"What a run. Twelve albums with Hi-Records and 26 singles. Five of the albums sold gold, one going on to platinum. Six in a row hit the top of the R&B charts, five broke the pop top 20. Six #1 R&B singles, six more at #2 or #3; on the pop side, 7 were top ten. There's something about those 1970s recordings that makes them stand out, makes them more than the work of a few men. They are about love, they are about sex, they are about sweat and flesh and lips and eyeballs - and they are divine. They are so full of feel and hmanity and love that they celebrate the holiness of creation and creativity. These songs transcend the physical world by celebrating physical love, they imbue the human touch with spiritual feeling. They are musical incense. These Al Green songs, these Willie Mitchell productions, these collaborations from the Hodges brothers, from brother James Mitchell, from the Rhodes, the Chalmers, the regular horn and string players - these works of art make the world look different. They make the world sound different. They put the loved ones you see everyday in a different light. Al Green, as he declared, is love. He's also art. Long lasting, smooth sounding, very appealing art in the very highest order." - Robert Gordon
