The 101 number one song of the day was recorded by a man who had reached the top spot on Billboard’s Hot 100 twice before but was still working a studio musician backing some of the biggest names in show business.
His credits were found on albums by Barbra Streisand, Sly and the Family Stone, Carole King, Ringo Starr and George Harrison. He shared label credits with those last two when they were still working with their former bandmates, John Lennon and Paul McCartney. That was for Get Back which credited him at the time with being the “5th Beatle.” Today’s featured record reached number one on October 19th, 1974 and it’s today’s 101 # 1 song of the day for Billy Preston – “Nothing from Nothing”
