3 of 3 people found the following review helpful By Reginald D. Garrard VINE VOICE on April 4, 2005
Format: Audio CD
After reviewing Al Green's last three studio albums, I decided to rummage through my "archives" and look at earlier releases by the singer that I own. To my surprise, I had never critiqued 1987's "Soul Survivor," a hodgepodge of traditional, contemporary gospel, and pop "message" songs, made during the time that Green was first asserting himself as a minister.

While the title cut and "Everything's Gonna Be Alright" date themselves, due to 80's production values, the renditions of more traditional fare, like "Yield Not to Temptation," "Jesus Will Fix It," and "23rd Psalm," show the singer at his vocal best. These songs are staples of many a church choir or gospel quartet and fans of that style of singing will be most appreciative of Green's interpretations, respectively.

However, the singer really ascends into spiritual heaven with two covers: "He Ain't Heavy" and "You've Got a Friend," featuring a soul-stirring organ and vocal accompaniment from legendary keyboardist Billy Preston. This one song hints at what could have been if the two artists had decided to do a full-blown album of duets.

By the time of this album's original release, Al Green had long since abandoned R&B music and devoted himself exclusively to Gospel but this album was contemporary enough to appeal to a mainstream R&B audience and the uplifting, gorgeous and hopeful "Everything's Gonna Be Alright" became a major hit on both the Gospel and R&B charts. Al Green was always one of those artists who could make great music regardless of what genre he was covering and this album is definitely one that any Al Green fan will enjoy.

This cd is more comtemporary gospel. If you like very old fashion gospel, this wouldn't be a good cd for you. But the sound is very well recorded. Thumbs up!

This is a wonderful gospel soul CD. If you grew up in the '70's listening to Al Green, you'll love this CD. I listen to it over and over.
