Encouraging Words

Encouraging Words is an album by Billy Preston released in 1970. Preston worked closely with George Harrison on the album, who contributed guitar, co-produced, co-wrote a song with Preston, and contributed two of his own songs which were yet to be released. It retained the all-star personnel of 1969's "That's The Way God Planned It", featuring Eric Clapton as well as Harrison on guitar, Keith Richards on bass and Ginger Baker on drums. The album is typical of Preston's blend of soul and rock, highlighted by his powerful voice and virtuoso organ and piano playing.
