Play to win (Al Green) (LP 72)

Al Green I Can't Stop (Vinyl - Blue Note, 2003) ****

Genre: Soul

Places I remember: Marbecks Records

Fab, and all the other pimply hyperboles: You

Gear costume: I Can't Stop

Active compensatory factors: Although recorded in 2003 and produced by Willie Mitchell, this all sounds like classic Al Green to my ears.

And classic Al Green is about as good as it gets - horns, Al's distinctive vocals (although a little less prominent in the mix at times), bass and drums locked in - all here! 

Where do they all belong? Brother Al Green is firmly of the Memphis soul family. Next stop would be a compilation like The Very Best Of Al Green.
