Marvin Gaye - Budokan - 1979

Yet another little treasure. This is Marvin Gaye live at Budokan Hall, Tokyo, Japan, way back on November 13th 1979.

The man made great music throughout his career, and is synonymous with Tamla Motown.
As is widely known he also had something of a troubled life at times, and when this concert took place he was not far from rock bottom with both tax debt and drug problems.

However a true performer, he sounds great, and with a backing band that has real power & edge, this was a great show.

Set List:

Got to Give It Up
When I First Saw You
What's Going On
Who Is To Blame
Inner City Blues
Funky Space Reincarnation
How Sweet It Is
Band Intro/Trouble Man
Ain't That Peculiar
Yeah Yeah Yeah/Pride and Joy
Pride and Joy
Darlin' I Love You
Heard It Through the Grapevine
Going To Chicago
Need You Baby
Too Busy Thinking About My Baby
Distant Lover

He does say thank you & goodnight at the end of the show, however it is missing from this copy.

Sound Quality: Very Good stereo.
