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!

November 2016 (8 Added)

Blackbyrds, Fantasy 771
1976, Fantasy 771
Genre: Northern Soul, Philly Style
This fabulous number definitely deserves to be better known, even if you don't live in D.C. (the home of Rock Creek Park).

Ronnie Dyson, Cotillion 47005
Ronnie Dyson
1982, Cotillion 47005
Genre: Northern Soul, Philly Style
Both sides of this appealing 1982 single, one of Dyson's last chart 45s, hit the Black/RnB Singles chart. The B side is particularly sweet (have a listen to the mp3 "snippet"!) and is an edited version of the 4:10 album track.

Johnny Adams, SSS Int'l 750
Johnny Adams
1968, SSS Int'l 750
Genre: Deep Soul
The first single in Johnny Adams' string of fine soul singles for SSS Int'l in the late 1960's, this one features a terrific, smoking soul number on the B side that can't be missed!

Ronnie Love, Dot 16144
Ronnie Love
1961, Dot 16144
Genre: Other Northern Soul
Excellent, toe-tappin' soul/RnB rarity from 1961. Originally released a few months earlier as by "Johnny Love" on Startime 5001.

Five Stairsteps & Cubie, Curtom 1933
Five Stairsteps & Cubie
1968, Curtom 1933
Genre: Northern Soul, Motown Style
This exciting tracks takes its cue from Motown singles like "This Old Heart Of Mine" by the Isleys... have a listen to the mp3 "snippet" to hear what I mean.

Nancy Adams, RCA 8354
Nancy Adams
1964, RCA 8354
Genre: RnB
Someone has called the A side vibe "Soul-Jazz", and that's not far off. Whatever you call it, this is an attention-getting number you won't want to miss!

Gene Chandler, Chi-Sound 2451
Gene Chandler
1980, Chi-Sound 2451
Genre: Northern Soul, Philly Style
This modest hit single has two great sides... check out the B side snippet!

Luther Vandross, Cotillion 44216
Luther Vandross
1977, Cotillion 44216
Genre: Northern Soul, Philly Style
This single's A side barely charted, but that doesn't keep a good 45 down! With a B side like this, who needs an A side anyway? Have a listen to the mp3 "snippet", and you'll understand why this single is so highly sought after. This early single is credited simply to "Luther."
