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 1970s, influencing not only his contemporaries, but also veterans like
Marvin Gaye. Green was at the peak of his popularity when he suddenly decided to
join the ministry in the mid-'70s. At first, he continued to record secular
material, but by the '80s, he was concentrating solely on gospel. During the
late '80s and '90s, he occasionally returned to R&B, but he remained primarily a
religious performer for the rest of his career. Nevertheless, Green's classic
early '70s recordings retained their power and influence throughout the decades,
setting the standard for smooth soul.
"After topping the R&B and pop charts with Let's Stay Together, Green released his second LP of that year, one that was even more sensual than its predecessor. "Love and Happiness" is a slow-building masterpiece: His band provided the subtle groove; Green added a mountain of soul." - www.rollingstone.com
