societal ills as well as tender love songs, and so recorded the first smash album of his career. What had been hinted at on the intriguing project Music of My Mind was here focused into a laser beam of tight songwriting, warm electronic arrangements, and ebullient performances -- altogether the most realistic vision of a musical personality ever put to wax, beginning with a disarmingly simple love song, "You Are the Sunshine of My Life" (but of course, it's only the composition that's simple). Wonder's not always singing a tender ballad here -- in fact, he flits from contentment to mistrust to promise to heartbreak within the course of the first four tracks -- but he never fails to render each song in the most vivid colors. In stark contrast to his early songs, which were clever but often relied on the Motown template of romantic metaphor, with Talking Book it became clear Wonder was beginning to speak his mind and use his personal history for material (just as Marvin Gaye had with the social protest of 1971's What's Going On). The lyrics became less convoluted, while the emotional power gained in intensity. "You and I" and the glorious closer "I Believe (When I Fall in Love It Will Be Forever)" subtly illustrate that the conception of love can be stronger than the reality, while "Tuesday Heartbreak" speaks simply but powerfully: "I wanna be with you when the nighttime comes/I wanna be with you till the daytime comes." Ironically, the biggest hit from Talking Book wasn't a love song at all; the funk landmark "Superstition" urges empowerment instead of hopelessness, set to a grooving beat that made it one of the biggest hits of his career. It's followed by "Big Brother," the first of his directly critical songs, excoriating politicians who posture to the underclass in order to gain the only thing they really need: votes. With Talking Book, Wonder also found a proper balance between making an album entirely by himself and benefiting from the talents of others. His wife Syreeta contributed two great lyrics, and Ray Parker, Jr. came by to record a guitar solo that brings together the lengthy jam "Maybe Your Baby." Two more guitar heroes, Jeff Beck and Buzzy Feton, appeared on "Lookin' for Another Pure Love," Beck's solo especially giving voice to the excruciating process of moving on from a broken relationship. Like no other Stevie Wonder LP before it, Talking Book is all of a piece, the first unified statement of his career. It's certainly an exercise in indulgence but, imitating life, it veers breathtakingly from love to heartbreak and back with barely a pause. © John Bush /TiVo

Can't Slow Down

Lionel Richie

Soul - Publicado el 1 de enero de 1983 | Motown

Hi-Res Premios Discoteca Ideal Qobuz
On Can't Slow Down, his second solo album, Lionel Richie ran with the sound and success of his eponymous debut, creating an album that was designed to be bigger and better. It's entirely possible that he took a cue from Michael Jackson's Thriller, which set out to win over listeners of every corner of the mainstream pop audience, because Richie does a similar thing with Can't Slow Down -- he plays to the MOR adult contemporary audience, to be sure, but he ups the ante on his dance numbers, creating grooves that are funkier, and he even adds a bit of rock with the sleek nocturnal menace of "Running With the Night," one of the best songs here. He doesn't swing for the fences like Michael did in 1982; he makes safe bets, which is more in his character. But safe bets do pay off, and with Can't Slow Down Richie reaped enormous dividends, earning not just his biggest hit, but his best album. He has less compunction about appearing as a pop singer this time around, which gives the preponderance of smooth ballads -- particularly "Penny Lover," "Hello," and the country-ish "Stuck on You" -- conviction, and the dance songs roll smooth and easy, never pushing the beats too hard and relying more on Richie's melodic hooks than the grooves, which is what helped make "All Night Long (All Night)" a massive hit. Indeed, five of these songs (all the aforementioned tunes) were huge hits, and since the record ran only eight songs, that's an astonishing ration. The short running time does suggest the record's main weakness, one that it shares with many early-'80s LPs -- the songs themselves run on a bit too long, padding out the running length of the entire album. This is only a problem on album tracks like "Love Will Find a Way," which are pleasant but a little tedious at their length, but since there are only three songs that aren't hits, it's a minor problem. All the hits showcase Lionel Richie at his best, as does Can't Slow Down as a whole. © Stephen Thomas Erlewine /TiVo

Let's Get It On

Marvin Gaye

Soul - Publicado el 1 de enero de 2014 | Motown

Hi-Res Premios Discoteca Ideal Qobuz - Hi-Res Audio
After brilliantly surveying the social, political, and spiritual landscape with What's Going On, Marvin Gaye turned to more intimate matters with Let's Get It On, a record unparalleled in its sheer sensuality and carnal energy. Always a sexually charged performer, Gaye's passions reach their boiling point on tracks like the magnificent title hit (a number one smash) and "You Sure Love to Ball"; silky and shimmering, the music is seductive in the most literal sense, its fluid grooves so perfectly designed for romance as to border on parody. With each performance laced with innuendo, each lyric a come-on, and each rhythm throbbing with lust, perhaps no other record has ever achieved the kind of sheer erotic force of Let's Get It On, and it remains the blueprint for all of the slow jams to follow decades later -- much copied, but never imitated. © Jason Ankeny /TiVo

Fulfillingness' First Finale

Stevie Wonder

Soul - Publicado el 1 de enero de 1972 | Motown

Hi-Res Premios Discoteca Ideal Qobuz - Hi-Res Audio
After the righteous anger and occasional despair of the socially motivated Innervisions, Stevie Wonder returned with a relationship record: Fulfillingness' First Finale. The cover pictures his life as an enormous wheel, part of which he's looking ahead to and part of which he's already completed (the latter with accompanying images of Little Stevie, JFK and MLK, the Motor Town Revue bus, a child with balloons, his familiar Taurus logo, and multiple Grammy awards). The songs and arrangements are the warmest since Talking Book, and Stevie positively caresses his vocals on this set, encompassing the vagaries of love, from dreaming of it ("Creepin'") to being bashful of it ("Too Shy to Say") to knowing when it's over ("It Ain't No Use"). The two big singles are "Boogie on Reggae Woman," with a deep electronic groove balancing organic congas and gospel piano, and "You Haven't Done Nothin'," an acidic dismissal of President Nixon and the Watergate controversy (he'd already written "He's Misstra Know-It-All" on the same topic). As before, Fulfillingness' First Finale is mostly the work of a single man; Stevie invited over just a bare few musicians, and most of those were background vocalists (though of the finest caliber: Minnie Riperton, Paul Anka, Deniece Williams, and the Jackson 5). Also as before, the appearances are perfectly chosen; "Too Shy to Say" can only benefit from the acoustic bass of Motown institution James Jamerson and the heavenly steel guitar of Sneaky Pete Kleinow, while the Jackson 5 provide some righteous amens to Stevie's preaching on "You Haven't Done Nothin'." It's also very refreshing to hear more songs devoted to the many and varied stages of romance, among them "It Ain't No Use," "Too Shy to Say," "Please Don't Go." The only element lacking here, in comparison to the rest of his string of brilliant early-'70s records, is a clear focus; Fulfillingness' First Finale is more a collection of excellent songs than an excellent album. © John Bush /TiVo
