Beam Me Up Scotty’s Series: Part 3/25 (CD)
I own an original of this on LP, but now I can have it on my iPod…
What can I say that you don’t already know about this concept album? Marvin Gaye was The Man, true story. Told from a returning Vietnam war veteran’s perspective, this album discusses everything wrong with America then (and now).
To say it’s essential listening is probably redundant. You know this. For sheer beauty, power, and hope amidst despair, you need this. Pure classic record.
