The Memphis Sound took its greatest steps toward 1970s smoothness with Al Green. Let's Stay Together is a showcase of the combination of grit and honey that made the singer one of the decade's foremost artist-hit-makers.

In addition to the classic title single--a pop and R&B No. 1 in 1972--the album offers prime early examples of other Green trademarks: an unexpected cover (the Bee Gees' "How Can You Mend a Broken Heart") and the outright eccentricity of "So You're Leaving", which answers gossips with the assurance that if "they'll lie on Jesus, can't you see they'll lie on you and me."


The title track to Let's Stay Together has become Al Green's signature song and a certified r&b classic. The song is one of the definitive Memphis soul songs with its smooth organ punctuated by horns , Rev. Green comes in a low voice and then in the chorus reaches up to a heavenly falsetto. The song became his only his only number one on the pop charts. The album also contains one of his most underrated songs, a stirring version of the Bee Gees' "How Can You Mend A Broken Heart". Rev. Green sings it with a true pain in his voice and the emotion practically oozes out of your speakers. Other excellent songs include "So You're Leaving", "I've Never Found A Girl" and "Judy".
