Al Green's Greatest Hits [Fat Possum]

( 3 )

Editorial Reviews

All Music Guide - Steve Leggett
This set is a straight reissue, cover art and all, of 1975's Al Green's Greatest Hits LP, which collected his ten biggest singles. A second volume followed, and for the 1995 CD edition of Greatest Hits, five of the songs from the second volume were tacked on, improving its length and value and essentially making this issue irrelevant, although the songs here are undeniably great and Green, as always, sings like God's favorite angel sent back to earth.

    Perfect Package for Al Green's Hits

    All the best known Rev. Green songs are here, along with several lesser known, but still enjoyable, selections. This is must-have music for rock and rhythm and blues fans. You will find yourself trying to sing along.
