Al Green – Take Me To The River

Most people know “Take Me To The River” as a Talking Heads song. It was actually written by Al Green and Teenie Hodges for Al Green’s 1974 album Al Green Explores Your Mind. The song was not released as an Al Green single, but passed off to Syl Johnson who brought it up to #48 on the US Hot 100 chart in 1975. The Talking Heads didn’t cover “Take Me To The River” until their 1978 album – More Songs About Buildings and Food.

Here is the Al Green version:

    I do not know whether it’s just me or if perhaps everybody
    else experiencing issues with your site. It seems like
    several of the written text with your posts are running off the screen. Can another individual please
    comment and tell me if this sounds like happening for them
    too? This may be described as a problem with
    my internet browser because I’ve had this happen previously.
    Thanks
