CD Reviews

I Wrote A Simple Song by Billy Preston
(5 out of 5 stars)

"I have spent years trying to locate this particular CD. Billy's version of Swing Low Sweet Chariot is superb. I would purchase the CD just for that one song, but the entire CD is excellent! A lover of R&B music must have this CD in his/her collection!"
Get This Album!

"Excuse the "South Park" quote, but "this kicks a..!" This is Billy Preston's debut album for A&M Records and was produced by Quincy Jones. It features George Harrison on guitar ("Simple Song") and contains virtuoso keyboard work throughout. This album convinced me to become a musician. The influence of his time with Ray Charles is clear ("Should've Known Better" and "Without A Song"). Gospel aficionados will love "God Is Great" and "Swing Down Chariot." Now, if they'd only re-release "Everybody Likes Some Kind Of Music" and "It's My Pleasure," I'd be happy."
