I have been an Al Green fan since the early 70's. I fell in love with him and his music back then and I'm still in love with him. (smile) I saw him perform when I was a teenager and was fortunate to see him a couple of years ago. He's still great. I used to listen to his albums and would play each and every song on one side and then flip it over and play everything on the other side. I love the fact that he's still performing and it's really cool to hear him partner with southern soul artists like Lamorris Williams (see my posts dated 2/6/2012 and 4/2/2012). The song "Simply Beautiful" was just that - simply beautiful. Here's Al Green's version and then Willie Clayton's remake of it. Willie did a really good job but in my opinion, Al Green is and always will be the best. Tell me what you think.
I'm a southern girl who loves southern soul music. I also love r&b, music from the 60s and 70s, Al Green, Prince, and the list goes on and on. Don't forget my favorites like Johnnie Taylor, Tyrone Davis, T.K. Soul, Willie Clayton, O. B. Buchana, Betty Wright, Denise LaSalle, O. V. Wright, and wow, the list is endless!
I also like to see what's going on around the country.
