Ladies and Gentlemen, we’re pleased to announce that at the age of 74, Al Green has still got it.
On “Before the Next Teardrop Falls,” Al invokes the same heavy heartfelt emotions with his unique yet comforting voice that we all know so well. He delivers a soulful cover of Freddy Fender’s 70s hit that is as smooth as butter from the horns down to the drum snare, and it does not conform to a new sound without ever sounding dated.
If you’re like us and grew up listening to Al Green in your parents car, then this song is right for you. If not, then this is probably still right for you.
Where to Listen: Dinner Party, Relaxing at Home, On a Walk
Vibe: Emotional, Nostalgic, Smooth
Genre: Soul RnB
