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).

I didn't pay too much attention to Al Green back in the day... had a couple of his 45s, that's it. Couple years back a new oldies station started up in this area, and became very popular because they play more than just the big hits: they also play songs and/or artists that seem to have been overlooked. I began hearing some Al Green songs I hadn't heard in years and I was really enjoying them. Enough to consider purchasing a hits CD. This has all 13 of his pop top 40 singles from his 1971-1976 heyday, so it was clearly the best choice. 5 more songs round out the CD, and of them, only his take on "I Say a Little Prayer" missed the mark with me. "How Can You Mend a Broken Heart" is wonderful. The hits speak for themselves of course, and I think the sound quality is great. Recommended.

The Very Best of Al Green is an excellent CD. I remembered some of the songs from my earlier life. When I listened to his songs, I realized that I knew a lot more songs. It has been so pleasurable to listen to these songs. I am glad to own this CD.Very Best of Al Green

I'm not a music expert, but I do love and enjoy good music. This CD has only one or two songs I don't care for, but the rest are fantastic and I love to sing along with them in my car. It's a great way to make the miles go by and I arrive at my destinations with a smile on my face and feeling good! Thank you, Al Green, I am a fan!!

This is the best Al Green collection available. His greatest hits are on this CD collection and not just one or two good songs. I recommend this CD for those of us who love Al Green. Those of you who do not know his music and like listening to soulful romantic songs will love this CD.
