It’s only half over, but 2008 has been a whirlwind year for legendary soul and R&B icon, Al Green.

With his new album, Lay It Down, released May 27 on Blue Note Records, Green delivers the highest debuting record of his career, charting at #9 on the Billboard Top 200 chart and at #4 on the R&B/ Hip-Hop chart this week. It’s Green’s highest chart position since his classic I’m Still In Love With You peaked at #4 in 1972.
