I had no idea

(5 out of 5 stars)

"The voice is amazing, but I had no idea about the man, that's why I purchased this DVD. The documentary started out cheesy and I thought to myself, 'oh, boy, a second-rate production by a friend of a friend of a friend...' But as the movie progressed, I realized that I was being invited into some very personal memories and visuals of this amazing, peace-loving fan by his very current surviving family. I learned things that have completely changed my opinion of this magnificent creature, and have dispelled the previous 'gossip' I had always believed to be true.

I rate it a 5 if you want to know about the man. The visuals, and entire production I would actually rate as a 3. So it depends on you of that you are looking for. The man, or the production. I think it's a keeper, regardless.

"Extremely good!!!!!!!!! Even showed Marvin during his time in Europe when his spirit was healing. Was very good to see him at that time. To enjoy viewing those frozen moments of him is a joy. What a gift."
I'm sticking with Amazon sellers from now on!

"Around Thanksgiving 2006, I ordered a Marvin Gaye T-shirt from another site as a Christmas gift for my nephew, who worships Marvin. I received an email saying the item wasn't in stock ... A WEEK BEFORE CHRISTMAS!!! This shoddy businessmanship (is that even a word?) has lost that seller what could have been a returning customer.

I was in a bind. I needed to find a gift that would arrive before Christmas, so I crossed my fingers and turned to I ordered two Marvin Gaye DVDs and was prepared for them to arrive after Christmas, what with the abundance of holiday mail and my tardiness in ordering. However, they arrived in two days, as promised, and my nephew was thrilled with the DVDs. From now on, I will remain faithful to Amazon sellers!"
