The Marvelous Marvin Gaye

I've been listening to a bunch of Marvin Gaye lately and I was struck by how many duet albums he did and by how many duet partners he had - Mary Wells, Kim Weston, Tammi Terrell, Diana Ross. I mean, is there any other major (or even minor artist) that's done so many duet albums? So while we're pondering that question, here's two Marvin mixtapes - one a collection of duets and the second a collection of (mostly) rarities and album tracks.

Stubborn Kind Of Fellow
Baby I'm Glad That Things Worked Out so Well
Hope I Don't Get My Heart Broke
One More Heartache
Baby Don't You Do It
When I Had Your Love
Since I Had You
Let Your Conscience Be Your Guide
It's Not Unusual
This Love Starved Heart Of Mine
Soldier's Plea
Wherever I Lay My Hat
Good Lovin' Ain't Easy To Come By
This Will Make You Laugh
Everybody Needs Love
