Since September 2010, this blog has recorded the journey of this middle-aged man as I attempt to listen to all the music in my CD collection. CDs revisited in their entirety from start to finish - no skipping tracks, no shuffle. CDs only - no vinyl, no tapes, no downloads. And just as CD technology (and the album format itself) becomes obsolete. I'm no music critic, just a music junkie with too much time on my hands.

Al Green - More Greatest Hits (1998)
Because there's no such thing as too much Al Green.
Peak on the US Billboard Top 200 chart: Did not chart
Peak on Billboard's R&B albums chart: #78
Tracks: Since the definitive version of Green's hits was already released, this follow-up volume contains minor hits, album tracks, soundtrack contributions, and rarities. The real treasure here is the "long version" of Let's Stay Together that clocks in at 4:48. Also included are Green classics like Take Me To The River, For The Good Times, and How Can You Mend A Broken Heart. To be honest, I could do without the 1989 Al B. Sure collaboration, As Long As We're Together.
Personal Memory Associated with this CD: None
