Albert Leornes Greene (born April 13, 1946), often known as The Reverend Al Green, is an American singer, songwriter and record producer, best known for recording a series of soul hit singles in the early 1970s, including "Take Me to the River", "Tired of Being Alone", "I'm Still in Love with You", "Love and Happiness", and his signature song, "Let's Stay Together".

Al Green fans will be aware that The Immortal Soul of Al Green actually marks the second time that a four-CD box set of Green's recordings has been assembled, following by seven years its predecessor, Anthology. That being the case, the obvious question is, why do listeners need another Al Green box set? The answer lies in the two conflicting approaches most often employed in box sets.

All business, The Immortal Soul of Al Green takes a different tack, presenting a genuine overview: seventy-five tracks, including practically every charting hit, in rough chronology. You can hear the early Green, a rough-and-ready southern soul man, grow comfortable within the smoother Hi formula. And you can hear the later Green, tiring of that formula, coast into the late '70s (brilliantly, but coasting regardless) until he steps away from Mitchell to record The Belle Album, a stripped-down masterpiece based around his own acoustic guitar. But, it doesn't get better than this. If you enjoy Al Green & love soul music, making the big step now to get the box set is defiantly worth it.

They were billed as Al Greene and the Soul Mates, and released this self-penned single on their own label. The record became a local and then a national hit, and the band were invited to the Harlem Apollo, where an ecstatic crowd called them back to perform nine encores of the song. The closing track on Green’s 1973 album Livin’ for You is disconcerting and unsettling, though it appears mellifluous and warm. If Green’s best songs explore the tug of war between the soul and the flesh, Beware seems to show the consummate lover warning us his motives may not be honourable. In the eyes of the fans of Al Green, the last Al Green record was in 1977, drummer, producer and Roots bandleader Questlove told me in 2008. You know, not to negate the 17 that came between 1977 and 2005 – but they don’t count. It’s almost as if he didn’t record.

This discography is of the albums and singles released by American R&B/soul singer Al Green. Movie/television soundtracks.
