Rev. Al Green comment

I’m a punk, but it occurs to me that Al Green’s ‘Let’s Stay Together’ is so masterful because it throbs with despair and (possible) menace. And at the start, it is actual art.

You’re welcome.

    Saw al at the Winnipeg Jazz festival 2 years ago. I’ve seen a lot of concerts, but i’ve never seen another one as good as his was. A complete entertainer, and that sweet sweet voice.

      The Reverend Al is a classic. Smelter, have you ever caught the Neville bros. I saw them at Ontario Place about 20 years ago. Aaron Neville was extraordinary. Then there is People Get Ready by Curtis Mayfield. Not punk at all, but a classic song.

    Great, great song.
