On this day in music history: August 31, 1968 - “You’re All I Need To Get By” by Marvin Gaye & Tammi Terrell hits #1 on the Billboard R&B singles chart for 5 weeks, also peaking at #7 on the Hot 100 on September 14, 1968. Written and produced by Nickolas Ashford & Valerie Simpson, it’s the second R&B chart topper for the duo of Gaye & Terrell. Sadly it will be the last major hit to feature Tammi Terrell on lead vocals. Gaye and Terrell will actually record their vocals separately. Terrell is recovering from surgery for a malignant brain tumor at the time, one of several she will have between 1967 and 1970 before she passes away in March of that year. The song will be covered a number of different artists over the years, including versions by Aretha Franklin, Dionne Warwick, and Johnny Mathis & Deniece Williams. It will be revived again in 1995 when rapper Method Man and singer Mary J. Blige cover “You’re All I Need To Get By” (#1 R&B, #3 Pop), winning a Grammy Award for Best Rap Performance by a Duo or Group in 1996.
