Let's Stay Together is a 1972 album by the soul singer Al Green, and is the follow-up to his moderate success Al Green Gets Next to You. It was recorded at Royal Recording Studio, 1320 S. Lauderdale, in Memphis and was a success, peaking at number eight on the pop albums chart and became the first of six albums to peak at number-one on the soul album chart (where it claimed the position for ten weeks)
The title track of Let's Stay Together is a karaoke standard and an "American Idol" joke. Surprise: it got there by being one of the best-sung hits of the 70s. Virtually everyone who's covered it has surrendered to the temptation to oversing it; the genius of Green's performance is that he's murmuring it to the person on the next pillow, not declaiming it for the neighbors to bear witness. Green wasn't yet firing on all cylinders as a songwriter, but even the album's lesser songs get spectacular performances. As with his entire pre-gospel career, Jesus.
Love Al Green and love this album. Album and sleeve were in perfect condition. No scratches, bends or warping.

Al Green’s first four albums are the beginning of the truly sublime rhythm-and-blues story of the 1970s: It’s a story about one of the most soulful voices in pop history - a rough yet refined tenor - combined with a mystically tight Memphis studio band. For generations of inheritors (from Jodeci to U2) and lovers, Green, producer Willie Mitchell and the five-man Hi Records house band set the benchmark for soul. A deliberate version of the Box Tops’ The Letter is the album’s highlight; avoiding their music’s usual bounce, Green and Mitchell explore a slightly dangerous urban variant of older country blues. On 1971’s Gets Next to You and 1972’s Let’s Stay Together and I’m Still in Love With You, the Red Sea parts. Green’s singing and the band’s arrangements act in thrilling concert, offering a controlled abandon that you don’t often hear this side of, say, Miles Davis and Gil Evans.

Commercially, this was where Green really got the ball rolling. Not only did it head to No. 8 in the pop charts, it lasted 10 weeks at the top of the Soul Album charts. Recorded in the Royal Recording Studio, Memphis, Let’s Stay Together is an album of relentless quality. The title track, Let’s Stay Together, is arguably one of Green’s most reputable songs. To see this pain, to feel it, you can’t help but listen to this album and feel closer to Green after. I’m Still In Love With You. Of Green’s albums, this one’s a little harder-hitting, a little funkier and a little rougher round the edges (in all the best ways). The Hodges brothers are a prominent feature on this album and are watertight, laying concrete foundations for Green to build his lyrical house upon. Charles Hodges is utterly relentless on his signature Hammond Organ, complementing the house brass repeatedly.
