Al Green - I Can't Stop - Blue Note

After his reign of the R&B and pop charts in the 70’s with classics like “I’m Still In Love With You,” “Let’s Stay Together,” “Tired of Being Alone,” and “Here I Am,” Al Green decided to join the ministry and by the 1980’s was only releasing Gospel records and has been primarily been a religious performer since then.

I Can’t Stop reunites Green with producer Willie Mitchell, the architect behind Green’s glory days for their first recording since 1985. Recorded at the legendary Hi Studios in Memphis with many of the original musicians from the days of his classic hits, I Can’t Stop finds Al Green at the top of his old-school funky, R&B game.

Songs like the title track, “You,” the ballad “Rainin’ In My Heart,” “Play To Win,” and the rockin’ “I’ve Been Thinkin’ About You” evoke nostalgia yet maintain a contemporary, good time vibe. Al Green and Willie Mitchell have orchestrated a very welcome comeback.
