The Reverend has undeniable powers. I once witnessed a magical Al Green performance at a New Orleans festival, after a particularly dismal set by James Brown one gloomy afternoon. Green, sensing the crowd’s despondency, gave an electrifying display that not only got the audience on its feet but brought the sun out as well. This album, produced by Willie Mitchell who oversaw all of Green’s best 1970s recordings, has much the same power: soulful, joyful and blessed with the uplifting spirit of Green’s sweet falsetto.
