1 - JOHNSON, MARV - I BELIEVE - (CD) 
HALLMARK


By 1962, Marv Johnsons role in the foundation of Motown was but a distant memory. Whilst his former mentorBerry Gordy was turning the Detroit label into a musical powerhouse, Marv found himself seeing out his UnitedArtists contract without access to the talent pool at Hitsville, finding it somewhat barren up in New York.Handed over to producer and arranger George Fowler for his third album, the pair opted to return somewhat toMarvs gospel roots, coming up with the religiously slanted I Believe. As far away from his two earlier UA albumsas it is possible to be, there is still much to admire on I Believe, not least the chance for Marv to allow his voice toshine.

2 - JOHNSON, MARV - MARVELOUS - (CD) 
HALLMARK


Tucked away as track six on this album is a historic recording; Come To Me was the first single issued by Berry Gordys Tamla label.Lacking national distribution, Berry accepted an invitation from United Artists to handle the distribution, also agreeing to United Artists taking over Marv Johnsons contract.Berry is still involved in this album, writing many of the songs and handling production with Don Costa.The end result is an R&B album with a hint of MOR, since to pad the album out to 12 tracks, a decision was taken to cover some of popular musics standards!

TRACKLISTING: 01. September In The Rain 02. You Got What It Takes 03. Summertime 04. Swonderful 05. I Cant Get Started 06. Come To Me 07. Let Me Love You 08. Almost Like Being In Love 09. Love Is Here To Stay 10. Im Coming Home 11. When I Fall In Love 12. Dont Leave Me

3 - JOHNSON, MARV - MARVELOUS MARV JOHNSON - (LP) 
RUMBLE


Detroit gifted singer, songwriter and pianist Marv Johnson was a seminal figure in the early history of Motown Records. Responsible for more than a handful of hits between 1959 and 1960, he enjoyed no less than nine records in the top 100 as well as two songs on the top ten chart, after being chosen by the record producer Berry Gordy as the first artist to be released on his fledging record label TAMLA, in which Marv kept recording and working on sales and promotion until the late 70s. Often overlooked compared to the other great R&B stars of those years, Johnsons rich legacy includes dozens of brilliant soulful songs, like the immortal chart-smasher "You Got What It Takes" and the classic "Come To Me".

TRACKLISTING: 01. September In The Rain 02. You Got What It Takes 03. Summertime 04. Swonderful 05. I Cant Get Started 06. Come To Me 07. Let Me Love You 08. Almost Like Being In Love 09. Love Is Here To Stay 10. Im Coming Home 11. When I Fall In Love 12. Dont Leave Me
