The Heart of Rock and Soul # 715 Marvin Gaye

'Motown expert Don Waller says Marvin Tauplin's guitar line(it couldn't be by anyone else) makes I'll Be Doggone Byrds-like folk rock, and I suppose he's right, but if the Byrds or any folk-rock act had ever been supported by a groove this deep, or topped by singing this gritty, they'd have to invent a new name for the genre. Folk-soul? Not with those strings I guess, but it's a helluva thought, huh? Maybe the very reason that Dylan called Smokey Robinson America's greatest living poet.'
