Stevie Wonder had a record-breaking year in 1984 thanks to the song I Just Called To Say I Love You from this soundtrack. The song won an Academy Award, went to number one on charts around the world, and became Motown’s all time biggest-selling single internationally. The soundtrack album, containing other songs from Wonder and featuring Dionne Warwick, sold a million copies in the US and was certified gold or platinum in several other countries. This wasn’t Wonder’s first foray into movie music: he had previously recorded the soundtrack to the documentary The Secret Life Of Plants in 1979. Years later, he enjoyed considerable success in the early 1990s with his soundtrack to director Spike Lee’s film Jungle Fever.

Paul Butterfield was the first white harmonica player to develop a style original and powerful enough to place him in the pantheon of true blues greats. It’s impossible to overestimate the importance of the doors Butterfield opened: before he came to prominence, white American musicians treated the blues with cautious respect, afraid of coming off as inauthentic. This collection includes the studio tracks recorded between 1965 and 1971.

Recorded: 1972, Hitsville West, Los Angeles, California

In 1972, things were rapidly shifting in Marvin Gaye’s world. He was coming off of one of his most wide-reaching hit albums with 1971’s instant classic What’s Going On, and his recording contract with Motown subsidiary Tamla was renewed for a cool million dollars and total creative control, making him one of the most successful R&B artists of his day. With Motown’s offices migrating west from Detroit to Los Angeles, Gaye followed suit, beginning work on Trouble Man, both the score to a blaxploitation film of the same name and the soundtrack that would be his next album. With minimal singing (Gaye sings through only the title track, adding fragmentary vocalizations minimally throughout the rest of the album), Gaye wrote, arranged, and conducted the entire soundtrack, working with both Motown players and a full orchestra over the course of its recording. It’s been speculated by some that Trouble Man was a concerted effort to move away from the expectations of a carbon-copy follow-up to the almost immeasurably high standards of What’s Going On, but it’s best to look at the record as an entity unto itself rather than the next Marvin Gaye album in the chain. Though largely absent of his one-of-a-kind vocal presence, the arrangements are richer and more sophisticated than the majority of early blaxploitation fare, with some of the same theatricality and filmic urgency of the best Morricone or David Axelrod soundtracks. With instrumentation more ambitious than even the enormity of What’s Going On, Trouble Man never stays in one place for long. “‘T’ Plays It Cool” paints a hustling cityscape with its solid beat and nervous synthesizer bubbles. Plaintive sax trades verses with rudimentary keyboards and Marvin’s soulful wails on “Life Is a Gamble,” and mournful passages of chamber strings give way to bounding funk grooves. Isaac Hayes’ Shaft soundtrack would become debatably more widely remembered than the movie it scored, and Curtis Mayfield’s Superfly soundtrack had a similar reception. Likewise, Trouble Man the soundtrack album outperformed Trouble Man the movie by leaps and bounds, enjoying Top 20 chart success in its day while the movie sank rapidly into obscurity. Looking at the album outside the trends of its era and inward to the art that Gaye was sculpting shows Trouble Man as a mostly wordless statement on the rapidly changing times for both young black America and Marvin’s personal life. The compositions well over with equal parts tension and detached cool, moving through modes of heartbreaking struggle, searching wonder, and playful street scenes. While it’s been relegated to the lesser status of Gaye’s one-off blaxploitation soundtrack, it rises far above the wandering wah-wah guitars and dated bongos of its peers. Trouble Man might not be as immediate or universally relatable as Gaye’s soul-searching on What’s Going On or his later sensual fixations, but a deep listen will show it’s very much part of the same overarching genius that touched all of his work. ~~ AllMusic Review by Fred Thomas

The cliché “meteoric rise” could have been invented for Mariah Carey. This self-titled debut sold over eight million copies, produced four number one singles, and earned her a Grammy Award for Best New Artist. Not bad for an unknown 19-year-old. It also set her on her way to becoming the best-selling female artist of the 1990s — a particularly impressive feat considering the caliber of the competition during that decade — largely on the strength of her truly remarkable voice. She swoops across an unbelievable five octaves on these smooth ballads and bouncy R&B tunes, and her vocal control is simply stunning — witness her spine-tingling upper register notes on “Someday” and “Prisoner” to choose just two of many examples. But she’s more than a pretty voice; Carey also co-wrote each of the 11 songs on this album, and though her songwriting chops would improve over the years, the sheer excitement of hearing this talent for the first time makes this a memorable debut.
