Description

Billy Preston - You are so beautiful (live) (video/audio edited & restored) HQ/HD

-

"You Are So Beautiful" is a song written by Billy Preston and Bruce Fisher. Dennis Wilson of the Beach Boys contributed to the song's genesis, but his official credit was omitted. It was first recorded by Preston and made popular by Joe Cocker.

Preston's original version first appeared on his 1974 album The Kids & Me and as the B-side on the 45rpm pressing of his pop hit, "Struttin'". Cocker's producer, Jim Price, created a slowed-down arrangement for Cocker's version, which first appeared on the album, I Can Stand a Little Rain (released later in 1974).

In 1975, the Joe Cocker version was released as a single and peaked number 5 on the Billboard Hot 100 singles chart and number 12 on the Easy Listening chart. The Cocker version helped the album become successful and was his biggest hit until his duet with Jennifer Warnes, "Up Where We Belong", which reached #1 in 1982.
