Retro Music 57

I was 19 years old in 1971, and my music tastes were becoming more varied. Deep down though, I was still a Soul Boy at heart, and that year I heard a wonderful Soul singer with his great new song. I bought this record the same day, then went on to buy his other records for the next four years.

By 1976 Al Green had decided to become a Gospel Minister, and changed his musical direction to Christian music. For me, that was a great loss to the genre of Soul Music.
He still performs today.

    1. That is an undeniable classic by Al, and also Tina Turner. Not sure I have heard Bryan’s version, I will look it up.
      (Can’t find it, only this one. It’s a different song.)

      Best wishes, Pete.

    1. I love his hits, like ‘Let’s Stay Together’, and ‘How can You Mend A Broken Heart’. It annoys me when people say that ‘Let’s Stay Together’ is a Tina Turner song, even though I also like Tina.
      Best wishes, Pete.
