It's My Pleasure is the tenth studio album by Billy Preston, released in June 1975 (July in the UK) on A&M Records.[2] The album shows the modernisation of Preston's music, placing a heavier emphasis on synthesizers. It was also his first collaboration with the singer Syreeta Wright who sings on one track. The album is notable for featuring harmonica by Stevie Wonder on two tracks. George Harrison (credited as "Hari Georgeson") also appears, playing guitar on one track.[3]
