Al Green - Compact Command Performances: 14 Greatest Hits
My beef with every single tv singing competition aside, this is a fantastic compilation. It is not the most thorough compilation of Al Green's greatness, but every single track is a stone-cold slice of soul. Sure, I could point you in the direction of compilations with more tracks (The Definitive Greatest Hits) or compilations that give a greater overview of the man's career (The Immortal Soul of Al Green), but this compilation gives you exactly what it is supposed to: 14 of Al Green's greatest soul tracks.
