Born of humble origins in Arkansas in 1946, Al Green was to emerge as the first great soul singer of the 1970s and arguably the last great Southern singer, issuing records that were to influence not only his contemporaries, but veterans like Marvin Gaye. This work looks at his life and, while there are undoubted moments of tragedy, Green demonstrates reasons for resistance, joy and, ultimately, celebration. With the assistance of music writer Davin Seay, the book relates the turbulent, fascinating and inspirational life of one of the real stars of 20th-century music.
