You're The Man is the first-ever planned "lost" Tamla/Motown album from Marvin Gaye. Fifteen of the album's seventeen tracks are on vinyl for the first time and three tracks are newly mixed by SaLaAM ReMi. The album also includes the rare long LP version of Gaye's cancelled Christmas single from '72, as well as an unreleased vault mix of its instrumental B-side, and a new essay by Marvin's biographer, David Ritz. While the tracks have been issued on various collections and deluxe editions, this is the first time they have been placed in their proper context. You're The Man was the album that was proposed to follow-up the monumental What's Going On, and it contains all of Marvin's solo and non-soundtrack recordings from 1972 (his next two albums in quick succession: Trouble Man and Let's Get It On). The release of You're The Man will coincide with the 60th anniversary of Motown and Marvin Gaye's 80th Birthday (April 2).
