Band Bio: The Reverend Al Green is known the world over for his extraordinary voice, his unmistakable sound and his legendary hits. With Everything?s OK, his new release for Blue Note Records, Al Green comes to an exciting new chapter in his artistry. Strong in voice and in spirit, the Rock & Roll Hall of Famer sings a dozen songs that reveal his renewed passion for the kind of music that made him a household name some 30 years ago.

It was in the early 1970s that Green carved his place in music history with a run of celebrated hits that made him not just an R&B star but a pop icon. Since 1976, however, Green has concentrated on gospel music (recording numerous albums, but only two pop offerings), and since 1979 has led his Baptist congregation, the Full Gospel Tabernacle, in Memphis, Tenn. For Everything?s OK, Green embraces both worlds by releasing a "secular" album under the name the Reverend Al Green?a symbolic gesture, perhaps, but a significant one nonetheless.
