Let's Stay Together
â€œThe honey-voiced Green made some of the most visionary soul music of the Seventiesâ€ - Rolling Stone
Al Green was the first great soul singer of the 70s and arguably the last great Southern soul singer.
With his seductive singles for Hi Records in the early 70s, Green bridged the gap between deep soul and smooth Philadelphia soul. He incorporated elements of gospel, interjecting his performances with wild moans and wails, but his records were stylish, boasting immaculate productions that rolled along with a tight beat, sexy backing vocals and lush strings.
The distinctive Hi Records sound that the vocalist and producer Willie Mitchell developed made Al Green the most popular and influential soul singer of the early 70s, influencing not only his contemporaries, but also veterans like Marvin Gaye.
