"Remember the 70s: Greatest Hits Live"
Hailing from a background steeped in Gospel, Al Green came onto
the scene in the early 1970s. A consistent hit maker and the
embodiment of all that is both holy and secular, Green's career
marked a popular return to grassroots soul music. The simple
arrangements put the musical focus squarely on Green's silky
cries, sensuous moans and breathtaking falsetto. In the late '70s
a series of events led Green to reevaluate his career and his
faith, and he decided to leave the world of secular music. He
turned to preaching and became an ordained pastor. With a few
exceptions, Green's music has since become hymn-related and
formulaic. But hits like "Let's Stay Together" and a reworked "How
Can You Mend a Broken Heart" helped define pure soul music.
