Along with Explores Your Mind and 1975's Al Green Is Love, a significant story is told of passionate love for God and loved ones, a ribbon binding them with respective singles Soon As I Get Home (herein), The Love Sermon (1975), and Take Me to the River (1974). And, no better a lead track has there been for a vision, this being the case of Glory, Glory, as Green begins the uplifting story of love and joy, which thanks God for the love he has found. Thats The Way It Is has a funky beat with interesting electric guitar and organ usage. In There's No Way, Al poignantly sings of an everlasting, true love, about which he would change nothing, wishing to never leave it behind.

Mitchell presented Green with the bare bones of a track, which the singer didn’t care for. Mitchell pressed him to write lyrics to it, but Green believed this was a ruse to make him keener to record and release the song because he would then earn writing royalties. Green relented; he claims he wrote the lyric in five minutes but spent a quarter of an hour in the studio lobby, just so Mitchell would think he’d taken it seriously. My whole goal was this has to be a follow-up to The Belle Album. There’d been the occasional highpoint in Green’s post-Belle discography, not least the two albums he made in the early years of the 21st century after reuniting with Mitchell, but Lay It Down fulfilled Questlove’s ambition. Co-producer James Poyser and Questlove approached the task determined to honour Green’s 1970s work without attempting to just simulate the sound.
