Reviews

"Green's journey from Arkansas sharecropper to R & B star to preacher is as compelling as any great blues or gospel song . . . Green is frank in personalizing his theme of the struggle between religion and the temptations of fame and fortune. But he is most disarming in his joyous descriptions of the singing and music-making sessions with early groups and bands." --Booklist
