This album is as finer slice of Soul as has ever been recorded. Since it's release in late 1972, it has come to regarded as a classic, and even if you have never heard the album in it's entirety, you will almost certainly have heard tracks from it featured on samples and soundtracks.
Al Green's work with Willie Mitchell had seen the release of 3 albums, featuring several hit singles. Those albums each refined the Southern Soul sound a little, allowing Al to develop his songwriting talents and find his own voice - and it all came together on "Still In Love With You".
From the beginnning, Al Green's trademark vocal delivery swoops and soars around the Hodges Brothers rhythym tracks, sometimes driving on , as on "Pretty Woman", sometimes coming almost to stop, as on "Simply Beautiful". When he sings a song, Al makes it his own, and never more so than on Kristofferson's "For The Good Times", which he turns into a Soul tour de force. Hits from the album include the title track and "Love and Happiness", but it's not about individual tracks, as this album is one which deserves to be heard as one.
If you are into Soul music, then your collection is not complete without Al Green's "white album"
