The Belle Album is a celebration of something new. A new Al Green. For the first time in his seven years as a singer, Al is writing all his own songs, producing them in his own Memphis studio, and acting as his own lead guitarist.
Al says he wants his new music to "make you shout for joy" and if you can sit still when the new Al Green hits your turntable, you'd better check to see if you're still alive.
Recorded at American Music Recording Studios, 3208 Winchester Road, Memphis, Tennessee 38108
"This album is respectfully dedicated to the memory of my father, Robert Green, Sr. and DeWitt Jordan" - Al Green
