What's Going On is not only Marvin Gaye's masterpiece, it's the most important and passionate record to come out of soul music, delivered by one of its finest voices, a man finally free to speak his mind and so move from R&B sex symbol to true recording artist.
The opening track from Donny’s 1972 Live album, ‘What’s Going On’ was one of several cover versions that appeared on the record along with Carole King’s ‘You’ve Got a Friend’ and John Lennon’s ‘Jealous Guy’.

The album was a presentation of what’s going on in the world today. 9. The album ushered in a new look for Gaye. To separate himself from the finishing-school look of other Motown artists, Gaye changed his image while recording this album. What’s Going On was the first gatefold album to be produced by Motown, even though it was a single disc. This was due to the inclusion of a family-photo montage on the inner sleeve with a special emphasis on the children in the Gaye/Gordy family. Gaye insisted on having the photo collage as well as space for lyrics.
