The_Kids_And_Me#5 – Billy Preston – “Nothing From Nothing” – (1974)

This #1 hit from Billy Preston is a masterpiece of piano-driven soul. Billy Preston was incredibly talented (and taken too soon). He was one of only two people ever credited alongside the Beatles on one of their tracks (“Get Back”). He played with the Rolling Stones, George Harrison, and Eric Clapton. He had two #1 hits and this is his best song (of what I’ve heard). Fun fact: it was the first song ever performed live on Saturday Night Live
