09/12/2020: “Simply Beautiful” by Al Green

This soul track is so powerful. The chord changes are visceral, and the singing is just magnificent.

The mastering/mixdown is quite intense in the latter half of the track. Not sure what happened there, but it doesn’t spoil the tune.

It’s such a mellow song. If it was any more romantic, they’d have to ban it from radio to stop Al Green seducing half the country!

Sampled by Kanye and G-Unit, covered by Queen Latifah, the original was released in 1972 on I’m Still in Love with You.
