Swinging & Soulful Organ Music on Vinyl LP!

Billy Preston's mastery of the organ was such that he was commissioned for collaboration by The Beatles, The Stones, and countless others, his classic Hammond work a defining element of Get Back.

Released in 1964 when Preston was still 19, The Most Exciting Organ Ever mixes swinging originals such as "Low Down," "Soul Meetin," "The Octopus," and "Billy's Bag" with expressively soulful covers of standards such as "If I Had a Hammer" and "Don't Let the Sun Catch You Crying," ably showcasing Preston's awesome dexterity and unmatched ability on his chosen instrument.

With every track a winner, the title rings true!

The raw physical power of Preston's performances are matched only by the imagination and virtuosity of his phrasing. The music bridges the sacred and the profane, fusing the deep, bold sound of the church with the razzle-dazzle of R&B. While Preston's innovative use of bass pedals lends the music its pendulous bottom, his melodies defy gravity, soaring and dive bombing like birds of prey in flight.
-Jason Ankeny, AllMusic, 4/5
