Gets Next To You
by Al Green
Released: Aug 1971
Label: Hi Records Under Exclusive License to Fat Possum Records
Though not as celebrated as later classics such as I'm Still in Love, Gets Next to You is still achingly beautiful. Tracks such as "Tired of Being Alone" and "I Can't Get Next to You" are classic. Punchy hornlines, pleading organs and loose, funky guitar riffs complement Green's voice, which is perhaps the most seductive sound ever committed to record.
