Throwback classic.Love this era of music.
This is for all lovers all over the world. Near or far. Do that Pandora!!!!!
M G at his best, u r missed, RIP :-(
Marvin was the first to record the many different layers of his voice on top of his vocales. So you got hear the many voices of Marvin all in one song which he learn from his teens performing do wop. THE MASTER , he surely his. After doing that with vocales, all artist followed. The followers always follow the leader.
Miss u "big daddy" xoxo

MARVIN WILL NEVER DIE...AS LONG AS HIS MUSIC PLAYS...EVER Y GENERATION WILL FALL IN LOVE WITH HIM.....
