In honor of Breast Cancer Awareness Month, Fat Possum is proud to present a limited, one-time pressing of Al Green's "The Belle Album" on pink vinyl in support of national breast cancer awareness month, with $1 for every unit sold sponsoring Gilda's Club NYC.
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." But "I Feel Good" had as much danceable energy and soulful fire as any Green up-tempo tune, and "Lovin' You" and "Dream" were sorely underrated compositions.
