The Green Brothers - Soul Place

 

The Green Brothers (Al and Bobby) were the last act signed to Stax Records in 1975, which meant their only release for the label never got out of the starting gate when the company went into receivership. The two Detroit brothers nevertheless kept singing and writing, activities that ultimately led to a reunion with Stax producer and LocoBop's man in Memphis Bobby Manuel. The brothers cut a brand new album, Soulsville, with Bobby at Ardent Studios. Backing was provided by a stellar group of veteran musicians from Stax and Hi Records.

The Green Brothers added a bonus track to the album, sung by Bobby Greenís daughter, Keena Green. With a cross/blend of soul, gospel, blues, pop, and country, Keenaís vocal power and performance is spine tingling. Before going solo, Keena (with her two sisters) saw success as a member of Epic recording group Sweet Obsession.

The liner notes for the CD release of this album were written by Rob Bowman who got a Grammy for his work on the Stax box sets, and wrote the best-selling book, Soulsville U.S.A.: The Story of Stax Records.

Highlights on this album:  I JUST WANNA LOVE YOU (ONE MORE TIME),  KEEP ON SEARCHIN', and  SOULSVILLE.
