I never thought I would be an al green fan. I had him all wrong. Because he's not straight funk I made a mistake. Picked the vinyl up for next to nothing and the sound is wonderful. Cool as hell, really. Laid back, Sunday morning style. So glad I took a punt as I wouldn't have ever gotten round to hearing it on spotify. Think I gave it two seconds two years ago via spotify and as I didn't hear full on funk I switched it off. Lowest rated song on here is funny how time slips away, ha, serious? This album is cool as fuck, maybe not straight funk but funky as hell in a smooth cool chilled groove stylee. If its good enough for ghostface to rhyme over, then it's ok. I'm gonna flip this over to the start and get a beer. Almost good enough to believe Jesus is actually waiting.

This album is criminally underrated here on BEA. Show Al Green - one of the greatest singers and a soul music genius - some love!

Soul setentero de tempo suave, en una colección de temas cortados por un patrón rítmico y melódico muy homogéneo, al servicio de una voz privilegiada, como la de Green. Una propuesta de buen nivel.

Strong soul record from the brilliant Al Green. An enjoyable listen from start to finish, and superb songs in, stand up, here I am, and the title track. Classic.

A beautiful soulful album every track is good only weakness is "I'm So Lonesome..." I still rate the 2 albums that preceded this as better all round albums.

"Jesus Is Waiting" indeed. Naked, on the bed. Glorious closer to a very good album.

The brother was as smooth as velvet cheese. Who could make a song about Jesus so fly!

I love Al Green and Romanelli sums it up perfectly...After "Love and Happiness", "Here I am" and "call me' are my fav Al Green songs. He is the greatest soul singer of the last 40 years.

One of the great Al Green albums. Maybe the greatest soul singer ever, Call Me is a stunning album from a stunning voice. Every track is golden. The 2 cover tunes are from Hank Williams and Willie Nelson, and Green proves that great soul singers can do magic with country music.

The last track, "Jesus Is Waiting", is a foreshadowing of Green's switch to gospel music, which happened not long after this album. This is a must have, a true soul classic.
