One part of the distinctive Hammond organ sound in rock/jazz is the use of a Leslie speaker cabinet. In my opinion, it is also the reason that Hammond organs were becoming less popular for mainstream music requiring big PAs and selling and broadcasting recordings. Because a Leslie speaker cannot be faithfully reproduced or simulated with reasonable effort. ...

The Go can be seen as an A7b9, which also would lead to D/Dm, but without the A, obviously. An F7 does the job, too, but needs particular melody note/s over it to sound convincing. Using a tritone substitution works as well, going from Am through Eb7 to D.

One of the properties of a fully diminished 7th chord is because it is symmetric chord, it can function as a Gdim7, Bbdim7, Dbdim7 (C#dim7), or Fbdim7 (Edim7). Since C# is the leading tone of D major/D minor this chord acts as a dominant chord to the Dm chord ...

I'm wondering about the second chord here, FABD. What exactly is this chord? In root inversion, the chord would be written BDFA. It consists of root, m3, d5, m7. Since the 5th is diminished but the 7th isn't (otherwise it would be an A♭, as you note), this chord is called a B half-diminished seventh chord. It is notated as Bm7♭5 ("B minor-7 flat-5") or ...
