United is a studio album by soul musicians Marvin Gaye and Tammi Terrell, released August 29, 1967 on the Motown-subsidiary label Tamla Records. Harvey Fuqua and Johnny Bristol produced all of the tracks on the album, with the exception of “You Got What It Takes” (produced by Motown CEO Berry Gordy, Jr.) and “Oh How I’d Miss You” (produced by Hal Davis). Fuqua and Bristol produced “Hold Me Oh My Darling” and “Two Can Have a Party” as Tammi Terrell solo tracks in 1965 and 1966, and had Gaye overdub his vocals to them in order to create duet versions of the songs.

United yielded four Top 100 Billboard chart hits, including the two Top 10 singles “Your Precious Love,” “If I Could Build My Whole World Around You,” the Top 20 single, “Ain’t No Mountain High Enough” and “If This World Were Mine”. United peaked at #69 on the U.S. Billboard 200 album chart and #7 on the U.S. Billboard R&B albums chart upon its release. The album was the first of two collaborative albums by Gaye and Terrell.
