Subtitled: Complete Vee-Jay Recordings 1964/1965. Beatles 5th member early works! Although probably best known through this fact, a smashing number like "Billy's Bag" is a chance to showcase Billy Preston as a talented man in his own right. In the early '60s Preston had already made a name for himself as a very fine piano and Hammond organ player of soul/jazz/R&Bb, recording for such artistes as Sam Cooke or Little Richard. Preston's VeeJay solo recordings (all of them available here) made it to the Go-Go Clubs and Mod Joints all over the world as absolute "Winners" such as "The Birds & The Bees," "Shotgun" "The Octopus" and the self written "monster" "Billy's Bag." Contains both (Exciting Organ and Hits of 1965) albums and an extra track.
