Sample Sunday: Al Green – “Let’s Stay Together”
Many a night I’ve found myself winding down with a little Al Green. This man; this voice; this music. There is no other like Al Green. Since I recently, bumped some of the soul brother’s joints that I hadn’t heard in a while, I figured I’d let one of my favorite Green tracks be this weeks Sample Sunday.
“Let’s Stay Together” is from the 1972 album of the same title. To say that this track is good would be an understatement. Produced and recorded by Willie Mitchell, I couldn’t imagine this song being for any other artist than Al Green. The track reached #1 on Billboard Hot 100 and was on the chart for 16 weeks. At the end of 1972, “Let’s Stay Together” took the number 1 spot on the Billboard Year-End chart for R&B. Track & Samples after the break.
Notable samples include Lil Wayne’s “Earthquake” feat. Jazze Pha and (recently discovered) Little Brother’s “Light It Up,” produced by Nicolay.
