Alternately suppose you are looking for songs by Amy Winehouseas a recent visitor was. Well lets look up her surname, selecting "w" in the list above leads to a page that lists the word ranges that start with "w" we pick "Wildw - Wit'c", since "Winehouse" is in that range.
November 30th, 6 comments Sometimes the less you know about your favourite singers, the better. Who knew that Al Green, the soul legend, is not an all-round good egg, nor, indeed, an all-round bad egg. The good Reverend is one hell of a conflicted cat.
For fans of popular music, and especially of soul, the book is a treasure. Obviously the focus is on Green, but to understand Green — in as far as the man can be even remotely understood — one must also know the context in which he has existed and recorded.
So McDonough introduces a cast of co-stars and supporting actors along the way. So he locked himself up in a studio room and wrote them in 15 minutes — starting one of the great love songs as a reflection on black politics… Green then wanted to sing the song in shouty southern soul style.
Mitchell insisted he sing it all mellow. Green was very unhappy with that idea and sped off in his car, wheels all a-screeching. When he returned, he deliberately sang the song as relaxed and with as little emotion he could muster, just to spite Mitchell — who in turn said that this was exactly the sound he wanted.
No more takes were needed; a new kind of soul singer was born that day. The Hi Records part of the Al Green story is a most welcome bonus in this book. Al Green makes his Soul Train debut insinging Tired Of Being Alone while wearing gold boxer boots, black vinyl hot pants, magenta vinyl vest, a gold chain, a pink pimp hat at a jaunty angle, and a man-bag on his shoulders.
Give him a cane and he could fit into a scene from The Deuce. Obviously a devoted fan, he speaks with authority even as he expresses strong opinions. One wants to play the songs he is writing about just to hear what he hears.
But that is a minor criticism. McDonough marshals his widely collated resources well, even if it becomes difficult at some points to keep track of who is who. Soul Survivor has a few moments of great trivia. And among the more startling revelation is that Green apparently is a freemason, in an African-American wing of the secret society that has also included such luminaries as Jesse Jackson, Al Sharpton and Richard Pryor.
Take Me To The River payday: Which takes us to the suicide of Mary Woodson and her attack on him with boiling grits Green tends to insist it was Cream of Wheat that preceded it.
McDonough cites a lot of research on the incident; all it shows is that the official verdict of suicide should be seen as inconclusive. As with everything, Green is a walking contradiction in that role. One moment given to evangelical zeal and Christian charity, the next driven by that nasty underside that always seems to reside beneath his surface.
The man who emerges in the pages of Soul Survivor is alone and lonely, one who attracts people easily with charm and kindness, and then always finds ways to repel them with appalling behaviour.This is the letter, to myself Don't put it on the pile with all the rest So many years, of hiding away Nobody knew of all the songs I made Oh oh oh Oh oh oh This is the letter.
