Limited pink vinyl LP pressing. In honor of Breast Cancer Awareness Month, Al Green's The Belle Album is being proudly presented as a limited, one-time pink vinyl pressing.1977's The Belle Album was a celebration of something new. A new Al Green. For the first time in his career, Green wrote all of the album's eight songs, produced them in his own Memphis studio, and acted as his own lead guitarist. It was also his first album in years sans longtime producer Willie Mitchell and the Hi Rhythm Section and last secular recording prior to being ordained as a minister and making gospel albums exclusively. Dedicated to the memory of his father Robert Green, Sr. and DeWitt Jordan, Al exclaimed that he wanted The Belle Album to "make you shout for joy" and if you can sit still or your heart doesn't flutter when tracks like "I Feel Good," "Lovin' You" and "Dream" hit your turntable, you'd better check your pulse!
