Pre-dating the voyeuristic tendencies of reality television by 20 years, Here, My Dear is the sound of divorce on record — exposed in all of its tender-nerve glory for the world to consume. During the amazing success of I Want You and his stellar Live at the London Palladium album, Marvin Gaye was served with divorce papers from his then-wife Anna Gordy Gaye (sister of Motown Records founder Berry Gordy).

    The album is definitely overlooked. For me this is the sincerest Marvin Gaye recording ever released and logical development from the previous two records.

    Emotional is how I would describe this record in one word. A tour de force of emotion. Simply one of the most heartbreaking and sad records I have ever heard.

    After a man has gone through some things in life, this album becomes hard to listen to.. sad feelings dressed up in the finest threads.

    Marvin is my top musician of all times (got all his albs and more, read "Divided Soul" of David Ritz, got several DVDs...) I tend to consider "Here My Dear" as my favourite album. I have the deluxe version, so there are some other takes of the songs too (especially the funky "time to get it together"). It is so rich and took me some time to get all the nuances but with time I learned to love every single song of this album. Further I have the impression to hear Marvin's development in his music. With this album he took one more step to more funky and groovy arrangements. Fav. tracks: Here My Dear Is That Enough? A Funky Space Reincarnation Time To Get It Together (alt. ext. mix) And the lyrics...."if you ever loved me with all of your heart, you'd never take a million dollars to part", (When Did You Stop Loving Me,...) "When it's flaming HOT" 'from Anger', "...if you trying to break a man, I don't understand...why do I have to pay attorney fees"from "is that enough" and others.
