Al Green Gets Next To You on 180g Import LP from Pure Pleasure

Remastered by Ray Staff at Air Mastering!

Al Green's first major album features a killer selection of raw Memphis soul. The formula for the hits is firmly in place and Al's beautiful voice is swept up wonderfully in the sympathetic production handled here by the great Willie Mitchell. Featuring the great Green originals "All Because," "I'm A Ram," "You Say It" and the classic "Tired of Being Alone" alongside sublime covers of "Driving Wheel," "Can't Get Next To You" and "Light My Fire."

"After the shaky start of Green Is Blues, Al Green and producer Willie Mitchell established their classic sound with Green's second album, Gets Next to You. The main difference is in the rhythm section. Abandoning the gritty syncopations of deep Southern soul, the Hi Rhythm Section plays it slow and seductive, working a sultry, steady pulse that Green exploits with his remarkable voice.

"Alternating between Sam Cooke's croon and Otis Redding's shout, Green develops his own distinctive style, and Gets Next To You only touches the surface of its depth. Although the album is filled with wonderful moments, few are as astonishing as Green and Mitchell's reinterpretation of the Temptations' "I Can't Get Next to You," which turns the original inside out." - Pure Pleasure / AMG
