Short intro

I Wrote a Simple Song is the sixth studio album by American soul musician Billy Preston. Released in November 1971, it was his first album for A&M Records and marked the start of a run of commercial success in the United States that lasted through to the late 1970s. The album includes the hit single Outa-Space, which won the Grammy Award for Best Pop Instrumental Performance of 1972. Preston included a live version of the instrumental The Bus, as part of a medley with the Beatles' Day Tripper. The album peters out due to weaker material in its final third, but Preston works well with string accompaniment on the snoozy ballad Heart Full of Sorrow and closes with the autobiographical gospel title track backed only by his acoustic piano and a little organ where he expresses his commitment to playing music and his talent as bestowed from above.
