Al Green, Greatest Hits
Label: Hi Records / Fat Possum

I remember it the way you remember any milestone: first kiss, first apartment, first Al Green record. I was about 15, in the kitchen with my mother and a visiting aunt, when Mom put on a CD that stopped me in my tracks. An impossibly elegant southern R&B groove — light-fingered guitar, quick, strident horn bursts, assuredly laid-back hi-hats and snares. "What is THAT?" I asked, running to the stereo. The punch line is that… read more »

This compilation by Al Green is great. Although all of his albums were good, this greatest hits is nice to have to hear the big ones all together.

Wanna Get Laid?

...Well this album probably won't help you- you either have it or you don't. That being said, if you do happen to have it, this album will certainly speed things along, in a not-so-speedy, but oh-so-sexy sort of way.

Six Degrees of A Love Supreme

By Britt Robson, Contributor

It used to be easier to pretend that an album was its own perfectly self-contained artifact. The great records certainly feel that way. But albums are more permeable than solid, their motivations, executions and inspirations informed by, and often stolen from, their peers and forbearers. It all sounds awfully formal, but it's not. It's the very nature of music — of art, even. The Six Degrees features examine the relationships between classic records and five… more »

They Say All Music Guide

Upon its original release in 1975, Al Green’s Greatest Hits pretty much summed up everything about Green, containing his ten biggest hits up to that point. A few years later, it was followed by a second volume, which contained hit singles that had charted since the release of the first collection. In 1995, The Right Stuff reissued Al Green’s Greatest Hits, adding five of the highlights from the second volume of greatest hits as bonus tracks. The result was a definitive single-disc compilation, featuring 15 of Green’s absolute best songs, including “Tired of Being Alone,” “Let’s Stay Together,” “I’m Still in Love With You,” “Call Me,” “Here I Am,” “Sha-La-La (Make Me Happy),” and “L-O-V-E (Love).” The original version of Greatest Hits was great, but the revision made it nearly perfect. – Stephen Thomas Erlewine
