The Funky Organ-ization of Henry Cain, as the title suggests, is a funky set of eleven Soul Jazz instrumentals recorded in 1967. A cover album performed by the obscure organist Henry Cain, from Pop, Jazz, Soul and Rhythm & Blues. Most of the tracks are arranged by Oliver Nelson and recorded with the unmistakable groovy sound of the Hammond B3. The side A begins with The Way I Feel of John Patton and includes the unforgetable classics Respect & Sunnyrespectively written by Otis Redding and Bobby Hebb, but also two reprises released by Cannonball Adderlay in live album Why Am I Treated So Bad! (1967) : Why? (Am I Treated So Bad (Pops Stapples) and I'm On My Way (Nat Adderlay Jr.). The side B contains Oliver Nelson' Critic's Choice and Horror Scope, the unique track composed by Cain for this Album. Arranged by H. B. Barnum & Oliver Nelson.
