Al Green's Greatest Hitsby Al Green
Upon its original release in 1975, Al Green's Greatest Hits pretty much summed up everything about Green, containing his ten biggest hits up to that point. A few years later, it was followed by a second volume, which contained hit singles that had charted since the release of the first collection. In 1995, The Right Stuff reissued Al Green's Greatest Hits, adding five of the highlights from the second volume of greatest hits as bonus tracks. The result was a definitive single-disc compilation, featuring 15 of Green's absolute best songs, including "Tired of Being Alone," "Let's Stay Together," "I'm Still in Love With You," "Call Me," "Here I Am," "Sha-La-La (Make Me Happy)," and "L-O-V-E (Love)." The original version of Greatest Hits was great, but the revision made it nearly perfect.

I got the limited edition green vinyl today and I can't stop playing it! It looks extremely cool on a green vinyl and it sounds amazing, really impressive issue! Definitely one of the coolest things in my collection.
Every song on this cd is one that you heard on the radio. This is a excellent collection compliled on one cd. This has become my favorite cd.
If you know what great music is, I totally recommend that you go out and get this CD!!! Very worth it!!
Al green is simply one of the legends of soul and this album summarizes his best songs.
NEXT TO JESUS CHRIST OUR SAVIOR, AL IS THE GREATEST OF ALL TIME. I HAVEN'T MET ANOTHER ARTIST THAT CAN GET CLOSE TO AL, I'M 36 YEARS OLD AND AL HAS MADE MANY WONDERFUL DAYS IN OUR HOUSEHOLD AS A YOUNG CHILD AND I THANK MY PARENTS FOR KNOWING WHO TO LISTEN TO SO THAT I CAN CARRY ON THE LEGEND
The sublimely unique and timeless productions of Willie Mitchell at Hi Records, all with marvelous musicianship, and one amazing voice made Mr. Al Green demand the title of The Last Great Soul Singer. A greatest hits collection is meant to be just that. Not overkill, but more of a introductory album to turn people on, so they in turn, dive into the vaults to get all they can. In that sense, this is the best greatest hits package I have ever seen. There's only one disappointing omission in ''Take Me To the River''. The marvelous musicianship comes courtesy of the unequaled Memphis Horns of Stax Records (Otis Redding, Sam & Dave) fame. The Hi rhythm section consisted of three brothers, Charles Hodges on organ, Leroy Hodges on bass, and Mabon ''Teenie'' Hodges on guitar. And these gentlemen play like brothers. The telepathic interplay between these wonderful ''studio rats'' is rivaled only by cross town session legends, the mighty Stax house band, Booker T. & the MGs. The secret ingredient of these soul masterpieces may be in fact, Booker T. & the MGs' drummer, Al Jackson, Jr., whose infectious grooves are utterly contagious. Nowhere does this masterful combination gel better than on ''Love and Happiness'', co-written by Green and guitarist, Teenie Hodges. All four musicians are so perfect, yet so soulful, the horn arrangements are spectacular, and let's not forget, the last great soul singer. There are also bonus tracks, including ''Belle'', an admittingly touching and inspiring song, where Green's conscience wavers between a woman, ''Belle'', and God. One can't help but draw the metaphors in the song to Green soon after going from ''Here I am, baby'' to ''Here I am, Lord.'' This is a must have collection.
This album includes some of the best R and B in the world with hits like 'I'm still in love with you','Let's stay together','Look what you've done for me' and 'Here I am.' So many more other classics are included with out a doubt my favorit singer.
This CD is everything music should be about: THE REAL
I WAS IN THE MOVIE WITH MY BOY FRIEND AND THEY PLAYED ABOUT THREE SONGS FROM THE OLD SCHOOL BY AL GREEN. AND IT REALLY MADE OUR DAY.
