4.0 out of 5 stars Provides His Primary Hi Records Hit Singles January 11, 2012
Format:Audio CD
On his way to being inducted into the R&R Hall Of Fame (1995), Albert Green (born April 13, 1946 in Forrest City, Arkansas), and known professionally as simply Al Green, contributed some 25 albums to the music scene for a variety of labels (Hot Line, Bell, Hi. Myrrh, A&M, Arrival, Word/Epic, RCA, MCA) singing everything from Gospel to Blues to Soul to Pop/R&R and even Country. Along the way he also racked up 32 R&B hit singles, 22 of which crossed over to the more lucrative Billboard Pop Hot 100 (and its Bubble Under section) and Adult Contemporary (AC) listings.

Like many of his contemporaries, he started out singing gospel, in his case as part of the Greene Brothers before relocating to Grand Rapids, Michigan in 1959 where he landed with the Fargo label in 1960 at the tender age of 14. In 1964 he joined The Creations and remained with that group through to 1967, and from 1967 into 1968 became part of The Soul Mates with brother Robert and Lee Virgins. It was while billed as Al Greene & The Soul Mate's (sic) that he scored his first hit single when Back Up Train hit # 5 R&B/# 41 Hot 100 early in 1968 b/w Don't Leave Me on Hot Line 15000. That would be their only hit there, and unfortunately it's not included.

Also omitted are his first four hits registered for his new label, Hi Records in 1970/71, under the production of Willie Mitchell (who would perform the same duties right through to 1977): You Say It (# 28 R&B in February 1970 - Hi 2171); Right Now, Right Now (# 23 R&B in July 2970 - Hi 2177); I Can't Get Next To You (# 11 R&B/# 60 Pop Hot 100 in Nov/Dec 1970 - Hi 2182; and Driving Wheel (# 46 R&B/# 115 Hot 100 Bubble Under in March 1971 - Hi 2188).
