Memphis R&B star Al Green returns with 'I Can't Stop' album.

VETERAN R&B hitmaker and church minister Al Green has joined again with his legendary producer Willie Mitchell for a new album 'I Can't Stop', due to be released by Blue Note on 18th November. For the new set, the only rule that Mitchell stipulated was that this should not be a gospel album. Said Mitchell, "I had some things in my head and he had things in his head. We didn't have a label at the time. My idea was just to cut some good songs and make him sing well. And it came out exactly the way I planned it. There was no doubt that we'd get a label."

Another release scheduled, this time for 2004 release, is a four-CD EMI package 'Al Green: The Immortal Soul Of Al Green'. CR
