as the 1960's drew to a close revealing urban poverty, government corruption, war and social disparity, poets such as Curtis Mayfield, Bob Dylan, Sam Cooke, Bob Marley, Gil Scott Heron, Fela Kuti, Burning Spear and others were carrying on the tradition of using song to protest against injustice and the plight of the sufferer. Into the fray stepped Marvin Gaye to record one of the greatest LP's of the age. As early as 1965 Marvin had asked himself
"With the world exploding around me, how am I supposed to keep singing love songs?"
and 5 years later the seminal 'What's Going On' LP was recorded and released. Inner City Blues is STILL one of the most authentic critiques of the (increasing) problems faced by the sufferer in the urban jungle.
