Последний "студийный" альбом дуэта, который, кажется, никогда не собирался в студии. Марвин, правда, заявлял, что на этой пластинке Тамми почти не пела, а заменяла ее Валери Симпсон, последняя, естественно, все отрицает. В некоторых песнях, действительно, голос немного другой, не Тамми.
Easy is an album recorded by Marvin Gaye and Tammi Terrell, and released by Motown Records on September 16, 1969 under the Tamla Records label. One song on the album, "Good Lovin' Ain't Easy To Come By", was a hit single and remains popular to this day. Terrell had been ill, suffering from complications caused by a brain tumor, since the fall of 1967. Marvin Gaye later claimed that as a result, most of the female vocals on this album were performed by Valerie Simpson, who served as co-songwriter and co-producer for the LP with her boyfriend and future husband Nickolas Ashford. Simpson is quoted in Ludie Montgomery's biography of Terrell, My Sister Tommie, as not having subbed Terrell for vocals. Simpson again explicitly denied having done so in the liner notes to The Complete Motown Singles series. The album was released on compact disc in 1992, and again in 2001 as part of The Complete Duets.
