Marvin Gaye had to fight the Motown machine to get this album made. Inflation, war, environmental degradation, overpopulation, protests and social upheaval are the themes of this seminal album. ‘What’s Going On’ is still regarded as one of the best albums of all time. The music itself has stood the test of time and has remained Marvin Gaye’s and arguably Motown’s most important musical and social statement.
Join us for Sunday lunch, order a pizza, and listen to music that either inspired or was relevant to this classic LP, then the lights go down, the volume goes up and we play the album from beginning to end on vinyl over a world-class sound system. You won’t believe what you can hear!
