  • Al Green

    Gets Next To You LP (1971)

    Hi Records

Ranked #145 in the Soul Strut 200

Of Al Green's catalogue, this and I'm Still In Love With You seems to resonate the most with people on Soul Strut.  The wild cover art of Green sporting a flashy blue fur coat also inspired a famous emoticon used on the forum.  This was more or less the album that really broke him as a superstar, and the hit track "Tired Of Being Alone" hints at the sophistication that was to come.   This album also features the slow driving train knowns as "I'm A Ram" with a groove that will give you the stank face.
