Al Green may have hit the pinnacle of his success in the 1970’s, but his contribution to soul music will live on for decades to come. Having sold over 20 million records in his lifetime, the gifted singer was inducted into the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame in 1995, and has recently been listed on Rolling Stone’s 100 Greatest Artists of All Time.
“Love and Happiness” was the hit single on Green’s fifth studio album, I’m Still in Love With You, released in October of 1972. The Album hit as high as number four on the U.S. Billboard 200, and is still remembered as one of the greatest soul records ever.
“Love and Happiness” ranked 98th on Rolling Stone’s 500 Greatest Songs of All Time, published in 2004.
