Del Huff plays a slew of secular tunes on this LP from Hollywood’s Mark Records (undated, released perhaps in 1978, but it feels more like circa 1967-1969 to me). In anticipation of your question…the Cordovox was an organ first unleashed on the American public by the Chicago Musical Instrument Co. in 1960. There were a variety of stand-up models reminiscent of the Farfisas that dominated stage and screen in the 1960s, but as this 1977 Huff album cover demonstrates, he probably wasn’t playing one of those, but instead a Super V: a hefty electric model small enough to be carried like an accordion but which could also be mounted on a stand.
