Updated October 13, 2018 667 votes 149 voters 6.4k views

List RulesThis list includes studio albums only, so if you add an album make sure it's a proper studio release.

Al Green is known to many as one of the best soul artists of all time. Since he's such an influential artist, let’s rank the best Al Green albums, with the help of your votes. Widely known as the Reverend Al Green, the acclaimed singer and songwriter was raised in a strict religious family, which influences are evident in his gospel albums beginning with The Lord Will Make a Way (1980). Of course, Green struck it big first with his R&B records. Albums like Let’s Stay Together (1972) and Al Green Explores Your Mind (1974) earned him a spot in the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame in 1995.

This Al Green discography is ranked from best to worst, so the top Al Green albums can be found at the top of the list. To make it easy for you, we haven't included Al Green singles, EPs, or compilations, so everything you see here should only be studio albums. If you think the greatest Al Green album isn't high enough on the list, then be sure to vote for it so it receives the credit it deserves. Make sure you don't just vote for critically acclaimed albums; if you have a favorite Al Green album, then vote it up, even if it's not necessarily the most popular.

Everything from Green's debut Back Up Train (1967) to his more recent Lay It Down (2008) is included on this list. This list of popular Al Green CDs has been voted on by music fans around the world, so the order of this list isn't just one person's opinion.
