The 2014 Advent-ure : #12

Feeling a bit jaded today and as a result the inspiration for a record to play sort of deserted me. In the end I felt drawn to one of my original (Schweppes) boxes. I pulled out a handful that I haven't played in years, as much as anything looking for hidden gems lurking on the B sides. I found one too, but I will save that for another day. I wanted to feature something more up tempo as it's Friday - and I felt like I needed a shot in the arm. This 1976 outing from Al Green fits the bill perfectly. I'm not sure, until now, I have ever appreciated how good this track is. You can find it on his Full Of Fire album.

The mp3 was good to go but at the last minute, fearful of a takedown request, I decided to hold it back.

I suppose we say this about different artists at different times, but when you listen to Al Green, does it get any better? I'd forgotten what a belting song this is.
