Let's Stay Together

LP (Item 11654) Hi Records, 1972 — Condition: Very Good-
Also available
Al Green — Let's Stay Together (180 gram pressing) ... LP 13.99

A damn great bit of work from the legendary Al Green – maybe one of his best records ever – and in fact, maybe one of greatest soul albums of all time! The set's got a style that's really genre-defining – not the previous southern soul of a few years before, but also not the modes that were happening up north either. Instead, Al lays things out with this stunningly mature style – sexy, but never overdone – confident, but never in a swaggering way – with a really special flow that comes from the great Willie Mitchell's talents in the studio, but an edge that's Green at his secular best. The album's got a lasting appeal that's made it a favorite for generations – both a key introduction to soul, but also a treasured favorite for longtime collectors – and every track's a gem – from the classic "Let's Stay Together", through a set list that includes "I've Never Found A Girl", "La La For You", "How Can You Mend A Broken Heart", "So You're Leaving", and "What Is This Feeling".  © 1996-2020, Dusty Groove, Inc.
(Hi pressing. Cover has a small center split in the bottom seam.)

Very Good - (minus)

  • Vinyl may be dirty, and can lack a fair amount of luster.
  • Vinyl can have a number of marks, either in clusters or smaller amounts, but deeper.
  • This is the kind of record that you'd buy to play, but not because it looked that great. Still, the flaws should be mostly cosmetic, with nothing too deep that would ruin the overall record.
  • Examples include a record that has been kept for a while in a cover without the paper sleeve, or heavily played by a previous owner and has some marks across the surface. The record should play okay, though probably with surface noise.

Additional Marks & Notes

If something is noteworthy, we try to note it in the comments — especially if it is an oddity that is the only wrong thing about the record. This might include, but isn't limited to, warped records, tracks that skip, cover damage or wear as noted above, or strictly cosmetic flaws.

Full Of Fire
Hi Records, 1976. Near Mint-
Hi Records perfection from the mighty Al Green – slightly later than some of his key early hits, but a record that shows Green still taking fire on all burners! Production is by the team of Al and Willie Mitchell – in a mode that's slightly fuller and more updated than before, but ... LP, Vinyl record album

Belle Album
Hi Records, 1977. Very Good+
Al takes over the whole deal with this one – as the record features him writing, producing, arranging, and even playing lead guitar – stepping out from under the protective wing of Willie Mitchell, and doing a surprisingly great job overall! Al does get a bit of help in the studio ... LP, Vinyl record album

Al Green Is Love
Hi Records, 1975. Very Good+
Heavenly soul doesn't get any more heavenly than this!

This album's maybe slightly less iconic than some of Green's other titles for Hi ... LP, Vinyl record album

Green Is Blues
Hi Records, 1972. Near Mint-
Well, we don't know if we'd say that Al Green is blues – because he's still singing in his wonderfully sweet Memphis soul style – but this album definitely has a sound that gives a nod to the classic bluesy soul that inspired Al's work in the years before he put things together with his ...

Livin For You
Hi Records, 1973. Sealed
Hard to go wrong with Al Green at this point – 1973, when the mighty one was at the height of his secular soul powers – and when the sweetly compressed production style of Willie Mitchell just couldn't miss! There's a homey, earthy feel to the record that's really great – a sound ... LP, Vinyl record album

Syl Johnson

Uptown Shakedown
Hi Records, 1978. Near Mint-
A different sound than usual for Syl Johnson – but a record that still has loads of those amazing vocals we love from Syl! The style's mostly modern soul – with a tightness that's different from the grit of earlier Johnson albums – that mode in which other singers of the time ... LP, Vinyl record album
Hi Records, Late 60s. Near Mint-
Funky Willie Mitchell at his best – "hit sound" to be sure, but one that still has plenty of grit in the grooves! The record's one from that stretch when Willie was working in a style that was more funky 45 than anything else – trumpet-heavy instrumentals that seem to take ... LP, Vinyl record album
