This is an original domestic Tamla promo pressing of Marvin Gaye's classic "divorce" double album. If you like you're listening easy then this is not the album for you -- this one is serious business and full of raw emotion. Personally, I think it's brilliant. This copy does an incredible job of presenting the music; the sound is richer, warmer, and smoother than I've heard on many other copies. The surfaces are pretty typical of Tamla vinyl for the era, there is light to moderate surface noise behind the music at times but no marks, skips, or major issues.
4 1/2 stars Allmusic: "The album retains the high standards Gaye set in the early '70s... Here, My Dear is no less than brilliantly unsettling."
Vinyl: VG+ (very clean)
Cover: VG (significant wear around edges, gold promo stamp on front)
Play notes: Sounds wonderful, light to moderate surface noise in spots
