Al Green: The Soul Story

Roger St. Pierre, Beat Instrumental, December 1971

WITH AL Green's 'Tired Of Being Alone' Decca's subsidiary London label has notched its first chart entry in more than 18 months. It's quite a chastening thought when you consider that London was for many years Britain's leading soul/R&B label with monster hits by Otis Redding, Little Richard, Solomon Burke, Wilson Pickett and Ray Charles, to name but a few.
