Since the May 27 release of his chart-topping and critically lauded Blue Note Records album, Lay It Down, it has been a whirlwind year for legendary soul and R&B icon, Al Green. With Lay It Down, Green has delivered the highest debuting record of his accomplished career since his 1972 classic, I'm Still In Love With You.

Such a gentleman, that Al Green. No one brought him flowers at Showcase Live Friday night [in Boston], but he passed out long-stem red roses (dethorned, of course) to the ladies in the sold-out house.
It was a sweet gesture, and, obviously, it was a scripted part of Green's usual show, as was the set list he's been doing verbatim for a while now. With a cursory Google search, you know exactly what you're going to get at an Al Green show - and you couldn't ask for a better time (well, a few more songs, and an encore, would be nice).
