What's Going On - 40th Anniversary [Super Deluxe] by Marvin Gaye

The original album What's Going on is a master pice best experienced on vinyl - partly because the album is produced a sound space divided in two. The 40th Anniversary addition contains the original trax as well as a load of rare songs that don't enhance the overall experience, but are a great mix of songs to put in different playlists. But before I dismiss the additional tracks as just extra, there are a few early versions from What's Going on included that are important as they highlight some of the places What's Going on could have stopped at, these versions are all delighful to listen to, but none are as lush and touching as the songs that made What's Going On a classic.
