Recommend tracks with Hammond organ buildups

I absolutely love tracks that build up with a huge sounding organ bed and full on Leslie cab wobble.
With a particular lean towards sad songs like these:

ever heard this?


Billy Preston is king


I didn’t even mean this tune (though it does have Preston playing organ on it), I meant I Got The Blues off Sticky Fingers.

I def think that second Girls album was channeling that era of the Stones where they were essentially a great Stax soul band with gospel singers, organ, horns etc.


dunno if this is what you’re after, but I’ve always loved the Hammond coming in on Goin’ Home:

Pretty much just one big buildup

Excellent thread! Does ‘Heart of the Sunrise’ by Yes count? Can’t remember a specific build-up, but the organ in it is fantastic.

Can’t go wrong with Foreplay

Right, thanks all. Playlist loaded and leaving the office.
