To the editors:

I was pleased to see Green's "White Soul and Bittersweet" included in Bill Wyman's top ten of 1991 [January 17], although it reminded me that life can be unjust in Chicago's music scene.

While many less deserving bands get signed to the majors, Green remains on small labels, creating pop masterpieces that go largely unheard. You can't find their albums in most of the large record chains, or hear them much on local radio (WAKE UP, WXRT!).

It's worth the effort to seek out their albums at some of the independent record stores, or see them when they play around town. You won't be disappointed.

Critical acclaim is great, but it can't sustain a band forever. Rock and roll fans will lose a lot if we lose Green.
