    Al Green

    Back locally for the first time since ACL Fest 2003, Al Green, 73, begins his first tour in six years – an eight-city jaunt – at Bass Concert Hall. Last Saturday on Record Store Day, Possum Records released The Hi Records Singles Collection, which contains all 26 vinyl singles by the Grammy-winning Kennedy Center Honors recipient.: Once the Arkansas native found his voice with the help of producer Willie Mitchell (1928-2010), he broke through with Al Green Gets Next to You in 1971, featuring a bluesy cover of the Temptations’ “I Can’t Get Next to You.” The LP also contained million-seller “Tired of Being Alone.” The esteemed Let’s Stay Together (1972) followed, Green’s smooth falsetto ascending the soul pantheon with its honeyed, Billboard-topping title track.: Aside from Marvin Gaye, and perhaps the Isley Brothers, the son of a sharecropper defined Seventies R&B. None of it would’ve been possible without Mitchell’s tutelage, a yearlong process beginning with Green approaching the producer “to find out who Al was.” At some point, Mitchell angered him and Green stormed out of a studio.: “I left, squealing my tires out of the parking lot, and went home,” chuckles Green. “I thought about it, and called him back. I was a lot clearer later that night, I said, ‘Hey man! Are you ready?’ He started laughing. He said, ‘Yeah, I’m ready.’: “I was gonna sing like Pickett, or James Brown,” continues Green. “He said, ‘No, no, no. That’s not it.’ Then I said, ‘Okay, I’m gonna just sing it without putting anything extra into it.’ And I went, [singing], ‘I’m so in love with you.’: “He said, ‘That’s it – that’s Al!’ I said, ‘Oh, okay. Now I know who Al is.’”

    Steve Gunn, Gun Outfit, Michael C. Sharp

    Since leaving Kurt Vile’s band and releasing his 2013 breakthrough fifth album Time Off, New York singer/songwriter/guitarist Steve Gunn earned critical acclaim for a series of engaging, expansive folk/rock records. Eighth LP The Unseen in Between continues that trend, gently shifting the spotlight from the virtuoso guitar work that grabbed public attention to the songs into which he pours heart, soul, and craft.: “It’s obvious the record is a bit reduced,” says Gunn by phone following a soundcheck in Belgium. “There’s some poppier stuff in there. Years ago I wouldn’t have been into that, but I’ve come around to it and that simplified how I come up with songs. Before, I was writing really complex, open-tuning, capoed songs that had all these weird movements and parts.: “For this record, I felt like really focusing on the lyrics and the singing, and I felt a bit more freed up.”: The introspective Unseen does bear some connection to Time Off, as the Philadelphia native revisited the older disc’s aesthetic, recording mostly live after vigorously road-testing the tunes.: “[2016’s] Eyes on the Lines was just this web of tracks, and it was just too much,” admits Gunn. “I wanted to get back to the way it felt with Time Off. Obviously I’ve come a long way with my singing and song structure, but there’s an ease to that record. Things are a bit more simple [on Unseen], in the sense of trying to get back to that. It felt really organic, like I wasn’t trying to be better than I am.: “I think in the past I was trying to force it a bit. Guess I’m just getting old. I felt a little more mature with this record, like I can stand on my own singing and strumming.”

This one features "a body, an android, a judge, and a race for redemption." But … but that sounds serious. Have our favorite old-school clowns at long last ditched frivolity for more somber effect? Fear not! As related on their own Facebook post, "We have finished writing the scenario and it’s bleak AF. Now to figure out how to fill it with jokes." Excellent. So we'll just ask Leon about the tortoise one more time, Mr. Tyrell, and then we'll be right there with you, laughing along.
