Reseña de álbum

Al Green has sold some 20 million records, been named to the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame, and been given a Lifetime Achievement Award by BET, among other honors, and most of that has stemmed from his secular pop career and the smooth, soulful Hi Records sound he helped build with producer Willie Mitchell in the 1970s. But he’s also been elected to the Gospel Music Association Hall of Fame, and if Green's fame largely rests with pop hits like “Let’s Stay Together” and “Tired of Being Alone,” his perceived personal calling has always been gospel, and as this well-chosen and sequenced selection of some of his best non-secular sides from the 1980s shows, he’s a singer’s singer no matter what the genre — given that Green's themes have always been about the need for love and respect, exactly who he addresses the song to starts to feel like a mere detail.

Con sus seductores singles para Hi Records a principios de los 70, construyó un puente entre el deep soul y el smooth soul de Filadelfia. Incorporó elementos del gospel, agregó a sus interpretaciones salvajes gemidos y lamentos, pero sus discos eran plenos de estilo, alardeaban con inmaculadas producciones que rodaban sobre un ritmo tenso, coros sensuales y lujosas cuerdas. El reconocible estilo...
