#22) Al Green - Greatest Hits (reissued with bonus tracks in 1995, I bought it on the cheap at Wal-Mart sometime in early 2003)

If anybody could make me question my identity as an agnostic heterosexual, it would be Mr. Green. A lot of the songs sound the same, but they come off like waves in the ocean - the repetitiveness only adds to their beauty and my awe. Read the chapter about him in Robert Christgau's Grown Up All Wrong for more valuable information. I really need to check that book out again (and buy more Al Green).
