One of my favorite singers of all time is Al Green. He's got a magnificent voice. Let's Stay Together is such a classic song that I love so much. Not any connection to the Rat Pack at all that I know of, but I really dig this tune.
Let's Stay Together hit #1 on the Billboard Hot 100 in 1972. It remained on the chart for 16 weeks. It also topped Billboard's R&B chart for 9 weeks. The song has been ranked 60 on Rolling Stone magazine's list of the 500 Greatest Songs of All Time. A cover version of the song by Tina Turner would pave the way for her comeback in the 1980's.
This video clip is from the Apollo Hall of Fame Concert in 1993. I hope you enjoy it too. The audience is definitely get into the song big time. Cheers!
