Happy Birthday Al Green!

Happy Birthday to the great Al Green, born April 13, 1946.

Al Green is one of the most enduring soul singers of the rock era, and is considered by many the most important male singer since Sam Cooke.  His early 70s work on Hi Records sounds as good today as it did then, and his legend has continued to grow over the past quarter century even as he generally turned his back on popular music.
