Here, My Dear is the fifteenth studio album by music artist Marvin Gaye, released December 15, 1978, on Motown-subsidiary label Tamla Records. Recording sessions for the album took place between 1977 and 1978 at Gaye's personal studios, Marvin Gaye Studios, in Los Angeles, California. The album was notable for its subject matter focusing largely on Gaye's acrimonious divorce from first wife (and daughter of the president of Gaye's record label), Anna Gordy Gaye.

The ultimate divorce record, Marvin Gaye recorded Here, My Dear as part of his alimony obligations to Anna Gordy. He initially intended to record a crap album, but his intense emotions soon bled through to the record. Gaye initially held back the record, fearing it was too personal, and was nearly sued for invasion of privacy by Gordy. Although the album was initially a commercial failure, it has subsequently been critically acclaimed as a masterpiece

Recorded and mixed at the Marvin Gaye Studio, Hollywood, California. Mastered at the Motown Recording Studio, Hollywood, California. 1978 Motown Record Company ℗ 1978 Motown Record Company, . Exclusively licensed to Polygram International Music . Very bitter in places, but timeless soul all the way through - a very important part of the Marvin Gaye story. Could be called a concept album, as the tracks are tied by the subject matter. A real journey through the downs of a relationship. This starts in a very melancholic way.

One of the conditions of the settlement was that Gordy Gaye would receive an extensive percentage of royalties as well as a portion of the advance for his next album. Initially, Gaye was contemplating giving less than his best effort, as he wouldn't stand to receive any money, but then reconsidered at the last moment.
