HI 1971, CD £9.87, VINYL £15.08 You Say: “Un­be­liev­able orig­i­nals and cov­ers.” Stephen Gar­cia, via e-mail Su­per-quick fol­low-up to Gets Next To You, this LP moved Green’s song­writ­ing front and cen­tre. In ad­di­tion to the ti­tle track (his first US pop Num­ber 1), La-La For You and Old Time Lovin’ brought sun­shiney soul; So You’re Leav­ing sor­rowed, What Is This Feel­ing up­lifted and It Ain’t No Fun To Me was solidly grounded by the funk laid down in the Hi rhythm sec­tion en­gine room. Two cover ver­sions also grab the at­ten­tion. He re­cal­i­brated the Bee Gees’ How Can You Mend A Bro­ken Heart, ar­guably his most com­plete cover ever, with great del­i­cacy, exquisitely teas­ing out the heart­break and loss in Barry and Robin Gibb’s clas­sic. Mean­while, from across Memphis Ed­die Floyd’s I’ve Never Found A Girl also gets a weighty re­work­ing.
