Product Description

Product Description

Al Green was the first great soul singer of the 70s and arguably the last great Southern soul singer.

With his seductive singles for Hi Records in the early 70s, Green bridged the gap between deep soul and smooth Philadelphia soul. He incorporated elements of gospel, interjecting his performances with wild moans and wails, but his records were stylish, boasting immaculate productions that rolled along with a tight beat, sexy backing vocals and lush strings.

The distinctive Hi Records sound that the vocalist and producer Willie Mitchell developed made Al Green the most popular and influential soul singer of the early 70s, influencing not only his contemporaries, but also veterans like Marvin Gaye. Green was at the peak of his popularity when he suddenly decided to join the ministry in the mid 70s. At first, he continued to record secular material, but by the 80s he was concentrating soley on gospel.

During the late 80s and 90s he occasionally returned to R&B but he remained primarily a religious performer for the rest of his career. Nevertheless, Green's classic early 70s recordings retained their power and influences throughout the decades, setting the standard for smooth soul.

5.0 out of 5 stars Al Green on Vinyl 15 Dec 2012
By Manny 760 - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Vinyl|Verified Purchase
I just received my Al Green Greatest hits Vinyl from UPS. I was really impressed to see that the record is pressed on a 180 gram vinyl plate and it sounds amazing! Not much needs to be said about his music except that it is great... if you are an Al Green fan then you know that there is not one track that you would not like. If you don't know who Al Green is then this album will make you a fan of his music.

5.0 out of 5 stars Loved... 2 Jan 2013
By Gloria L. Few - Published on Amazon.com

I remember having this album as a young person. I couldn't wait to tear it open the day I received. (Great shipping Amazon, BTW). Tearing the package open and playing this album at ignorant levels for the myself and neighbors, I was totally not disappointed. I missed the quality from the album and this album is of great quality.

Not to mention Al Green's vocal quality. As I was listening, I reflected that one of the things I enjoyed about the 70s music itself is displayed in full on this album. I could hear and feel the violins... every instrument actually. Quality work and quality recording. Definitely a great investment.

5.0 out of 5 stars A Greatest Hits album that actually delivers 14 May 2014
By Ryan Manzer - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Vinyl|Verified Purchase
I will start of by saying, I do feel like a little bit of a schmuck for buying a greatest hits album. But when it is THIS greatest hits album, you get over that feeling real quick.

These tracks are Al Green at the height of his powers. What is more, all these recordings were made (I think) during a similar period in Al Green's career which means he had the same backing band the entire time. This avoids the problem some Greatest Hits albums have of sounding disjointed or having a few songs that just seem out of place. Listening to this album straight through, it sounds like it could have been a single recording session. This is simply an exceptional collection of great songs that have the flow and style of a single album. Worth not only every penny I paid, but also the secret shame of buying a greatest hits album.
