Al Green

John Abbey, Blues & Soul, March 1973

ALTHOUGH AL Green claimed to be a little surprised about being voted No. 1 Male Vocalist in our annual poll. I think that few other people would be because Al Green is – and has been for well over a year now – the most consistently popular soul man. Al Green is the man that everybody likes and a measure of his consistency and popularity lies in the fact that he appeared in virtually every readers Top 5 Male Vocalist listing.
