Al Green – How Can You Mend A Broken Heart?

I was talking about growing up in the 90’s recently and Take That came up and I mentioned how inferior I thought their cover of the Bee Gees classic How Deep Is Your Love was. I mean, it’s tough to match a band as gloriously talented as the brothers Gibb.

However, I think The Reverend Al Green just about manages it here. He dials up the smoothness to a level that I find rather hard to resist. The original version is okay but I probably prefer their more up tempo tunes.
