Roger - I Heard It Through The Grapevine album
Marvin Gaye's version was included on his 1968 album In The Groove (later re-titled I Heard It Through The Grapevine). After E. Rodney Jones, the Chicago disc jockey at WVON, started playing it on the air, Berry Gordy reconsidered and released Gaye's version as a single, which became even more popular and known as the definitive version of the song. For those of you unfamiliar with 80s R&B, Roger Troutman's rendition is a good 10 minutes long and though it uses the same melodic flow as MGaye's, it sounds nothing like it. Minus when I first knew/heard of the song/remake; I can't recall once hearing his version and thinking of the prior versions
