Believe it is the first album by The New Tony Williams Lifetime, released in 1975. This is a hard-edged Fusion quartet with guitarist Allan Holdsworth, Alan Pasqua on keyboards, Tony Newton on bass, and the drummer Tony Williams.

By the time Tony Williams left Miles Davis in 1969, he had moved even farther away from the acoustic tradition than his former employer. His first recordings with his new band, Lifetime, were characterized by the sleeve instructions: "Play it Loud!"

The energy level was high and the music was infused with a Rock and Roll philosophy. Williams overpowers with his stronger sense of groove and sheer muscularity. And while he is every bit as capable of extravagant displays of technique, he always sounds musical.
