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.
