Farfisa Organ: Double Shot (of my Baby's Love)

Our next to our last excursion into Farfisa land takes us back to 1966 with The Swingin’ Medallions. The Farfisa takes a prominent role on this song that to me always sounded like a frat party. It was their only record to chart within the Top 40 – it placed at #17 on Billboard’s Hot 100. “Double Shot (of my Baby’s Love)” was originally recorded by Dick Holler and the Holidays.

The song features a great keyboard hook and the cheesy sound of the classic Farfisa Compact combo organ. Even though the band was from South Carolina, a number of stations in the South felt the lyrics were too risqué for airplay.


  1. Unfortunately, one is not available - but I'll take this as a like.

  2. Funny always thought these guys were older black vocalists.
