Organ Dominated Albums

8 overlooked/underrated albums that feature effective and prominent use of the Hammond organ.
1Procol Harum
Procol Harum

Procol Harum's debut was extremely influential in the development of the progressive rock genre and one of it's best features is Matthew Fisher's
excellent organ playing.
2Atomic Rooster
Atomic Rooster

Atomic Rooster's debut is notable for feautring the drumming of future ELP drummer Carl Palmer but equally impressive was Vincent Crane's use of
the Hammond organ, which more than makes up for the album's lack of guitar playing.
3The Nice
Five Bridges

Kieth Emerson is without a doubt one of the most famous keyboard/organ players in progressive rock but the work of his pre-ELP band The Nice is
often overlooked. Five Bridges is prehaps the band's most important release as it saw Emerson's incredible playing fused together with classical music
for the first time.

Cressida are regarded by some as pioneers of symphonic prog and their distinctive sound is largely down to Peter Jenning's excellent use of the
Hammond organ, an instrument that remained prominent throughout their two studio albums despite the inclusion of orchestral arrangements.
5Fuzzy Duck
Fuzzy Duck

Fuzzy Duck were a shortlived progressive/psycedelic rock band formed in the early 70's. The band's first and only album is a hidden gem within the
progressive rock genre and a lot of it's charm is down to Roy Sharland's organ.
All Together Now

All Together Now is an interesting mix of simple, straight forward rock and more technical progressive sections. The albums more progressive
moments are largely down to the organ playing of band leader Rod Argent.
7Peter Bardens
The Answer

This interesting solo album by the Camel keyboard player features some of Bardens best organ playing. The album is also notable for featuring former
Fleetwood Mac guitarist Peter Green.
8Uriah Heep
Look at Yourself

Often overlooked in favour of the band's debut or their highly acclaimed Demons and Wizards album, Look At Yourself features some of Heep's finest
moments, some of which come as a result of Ken Hensley's excellent use of the Hammond organ, an instrument that has become an important part of
Uriah Heep's sound.
