Editors’ Notes

Sometimes you can feel your own soul when you gaze into your lover’s eyes and there’s an ache in your gut that’s beyond words. It’s visceral, it’s rare, it’s humbling, and it’s tinged with unquenchable yearning. That’s what Al Green’s sixth album—1973’s Call Me—is like. The opening title song, a maudlin-free pleader if ever there was one, sets that tone, and it rarely wavers throughout the album. “Have You Been Making Out OK?” and “Your Love Is Like the Morning Sun” showcase Green’s masterful ear for nostalgic nuance, feathery melodies, and songwriterly restraint. But there are no finer examples from the '70s that showcase how country music and soul are kindred than Green’s covers of Willie Nelson’s “Funny How Time Slips Away” and Hank Williams' “I’m So Lonesome I Could Cry.” Green simply owns both songs here. The finale, “Jesus Is Waiting,” puts things into aching perspective but with an upbeat subtext; Green is telling us that if we can’t call on him, well, The Anointed One will have your back.

Al Green was the first great soul singer of the '70s and arguably the last great Southern soul singer. With his seductive singles for Hi Records in the early '70s, Green bridged the gap between deep soul and smooth Philadelphia soul. He incorporated elements of gospel, interjecting his performances with wild moans and wails, but his records were stylish, boasting immaculate productions that rolled along with a tight beat, sexy backing vocals, and lush strings. The distinctive Hi Records sound that...
