Description

The Reverend Al Green’s extraordinary voice became known to the world through a string of legendary hits in the early 1970s, classics including “Tired of Being Alone,” “Let’s Stay Together,” “I Can’t Get Next to You,” “I’m Still in Love With You,” “Call Me” and “Love and Happiness.” 

Green bridged the gap between smooth Philadelphia soul and gospel.  In the mid-‘70s, he joined the ministry and by the ‘80s, was solely a gospel performer.  Green returned to soul in the early ‘90s and has since joined Blue Note Records.  His latest album, Lay It Down_, garnered two Grammy awards and had Green collaborating with younger stars, including the Roots’ ?uestlove, who produced the record.  Spin _said of the release, Lay It Down (with tasty guest spots from John Legend, Anthony Hamilton, and Corinne Bailey Rae) makes it clear that Green’s devotion to the primacy of his music’s groove has only deepened with age.”
