Together is the first and only studio album released by the duo team of American Motown artists Marvin Gaye and Mary Wells. It was released on the Motown label on April 15, 1964; the album brought together the rising star Gaye with Wells, an established star with a number-one pop hit to her name, singing standards and show tunes, in the hopes that Gaye would benefit from the exposure. This album became the first charted album credited to Gaye, peaking at number forty-two on the Billboard Pop Albums chart and yielding two top twenty singles, "Once Upon a Time" and "What's the Matter with You Baby". Shortly afterwards, who received bad advice from her former husband and manager, left Motown upon reaching twenty-one; the label had to find another duet partner for Gaye, enlisting Kim Weston for one album, Take Two consisting of similar material, but yielding a longer-lasting pairing of Gaye with Tammi Terrell, with more contemporary material.

Lukang known as Lugang and by other names, is an urban township in northwestern Changhua County, Taiwan. The township is on the west coast of Taiwan. Lukang was an important sea port in 19th century, it was the most populous city in central Taiwan until the early 20th century. In March 2012, it was named one of the Top 10 Small Tourist Towns by the Tourism Bureau of Taiwan; the township's name, which means "Deer Port", came from its deerskin trade during the Dutch period. Its old Taiwanese name was Lok-a-kang and its shortened version is seen in English texts and maps as variants such as Lok-kang, Lokang and Lo-kiang. In 2011, the Ministry of Interior decided to keep the historical Wade-Giles spelling "Lukang" and abandon the change to the Pinyin spelling "Lugang" consistent with the switch to Tongyong Pinyin in 2002 and Hanyu Pinyin 2009. During the Qing Dynasty, the depth of Lukang's harbor and its proximity to Fujian province on mainland China made Lukang an important trading port. During Lukang's heyday from 1785 to 1845, Lukang's population reached 20,000.
Lukang was Taiwan's second largest city after Tainan and was larger than Bangka the island's third-largest city. The subsequent silting of the harbor and the city's refusal to allow railroads to pass through the city led to losses in trade in commerce, which, in turn led to Lukang's decline relative to other cities, which were experiencing considerable urbanization and population growth; this same decline, averted the modernization processes that demolished historical buildings in Tainan and Taipei, leaving Lukang preserved as it was in the past. During the period of Japanese rule, the city was Taiwan's fifth most populous city, with a population of 19,805 according to the December 1904 census; the Hoklo people in the area were predominantly of Xiamen and Quanzhou origin, thereby speaking the Quanzhou dialect of Hokkien. Nanguan music is popular in Lukang and originates from Quanzhou. In 1920, Lukang was governed as Rokkō Town under Shōka District of Taichū Prefecture. There are many old temples such as Longshan Temple and Matzu Temple.
The city boasts over 200 temples dedicated to a wide variety of folk deities. The town is the origin of the terms "ē-káng" and "téng-káng" used to refer to southern Taiwan and northern Taiwan; the Yu Jen Jai cakes are famous local specialties, as well as Lukang's Ox Tongue Cakes and oyster pancakes. It will host the 2012 Taiwan Lantern Festival. Lukang encompasses 39.46 square kilometers with a population of 86,779, including 44,115 males and 42,664 females as of January 2017. The township comprises 29 villages, which are Dayou, Luojin, Pulun, Yushun, Guocuo, Jingfu, Zhangxing, Longshan, Jiewei, Haipu, Caozhong, Shanlun, Toulun, Liaocuo and Dingcuo.
