    Albert "Al" Greene (born April 13, 1946), often known as The Reverend Al Green, is an American singer best known for recording a series of soul hit singles in the early 1970s, including "Take Me to the River", "Tired of Being Alone", "I'm Still in Love with You", "Love and Happiness" and his signature song, "Let's Stay Together". Inducted to the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame in 1995, Green was referred to on the museum's site as being "one of the most gifted purveyors of soul music". He has also been referred to as "The Last of the Great Soul Singers".

    Listening to Gets Next to You for the first time and the consensus isn't wrong that this is firmly within his run of classics. "Tired of Being Alone" is obviously as amazing as it's cracked up to be, but "Can't Get Next to You" is just as great.

    I grew up listening to Al Green and The Stylistics. If you haven't checked them out you should. Russell Thompkins, Jr. is the man.

    I own Rock'n'Roll Baby. Pretty great record. Love some of that Philly Soul. Make a thread for them!

    Never listened to Al Green much before but gonna give some of his albums a spin today. I think I'm going to start with Let's Stay Together.

    That one is very solid but Call Me (his masterpiece) and I'm Still in Love with You are even better
