The Belle Album is the 12th studio album by soul musician Al Green. It is his first album recorded without longtime producer Willie Mitchell, owner of Green's former label, Hi Records. With Mitchell and his label Green also abandoned the famed Hi Rhythm Section, which had previously played a large part in defining Green's distinctive musical style. This also marks the first instance in which Green plays lead guitar on his records.

Al Green severed his ties with longtime producer Willie Mitchell in 1977, establishing his own backup band and seizing the production reins. But he hadn't yet made the final break with soul this was the last secular work he would make for many years, and it was brilliant, even though it didn't come close to equaling his previous commercial heights. In retrospect, many just didn't understand where he was going, while others were turned off by the blurred lyrical focus of songs like Belle. Listen free to Al Green The Belle Album Belle, Loving You and more. 8 tracks 39:16. Green kicks the record off with what I suppose is the key line from Belle : Its you that I wantBut Him that I need. He thus joins a long line of rock & roll wantneed oppositionists - from Bob Dylan with Memphis Blues Again to the Rolling Stones with You Cant Always Get What You Want, to name only the best. He leaves them behind in his attempt to resolve the contradiction: Green tries to get Belle to accept Jesus, too. With its half-buried asides about drunken country bars, the song soon grows very spooky it h. It is his first album recorded without longtime producer Willie Mitchell, owner of Greens former label, Hi Records. This also marks the first instance in which Green plays lead guitar on his records and also didint include the Hi Rhythm Section. The Belle Album is also one of the last in a string of secular recordings made by Green before he had converted to Christianity and had been ordained as a pastor The Belle Album Q&A.
