Sunday Energy Shot: #MarvinGaye 'Trouble Man' [audio]
Today we wish the ICON of a GENERATION a HAPPY BIRTHDAY..... Truly a legend who left this Earth way too soon.... Let's SLING IT BACK with Marvin Gaye's TROUBLE MAN....
Trouble Man is a soundtrack and twelfth studio album by American soul singer Marvin Gaye, released on December 8, 1972, on Motown-subsidiary label Tamla Records. As the soundtrack to the 1972 Blaxploitation film of the same name, the Trouble Man soundtrack was a more contemporary move for Gaye, following his landmark politically charged album What's Going On.
Bolstered by the hit success of the title track, which returned Gaye to a blues format, the album followed in December where it reached the top 20 of the Billboard 200, peaking at #12.
It would become Gaye's only soundtrack and film score.
