|Marvin Gaye chronology|
Released during the middle of Gaye's coming-of-age as Motown's premier male solo star, the album showcases more of Gaye's personal desire to be a Nat King Cole/Frank Sinatra styled crooner rather than the R&B hitmaker Motown was grooming him into. Hello Broadway and Gaye's When I'm Alone I Cry albums were released at a time when Motown executives wanted Gaye to record for strictly the young R&B crowds rather than capture a more mature audience. It would take Gaye years to craft an album of standards that were more of his making, rather than the Cole-styled vocals he laid during this earlier period.
