Normally, covering Marvin Gaye would be a way to show that you are…well, not Marvin Gaye.
Covering two of Marvin’s songs in this way should just be a way of showing you are….stupid.
But this is Robert Palmer. And while Palmer is always good, here he just digs into these classics and makes them his own. I like his cover of “Mercy Mercy Me”. But as he moves into “I Want You”, he soars.
