Marvin Gaye - Mercy Mercy Me (Rapson Edit)



I posted the phenomenal DJ Day Edit of What's Going On about a week ago. Since I recently bought the Rapson Edits 12" as well I thought I would make a post about it also since they go well together.

Mark Rapson, a well established UK based keyboard player/producer, has created three solid re-edits (Mercy Mercy Me, Grapevine, The Real Thing) from the original multi tracks of these classics. Grapevine and The Real Thing are nice, extended edits but Mercy Mercy Me is the one that really stands out. The edits are out and available on a 12" but act like you know since the record seems to be out of stock in quite a few stores.

Marvin Gaye has been remixed, covered etc. always but it's funny that these two edits (DJ Day Edit and Rapson Edit) came out almost simultaneously and they are so much alike. Both edits are respectful to the original but still succeed in adding that little extra to a classic song.

What a beautiful edit. Thanks for sharing. I really dig your blog. You were right about this record being nearly sold out. Luckily I found a copy.

I have been searching for this track for months. So glad you could post it for everyone to enjoy. One of the best edits I have heard in a long time. I look forward to more from Marc Rapson in the future.
