Al Green

Biography

Al Green's extraordinary voice became known to the world through a string of legendary hits in the early 1970s, classics including "Tired of Being Alone," "Let's Stay Together," "I Can't Get Next to You," "I'm Still in Love With You," "Call Me," "Here I Am," "Let's Get Married" and "Love and Happiness." Recorded in Memphis with producer and arranger Willie Mitchell at Mitchell's Royal Recording Studios, those songs - and Green's falsetto screams, impassioned whispers, ecstatic cries and choked shouts - are etched into the minds of music fans everywhere.

Recently saw Al Green at Birmingham's Symphany Hall. Felt ripped off as Green was barely on for 60 mins when he suddenly went off stage never to return.My wife & I had paid £35 each for tickets & bought a orog. for £6 & were disgusted. We wn't be paying to see him again or buying any more of his CDs.(the actual performance was great!)
