X For Xcellent – Al Green

Each week on Saturday Brunch, join Lee Middleton as he shares the story and music of a featured artist and awards them the much coveted but completely fictional prize of being X for Xcellent.

The son of a sharecropper and the 6th of 10 children, Al Green is one of the most legendary names in soul and gospel music. From a high school group to a reverend , Al Greens story is littered with iconic songs including seven consecutive gold singles. We play you the first of those gold singles and the song with which he will always be best known.
