Marvin Gaye “I’ll Take Care Of You” (Tamla 54153-B, 1967)

Even if you were A-list talent at Motown, the label did not know what to do with the continuous flow of material it generated in its golden years. Possible wonderful singles got passed up and left languishing on tape reels in vaults. The majority of these gems never saw the light of day.

But occasionally a song was dusted off and used as a single or album track long after the sonic sell by date had come and gone. The practice really got underway during the summer of ‘67 when Holland Dozier Holland started their work slowdown pending the lawsuit riddled exit from the label at the end of the year.

From the frosty winter of months of early 1965 comes a set of songs H-D-H gave to the Prince of Motown that for whatever reason didn’t find life on the airwaves that year. The A-side “Your Unchanging Love” was so obviously “How Sweet It Is” Part II. But this gothic, soaring pleader of a dirge, possibly too slow for Top 40 airplay, is a remarkably relatively unknown piece of perfection that too rarely gets heard today.
