“I Heard It Through The Grapevine” appeared on Marvin Gaye’s In the Groove album released in 1968. The track went to #1 on the Billboard Hot 100. It was actually the second time the tune had appeared in the Top 10, since Gladys Knight & the Pips had made it to #2 with the track a year or so earlier. It was recorded at Hitsville USA in Detroit, Michigan and produced by Norman Whitfield, who along with Barrett Strong had written the song.
