Green began exploring country music with this album by performing a startling version of Kris Kristofferson's "For the Good Times," as well as a wonderful, slow reinterpretation of Roy Orbison's "Oh Pretty.
The album's centerpiece is a six-minute-plus cover of the Bee Gees' ballad "How Can You Mend a Broken Heart", on which his vocal is so light and flexible it seems to be fluttering in the breeze coming off the drums. The band's arrangements are a master class in getting out of the way of the groove- "Love and Happiness" is all headroom and negative space, and the drum break at the top of "I'm Glad You're Mine" is as understated as funk gets.
This is what they are: I’m Still in Love with You opens the album with one of Green’s more extraordinary vocals. The line, I’. rapped up in your love, delivered twice, is sung high, almost disappearing at the end of his range, and yet enveloping - the perfect vocal equivalent of being hugged tightly in someone’s arms. He stretches the word heaven and it shimmers or he dips his voice down low at the end of a line as if to insinuate it into every possible corner of the song. Mitchell provides a texture in his production that is the perfect complement to Green’s singing while establishing its own richness but avoids calling attention to itself with those hey-hey-aren’t-I-hot touches so many big-time producers love to indulge themselves with.
