Simply Classic Soul,
This review is from: Lay It Down (Audio CD)
Wow, I don't write many reviews but had to write one here as this album deserves to be a massive hit. Al has had help from the younger generation of soul artists in the form of Anthony Hamilton, Corinne Bailey Rae, John Legend and even the Dap Kings horn section. Each make lovely somewhat understated contributions, but make no mistake Al Green is the star of this classic set !! The set flows smoothly through each delicious slice of southern soul. Eleven tracks and they all hit the mark with Al on top form vocally. I'm not even tempted to skip any tracks, this really is music for your soul. I hope that this gets the Grammy recognition it so richly deserves !!
