This is a wonderful film documenting a really interesting point in Al Green's career. The gospel performances are amazing even if you're not into the religious aspect of the music or the meaning behind the songs. The passion and skill in performance is just amazing. He's playing with a great band too. Not only that, but there's brilliant footage of Al Green looking back over how his career started, how he wrote and recorded his classic hits, and the best stuff for me was seeing and hearing him sit there with a guitar, and - as if it were the most normal thing in the world - perform amazing solo versions of great songs. This is an essential DVD for fans of Al Green, fans of soul music, fans of songwriting, of gospel, of music documentaries... it's great!
