What's Going On, Marvin ?

by Marc Zisman

In the beginning, there was "What's Going On", one of the greatest soul records ever, released 50 years ago. This is the story of how Marvin Gaye changed the history of the Motown label and of popular music in the 1970s.

Today, the album is considered the greatest record ever produced by Motown. When it was being made, total conflict broke out between the singer and the director of the label (who was also his brother in law). Gordy couldn’t understand the radical change of course that Marvin Gaye was embarking upon. Releasing a conscious album, a record that examined society's problems, looking at drugs, unemployment, the environment, war and misery: it was light years away from Gordy's artistic and commercial philosophy. In short, as far as he was concerned, What's Going On was not a Motown record! But nevertheless Marvin Gaye managed to persuade his employer/brother-in-law, and the magic finally happened on 21 May 1971...

Taking a closer look at the album itself, magic is surely the word. In just 35 minutes (a good time limit for truly great pop records, it seems), Marvin Gaye wraps canonical soul music up in a sublime halo of strings and reverb effects. Against a wild, dreamy backdrop, his velvet voice sings well-chosen words whose meanings cut through: his verses hold up a mirror to the world around him. His lyrics have class, refinement and sobriety: they fall neither into low-brow militancy, nor into the touchy-feely nonsense that this kind of concept album can easily veer off into... The title track, What's Going On, offers a subtle and trance-like rhythm, speckled with smooth percussion. On Inner City Blues, this same floating, hypnotic soul, built around layered echoes, increases the power of its subject matter tenfold. It is this dance of background barbarity and symphonic rhythms that makes this record from Marvin Gaye a real monument: one that has not aged a day.
