Album Review

Ain't No Mountain High Enough: The Collection offers a non-definitive overview of Marvin Gaye's output from the early '60s through the early '80s. It stops short of his switch to CBS for the Midnight Love album and therefore lacks "Sexual Healing," as well as the posthumous hit "Sanctified Lady," but it does provide an adequate sampling of the years it covers, including essential singles like "I Heard It Through the Grapevine," "Ain't No Mountain High Enough," "Inner City Blues (Make Me Wanna Holler)," "Got to Give It Up," and "Heavy Love Affair." Its presentation is lacking, though it's more generous than a typical budget-priced disc, consisting of 20 cuts. This is a legitimate, Universal-distributed release.
