AllMusic Review by

The almighty Hammond organ, equally at home in funky blues roadhouses, sanctified churches, and baseball stadiums, is one of the most iconic instruments in pop music history, right up there with the Fender Stratocaster. It has also maintained a long tradition in easy-listening music, being a key instrument in the style both before and after the rock-&-roll era. HITTING THE HAMMOND is a delightful two-CD set of easy-listening favorites performed by Hammond masters such as Jerry Allen, Jimmy Leach, and Robin Richmond.
