Al Green

This funny alteration of a Walgreen’s sign is a good starting point to talk about Al Green. I prefer the earlier uptempo Al Green to the ballads that were the core of his success. “I’m So Tired of Being Alone” was the fifth single off Gets Next to You, his second Hi album (and my favorite of the ones I have heard). It became the blueprint for his later popular records. I’d rather listen to this album.
