Man, in his prime, was Al Green ever smooth. I'm sure he probably still is, I don't know. I haven't kept up. I ran into an early cut of his over at Groove Addict, from his first LP, pre-Hi Records, on a record label started by high school friends of his. It's early, and considering copies sell for about sixty bucks, I bet it's out of print. Groove Addict has the whole LP too, but a word of warning. It's hosted at Zippyshare and the path there is littered with pop-ups. I would only go for it with good virus protection and your pop-up blocker on stun. There's a couple others down there if you don't feel like hassling with it. "Love and Happiness" has one of my favorite intros of all time. The way everything comes in. I've heard it a thousand times and it's still goosebump good. Even if you're familiar with it, take a few minutes and remind yourself, dig on a perfect song.
