    Thunderclap Newman's Something in the air is a song I remember liking when it came out but it was played to death and I still can't bear to listen to it all the way though So I've gone for one I still like today, Billy Preston's That's The Way God Planned it

    It was 1969 and there were so many fantastic songs and albums around that time but this one stands out. This song was getting massive airplay around the time. Still sounds good today imo but I very rarely hear it on the radio these days. Produced by George Harrison and on the Apple label and with a very Beatles sounding backing, this song possibly features Harrison, Clapton, Keth Richards and Ginger Baker all of whom played on the album of the same name. Whatever happened to the Hammond organ in songs, seldom hear it these days.

      I'm well aware of that, you couldn't hear the song without reference to the Who at the time!!. I was referring to the Billy Preston song. I've edited my post to make it clear!

      Between finishing school and going to University, three of the albums I bought were The first (and to my mind still the best) Roxy Music album, Layla, by Derek and the Dominoes and Eat a Peach by the Allman Brothers band, all of which I still listen to now, albeit on CD.
