"AL Green is so deep it ain't even funny.Albums such as these have so much depth&juice that it blows the mind&Soul Away.I can't begin to describe this Brother's Musical Impact?He put's so much Emotion&Feeling into the things he does that it's Down Right Scary.this too many at Large is a Hidden Jewel.now that's Genius.50-90% of Artists would Love to have this considered as their Best Album.MR.Green has a Dynamite Catalog.Check it out.folks like me miss that Soul but you get a Great Serving here."

"In the 70's Al Green perfected his own unique sound; excellent, moody melodies, crisp horns, sassy female backing vocals and his trademark falsetto. Consequently, he had a string of consistent, excellent albums longer than almost any artists, yet because of the lack of variety another Al Green release could hardly be considered exciting. "Green Is Blues," however, was recorded before Al Green fell into this formula. Here a younger Al Green tries to find his niche by experimenting with southern soul, r&b and blues. It may not be as jaw-droppingly amazing as subsequent albums, but it is worth having simply because its one of the few releases where Al Green mixes things up a bit. Fans of Al Green who are looking for an interesting departure from his trademark sound will love this. You can't really go wrong with any Al Green release, but those looking for a typical Al Green release would be better off with "Still in Love With You" or his greatest hits."

"No one can get into a song like Al Green. On Green Is Blues, his interpretations of songs like "Get Back", "The Letter", "My Girl" and "Summertime" strip them to their core and Rev. Green refills them in with his expressive and inventive voice. Other songs like "One Woman", "What Am I Gonna Do With Myself" and "Gotta Find A New World" also show off his magnificent voice."
