Hand picked records important to the history of Soul Strut.
Ranked #66 in the Soul Strut 200
Al Green album that continues to make every list imaginable including the Rolling Stone 500, Mojo Top 70s Soul, and of course, the most important, the Soul Strut 100 as a Grade A end to end classic.

I'm Still in Love with You features the smooth stepper title track, the R&B smash "Love and Happiness," and perhaps the most relevant to Soul Strut, "I'm Glad Your Mine, with it's much sampled drum intro (trip hop anyone?)

An easy one to find on LP and an even easier one to file.
