What recording would you choose as the greatest single ever made? Writer Dave Marsh, in his book, “The Heart Of Rock And Soul,” had to make that decision, and (not without some serious consideration, I’m sure) came up with the Marvin Gaye version of “I Heard It Through The Grapevine.” This Motown marvel was Gaye’s 18th Top 40 hit, but also his first number one, staying there for a remarkable seven weeks.
