Music Legends: Marvin Gaye: Here, My Dear

Here, My Dear is a studio double album by soul musician Marvin Gaye, released December 15, 1978 on Tamla Records.[1] Recording sessions for the album took place at Marvin's Room in Hollywood, California from 1976 to 1977. A deeply personal and controversial album, Here, My Dear is notable for chronicling Gaye's ill-fated first marriage to Anna Gordy. Here, My Dear was initially a commercial failure, while receiving some critical favor from music writers. However, critical recognition of the album has improved significantly following further examinations by critics and compact disc-reissues. In 2003, the album was ranked number 462 on Rolling Stone magazine's list of the 500 greatest albums of all time.
