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!

Joni Mitchell, Asylum 11041
10/23/16
Joni Mitchell
1974, Asylum 11041
Genre: Folk Rock
The hit A side ("Free Man In Paris") is a delightful pop tune, but the real treasure here is the B side. (Yes, it's another one of those!) If you've ever felt a little awkward and out of place at a party, you'll know just what she's talking about! One of Mitchell's very best pieces of pure poetry... have a listen to the mp3 "snippet" to hear what I mean. It's also one of those very short songs I sing the praises of — she sings an entire volume in under 2 1/2 minutes!

I was so taken with this single's A side that I had to rush-release an mp3 "snippet" for you to hear... Enjoy!

This is a to-die-for northern soul track that was pretty much ignored when released... time for a revival! Have a listen to the mp3 "snippet" to hear what I mean.

Genre: Other Northern Soul
To understand why this terrific single is so sought-after (and hard to find!), check out the mp3 "snippet" for the B side (which by the way isn't available through iTunes or other online services for some reason): "House on Soul Hill" is one for the ages!

Bobby Kline
1967, MB 1001
Genre: Other Northern Soul
Here's an extremely rare Northern Soul single that can command eye-popping values when it's offered. Both sides are dynamite dancers, but frankly I put my money on the B side with its powerful rhythm section.

The Latons
1961, Port 70030

This single's A side is only 1:40 long, but it packs a lot of Doo Wop bass vocal goodness in that span... Have a listen to the mp3 "snippet"!

Buffalo Springfield, Atco 6615

Buffalo Springfield
1968, Atco 6615

This was the last of the group's five chart singles.... a surprising, almost sunshine-pop-style tune from Neil Young.

Nashville Teens
1964, London 9689

Quintessential early hard-rock guitar intro... major fodder for the U.S. garage group movement. Check out the mp3 "snippet" to hear what I mean.

Freddie Scott, Shout 216

Freddie Scott
1967, Shout 216
Genre: Other Northern Soul
The A ("Plug") side is a decent cover of the Curtis Mayfield-penned classic "He Will Break Your Heart", but again it's the B side that draws collector interest today: "I'll Be Gone" is a too-short but dynamite Northern Soul dancer with a propulsive beat you won't want to miss!

Mac Davis, Columbia 10418

Mac Davis
1976, Columbia 10418
Genre: Other Northern Soul
This single's A side is a very nice number in Davis' usual Country vein, but it turns out that the album that contains these tunes was recorded at Fame studios under Rick Hall's direction. Even so, the B side is a totally unexpected revelation: A terrific Northern Soul-style dancer that you won't want to miss! Have a listen to the mp3 "snippet" to hear what I mean. What may be surprising is that the tune is not available on iTunes along with most of Davis' catalog!
