The Joy of 45 Collecting: Lost 45 Tunes Not Available from iTunes, Spotify, or Similar Services

Jukebox "Snippet" 45s:
Chronological List of Site Additions

As I add 45s to our inventory, I pick select 45s to highlight with mp3 "snippets" so you can hear the music yourself. I only record "snippets" of tunes I particularly like, ones I think have been under-played and under-appreciated, or ones that are so rare and wonderful I'll never hear them otherwise. For myself, I keep an iTunes playlist of these "snippets," and that playlist is one I listen to most often. These pages chronicle the mp3 "snippets" I've added to our online "jukebox" in reverse chronological order. You can browse the pages to see what was added and when. Click on the blue "Play" button to play the snippet, or click on a song's title to load the page. Many of these 45 records are still for sale, though just as many have been sold. I hope you enjoy perusing these pages as much as I have enjoyed putting them together!

March 2017 (15 Added)

Tanya Tucker, MCA 40444
Tanya Tucker
1975, MCA 40444
Genre: Country
Here's a beautiful copy of this terrific 1975 Country chart-topper, which Dave Marsh honors by including it in his list of the 1,001 greatest 45s.

TLC, LaFace 24107
1995, LaFace 24107
Genre: Funk/Hip-Hop/Go-Go
This terrific single, recently covered in a fine rendition by the coaches on the TV show "The Voice", has an edited version of a 4:39 album track.

The Dells, 20th Century 2475
The Dells
1980, 20th Century 2475
Genre: Northern Soul, Philly Style
This late single wan't a hit, since it plugged the decent but not particularly remarkable, mellow A side. If DJs had turned the thing over, they would have discovered a Northern Soul dancer that simply can't be ignored — Arranged by Sonny Sanders, it will fill the dance floor if you give it a try. Awesome! Have a listen to the mp3 "snippet" to hear what I mean. By the way, as a B side it was somehow left out of the Dells catalog on iTunes, so you won't find it there!

Waylon Jennings, RCA 10020
Waylon Jennings
1974, RCA 10020
Genre: Country
This terrific Country rocker was Jennings' second straight #1 hit, and it deserves to be better known than it is. No relation to the Allman Bros. tune, by the way. :-) Have a listen to the mp3 "snippet"!

Chuck Berry, Chess 1747
Chuck Berry
1960, Chess 1747
Genre: Rock 'n' Roll
"Let It Rock," the originally intended A side of this two-hit single, is the side honored by Dave Marsh, who pegs the song at #554 in his list of the 1,001 greatest 45s. (The "B" side, "Too Pooped To Pop", got higher on the Billboard chart.)

Miller Sisters, GMC 10006
Miller Sisters
1967, GMC 10006
Genre: Other Northern Soul
This single's A side is a dynamite Northern Soul dancer well worth seeking out... have a listen to the mp3 "snippet" to hear that pounding bass and rhythm section — Awesome!

Fantastic Four, Eastbound 620
Fantastic Four
1974, Eastbound 620
Genre: Other Northern Soul
This terrific uptempo Northern Soul number is well worth seeking out... have a listen to the mp3 "snippet" to hear what I mean! By the way, this was a non-album single, and you won't find it on iTunes as a result.

Jean Carn, Phil. Int'l. 3614
Jean Carn
1977, Phil. Int'l. 3614
Genre: Northern Soul, Philly Style
This terrific Philly-style dance number was Carn's first chart single and became one of her biggest and most enduring hits.

Josie Cotton, Elektra 47481
Josie Cotton
1982, Elektra 47481
Genre: Girl Group
This terrific single, sounding a lot like the Go-Go's, is pressed on pink vinyl.

McKinley Mitchell, Chimneyville 10213
McKinley Mitchell
1977, Chimneyville 10213
Genre: Other Northern Soul
Don't miss the terrific B side on this one ("Days...") ... it's got a rhythm section that just won't quit!

Wilson Pickett, Verve 10378
Wilson Pickett
1966, Verve 10378
Genre: Other Northern Soul
These tracks were first released on small labels in 1962, and apparently Verve bought the rights and released them again at the height of Pickett's Atlantic career. No matter that they didn't chart, they're both well worth seeking out — especially the B side ("Boy").

Johnnie Taylor, Stax 0085
Johnnie Taylor
1971, Stax 0085
Genre: Funky Soul
Don't miss Taylor's big 1971 hit... terrific Funky Soul number.

Dusty Springfield, Atlantic 2706
Dusty Springfield
1970, Atlantic 2706
Genre: Northern Soul, Philly Style
Radio just couldn't figure out how to process this terrific Philly-Soul dancer, courtesy of Gamble & Huff, so it just barely cracked the Billboard Hot 100 and didn't get any airplay at all in the Black/RnB radio market. Yet have a listen to the mp3 "snippet"... It takes a few rounds to really get a dance groove going, but once it does... Man, what a great sound! Who would guess it was a white gal up there singing her heart out? Dusty Springfield just doesn't get enough respect for her Soul singing, and here's some proof for how great she was.

The Traditions, Bar Clay 19678
The Traditions
1967, Bar Clay 19678
Genre: Other Northern Soul
This rare 1967 single features a terrific Northern Soul dancer with a killer rhythm section. Have a listen to the mp3 "snippet" to hear what I mean.

Los Lobos, Slash/WB 28464
Los Lobos
1988, Slash/WB 28464
Genre: Rockabilly/Retro
How this one failed to chart remains a mystery... It's not only very catchy, but is also one of the best portraits of the American experience ever recorded, relevant to this day.
