Feel free to post up your favorites, I'll get the big one out of the way.
Another big one .... Soul Train woohoo!
Man that guy can SING.
He is absolutely brilliant! Love and Happiness baby!!
I really love the Belle album, particularly the title track. It's his first true gospel album, but has a loose, dreamy and peaceful vibe.
What a voice! I can't hear this song now without remembering the scene in Pulp Fiction that used it.
I have 14 albums from Al Green, and 130 songs in iTunes. Count me a fan.
We had the album growing up, but I'm exactly the same now. Ditto "Jungle Boogie" and the opening for "Use Me."
But yeah... dude can flat blow. Just moves in and out of that falsetto like it's nothing.
at my favorite bar, about every third song is an al green song.
A singular artist!
Happy Birthday, sir!
Regardless of your political views, this was a pretty cool moment for people of a certain age.
An awesome voice and classic tunes.
I've had the great good fortune to see the Reverend twice. First time in 2004, touring behind his album 'I Can't Stop'. Did all the hits, had a crack band behind him, worked so hard he literally had to be helped offstage. Loved it.
Saw him the next year at an outdoor show. He was in a strange mood and would stop the band in the middle of songs to do another one. Sang a lot of obscure songs and imitated some of his favorite singers. Loved it even more.
I saw Al in the early 2000s in Toronto, one of my favourite shows ever.
His two guitarists played matching white superstrats, at one point Al left the microphone behind, singing acapella and filling the hall with his acoustic voice. Transcendent.
I love Green's cover of this tune.
I had the privilege of seeing the Reverend on a tour where he and Etta James were the opening acts for B.B. King. Brilliant show all around, and Green was dressed to the nines -- gray suit, tie, and white gloves. He looked at the audience and said something like, "You're looking good tonight -- and I'm not looking too bad, either!"
WOW!! How cool to see Etta, BB and AG on the same bill. 3 of my all time favorite artists. If Delbert McClinton and/or Bonnie Raitt was on that same bill......Lordy, just take me home now!
