Let's Get It On is the thirteenth studio album by American singer-songwriter Marvin Gaye, originally released in August 1973 via Tamla Records.

Recording sessions for the album took place during June 1970 to July 1973 at Hitsville U.S.A. and Golden World Studio in Detroit, and at Hitsville West in Los Angeles.

Serving as Gaye's first venture into the funk genre and romance-themed music, Let's Get It On incorporates smooth soul, doo-wop, and quiet storm.

It has been noted by critics for its sexually suggestive lyrics, and was cited by one writer as "one of the most sexually charged albums ever recorded".

Following the breakthrough success of his socially conscious album What's Going On (1971), Let's Get It On helped establish Gaye as a sex icon and furthered his mainstream appeal. It produced three singles—the title track "Let's Get It On", "Come Get to This", and "You Sure Love to Ball"—that attained Billboard chart success.

Let's Get It On became the most commercially successful album of Gaye's recording career, and it further expanded his creative control during his tenure with Motown. Its sexual balladry, multi-tracking of Gaye's vocals, and seductive, funk sound influenced later R&B artists and production.

The album has been regarded by many music writers and critics as a landmark recording in soul music. It furthered funk music's popularity during the 1970s, and its smooth soul sound marked a change for his record label's previous success with the "Motown Sound" formula.

Let's Get It On has been ranked on many critics and publications' lists of the best albums of all time. 

The album peaked at #2 on the US Billboard 200 Albums charts.

Check out a couple of tracks from the album:  Let's Get It OnPlease Stay (Once You Go Away)If I Should Die TonightCome Get To This and You Sure Love To Bail.

This LP record is a 2018 Record Store Day limited edition celebrating the 45th Anniversary of the album on red coloured vinyl housed in a gatefold sleeve, pressed in Europe.
