Al Green - The Very Best Of Al Green download album

Al Green's Greatest Hits is a 1975 greatest hits release by soul singer Al Green. In 2003, the album was ranked number 52 on Rolling Stone magazine's list of the 500 greatest albums of all time. The compilation has consistently ranked as one of the best executed 'greatest hits' albums in history.

Albert Leornes Greene (born April 13, 1946), often known as The Reverend Al Green, is an American singer, songwriter and record producer, best known for recording a series of soul hit singles in the early 1970s, including "Take Me to the River", "Tired of Being Alone", "I'm Still in Love with You", "Love and Happiness", and his signature song, "Let's Stay Together".

The closing track on Green’s 1973 album Livin’ for You is disconcerting and unsettling, though it appears mellifluous and warm. If Green’s best songs explore the tug of war between the soul and the flesh, Beware seems to show the consummate lover warning us his motives may not be honourable. You can choose to hear the song as just another come-on, or you can hear it as the opposite – a call to be on the alert for people who might manipulate you for their own ends. To these ears, the very best thing Green ever did, Take Me to the River seems to occupy an odd place in the singer’s affections. He used its title for his autobiography in 2000, so clearly sees its importance. In the eyes of the fans of Al Green, the last Al Green record was in 1977, drummer, producer and Roots bandleader Questlove told me in 2008. You know, not to negate the 17 that came between 1977 and 2005 – but they don’t count.
