Mr Green, as Yes and Radiohead also did, with a mastery of the finesse of harmonics, performed miracles within the ears of listeners...

I'm proud of my twelve-year-old self for having the taste back then to really love this and everything else by Al Green that was played on the radio in those days. Knew the words and sang along to all of them. Nearly fifty years later and those songs still sound good. I just don't sing along anymore. Well, not as much. And I make sure I'm alone in the house. :-)

Hey, some of us were too sexy for our shirts in 1975. So we just took them off. Including many of the girls (well at least their bras).

I don't recall many being too uptight to mind it much except old conservative bastards who hadn't gotten laid since Eisenhower. Even when they did it was standard 'missionary'. lol  {#Whistle}

When I pass on, if there is a Heaven, I hope to be greeted by Al Green and Otis Redding, backed by Booker T. and the boys. The selection is their choice. It's all fine with me.

One of the more tolerable top 40 plays back in high school ceramics class where the teacher allowed music but didn't appreciate (tolerate) underground FM stations. (I heard he used to drop acid so he must have had flashbacks hearing Pink Floyd, ELP, Moody Blues, etal...ha ha). Pretty hip song especially compared to the other utter crap played back then on top 40 stations.

Hey, that was one of Al's least outrageous outfits!

But you can't argue the results of his songs... at least, back in the day, pure romance! :-)
