Where do I start, maybe with World's Greatest Living Soul Singer - World's Worst Concert.
Come on Al, two things 1. We are all devotees of your's, so don't patronize us. 2. We know the concert is in LA and don't telling every two minutes.
The whole beauty of Al's style and delivery is his perfect timing. Cool, chill and soulful, whereas this gig was like bad karaoke. Stop singing cameos of Otis, Marvin, Four Tops and Temps...you have 50 classics of you own. Hey, and trying singing them, not the first two words of a few lines while we are supposed to sing the rest. As for doing speeded up renditions of Love & Happiness and Let's Stay Together that is just sacrilege.
Listening to the I'm Still In Love With You album on the drive up was more fun...
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.”
