>Al Green — Nothing Takes The Place Of You


>This is one of those songs I love dearly — no matter who sings it. My favorite version is probably William Bell’s. His version stays very close to the original, written by Toussaint McCall in 1967. In fact both sound a little alike. William’s voice, though, has no rough edges whatsoever — it is smooth and polished to perfection. And of course as soon as Al Green gets his hands on it, he leaves his unmistakable stamp on the song.
Timi Yuro and Johnny Adams also delivered some outstanding covers of this classic tune.
