Al Green's extraordinary voice became known to the world through a string of legendary hits in the early 1970's, classics including "Tired of Being Alone," "Let's Stay Together," "I Can't Get Next to You" and "I'm Still in Love With You." Recorded in Memphis with producer and arranger Willie Mitchell at Mitchell's Royal Recording Studios, those songs and Green's falsetto screams, impassioned whispers, ecstatic cries and choked shouts - are etched into the minds of music fans everywhere.
Green and Mitchell have collaborated over the years to shape a sound that defines its own place in pop and R&B music. They recorded eight albums that sold over 20 million copies worldwide, working together until 1976. At that time, Green changed his focus to gospel music, founding his own congregation in Memphis and recording a series of albums that have earned him eight Grammys in gospel categories.
In 2003, Green's original manager suggested that he hit the studios once more and together, he and Mitchell worked to again capture the unique sound they created three decades ago - a perfect blend of Memphis soul, gospel, blues and early rock & roll. To do so, Green returned to Mitchell's Royal Studios to sing in the same vocal booth, on the same microphone and with many of the same stellar musicians who played on the original Hi Records sessions.
