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!

Faron Young, Capitol 3056
Faron Young
1955, Capitol 3056
Genre: Country
This great tune was Faron Young's first #1 country hit.

The Devastating Affair, Motown 1321
The Devastating Affair
1974, Motown 1321
Genre: Soul Instrumentals
This amazing, compelling instrumental is simply too "different" to describe in words... so have a listen to the mp3 "snippet" and see if you don't come away wanting to hear more! As I say, really compelling! By the way, I checked, and this is getting added to my growing list of "lost tunes"... songs that aren't available in iTunes. Also, there was a vocal version of this number, but apparently Motown decided to promote the backing instrumental over the vocal version at some point.

Out of Stock

Donovan, Epic 10510
1969, Epic 10510
Genre: Garage/Psych
This late Donovan single is a sparkling gem, with two must-have tracks credited to Donovan with the Jeff Beck Group.

Out of Stock

Linda Jones, Loma 2070
Linda Jones
1967, Loma 2070
Genre: Other Northern Soul
Although the A side ("Hypnotized") was Jones' biggest hit, it's the B side that Northern Soul fans are looking for: It's a dynamite, uptempo dancer you won't want to miss! Have a listen to the mp3 "snippet" to hear what I'm talking about. :-)

Out of Stock

Pearl Woods, Crackerjack 4004
Pearl Woods
1962, Crackerjack 4004
Genre: Other Northern Soul
This single's A side is a terrific number in the "Popcorn" style, while this flip is an equally strong Northern Soul dancer.

In Stock

The Chantay's, Dot 16440
The Chantay's
1963, Dot 16440
Genre: Surf/Cars
This great 45 contains one of the best surf instrumentals of all (which ranks at #81 on Dave Marsh's list of the 1,001 greatest singles).

In Stock

Ricky Nelson, Imperial 5503
Ricky Nelson
1958, Imperial 5503
Genre: Rockabilly/Retro
It's true that Nelson was backed by one of the hottest rockabilly bands around. This track is clear evidence of this... That guitar is Smokin!

Out of Stock

Freddy Fender, ABC-Dot 17540
Freddy Fender
1975, ABC-Dot 17540
Genre: Country
The song "Before The Next Teardrop Falls," the hit that finally gave Fender a national audience after years (his first chart single was in 1960 on Imperial!) of him working mainly in RnB and Rockabilly grooves, its arrangement, and Fender's tender, yet passionate expression of love for his "one that got away", strikes a chord in me that can literally render me speechless, I'm so moved. Enjoy!

In Stock

Statler Brothers, Columbia 43315
Statler Brothers
1965, Columbia 43315
Genre: Folk Rock
One of my all-time favorite Statler Bros. tunes... a top, 2-star recommendation for fans of Folk Rock or even of Country or Country Rock.

In Stock

Randy Travis, WB 28384
Randy Travis
1987, WB 28384
Genre: Country
Randy Travis' third #1 Country hit stayed on top for 3 weeks and became one of the very best moments of his impressive career.

In Stock

The Brains, Mercury 76065
The Brains
1980, Mercury 76065
Genre: Punk/Grunge
If you love the sound of proto-punk, a la The Smiths, Undertones et al, you won't want to miss this essential classic! It was later covered and became a hit for Cyndi Lauper.

Out of Stock

Ben E. King, Atco 6194
Ben E. King
1961, Atco 6194
Genre: Other Northern Soul
This is the nicest original pressing of this early Soul classic I've yet had to offer in the store... pristine Mint audio!

Out of Stock

Jackie Wilson, Brunswick 55354
Jackie Wilson
1967, Brunswick 55354
Genre: Other Northern Soul
This single has two terrific uptempo sides, but it's the B side ("Who Who") that really grabbed my attention on first listening. Have a listen to the mp3 snippet to hear why!

Out of Stock

Carl Hall, Mercury 72396
Carl Hall
1965, Mercury 72396
Genre: Other Northern Soul
This guy didn't get any chart love for his many singles, but Northern Soul fans ignore them at their own peril: This is another dynamite dancer!
