"The Kids and Me" is an album by Billy Preston released in 1974, after his famous tour in Europe. This album included "You Are So Beautiful", later covered by Joe Cocker, and the hit single "Nothin' From Nothin'".

The first track, "Tell Me You Need My Loving," contains the first four measures of keyboard verse from an earlier Preston song: "All That I've Got"--a bonus cut from the import version of his Encouraging Words (1970) album for Apple Records--transposed from the key of C to B. The bridge of "All That I've Got" is also revived untransposed and with identical lyrics in "Sometimes I Love You."
