With the Motown catalogue in disarray for many years, it was only through budget compilations such as the Early Classics series that many underrated gems were in catalogue. The purpose of the series was to present B-sides and early album tracks in the context of the more familiar singles. With most of Marvin Gaye's early albums back in catalogue, this now serves as a useful low-priced sampler, with five single A-sides including Can I Get A Witness? from 1963, which wasn't on an album, with the Supremes clearly audible in the background. The oddity is the fabulous Lucky Lucky Me, recorded in January 1965 but unreleased in his lifetime. Instead, a fine instrumental version using the same backing track was released featuring Earl Van Dyke on Hammond organ, with the new title All For You. Marvin's original version was first released in 1994, along with new remixes and an alternative version recorded in 1966, and has since appeared on other CD collections, notably Lost And Found - Love Starved Heart. Lost And Found is recommended as it consists entirely of good quality material, only released posthumously and not duplicated on his re-issued albums.
