Al Green's smooth delivery combined with a serious bass track, makes you want to pull your car over to the side of the road and move your feet for just a moment. I found myself shaking my head at the wonderfulness of it all when Al hits his patented high note on some of the slower tempo tunes.
I have listened to Al Green for years and he is in constant rotation in my car. Nothing feels like a ride up to Napa on a warm summer day with Al Green playing in the background reminding you of other summer days gone by.
Anyone who has watched any of the American Idol type shows would do well to take a listen to this magnificent CD before the new batch of shows start to get a clear understanding of musical genius. A truely outstanding piece of work.
Furthermore, the decision to go back to many of the musicians who helped Green craft his distinctive, Philly soul-meets-gospel sound the first time around is genius because it brings a piece of the past into the present with stellar results. I would have hated to see Mr. Green try to turn to hip-hop/rap artists to give him street credibility or even worse, put his comeback into secular music into the hands of Dianne Warren or other write by the dozen writers.
Having said that, there are some surprises to be found as there are some B.B. King influences added to the light string arrangements, complementary harmonies, crisp horn sections, and crackling guitar, arrangements that make songs such as "I Can't Stop" (single of the year as far as I am concerned) "You", and "I'd Still Choose You". I also love "Not Tonight".
As usual with any Al Green recording, the focus is on the man's impressive range, which is second to none and somehow sounds better than it ever has.Read more ›

Right before this release, I saw Al Green live in concert twice. Both times were very recently. Maybe 2001 and 2003. The first time was a smaller indoor arena. Read morePublished on May 29, 2008 by Vincent M. Mastronardi
