Remastered by Ray Staff at Air Mastering, Lyndhurst Hall, London

Remastered reissue of this 1974 album from the legendary soul vocalist. Producer Willie Mitchell used a lighter touch for his most famous artist, and it's all but crafted into the Al Green sound. Despite his skills, Green never falls into mannerism here and gives heartfelt and cogent vocals rooted in intelligence and technique. "Sha-La-La (Make Me Happy)," although lyrically slight, has the artist's charisma and Mitchell's pop chops. "Take Me to the River," with perfect backing from Hi Rhythm and a horn and string arrangement, finds Green at his most persuasive. But the biggest draw here is Green's phrasing and intimate vocals, making the record an extremely strong effort.
