Al Green is one of the most popular living gospel and soul music singers and the recipient of the BET Lifetime Achievement Award. Davin Seay is the coauthor of Heart & Soul: A Celebration of Black Music Style in America; Tha Doggfather: The Times, Trials, and Hardcore Truths of Snoop Dogg; and With God on Our Side: One Man's War Against an Evangelical Coup in America's Military.
"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
