Celebrate the 50th Anniversary of What's Going On, the landmark 1971 album by Marvin Gaye with this expanded deluxe vinyl edition, which includes an entire album of rarities and unreleased mixes. What's Going On: 50th Anniversary Edition opens up the album's writing and production palette. Featured are four rare cuts making their vinyl debut, highlighted by a previously unreleased "stripped" version of the title song, plus all six original mono single mixes and their B-sides, with all of those 7" versions on vinyl for the first time since their original releases.

This premium heavyweight double vinyl release features direct-to-analog mastering from the original primary album tape reels by acclaimed audio engineer Kevin Gray, one of the first times this has been done since 1971, offering an undeniably authentic listening experience.

It is packaged in a tip-on heavy stock jacket gatefold sleeve with complete lyrics, and a brief essay honouring arranger David Van De Pitte. This formidable release also includes printed sleeves with track details and a rare image from the cover sessions. Produced by Motown Records in 2022.
