#286: Call Me by Al Green

1.11.2012


Call Me by Al Green (1973)

Favorite Track(s): "Call Me (Come Back Home)" and "Have You Been Making Out O.K." and "Stand Up" and "I'm So Lonesome I Could Cry" and "Funny How Time Slips Away" and "You Ought to Be With Me" and "Jesus is Waiting"

Thoughts: So on the list I'm checking off each album on, it just lists the album title and then the artist, so when this one showed up, I thought it said "Call Me Al"! HA! Little Paul Simon humor for you there.

But seriously, I was so excited that this was the first album I got to listen to today. Al Green is such a balm to the ears and soul. The production is sublime, the voice one-of-a-kind, and the music as fresh today as it was I'm sure it was in '73.

Is This Better Than Help!?: Yes.
