Here I am, Come and Take me

Here I am, Come and Take me
Al Green on Soul Train, 1974
Today is Al Green’s sixty eighth birthday, which means he was twenty eight when this show was recorded, and that I was sixteen when I first watched it on a Saturday afternoon.  Al’s arm is in a sling during this particular performance because some overzealous fans (according to him some thirty admirers) at an earlier event were trying to keep him from leaving before they had their fill of him, grabbed him and fractured it.

At the end he just said: I'm going to go now.
