Lauded author and journalist Jimmy McDonough tackles the tough assignment of helping to define one of the greatest soul singers of all time, Al Green. Green is well known to be elusive, mysterious, and eccentric. Narrator JD Jackson provides a perfectly suited narration--hip, urbane, articulate, polished, and musical. There's little question that there are multiple personalities within Green, and McDonough masterfully captures them all while offering the bonus of witty, contemplative critical commentary on Green's performances and recordings. As the biography progresses, we learn that Green is now cautiously balanced between the worldly and sacred worlds, as he has become an ordained pastor of the Memphis Full Gospel Tabernacle. Music enthusiasts of most any stripe will likely enjoy this thorough musical portrait. W.A.G. © AudioFile 2017, Portland, Maine [Published: NOVEMBER 2017]
