I can give you two, both from Gone Troppo:

"I Really Love You" and "Baby Don't Run Away".

I Really Love You features Ray Cooper on "feet". Baby Don't Run Away has good old Billy Preston on backing vocals.

I thought of "I Really Love You" when I placed this trivia. I 'll have to check on the other tune.

Congrats for demolishing what I thought would be a "toughie" [:)]

You brought up a subject that interests me: Good Old Billy Preston.
Probably one of George's closest collaborators and musical friend, his career stalled when he was put in prison for....what, rape !!??
And recently he was in hospital battling some serious illness.
Any recent scoop on him ? I find it REALLY SAD that Billy's life went in turmoil and took all those wrong turns. Such a great musician ....[:(] but most probably he himself is to blame. Just sad.

Old Billy looked pretty good at the GH tribute concert.

He also was busted for drugs (cocaine, crack?) not too long ago. Very truly sad indeed.

When people refer to Billy, instantly "Get Back" on rooftop concert comes to my mind...Billy playing his electric piano along the Lads...just HISTORICAL.[8D]

Peace.

Funnily enough, Billy played at the Royal Festival Hall in London last weekend - and Macca was in the audience..... [:)]
