Timmy Soul Presents : Al Green’s Alpha almost Nada rewriting history

Timmy Soul Presents : Al Green’s Alpha almost Nada rewriting history

Playing tracks by

Al Greene & the Soul Mates, the People’s Choice, the O’Jays, Ortheia Barnes, Chubby and the Turnpikes and more.

Chart positions

This show was 13th in the global northern soul chart and 77th in the global soul chart.

Crate digging brought this one up; an odd release with unknown catalogue number and no distributor’s credit. To understand this you need to know that these are Al Green’s first songs to be layed on vinyl. The 45 became not instantly a national minor hit. The American release on Hot Line Music Journal we all knew of was distributed by Bell records and bears a totally different catalogue numbering system. I proposed the matter on a forum where soul collectors and connoisseurs alike can share their knowledge and expertise. The criss-crossing of articles, discographies and criticism made us understand in the end only what this single is really all about and revealed the truth that all the official discographies wrote wrong about Al Green’s begginings. This shows how the story or fate behind this 45 actually destined Al Green to become one of the biggest soul artist from the 7T’s. http://www.soul-source.co.uk/soulforum/topic/317508-al-green-dont-leave-me-1st-hot-line-music-journal-issue/

Great Al Tune!!, use to play Back-Up Train at my djing gigs in the 60s, another wicked tune on the Bell label.
