In 1968, WNET NYC, began airing Soul!, a landmark televised music program. Just a few of the many artists who graced the airwaves during its 39-week run include Muhammad Ali, James Baldwin, Stokely Carmichael, the Delfonics, Earth, Wind & Fire, Louis Farrakhan, Nikki Giovanni (a frequent host), Patti LaBelle, Miriam Makeba, Curtis Mayfield, Toni Morrison, Tito Puente, Max Roach, Stevie Wonder. . .and a full hour with Al Green who was 26 when he recorded this concert in the Soul! studios.

It's a monstrous performance. Green explodes his hits: note the incredible intro to "Tired Of Being Alone," the fiery, expanded "Love And Happiness," and a genius cover of the Carpenters' "We've Only Just Begun" that segues into "Let's Stay Together." Part of Music Craft, our regular series featuring rare concert footage from music legends.
