Al Green, the master of sensual southern soul and refined groove, gives us his greatest tracks from Hi Records. Thanks to Willie Mitchell, producer and boss of this legendary Memphis label, the reverend Al Green and his sexual falsetto collates his 1968-1978 hits into this original production. There is a constant battle between the temptation of the flesh and religious self-denial throughout, and Al Green remains firmly between the soul and gospel stylings of the South and the luxurious Philly sound. His voice is spellbindingly erotic, and is carried by the production of Mitchell, the backbone of many of his albums.


With restrained metronomic drums, big brass and subdued guitar playing, no one else can reach such a level of profound sensuality through the simplicity of I'm Still in Love With You or Let's Stay Together. Al Green whispers, speaks and shouts, like a soul preacher on the verge of committing sin. In 1974, he was even severely burnt while in the bath by his girlfriend who committed suicide a few minutes later. Green took this as a “sign from God” and became a pastor two years later. "I learned more stuff in church than I did in the world.” This collection brings together all the remastered singles from his twelve albums for Hi Records, and only helps us understand his genius further. You can’t help but still be impressed by the magical combination of this unique voice and the muted music that stands the test of time. Essential listening. © Marc Zisman/Qobuz

Neo Soul in 10 Albums

In the midst of the 90s when hip-hop was going through its golden age, a revolution within soul music was also underway. With Erykah Badu, D’angelo, Jill Scott and many others, the genre found again its class: an echo of the simplicity and refinement that brought to life the albums of Marvin Gaye, Curtis Mayfield and Roberta Flack. After years in the shadow of the reigning ultra-commercial and soft R&B, the noticeably more underground Neo Soul, or Nu Soul, relit the flame of soul music and returned it to its roots in terms of both composition and lyricism. A brief but highly influential movement.

Curtis Mayfield, in a League of his Own

Aesthete guitar player worshiped by Jimi Hendrix, extraordinary falsetto singer revered by Prince, and a brilliant songwriter, Curtis Mayfield treated melodies as a master sculptor. His songs melded funk, gospel and soul together. Twenty years after his death, his politically charged music is still relevant and well-suited to describe America under Donald Trump.
