Farley Parkenfarker - Burning Love
(Farley Parkenfarker Plays Elvis, 1978)

Prolific writer and performer Okie Duke disappeared mysteriously sometime in the 1970's. He resurfaced years later as the zany Farley Parkenfarker, playing tunes on a one-of-a-kind modified Hammond B-3 organ that had the ability to key up to 15 synthesizers via a custom reed system. "It’s one heck of an act" wrote a columnist in Palm Springs Sun, "but the guy needs a more sophisticated name."
