Thanks for this. I listened to the songs. It sounds like Christine is handling the acoustic piano on these songs whereas a certain Brian Auger is handling the organ duties. The performers listed on the final song for exampleóa pianist and organist are playing simultaneously

Thanks. Christine's organ playing is quite different than the other organist's on these sessions.

From what I can tell, on most tracks, she is playing the piano. I'm assuming the instruments were recorded live (sans overdubs?) so she sometimes plays piano alongside another organ part.
