Motown repackaged and re-released five Marvin Gaye LPs -- Live!, I Want You, Millennium Collection-20th Century Masters, Vol 2. ('70s), Millennium Collection-20th Century Masters, Vol. 1 ('60s), and What's Going On -- as a slipcase box set. It's not a bad way to acquire the albums if you don't already own them, but isn't recommended for the casual fan. ~ Al Campbell
