The followup to Marvin Gaye's 1971 landmark album, What's Going On, came out of left field for most of his fans. The jazz-soul soundtrack to the movie Trouble Man was mostly instrumental, yet it managed one top ten hit with the title track.

On November 19, Hip-O Direct will issue a new 40th Anniversary Edition of the album that includes the original soundtrack along with 29 previously unreleased tracks including alternate takes, rare vocals and the full score for the film.

Included is a 28-page booklet with photo outtakes, rare photos and detailed text and track-by-track annotations.
