When I think of 60's rock tunes the first three that pop into my mind are Psychotic Reaction, Double Shot of My Baby's Love, and Dirty Water... Last night I was at a friend's house fixing his Mp3 player and showing him how to edit his play list.

As I saw his playlist was in need of some hot 60's stuff, I ran out to my jeep and got my best cd out of the player and loaded my favorite tunes onto his computer. With great joy my friend and his buddy were back in 1966! They said they never knew the names of the bands or titles of the songs so they couldn't find them to purchase...So here they are retro fans!

The Count Five-Psychotic Reaction

The band was founded in 1964 by John "Mouse" Michalski and Kenn Ellner two high school friends
who had previously played in several short-lived outfits. After going shortly under the name The Squires,
and several line-up changes later, the Count Five were born.

Roy Chaney took over bass duties, John "Sean" Byrne played rhythm guitar and lead vocals, and
Craig "Butch" Atkinson played drums. The Count Five gained distinction for their habit of wearing Count Dracula-style capes when playing live.

The Swinging Medallions
Double Shot of My Baby's Love
The Swingin' Medallions are from South Carolina.
They were first formed under the name Pieces of Eight
and changed the name to The Swingin' Medallions
in 1965 after signing with Smash Records.
"Double Shot (Of My Baby's Love)", written by Don Smith
& Cyril Vetter charted #17 in the U.S. Billboard Hot 100
in 1966.
