It is, on the surface, just a photo of a bloke staring into the rain. But what a story it tells. Marvin Gaye had to fight to get this record out, to break away from the commercial shackles of Motown and release a deeply personal, artistic statement unlike anything the label – or indeed any other label – had put out before. So it makes sense that all we see is Marvin: his head, his thoughts, his anguish. Yet James Hendin’s shot tells us about more than simply Gaye’s own artistic progression; it also manages to convey the album’s themes – as the 60s dream soured, Gaye felt compelled to sing about the environment, the Vietnam war and the racial tensions building in his country. The atmosphere in this shot mirrors the bleakness: it’s raining, and Gaye is outside, alone, the definition of troubled (the Tedesca typeface serves to add a gothic edge). Yet Gaye is also defiant, standing tall, here to deliver some truths with the confidence of a man who no doubt knows he’s made a masterpiece. This one sleeve tells you an awful lot about the state of America in 1971. It also tells you that, no matter what happens in the world, you will never, ever look this cool in a waterproof coat, so don’t even try.

Ο Maurice White, ψυχή και αρχηγός των πρωτοποριακών EWF, πέθανε πριν 2 ημέρες. Θυμάμαι μία live συναυλία του στο Λονδίνο (φυσικά, προ... αμνημονεύτων χρόνων!) που μου φαντάζει σαν χθες. Οι ήχοι των πνευστών ακόμα ηχούν στ' αυτιά μου...

Ah, isn't she lovely
Isn't she wonderful
Isn't she precious
Less than one minute old
I never thought through love we'd be
Making one as lovely as she
Now, isn't she lovely made from love

Isn't she pretty
Truly the angel's best
Boy, I'm so happy
We have been truly blessed
Now, I can't believe what God has done
Through us he has given life to one
Now, isn't she lovely made from love
