Sound Opinions: Marvin Gaye's What's Going On

Dec 1, 2017

In 1971, Marvin Gaye made a career left turn with the  album What's Going On, adopting a socially conscious sound that addressed war, racism, and drugs. 45 years later, What's Going On remains as relevant as ever. Hosts Jim DeRogatis and Greg Kot present a Classic Album Dissection of the iconic record. Then, they review a contemporary protest album from Common.
