Al Green 'Georgia Boy'

In 1977 Al Green departed from his famed Hi Rhythm Section band and long time producer Willie Mitchell, tried his hand at lead guitar and penned songs for 'The Belle Album'. The album was well received by critics but never sold in nearly the same volumes as earlier works, despite being arguably his most assured work since 'Call Me'. 'Georgia Boy' is a sweet piece of down-home country soul with a loose bluesy jam feel that gets right underneath the skin and demands repeated listens.
