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!

Ann Peebles, Hi 77502
08/31/15
Ann Peebles
1977, Hi 77502
Genre: Other Northern Soul
Willie Mitchell pulled a winner out of his deep coat pockets when he paired Ann Peebles with this swinging Soul tune... An instantly likable number whose happy uptempo music belies the underlying story of a love gone wrong. This is one of the most popular Peebles tracks among Northern Soul aficionados... have a listen to the mp3 snippet we added to the Classic 45s "Jukebox".

Jimmy & Vella Cameron, Reprise 0483
08/26/15
Jimmy & Vella Cameron
1966, Reprise 0483
Genre: Other Northern Soul
What a great surprise this obscure Soul single turns out to be! Both sides are dynamite Northern Soul dancers, with a particularly memorable A side featuring a muscular bass line that just won't quit!

Herman's Hermits, MGM 13280
08/25/15
Herman's Hermits
1965, MGM 13280
Genre: Sunshine Pop
Here's a beautiful copy of Herman's Hermits' debut single, which went to #1 in the U.K., becoming their only chart-topper there. Is this their best single? It's certainly a contender. "Something Good" — yet another terrific Carole King - Gerry Goffin song — was originally recorded (in a good but inferior version) by Earl-Jean.

The Beatles, Capitol 5587
08/24/15
The Beatles
1966, Capitol 5587
Genre: Power Pop
This one is worth praising for the terrific guitar bits Harrison concocts, blueprints for the guitar-driven Power Pop sound that coalesces in the 1970s and continues to this day. Have a listen to the mp3 "snippet" to hear it.

Adam's Apples, Brunswick 78025
08/19/15
Adam's Apples
1967, Brunswick 78025
Genre: Other Northern Soul
This group only released a couple of singles, and they're all keepers! This one's another to-die-for Northern Soul rarity that only ardent fans know about. Have a listen to the mp3 snippet, and see why Soul fans go nuts for Adam's Apples singles. :-)

Paul Simon, Columbia 45547
08/18/15
Paul Simon
1972, Columbia 45547
Genre: Reggae/Ska
Paul Simon was one of the first non-Reggae artists to flirt with the reggae sound, and this is a damned good experiment, if you ask me! I'm always shocked to hear the incredibly powerful Stereo mix that they pressed these 7-inch releases with: Loud is simply not sufficient to describe the enormity of what's in these little grooves. The mp3 snippet I've provided doesn't do it justice, but hopefully you'll get the idea. :-)

Chuck Berry, Chess 1799
08/14/15
Chuck Berry
1961, Chess 1799
Genre: Rock 'n' Roll
Here's a Chuck Berry song I've only heard through greatest hits compilations like the excellent "The Great Twenty Eight", which thoughtfully preserved the original Mono mixes. "Come On" is a 2-minute wonder (1:53 actually) that should have been a hit! Don't be fooled into thinking this single is a throwaway because it failed to chart... It's an essential part of any complete Chuck Berry collection.

Bo Diddley, Checker 924
08/14/15
Bo Diddley
1959, Checker 924
Genre: Rockin' RnB
One of Bo Diddley's most sought-after singles, this one, oddly enough was his first to hit the Billboard Hot 100 Singles chart. None of Diddley's previous classics (including "I'm A Man" and "Bo Diddley") got that far. Simply quintessential Bo Diddley, this is the first copy (original or reissue) I've been able to offer in the store.

The Jivers, Aladdin 3347
08/14/15
The Jivers
1956, Aladdin 3347
Genre: Vocal Groups (Doo-Wop)
This is a new on one me, and it instantly called out to Jackie and me: "Make a snippet of me!" So I did... Enjoy!

Dee Dee Sharp, Atco 6502
08/12/15
Dee Dee Sharp
1967, Atco 6502
Genre: Other Northern Soul
This single is sought after mainly for the amazing B side dancer, which I liked so much right away I had to put a snippet of it in the "jukebox!" Although the A side is quite good, the B side is so obviously wonderful I'm surprised no one thought to "Plug" it instead. Both of these are early writing credits for Kenny Gamble & Leon Huff, who went on to craft a sound that became one of the foundations of Philly Soul.

Tommy Hunt, Scepter 1231
08/12/15
Tommy Hunt
1962, Scepter 1231
Genre: Other Northern Soul
This rarely seen, uncharacteristic rocker has a distinctive Northern Soul groove — making it perhaps the most desirable Tommy Hunt single for Northern Soul fans.

Patti Austin, Coral 62536
08/11/15
Patti Austin
1967, Coral 62536
Genre: Other Northern Soul
Yes, the A side ("A Million To One") is a nice Soul ballad, but the reason Northern Soul fans seek out this rarely seen Austin single is the tremendous dance number on the flip (have a listen to the mp3 snippet)!

Prime Cut, Shady Brook 003
08/10/15
Prime Cut
1974, Shady Brook 003
Genre: Northern Soul, Philly Style
This is the kind of instantly likeable and imminently danceable Soul rarity I'm constantly on the prowl for. There's still such a vast universe of 1970s Soul that lies unexplored (by me), and so much of it is like this one: Catchy and fun, great arrangements and vocals, and irresistible rhythm tracks. Plus, it's a nice love song, too!

Dave Dee, Dozy, Beaky, Mick and Tich, Imperial 66270

Dave Dee, Dozy, Beaky, Mick and Tich
1968, Imperial 66270
Genre: Sunshine Pop
This song is just wonderfully strange. :-) This audio is so clean I decided to make a snippet, so if you don't already know and love "Zabadak," have a listen! The song takes a number of twists and turns during its entire 3:40 length (long for 1968!)... the snippet captures the first 1:45.

Fleetwood Mac, Reprise 1339
08/07/15
Fleetwood Mac
1975, Reprise 1339
Genre: Folk Rock
The single has a slightly different—and shorter—mix than the longer (3:38) LP cut. This was the tune that got the Fleetwood Mac hit machine rolling in the mid- to late-1970's. It's also perhaps my personal favorite cut from their first album in their revitalized configuration (with Stevie Nicks and Lindsey Buckingham added to the mix). Interesting to note that that album, simply called Fleetwood Mac, generated three Top 20 singles, but none that made the Top 10 in Billboard's Hot 100 chart:
  • Over My Head (#20, released November 2005)
  • Rhiannon (#11, released March 2006)
  • Say You Love Me (#11, released July 2006)

Don Gardner, Tru-Glo-Town 501
08/05/15
Don Gardner
1966, Tru-Glo-Town 501
Genre: Other Northern Soul
"Boogaloo" is considered the A side of this single purely on the strength of that raw guitar/bass line that underpins the rare Northern Soul dance number.

Ernestine Eady, Junior 1007
08/05/15
Ernestine Eady
1965, Junior 1007
Genre: Other Northern Soul
Both sides of this rare single deserve serious listening, but it's the A side, "The Change," that really grabs your attention. No wonder it's highly sought after... Have listen, and you'll hear why!

Jackie Wilson, Brunswick 55239
08/03/15
Jackie Wilson
1963, Brunswick 55239
Genre: Other Northern Soul
Here's a beautiful, pristine Mint copy of this essential early Soul classic, which Dave Marsh pegs at #758 in his Top 1,001 Singles list. This copy's audio is so pure, the music so joyous, and Wilson's voice so magical, I had to capture the audio for my iTunes library. Then I realized I had very little Jackie Wilson in the Classic 45s "Jukebox," so I added an mp3 snippet for you to enjoy!
