Al Green I'm Still In Love With You Review

Album. Released 1972.  

BBC Review

Green's masterpiece

David O'Donnell 2008

Born in 1946, Al Green is a living legend. He has had a long and prolific career spanning soul music to gospel. His early 70s work is still considered by may as his finest hour.

Although Al Green' second long player of 1972 has the distinct sexy style of his preceding album, I'm Still In Love With You is exceptional as it finds Green developing a suave romantic tone and becoming more ambitious with his song writing and selections.

Covers of Kris Kristofferson's For The Good Times, and Roy Orbison's Oh Pretty Woman find Green exploring country music and bravely reinterpreting classics with some wonderful results. Alongside these covers, the album harbours some of Greens most inspirational moments songs such as Simply Beautiful and Love And Happiness. The consistently high quality maintained throughout the album has led some critics to argue that I'm Still In Love With You rivals Call Me as Green's masterpiece.
