Al Green, Al Green Gets Next To You (1971)
About a decade ago I got hooked on the Hi Records stuff; that run of great Al Green records. I’d been an Al Green fan (who isn’t, right?) but then I started moving into the classic records. And this one was always a favourite. So many good tunes. I bought a new reissue of the LP a few years ago and kept it sealed for a long time. No real reason; just figured I didn’t need to hear it in a while – still have the album on my iPod, etc. Had a day off recently and it was the very best sort of old/new album to tear the seal on, to kick-start the day with; the revisit. I’ve been loving it all over again. Fallen back in love with it big time. Such a great record. My favourite Al Green album? Well there are a few gems but this is always in the running for my favourite.
