Originally released in 1969, Green Is Blues was Al Green's second album, and his first record for Hi Records. To celebrate its 50th anniversary, Fat Possum Records present a beautiful reissue of this classic soul LP. 

Significant for matching for the first time Green's soulful refined vocal brilliance with the skilful production of co-writer/producer Willie Mitchell and the tight arrangements of Memphis' renowned Hi Rhythm Section, the album ushered in a new era for "The Memphis Sound" – effectively kick-starting a studio partnership between Green and Mitchell that would see Al go on to become the premier soul superstar of the early Seventies.
