    The album ..."is an indictment on the widening gulf of inequality, racial instability and social hardship endured throughout America’s urban spaces"..and is still as potent and relevant now asit was then. --- Back in ’71, the track’s immediate catalyst was Motown co-writer James Nyx Jr.’s scathing analysis of misspent tax dollars – how could the US government be spending billions on sending astronauts to the moon, while life in the ghettos of Detroit remained so tough?: https://thevinylfactory.com/features/marvin-gaye-inner-city-blues-versions/

    Back in ’71, this track’s immediate catalyst was Motown co-writer James Nyx Jr.’s scathing analysis of misspent tax dollars – how could the US government be spending billions on sending astronauts to the moon, while life in the ghettos of Detroit remained so tough? The entire track was produced at Motown's headquarters, and was later covered by Placebo, The Impressions, Sarah Vaughan, Reuben Wilson and Gil Scott-Heron, and sampled by A Tribe Called Quest and Theo Parrish. https://tinyurl.com/4bsez4hm KEXP celebrated What's Going On Day on May 21st 2021, with amazing sets all day from our DJs.
