Al Green

Greatest Hits: The Best Of Al Green

Fat Possum / Hi Records



2CD

Released: 24th Nov 2014

£6.99


Al Green was the first great soul singer of the '70s & 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 & smooth Philadelphia soul. He incorporated elements of gospel, interjecting his performances with wild moans & wails, but his records were stylish, boasting immaculate productions that rolled along with a tight beat, sexy backing vocals, & lush strings. The distinctive Hi Records sound that the vocalist & producer Willie Mitchell developed made Al Green the most popular & influential soul singer of the early '70s, influencing not only his contemporaries, but also veterans like Marvin Gaye.
