    How good is his music ? Just heard the Bee Geez cover of how to mend a broken heart. Must get the double cd of his greatest hits on now as i love almost every track on it
    A good artist to play in the company of a lady

    Superb. Went to his tabernacle in Memphis once, though sadly as it was midweek it was locked.

    A bit cheesy I reckon. Always preferred Otis, Bill Withers or a bit of Marvin myself.

    If it’s a Glaswegian lady, play this…

    She’ll get the message. ๐Ÿ˜‰

    Was playing ‘you been making out okay’ earlier, not a massive fan but have a few tracks on playlists.

    brilliant.

    Went to his tabernacle in Memphis once

    I made a late Saturday night plan to do this the next morning. Unfortunately I was on Beale street & 10 pints down, the next morning there was no way I was going to church. Apparently I did dance around the hotel room to Love & Happiness; although i have no memory of that. ๐Ÿ˜†

    One of my faves, but gotta be in the mood (that’s not a track btw)

    Quite often see his albums going for buttons in petrol stations and at tils in music shops. Which is nice.

    Funny, I just added Al Green to my “must listen to more” list a couple of weeks ago.
    Any recommendations of a good album to start with?

    Ah, the Reverend Al Green, definitely a “later in the party” artist when I was younger and hoping for a bit of Nat King!

    ‘Let’s stay together’ is pretty good although it does tail off toward the end. Usually cheap as chips and does have a couple of classics on though. Looks good on the coffee table, reference for Nick Hornby and Good Will Hunting fans I suppose…

    Incredible singer, but too many lurve songs for me. Particularly like his version of this

    Is his singing better than his commentary?

    Busy man….

    Whoa whoa whoa. Is no one going to pick this up? Itโ€™s no a cover pal, they just recorded it for themselves later. Itโ€™s a beegee original. Just like islands in the stream.

    I know its a bee gee original it may be the way i worded it, aint it funny how time slips away an original by willie nelson but like the bee gee song Al does it so much better

    seen him at glastonbury, was class.

    Jeez, I thought for a minute heโ€™d died! You ****!

    IMHO the Rev is awesome. Iโ€™ve a bucketload of his albums. Iโ€™m still in love with you being my favourite.

    The ping-ping in simply beautiful is sublime.

    His 15 minute version of beware is pure class too.

    The Willie Mitchell house band display the less is more thing to perfection.

    Phew, thought this was a RIP thread.

    ‘Call Me’ is the classic IMO, with a bit of country and gospel among the soul.

    I opened this in dread too.

    Put Al on the stereo and the Mrs goes all googly, and I must admit I do a bit too ๐Ÿ™‚

    Think about what he (Otis) achieved, then put it in the context of someone that was dead at the age of 26.
    Phenomenal.
    See also Tammi Terrell who recorded amazing duets with Marvin Gaye. Dead at 24.

    Such talent in such a short space of time.

    And it’s always been said that there is no answer to the question; what is your favourite song?.
    Well I can personally answer it:
