Al Green

I'm Still in Love With You

Composed by Al Green / Al Jackson, Jr. / Willie Mitchell

Song Review by

Al Green was in the midst of his '70s heyday when he, producer Willie Mitchell, and Stax drummer and Booker T. & the MG's member Al Jackson Jr. went to a Hot Springs, AR, resort to unwind and write songs. Besides another Green favorite, "Love and Happiness," the trio came up with "I'm Still in Love With You." Another smooth, falsetto-laced mid-groover, Green effortlessly phrases the lyrics in a way that seems to make them float around the track. It didn't hurt that the song also sports the tight rhythm section heard on all of Green's best known hits: Jackson, bassist Leroy Hodges, his brothers -- keyboardist Charles Hodges and guitarist Mabon Hodges -- and percussionist Howard Grimes. "I'm Still in Love With You" parked at number one R&B for two weeks and number three pop in summer 1972. The I'm Still in Love With You album went platinum, staying at number one R&B for five weeks and peaked at number four pop.
