1971: The album "What's Going On" by Marvin Gaye is released. It was Gaye's 11th studio album and the first for which he was credited as a producer. The concept album is told from the point of view of a Vietnam War veteran returning to the country he had been fighting for, and seeing nothing but injustice, suffering and hatred. It would become Gaye's first album to reach the Billboard Top LPs top 10, peaking at No. 6 and staying on the chart for nearly a year.
