Singles from Marvin Gaye and Tammi Terrell, Aretha Franklin, Lee Dorsey and Stevie Wonder

Norman Jopling, Record Mirror, 21 October 1967

MARVIN GAYE AND TAMMI TERRELL: 'Your Precious Love'; 'Hold Me Oh My Darling' (Tamla Motown TMG 625). What a beautiful record this is. A medium-pace, soulfully emotional ballad, with a message of joy and happiness. Their vocals are warm and inviting — this should be the biggest duo disc to date. Flip is a bubbly beater with usual Tamla backing sounds — beautifully recorded and very interesting.
