If you’re soul-less and somehow remain unconvinced by Marvin Gaye’s soul-ful classic “I Heard It Through The Grapevine”, here’s something that should knock you off your proverbial rocker: Gaye’s isolated vocal track.

Here, the song’s true hero — Gaye’s glowing and raspy, warm-you-to-your-core voice — is singled out and let to shine.
