Marvin and Kim: Swingin' Twosome!

Alan Smith, New Musical Express, 11 February 1967

SIX FEET high, aged 27, songwriter, athlete, ballad singer and rock 'n' roller — this is Marvin Gaye. Attractive, intelligent, married to a producer and arranger at Tamla-Motown — that's Kim Weston! Together they've given us one of the label's brightest records for some time, 'It Takes Two', and ardent Tamla fans may like to know that the song is only a foretaste of an album by the duo in the near future.
