"The microphones are sucking up so much ace skin sound on these discs. Mister Pel is a master of the fat and the skinny and can match a sound to a sound like Dulux matches the paint."Graham Coxon | Musician

|Referencing one of the more recent Al Green tracks 'I'm Wild About You'. This groove starts off with a dark, tribal like tom pattern, which then develops into the more familiar Al Green, boom-bap foot tapper.||Soul||105||M S L||More Info|
|The instantly recognisable 'Let's Stay Together' by Al green inspires this multifaceted drum composition. Kicking off with the classic intro ride groove, which then melts into a driving verse pattern, which is politely interrupted now and then by its classic Motown bridge part.

|Al Green and John Legend's collaboration 'Stay With Me' was the inspiration behind this unique groove.

|If 'What More Do You Want From Me' from Al Green's 2010 release was recorded in 1973, it may have sounded like this. A simple, but groove heavy pattern that has two subtle sections, which are interlinked using tasteful fills.||Soul||84||M S L||More Info|
