Billy's first two albums for Herb Alpert's A&M Records, both recorded in 1972. These recordings spawned two major hits: 'Outa-Space', a US No.2 and 'Will It Go Round In Circles', a US No.1. An accomplished performer and keyboard player, Preston earned himself musical immortality by playing on the Beatles' sessions from which 'Get Back' came. He died of kidney complications in 2006. Digitally remastered and slipcased, and with new notes.

BUT THE STANDOUT IS, AND THE REASON I'VE BEEN SEARCHING FOR THIS FOR AGES IS THIS CUT -
'MY COUNTRY TIS OF THEE'.
This rendition is so heartfelt... so rich with meaning... so emotive... it makes you truly PROUD to be an American.
I am black - and there are plenty of reasons why I could have some serious issues with this country for what it has done in the past.
But this song, handled with such raw emotion and depth of feeling by a fellow black citizen of our shared land brings tears to my eyes.
Any American who listens to this piece, this version, will too. It rivals Ray Charles 'America the beautiful'.
