Digging for Covers: Al Green meets The Beatles

Al Green recorded his take of the Beatles’ classic “I Want To Hold Your Hand” in 1969, six years after its original 1963 release. It’s a daunting task taking on the Beatles best-selling single of all-time, especially when the band was still together. But it was no problem for Green. He dialed up the funk and transformed one of Lennon and McCartney's best rock songs into sweet honey-dripping soul.
