From his early days on the gospel and R&B circuits, his fateful encounter with legendary producer Willie Mitchell, his climb to the top of the charts, the attempted murder and suicide scandal that made headlines worldwide, and his decision to become a pastor and found his own church—the Full Gospel Tabernacle in Memphis, Tennessee—it chronicles Al Green’s career in rich detail.

Live At The Apollo
Paperback ISBN: 0826415725
In this remarkable book, Douglas Wolk brings to life an October evening in 1962, at the Apollo Theatre in Harlem: an evening at the height of Cold War tensions. In great detail, Wolk pieces together what took place (and what was recorded) that night, and illustrates beautifully the enduring power of one of James Brown's - and popular music's - defining moments: Live at the Apollo.EXCERPTStanding on the stage of the Apollo at a sold-out show on the night of October 24, 1962, screaming, James Brown would have looked out and seen 1500 people screaming back at him in the audience, split between the floor and the balconies. The walls behind them were a dark crimson; the balconies were decorated with the laurel wreaths that are the emblem of Apollo the god, recalling Daphne, who became a laurel tree to escape his lust. Most of the audience thought there was a good chance they'd be dead within the week.
