REQUIRED LISTENING: a musician's personal notes about favorite artists.

AL GREEN
I'm Still in Love With You.
Al Green could be the greatest soul singer of all time. The way he draws you in and seduces your ears (and soul) is a wonder. I can't think of anyone who does it better. This CD is one of his biggest sellers. One of the reasons this is also one of his finest works is the way each song flows effortlessly into the next. Included are smash hits such as the title track featuring Al Green's lilting falsetto, "Love and Happiness," (which opens with one of the best 30 seconds in music history) and "Look What You Done For Me," a perfect blend of horns, strings and amazing soul. "Simply beautiful" is as delicate and intimate as possible while "One Of These Good Old Days" leaves you with a reflective beauty that can only be created by a master. Producer Willie Mitchell was Al's secret weapon: creating a delicate web of sound that Al could add his beautiful voice on top of to create some of the finest music ever recorded.
