¿Whats this iPod Shuffle set all about? Read about it here

 

Albert Greene (born April 13, 1946) better known as Al Green, is an American gospel and soul music singer.

 

In 2005, Rolling Stone named him no 65 in their list of the '100 Greatest Artists of All Time'. The nomination, written by Justin Timberlake, stated that "people are born to do certain things, and Al was born to make us smile."

 

The Rock and Roll Hall of Fame inducted Green in 1995, referring to him as "one of the most gifted purveyors of soul music." Green has sold more than 20 million records. In 2000, Green published Take Me to the River, a book discussing his career. Green received a Grammy Lifetime Achievement Award in 2002.

 

I was introduced to Al Green via the cover of this track by talking Heads ( www.youtube.com/watch?v=anjT71N4PGM ). There are some great compilations out there to checkout more of his compositions.

Inns Quay is where you find Four Courts, across Dublin's river Liffey.

 

The Four Courts was built between 1786 and 1796 by renowned architect James Gandon, while the finishing touches to the arcades and wings were completed in 1802. The lands were previously used by the King's Inns. The building originally housed the four courts of Chancery, King's Bench, Exchequer, and Common Pleas, hence the name of the building.

 

A major revision in the court system in the late nineteenth century saw these courts replaced, but the building has retained its historic name. This courts system remained until 1924, when the new Irish Free State introduced a new courts structure, replacing the old High Court of Ireland, the Lord Chief Justice of Ireland and the Lord Chancellor of Ireland with a new Supreme Court presided over by the Chief Justice and a High Court of Justice, presided over by the President of the High Court.
