Officially Historic

Al Green’s soul classic “Let’s Stay Together,” [is] among 25 new sound recordings selected for preservation by the Library of Congress, organizers announced today (April 6, 2011). The National Recording Registry of the Library of Congress ensures that cultural, artistic and historical recordings will always be available to the American public. Under the terms of the National Recording Preservation Act of 2000, the Librarian, with advice from the Library’s National Recording Preservation Board, is tasked each year with selecting 25 recordings that are “culturally, historically or aesthetically significant” and at least 10 years old.

repectful response to FlyTherapy

edsullivan1

not only did the Bee Gees write "How can you mend...", but they released it in '71...Al's was not the original, glorious as it is. (to the best of my knowledge, this info is correct)

As another reviewer rightly stated, don't get the Greatest Hits, getting every Green album you can get your hands on. My first was the Greatest Hits, years ago, but I've since explored the wonders of each solo album. This is a great place to start.

Avoid 'Greatest Hits' - Start Here...'

FlyTherapy

Every college stereo in America plays Al Green's Greatest Hits between the hours of 3-6am. A shame, really, since 'Let's Stay Together' is the place to start. This collection, while not bursting with the good Reverend's well-known hitz, has an understated swing to it that is perfect for partying-down, or getting down. Plus, the sublime "How Can You Mend A Broken Heart" shines here in its original glory, before The BeeGees destroyed it. A truly unbelievable piece of funk-art.

There is an issue between the Emusic Download Manager and iTunes. Turn off your synch to iTunes option and you'll be fine. Or you can continue to be hysterical. Your choice.

Six Degrees of A Love Supreme

By Britt Robson, Contributor

It used to be easier to pretend that an album was its own perfectly self-contained artifact. The great records certainly feel that way. But albums are more permeable than solid, their motivations, executions and inspirations informed by, and often stolen from, their peers and forbearers. It all sounds awfully formal, but it's not. It's the very nature of music — of art, even. The Six Degrees features examine the relationships between classic records and five… more »

They Say All Music Guide

Prior to this album, Al Green never had a number one song. The title track, “Let’s Stay Together,” achieved that status and held it for nine consecutive weeks. Green’s ingenuity produced one of the all-time classics, which has the bounce of a dance cut and the passion of a ballad. The dynamic soul singer’s whispers, animated cries, and riffing enhance his already stirring delivery. This album was sold on the strength of the title track as there were no other selections to grace the Billboard charts. However, this album includes the timeless gem “How Can You Mend a Broken Heart” and lesser-known beauties like the exulting “Judy,” the cookin’ testimonial “I Never Found a Girl,” and the soothing blues effort “It Ain’t No Fun to Me.” The Arkansas native and his creative partner Willie Mitchell season these selections with lucid rhythm arrangements complemented by the faint strums of a guitar and brawn, unchiding horns. – Craig Lytle
