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!

Steve Earle
1986, MCA 52856
Genre: Rockabilly/Retro
Yeah, I know this is a Country song, but it's also retro-Rockabilly in my book. Whatever you call it, it's so perfect it just cries out for an mp3 "snippet" in our jukebox... so here is one: Have a listen!

08/30/17, 1988
1988, A&M 1215
Genre: Country
This Austin, TX, band had modest success in the late 1980s with 2 albums and 4 singles... this being the first single. Judging from these terrific tracks, including the title song from their first LP, the band deserved better airplay than they got. Have a listen to the mp3 "snippet" of the A side.

Dyke and the Blazers
1970, Original Sound 96
Genre: Funky Soul
Here's a gorgeous copy of this highly sought-after Dyke & the Blazers single, in its original Original Sound factory sleeve. Have a listen to the mp3 "snippet", and I think you'll agree this very short song is one great slice of Funky Soul!

Carol Lynn Townes
1984, Polydor 881008
Genre: Techno/Synth Pop
This appealing Techno/Disco dancer cried out for an mp3 "snippet" so you can have a listen... Enjoy!

The Dells
1977, Mercury 73909
Genre: Northern Soul, Philly Style
I liked this terrific Philly-style dancer so much on first listen I quickly made an mp3 "snippet" for you to hear... quite special!

08/12/17, 1969
Desmond Dekker & the Aces
1969, Uni 55129
Genre: Reggae/Ska
Viewed as a novelty single when it hit the charts in 1969, "Israelites" proved to be one of the most enduring pure Reggae classics and as a groundbreaker that opened the doors to the Jamaican music in the U.S. The track is the work of legendary Reggae producer Leslie Kong. I finally gave in to its infectious rhythms and made an mp3 "snippet" for our "jukebox"... This copy has such great audio it seemed only appropriate to celebrate it, so enjoy!

08/11/17, 1972
April Wine
1972, Big Tree 133
Genre: Hard Rock/Metal
Top notch early hard rock single from this Canadian group, which returned with a string of hits in the late 1970's. We like the A side so much it earns a 2-star recommendation (our highest)... Check out the mp3 "snippet" of "Lady".

08/10/17, 1967
Barbara Lewis
1967, Atlantic 2400
Genre: Other Northern Soul
This obscure Barbara Lewis single deserved better, as it features two dynamite, uptempo Northern Soul tracks you won't want to be without! Check out the mp3 "snippet" of the A side.

The Kendalls
1980, Ovation 1143
Genre: Country
This terrific Bob McDill tune was one the Kendalls' biggest hits. And deservedly so... check out the mp3 "snippet" of it.

The Chiffons
1963, Laurie 3179
Genre: Girl Group
This is an original 1963 pressing with the powerful Mono mix. I'm celebrating the awesome ear-candy experience listening to this copy with its flawless audio by making an mp3 "snippet" for you to hear. Keep in mind, it's a greatly compressed version of what you'll actually hear from the 45 itself... but ain't it grand? :-)

In Stock

08/08/17, 1964
Neil Sedaka
1964, RCA 8382
Genre: Sunshine Pop
This one deserved much more airplay than it got at the time... I guess Sedaka seemed kind of anachronistic in the summer of the Beatles. This would have been a great hit for the Four Seasons, clearly... a really wonderful uptempo Sedaka classic. Check out the mp3 "snippet" to hear for yourself!

08/03/17, 1971
Freddie Hart
1971, Capitol 3115
Genre: Country
Would you believe this is the first collectable original copy of Freddie Hart's big 1971 hit I've yet had in the store since opening in 2001? I love it so much I had to celebrate by making an mp3 "snippet" for our "jukebox"... so have a listen!

08/02/17, 1965
Lee Dorsey
1965, Amy 927
Genre: Funky Soul
In listening to the gorgeous audio, I noted that the mix is slightly different from the version I'm used to, which is from a Lee Dorsey compilation album. Check out the mp3 "snippet" to hear it.

08/01/17, 1981
1981, Salsoul 2146
Genre: Northern Soul, Philly Style
This was the studio group's only chart single, and it's a doozy! Irresistible Funk/Soul dance rhythms ensure a full dance floor.
