His first album with HI Records, Green Is Blues, is a mishmash of covers that scream potential. This album was a stripped down showreel of what Al Green was capable of. It’s unrefined, but that’s far from a problem. Music aside, this was an album that created the most important relationship Green would have in his musical career: the relationship with his producer, Willie Mitchell
Al Green’s first four albums are the beginning of the truly sublime rhythm-and-blues story of the 1970s: It’s a story about one of the most soulful voices in pop history - a rough yet refined tenor - combined with a mystically tight Memphis studio band. For generations of inheritors (from Jodeci to U2) and lovers, Green, producer Willie Mitchell and the five-man Hi Records house band set the benchmark for soul. A deliberate version of the Box Tops’ The Letter is the album’s highlight; avoiding their music’s usual bounce, Green and Mitchell explore a slightly dangerous urban variant of older country blues. On 1971’s Gets Next to You and 1972’s Let’s Stay Together and I’m Still in Love With You, the Red Sea parts.

Green's cover of Smoky Robinson's "My Girl" is a soft gentle rendition, then the horns come in to punch up the mix. "The Letter" is a slow smoker as Green milks his romantic longing.
