Al Green: Higher Plane (Hi/PRT)

Andy Gill, New Musical Express, 3 April 1982

OH, HAPPY man...You can tell Al Green is truly saved from a quick glance at the cover, from the way his Daz-white shirt blue-airbrushes its way over half his suit and waistcoat too, a radiant glow of Truth and Light straight from – yes, 'fraid so! – straight from the heart. And from the way he performs the benediction (or whatever it is) with such beguiling glee on the back. Oh, yes. A Happy Man.
