[lastfm]Al Green[/lastfm]’s music is so ubiquitous, it’s hard to go a single day without hearing one of his classics, like “Let’s Stay Together,” “Tired of Being Alone” or “Love and Happiness.” Still an active touring artist, Green continues to headline venues and festivals around the world, spreading his legend and recruiting new fans every day.

Casual fans and aficionados alike will love this new release from Al Green’s archives. “Love Ritual: Rare & Unreleased (1968-76)” will be a trip down memory lane for some, with rare demo versions of songs like “Strong as Death (Sweet as Love)” and “Love Ritual.” Everyone will delight in previously unreleased gems like Green’s take on “I Want To Hold Your Hand” and “Ride Sally Ride.”
