Album: 'Marvin Gaye: GOLD' (2004)
A great song from this duo! It reached #7 on BIllboard, and #1 on the R&B charts in the US, #9 in Canada, and #34 in the UK. 'Ain't Nothing Like the Real Thing' was written and produced by Nickolas Ashford and Valerie Simpson. They also contributed backing vocals. The Funk Brothers performed the music. Its an excellent production all around. There is a picture of Nickolas Ashford and Valerie Simpson around 1:45. They wrote a lot of hits!
Hope you enjoy this little treasure. Marvin Gaye and Tammi Terrell were great together! They had a magic between them :))
