CD Reviews

Very truthfull of life, peaceful, inspirational, excellent
Maria Davidson ( | Campbell River, Canada | 11/10/1999
(5 out of 5 stars)

"This album my husband & I have loved since the 70's. Never before have I enjoyed an album from start to finish as much. A true classic example of what life has to offer, & how to enjoy it. Al Green shares the same passion in my opinion, another artist we enjoy. This album touches on so many things, gangs, family, God, appreciating what we have, even inspiring us to keep going. I have introduced this artist with this album to friends, & they all seem to agree, if they at all know how to "Be thankful for what "they" got" Too bad he doesn't record any longer. Our thanks to William for sharing this collection,that we have enjoyed."
NOT Thankful for What I Got

"This is not the version of "Be Thankful for What You Got" that you looking for.
Trust Me.
They are very clever they put two versions on this CD,
and neither one was original. (WHY I ask myself!)
If ya like disco, then buy this version.
If you looking for the REAL classic version, its available on
Amazon just keep looking and listen to the sample and
read the follow up reviews.

(Note: The other review on here is deceptive)"
Be Thankful.... Discofied??? No Thanks

"William DeVaughn's seminal work was Be thankful for What You Got (the main reason for buying this CD). It was a double platinum (2 million) best seller, in 1974, and deservedly so for its message of pride no matter who you are and what you have (or may not have). THIS version (x2) is some cheap disco remix of the original, carrying nothing of its soulful depth of feeling. Buy the CD with Mr DeVaughn's photo on the cover. It is available on Amazon for a fraction of the price of these imports. It has the original versions of his works, and you will then Be Thankful For What You Got.
