Blackberry Belle is the second full-length album released by The Twilight Singers. It was released by One Little Indian Records on October 14, 2003 and features guest appearances by Mathias Schneeberger, Alvin Youngblood Hart, Stanton Moore, Petra Haden and Mark Lanegan. The album is a tribute to director Ted Demme, a close friend of Dulli's who died of a heart attack while playing a game of basketball in January 2002. Dulli had been working on another project entitled Amber Headlights (which would later see the light of day in 2005), but abandoned those sessions due to Demme's death. The recordings which followed, fueled in part by the memory of Demme, resulted in Blackberry Belle.

Contents

The album was released on vinyl over two years after the initial CD release. Pressed on white vinyl, the LP contained an extra track "Run, Rabbit Run". This is a demo version featuring Greg Dulli on piano. He was known to perform a version of this song on the last The Afghan Whigs tour.

The Twilight Singers performed the album it its entirety for the first and only time in San Francisco at the Great American Music Hall on September 17, 2011 with special guests Mark Lanegan, Petra Haden and Dave Catching joining the group on stage.
