AL GREEN and the words SOUL MUSIC go hand in hand his name is linked with such classic song s such as LETS STAY TOGETHER,& TIRED OF BEING ALONE. GREEN was born April 13th 1946 and started performing at the early age of 10 he would later form a group called Al Green & the creations. Later he would meet WILLIE MICHELL who would sign him to his record label Hi Records 1n 1969.This would be the beginning of what most soul lovers would call a beautiful friendship between the two. Some of the song above would be released and AL GREEN,S name would go down in soul music and popular music history as a LEGEND . On October 18, 1974, Mary Woodson, a girlfriend of Green's, assaulted him before killing herself at his Memphis home. Although she was already married, Woodson reportedly became upset when Green refused to marry her. At some point during the evening, Woodson doused Green with a pan of boiling hot grits while he was showering causing third-degree burns on Green's back, stomach and arms. Woodson then shot herself with Green's gun. This would signal greens return to his faith and although he would make some returns on record he hadn’t fully captured the heights of previous heights . Yet in the gospel world the man could do know wrong and still continues to tour and he has been inducted into the GOSPEL MUSIC HALL OF FAME .In 2008 AL GREEN released the album LAY IT DOWN(2008) feat the JOHN LEGEND ,CORINNE BAILEY RAE and ANTHONY HAMILTON. GREEN set a benchmark for soul music and music in general, and I don’t think that’s what he set out to do .He was just doing is own thing. LAY IT DOWN in my book is another one of those album,s the stand out track being TAKE YOUR TIME this is a killer track .So if you are a true lover of soul music this should hit you in that god spot .BUY IT!!!
lay it down
lets stay together
