424 – Al Green – Tired Of Being Alone (1971)
Written by Al Green
Produced by Willie Mitchell
Label – Decca

This outstanding single had been lying in the vaults for three years awaiting a finishing mix that was worthy of Green’s playful croon. The sharp horn hits and lean guitar lines complement Al’s falsetto and paved the way for many vocal mimic’s from the rest of the decade and beyond.
