5.0 out of 5 stars 5 star album, 1 star mastering job January 30, 2007
Format:Audio CD
I agree with the other reviews -- this album is excellent and, for me, is Al at his best.

I wanted to add my two cents about this particular edition of it, though. I bought this when it came out just to hear the bonus tracks and was horrified at how horrible this cd sounded compared to the previous cd edition on the same label (The Right Stuff) as well as various other cds that contain some of the same hit tracks. The mastering engineer here definitely used too many of the tools at his disposal in an effort to enhance what was already on the master tapes. Unfortunately removing the analog tape hiss (not that it was excessive to begin with anyway) removed the sense of life from these recordings. And other processing REALLY screwed up some of these songs, causing the vocals to become an unfocused mess (I've heard that this is the result of an attempt to widen the stereo image). Do yourself a favor and seek out the previous cd on the same label (unfortunately no bonus tracks there) or an import version on the Demon label.

5.0 out of 5 stars this is his best March 4, 2006
Format:Audio CD
Al Green was the first great soul singer in the 70's. Plenty of releases until today; yet he failed to release a better album than this, with another one called "call me". These 2 albums stand apart from all the rest of his work.
This album definitely sets the standard of what we call today Smooth Soul.
If you are new to Al Green's work, this album next to "call me", are the ones. You will not regret it.

5.0 out of 5 stars Simply Beautiful January 2, 1999
By A Customer
Format:Audio CD
No doubt, this is THE Al Green album. When I first got hip to Mr. Green this was the one that did it. And what an album it is! My personal favorite is "What a Wonderful Thing Love Is". When he enters the song's break singing for the first time in falsetto "...with you..." it just about breaks your heart. Songs like this one make it hard to remain cynical about love.
The rest of the album doesn't have a single weak song either. "Simply Beautiful" is quite likely the most delicate song ever put on wax. When it's time to put the lights down low this track is about as good as it gets. "Love and Happiness" and "I'm Still In Love With You" will probably already be familliar to the average R & B fan but suffer nothing in repeated listening.

5.0 out of 5 stars Possibly One of the Greatest April 1, 2004
Format:Audio CD
First and foremost, this CD is a work of art. This is one of the best R&B CD's I've ever heard. I mean, its up there with Stevie Wonder's "Talking Book" and "Songs In The Key of Life", Donny Hathaway's "Donny Hathaway", and Marvin Gaye's "What's Goin On". To be honest, Al Green is not my favorite singer but this collection of songs is probably the best that I've heard. This is a must have that should be in any music lover's collection.

5.0 out of 5 stars Not like one's the best--as if! August 1, 2003
Format:Audio CD
I find it difficult to declare one specific Al Green album as his BEST. I mean, do people say, for instance, "that's Van Gogh's best painting?" Well, they shouldn't.
I find the following songs on the album, simply sublime, and yes, simply beautiful. When this album came out, he had truly invented his style--smooth R&B (but not cheezy, like, oh god, Michael Bolton). Al's as smooth as microwaved butter (I won't make an allusion to his nickname 'Grits'. That's a whole other story).
The first songs denote a tranquil quality, leading into the minimalist masterpiece, Simply Beautiful--hypnotic, meditative, in which his beautiful voice shines,backed by an instrumental that is almost nonexistent.
But what about songs like "So Tired of Being Alone", "Call Me", or any of the other superb pieces? They're not one this album. This is why this is not my FAVORITE Al Green album. It's a period, a body of work that melds together like acts of a play. I'll just say that this is part of my favorite Al Green period--period.
Oh,and there are bonus tracks; not throw away filler; only a bit of a different feel than the original collection; but what a great little added bonus.

5.0 out of 5 stars Great album, no big problems with sound February 14, 2010
Format:MP3 Music|Verified Purchase
This is a really great album, one of Al Green's all-time classics. A collection of fantastic love songs with a great groove and amazing singing. Perfect for for romanticizing, listening, dancing... you name it.

I was hesitant to buy the recording after reading the previous review about the sound, but I decided to take the risk. I'm not going to say the sound is perfect, but it is definitely OK for me. Perhaps the sound of the LP version was better, but I never had this record on vinyl. To me, it just sounds like a great Al Green album with a funky early 1970s stereo mix -- the kind where some of the instruments are on one channel only, and others on the other channel, with only the most important things audible on both tracks.

This is a great bargain at the special $2.99 price on the MP3 Deal of the Day on Valentine's Day 2010. At the special price you can't go wrong. Once the price goes up again, it's still a great album.

5.0 out of 5 stars Soul has never been better! June 8, 2006
Format:Audio CD
I agree, why aren't there more reviews of this album?

Al Green is quite possibly the most underrated artist ever, soul music or otherwise. Though some might disagree, most of this is due to the fact that the 70's was extremely competitve music-wise. Whlie The Reverend is remembered, he is not remembered as fondly as Marvin Gaye, Teddy Pendergrass and Barry White. And that beloved is a shame.

Still in Love with You is a complete album. The type of album that you can play straight through, in order, time after time. Each songs flows into the next creating the sense of a man giving a melodic testimony concerning his innermost feelings about love, life, longing, pain, sadness melancholy and redemption. Not a wasted note, sound or breath is to be found on the entire album.

Of all of the instruments used in the making of this album, Al's voice is the greatest of them. It can be heard best on "Simply Beautiful". It is simple, controlled and seductive. He purposely teases with a falsetto that's as light as a feather yet as powerful as a tiger. All within his control at the same time. He sings as if he's whispering in his lady's ear - the moans at the end are potent enough to produce babies themselves.

You cannot be a music fan or collector of any kind without owning this album. Masterpiece is an understatement..this is what the soul afterlife must be like.
