Re-post: Billy Preston - Encouraging Words (1970)

EAC | CD Image | WV+CUE+LOG+Covers | 363 mb+3% recovery

Encouraging Words is steeped in exemplary playing and songwriting… and pure soul. Produced by George Harrison and packed with originals and inspired covers, including 'My Sweet Lord' and 'All Things (Must) Pass' - donated by George before he released them himself - and the little-heard Harrison-Preston gospel hymn 'Sing One For The Lord'. This is Billy on the launch pad just before he rocketed to U.S. No.2 success with 'Outta Space' for A&M Records.
