This album truly is the very best of Al Green and if you are looking for an album that you can slip on while you are with your lover...this is it here, the songs truly touch at the core of what love is all about. I especially love 'Let's stay together'. Al Green has the voice and lyrics to go with it, that just make you want to fully appreciate your significant other all the more. Very smooth and soothing, yet romantic and great at mood setting!

What can I tell you about Al Green that you don't already know ?
"Simply Beautiful"- is just that, one man, a guitar, a tape recorder, a microphone, and the capturing of undiluted naked soul, from the inside of a human being.
"How can you mend a broken heart ?" - go and live, fall in love, break up, and have your world torn apart, then realise Al did it 30 years before you, he equates the importance of his heart and the magnitude of his pain, with questions that have baffled humans for all history
"Let's stay together"- "I...I'm SO in love with you....what ever you want to do, is alright with me" sang with the most perfect combination of soul and tireless production values of the day
I love this CD and I love Al Green, because you can hear every little bit of the instruments, the hand and plec hitting the acoustic guitar, the reverb of the room, the snare on the drum, then the gorgeous warmth of the horns, and of course the perfect and versatile singing voice, with some very heart felt and perfectly formed lyrics.
Every now and then, a musician comes along and you know he/she is special, and Al Green is definatley one of them.
Not everything on this cd is classical though, but to be honest, I would buy it for 2 or 3 tracks which are actually timeless.

I brought this album for one purpose and one purpose only 'Let's Stay Together'
I didn't know who sung it because I was an 80's baby raised in the 90's it was before my time, but eventually found out that Al did.
After owning this album 2 months now I have been gripped by Al's presents on the mic, I now have 15 favorite songs on the album, they don't call it greatest hits for nothing!!
I feel so strongly about this album because when ever I hear it, it just makes me feel good, I literally have a smile on my face throughout the album!!
I have an ultimate favorite, but it was hard to pick with great songs like 'Simply Beautiful' 'Sha La La' 'Tired of Being Alone' and 'How Can You Mend a Broken Heart' getting in the way, but 'L.O.V.E.' is just fantastic!!
I now own 5 of Al Greens albums!

Anyone who's looking to get into classic Soul/R'n'B I recommend to start with Al Green, this guy is a legend!! Enjoy.

Al Green's voice is sensational. Most of the songs are great. Singing along to them is a must plus 'simply beautiful' has to be the ultimate getting-it-on song ever. What more can I say! I love this album.

I've had this CD for around ten years and it's still one of my favourite compilations. Real value for money because of the very generous track listing;

Let's Stay Together, Sha La La, L-O-V-E, Tired Of Being Alone, Call Me, Simply Beautiful, I'm Still In Love With You,
Here I Am, Look What You Done For Me, Take Me To The River, How Can You Mend A Broken Heart?,
You Ought To Be With Me, Let's Get Married, Full Of Fire, Livin' For You, Keep Me Cryin', I Say A Little Prayer,
Unchained Melody.

The very best of Al Green is exactly that; his best know songs are all here.

Well worth buying and currently, at time of writing this review, out of stock on Amazon so pick up a stray copy if you happen to see one around. Highly recommended.

Arrived in perfect condition and quick. Had the album on repeat since it arrived.
The only qualm would be that it doesn't feature 'Can't get next to you' otherwise love the album and his version of Unchained Melody. The only version of that song that I actually like.

1) Let's stay together
2) SHA LA LA (make me happy)
3) L-O-V-E (love)
4) Tired of being alone
5) Call me (come back home)
6) Simply beautiful
7) I'm still in love with you
8) Here I am (come and take me)
9) Look what you done for me
10) Take me to the river
11) How can you mend a broken heart?
12) You ought to be with me
13) Let's get married
14) Full of fire
15) Livin' for you
16) Keep me cryin'
17) I say a little prayer
18) Unchained melody

My experiences of buying 70's soul albums on cd and mp3 were such that I was driven to re-purchase most on vinyl because of the thin, brittle sound many attempts at transferring the original masters to a digital format produced.
This 2001 compilation bucks the trend and its mastering allows the original Willie Mitchell productions to shine through.
For anyone who loves John Newman but hasn't investigated the Reverend Green this is a compulsory purchase !
