Soul train

452b_3.JPG

Al Green(e) and the Soul Mates. (1968) This is Reverend Al’s first LP and his first hit song – “Back Up Train”. This is the rare first cover that was re-released in 1972 with a low budget alternate cover.

Al Green would be on my desert island list for sure. Anytime, anywhere I hear an Al Green song, and no matter how often I’ve heard it, I feel at home.
