What Makes the World Go 'Round? Review

by Stephen Thomas Erlewine

A Hear Music release available through Starbucks stores, What Makes the World Go 'Round? is a good collection of 16 basics from Al Green's classic Hi recordings from the '70s. Almost all of his staples are here -- "Tired of Being Alone," "I Can't Get Next to You," "Love and Happiness," "Here I Am," "Take Me to the River," "Let's Stay Together" -- and the rest of the CD is expertly chosen. Then again, it's hard to go wrong with prime Al Green, as this very enjoyable sampler once again makes clear.
