Stats for this track
Marvin Gaye’s album, What’s Going On, has been called one of the great soul music records of all time. It was a concept album, written from the perspective of a Vietnam Vet returning home to a different America: one where urban poverty, the hippie movement, and raised fists boiled together with the anti-war movement.
The album was showcased at a 1972 concert at the Kennedy Center in Gaye's hometown of Washington DC. The Kennedy Center is commemorating the 40th anniversary of that live performance, and gave musician 1-O.A.K exclusive access to the original recording session of “What’s Going On.” With young musicians at Youth Radio, he produced this remix.
