Kooper plays the prominently featured organ on the almost six-minute closing track on the Who’s famous concept album. What begins sounding like a church organ switches to a loungey feel as the song progresses through its many sections. Like many of Pete Townshend’s songs, 'Rael' was conceived as part of a bigger musical piece. After Kooper had stumbled into the role of session keyboard player via Bob Dylan (see No. 1 on our list of the Top 10 Al Kooper Keyboard Songs), he thought he could use some extra practice on the instrument. So, he joined up with these Greenwich Village blues-rockers in 1965 and honed his newfound craft in concert. His high-water mark with the band came a couple years later with 'No Time Like the Right Time' from 'Live at Town Hall' (most of which was neither recorded live nor at Town Hall).
