Funky Space Reincarnation

This song comes from Marvin Gaye’s neglected masterpiece, Here My Dear. The dated-looking video above is hardly representative of the moody genius of Gaye’s 1978 2 LP release, one of the finest examples of turning a personal crisis into art. Most of the tracks on the album deal with the painful breakup with his wife but on Funky Space Reincarnation he takes a break from the angst and gets his inner Sun Ra on.
