(June 24, 2016): Al Green – Want To Hold Your Hand

For the next little while, I’ve decided to put out some little heard covers. This is from the 1969 a-side 7″ 45 rpm promo, Want To Hold Your Hand / What Am I Gonna Do With Myself. The song did not get a public release until its inclusion on the 1984 compilation, “East Memphis Music” — although other pop/rock covers did make it on to Green’s 1969 LP, “Green is Blues”, including “The Letter” by the Box Tops.
