Park South's collection of Billy Preston performances, titled King of the Road, is an interesting concept in that all of these tracks feature Preston on the organ, and all are instrumental readings of classic covers, such as "Eight Days a Week," "Downtown," and "Stop! In the Name of Love." The recording quality is rather mediocre, but Preston and the band are in fine form. However, those looking for a good overview of Preston's remarkable talent should consider either Hip-O's Ultimate Collection or 20th Century Masters — The Millennium Collection on A&M would be much better choices.
