I'm Still in Love with You

Al Green

Song Review by Ed Hogan

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.
