"This disk is in a word "terrible". I couldn't finsh it. The sound quality is awful. The video is worst. I think that who ever publish this work has done a grave disservice to a legend."

"I love Marvin Gaye. He was a great performer and there is no other like him. However, the sound quality (mono) on this DVID is terrible."
Can You Say Medley?

"I just watched a PBS version of this concert. Marvin sounded great though I agree the technical quality was poor. I realize this was almost thirty years ago but; I wouldn't pay for this. The main reason: It's one giant medley. Marvin mailed this one in IMHO. I heard three actual complete songs. Stick to the original Tamala and Motown recordings if you need a dose of Marvin. RIP Marvin Gaye."
Great Performance, but Mono Recording

"A wonderful concert film capturing the troubled genius of soul in a memorable, intimate, honest, and musically rich performance featuring a full and capable band. Marvin Gaye was an absolutely superb singer with an astounding vocal and emotional range who also happened to be a gifted writer and stylistic innovator. From early Motown hits like "Hitch Hike" and "Ain't that Peculiar" to "Heard it Through the Grapevine," his legendary duets, soul concept discs like "What's Going On," Soundtracks like "Trouble Man," and musical expressions of sexuality like "Let's Get it On," nobody but nobody covers a greater range of Soul and R&B than Marvin Gaye. The show is a nice anthology of most of Marvin's work and actually lives up to the suspect title, "Greatest Hits." And good lord, the man can sing!"
