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!

New Riders of the Purple Sage
1971, Columbia 45526
Genre: Country Rock
Indispensable country-rock classic... this was the second New Riders single released from the band's first LP, when the the band included Jerry Garcia from the Grateful Dead on pedal steel and banjo. This great, Dead-sounding track was written by singer/guitarist John Dawson.

Fifth Dimension
1967, Soul City 753
Genre: Sunshine Pop
Here's a beautiful copy of the group's first chart single — and my personal favorite of their catalog. Note that it's written by none other than John Phillips, the lead Papa who wrote such classics as "Monday, Monday" and "California Dreamin."

Shannon
1983, Mirage 99810
Genre: Disco
An absolutely essential post-disco classic from 1983. If this don't get you movin', you're dead!

James Gang
1970, ABC 11272
Genre: Hard Rock/Metal
This, the group's first single to crack the Hot 100, was a new version of Funk #48, which they released the previous year on Bluesway. Both are to-die-for classics of guitar rock, showcases for Joe Walsh.

Simon & Garfunkel
1966, Columbia 44046
Genre: Folk Rock
This flip of "A Hazy Shade Of Winter" is one of fans' most beloved Simon & Garfunkel tunes.

Genre: Vocal Groups (Doo-Wop)
"My Juanita" is a to-die-for example of late 1950's uptempo Doo-Wop.

This late single finds the group veering into Northern Soul from their Doo Wop roots.

Bobby Rydell
1959, Cameo 167
Genre: Rock 'n' Roll
Bobby Rydell's first hit is definitely the one to own... his very best. Having a great backing band helped... On these tracks, it was Georgie Young & the Rockin Bocs.

Lillian Briggs
1955, Epic 9115
Genre: Jazz
Briggs was a white big-band singer... here she really rocks out in an RnB style, singing a Louis Jordan number from a couple of years before.

Honey & The Bees
1969, Arctic 158
Genre: Funky Soul
Yes, the tender, classic ballad "Sunday" was actually the plug side of the rare single, but it's the funky soul on the B side that gets a 45 collector's motor racing. Hmmm!

The Innovation
1968, Amy 11032
Genre: Garage/Psych
This single is a rare Ellie Greenwich production, featuring a self-penned tune on the A side. Of course, Greenwich, together with Jeff Barry, was one of the preeminent songwriters of the 1960's, with a list of credits way too long to show here. Greenwich also helped out some garage bands in the late 1960's, and this obscure group was one of them.

Piano Red
1954, RCA EPA-587
Genre: Rockin' RnB
This EP has 4 great songs: Rockin' With Red, I'm Gonna Rock Some More, Red's Boogie, and Diggin' the Boogie. The 45 "Rockin' With Red" hit #5r in December 1950, and its flip, "Red's Boogie," hit #4r in February 1951. It's hard to imagine New Orleans rock 'n' roll without these seminal tunes.

Jonathan Edwards
1973, Atco 6911

Edwards had much more great music under his belt than his one hit ("Sunshine"), and this is just a taste... Enjoy!

Carole Quinn
1965, MGM 13326
Genre: Other Northern Soul
This is one of those many dynamite mid-1960s soul singles by artists who've now faded into obscurity. Carole and her backup singers sound very much like a Supremes knock-off, down to the patented Motown beat. Undoubtedly this would be great at a dance club!
