This album is oozing with sensuality, tenderness, passion and string's of majestic hits.

Listening to these Soul classics of Al Green creates a spirit of sexual energy that scores a hit right into the center of the limbic system of your brain: takes away hostility, stress of the day, and other petty worries, and recharges your same brain circuits to fire up thoughts of love, romance, and many other wonderful happenings inappropriate to spell out in this review; prompting heavenly thoughts and feelings you may not have had in a very long time.

Thank GOD Al Green didn't find the aforementioned sooner, otherwise it may have been gospel that Green was remembered for as opposed to these seventies soul gems. Few soul artists come correct like this anymore - this is still a brilliant compilation in which every song carries a hook or melody so naggingly good that you wonder how it's legal. Notice how people react when you play a song as heavenly as 'You Ought To Be With Me', 'Call Me' or 'Livin For You' - they start to wonder where AL Green has been all their lives that is the seductive charm of this record.

Unfortunately 'Greatest Hits' doesn't include some of his more subtle, affecting work like 'How Can You Mend A Broken Heart' or 'I Didn't Know', but the Rev. Al Green can still send a rapturous chill up your spine and make your world that much more joyful by owning this record.
