Liner Note Author: Bill DeYoung.
After his work with the Beatles on LET IT BE brought his name to the wider rock audience, R&B stalwart Billy Preston became one of the hottest names in 1970s funk. Like Stevie Wonder, Parliament's Bernie Worrell, and Traffic's Steve Winwood, Preston's core instrument was the electric organ, but he also experimented enthusiastically with synthesizers on instrumental hits such as "Outa-Space," "Struttin,'" and "Space Race." Those giddy, playful funk-pop tunes are a delightful addition to Preston's entry in the budget-line 20TH CENTURY MASTERS: THE MILLENNIUM COLLECTION series, but the meat of the 11-track collection is in the classic funky hits "Nothing From Nothing," "That's The Way God Planned It," and "Will It Go Round In Circles."
