Two rec­om­mended DVDs: best is Live In ’72 (Re­volver En­ter­tain­ment, 2005), Al in his early pomp in front of a New York stu­dio au­di­ence for PBS’s Soul! show. An hour of bliss, with How Can You Mend A Bro­ken Heart a show­stop­per. The noted doc­u­men­tary di­rec­tor Robert Mugge’s The Gospel Ac­cord­ing To… (see reis­sue, p114), filmed in ’83, has fine per­for­mances and his own words, back in the day, on his de­ci­sion to swap stage for pul­pit. In print, Take Me To The River (Harper, 2000), writ­ten with Davin Seay, won’t sat­isfy soul fans – Green isn’t re­ally keen to wholly en­gage with his era most of us are in­ter­ested in.
