Al Green's 1993 European album Don't Look Back contains seven songs produced by David Steele and Andy Cox (of Fine Young Cannibals), four by Arthur Baker, and two by Terry Manning. Five of the Steele and Cox tracks, three of the Baker, and none of the Manning were recycled for the belated U.S. release, Your Heart's in Good Hands. Supplementing the eight older numbers are two new songs, the title tune produced by Narada Michael Walden and the song "Could This Be Love," written and produced by Jodeci's DeVante Swing. Most of these producers deny Green the freedom he needs to improvise the quirky, special moments he brings to his best work. Only Baker seems to understand what Green needs, but their small triumphs are enough to lend hope that Green may have another great album in him yet. --Geoffrey Himes

Green's most satisfying album

"I certainly never expected that Green would produce an album that would top his earlier work, superb as much of it was. But I was more than pleasantly surprised. Several of the songs on this release are as good as his best and the album as a whole is the most solid he has ever created. There is not a weak moment or an inferior cut."
Second time buying this cd

"I bought this cd in 1998, and ended up losing it years later. However, after buying Lay it Down, I knew that I had to buy this again. I've had dozens of Al Green cds, and tapes, and literally this is one of my favorite. I'm an avid listener."
The door is NOW open for Al Green!

"This is a good CD which sets the stage for the Reverends next release. I've been a devoted fan of Al's Green's since the release of "BACK UP TRAIN" in 1967. And let me tell you this: This album will do for Al Green what "GET'S NEXT TO YOU" and "GREEN IS BLUES" did for him in '71 and '72, and we all know (or should know) what happened after that?! So watch out!! The door is now open, WIDE open. Al Green is about to come through as he did in 1972 and the years that followed; and of coarse I'll be waiting. I wouldn't miss this one for the world!! With "this" CD, I've at least assured myself of a front row seat."
