Let’s Stay Together

Al Green

Hi Records

Home of Green’s biggest hit, the timeless ‘Let’s Stay Together,’ and the heartbreaking string-fest of his cover of the Bee Gees ’How Can You Mend A Broken Heart,’ this album is a slightly slicker outing than ‘Al Green Gets Next To You’ with more orchestration, cleaner production and less funk. His soul music contemporaries maybe have been experimenting with wah wah guitars, early drum machines, synths and social commentary, but Green was happy to deliver a set of sweet, unhurried love songs and ruminations on heartbreak; a smooth version of Southern soul, arranged to perfection by Willie Mitchell.
