MARVIN GAYE - THE REAL THING IN PERFORMANCE 1964 - 1981

DVD FEATURING 25 VINTAGE PERFORMANCES FROM TV AND FILM SPANNING THREE DECADES

CLASSIC PERFORMANCES AVAILABLE FOR THE FIRST TIME ON DVD

LONDON, January 31st, 2006 - Reelin' In The Years Productions and Universal Music Group International are proud to announce the MOTOWN MONDAY, April 3, 2006 worldwide release of Marvin Gaye - The Real Thing In Performance 1964 - 1981 on DVD. Featured for the first time on DVD are 25 classic full-length performances from American and European television appearances, spanning three decades. The DVD includes more than two hours of performances by Marvin Gaye, one of Motown's most influential stars.

Issued with the full cooperation of the Marvin Gaye estate, this is the first official DVD anthology of classic archival television performances by a Motown artist. The DVD includes a wealth of classic performances with re-mastered sound and video plus a host of bonus features.

Marvin Gaye - The Real Thing In Performance 1964 - 1981 begins with Marvin singing one of his earliest hits, "Hitch Hike," on American Bandstand in 1964; the DVD progresses through the artist's entire Motown career, including vintage performances of "Pride & Joy," "Ain't That Peculiar," "Can I Get A Witness," "Let's Get It On" and a host of others. Further treasures include a beautiful 1967 duet performance of "Ain't No Mountain High Enough" with Tammi Terrell; a staggering live concert performance of "What's Going On" and "What's Happening Brother" from 1972; and an amazing live 1969 performance of "I Heard It Through The Grapevine" from the American TV show "Hollywood Palace" recorded while the song was still No. 1 on the U.S. charts. Interspersed between the songs, Marvin talks about his life and music in interview segments from various TV shows throughout his career.

For Marvin Gaye - The Real Thing In Performance 1964 - 1981, every effort has been made to locate the best possible sound and video; each of the performances, has been re-transferred and re-mastered from the best-quality, original masters (some resting in the television vaults for over 40 years). In the case of lip-sync performances, the original Motown stereo master recordings have been used, replacing the original mono broadcast sound and making for a much more enjoyable viewing and listening experience.

In addition to the television and film performances, the bonus section of the DVD includes a concert filmed in Belgium in 1981. This historic concert, unseen by the public at large and available for the first time on DVD, includes Marvin reaching back into his classic repertoire with great versions of "I Want You," "Inner City Blues (Make Me Want To Holler)," How Sweet It Is (To Be Loved By You)," "Got To Give It Up", plus six others.

Marvin Gaye - The Real Thing In Performance 1964 - 1981 also includes a host of unique bonus content, including an audio-only feature of 10 original a cappella (vocal only) performances of Marvin's classic hits discovered in the Motown vaults, and now available on this DVD for the first time anywhere. In addition, viewers have the option to watch these performances while listening to only Marvin Gaye's original studio vocal master track. Fans will feel as if they're in the original Motown recording booth with Marvin when they hear his solo vocal masters for "Hitch Hike," "What's Going On," "I Heard It Through The Grapevine," "Let's Get It On," and six more.

Marvin Gaye - The Real Thing In Performance 1964 - 1981 also includes a bonus CD featuring a 70 minute stereo concert recorded on Marvin's 1976 tour of Europe, unheard until now. The DVD/CD set further includes a 24-page booklet with an extensive essay by GRAMMY-award winning writer, Rob Bowman, including rare photographs and memorabilia.
