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!

Paul Simon
1973, Columbia 45900
Genre: Folk Rock
This third single from Paul Simon's second solo album, "There Goes Rhymin' Simon," is incredibly hard to find in decent condition. It wasn't a big hit like the previous two singles ("Kodachrome" and "Loves Me Like A Rock"), but as a song, it tops both of those, IMHO, and doesn't get nearly enough play. As one of Simon's very best songs, I give the single two stars (our highest recommendation). According to Joel Whitburn, the music is based on J.S. Bach's 'O Sacred Heart.'

C.J. & Co.
1977, Westbound 55400
Genre: Disco
Classic Disco! You can't help but dance once this one starts... By the way, this hit single version is specially edited from a 7:14 album track.

John Lee Hooker
1962, Vee Jay 438
Genre: Blues/Blues Rock
Here's a very nice copy of this iconic 1962 Blues track, which Rolling Stone magazine pegs at #220 on its Top 500 Songs list. This single version is specially edited from a longer (3:32) album track, about a minute shorter... Concentrated goodness! Even though the audio on this copy is slightly less than Near Mint, it's so powerful I thought an mp3 "snippet" for our "jukebox" was in order, so enjoy!

The Sweet
1973, Bell 45251
Genre: Hard Rock/Metal
Besides the hit side ("Little Willy"), be sure to also check out this catchy, harder-rocking B side, which is why I rate this single 2 stars! Have a listen to the mp3 "snippet" which I finally got around to posting.

Boston
1977, Epic 50381
Genre: Power Pop
This essential Boston single is one of my personal favorites, though not one of the band's biggest hits.

Timi Yuro
1965, Mercury 72478
Genre: Other Northern Soul
I don't know how radio missed out on this, but for some reason neither of these dynamite sides charted here in the U.S. This A side, by the way, is so short (despite what the label says... 2:03, it's really only 1:43!) that I made a snippet of just about the entire thing, fading it out just a bit early.

First Choice
1973, Philly Groove 175
Genre: Northern Soul, Motown Style
This terrific 1973 hit is a perfect example of how a Motown- and Philly-style Soul sound morphed into what became known as Disco. But at this early date, it was just another Motown soundalike with a bit more percussion than usual. An essential touchstone in early 1970s Soul music history. Oddly, since by 1973 most U.S. retail 45s were released in Stereo, the retail release for this tune has a Mono mix, and I believe this rare promo is the only place you can get a true Stereo mix on 45 rpm vinyl, which is awesome! Check out the mp3 "snippet" of it in our online "jukebox."

This terrific dancer is specially edited from a 7:53 album track. Well worth seeking out... check out the mp3 "snippet" of it!

Sweet Rock
1972, Music Merchant 1006
Genre: Southern Rock
The A side is so terrific I had to have an mp3 "snippet" of it in our online "jukebox"... so have a listen! By the way, the group had no albums... just this and perhaps one other single. And you won't find the tune in iTunes or Spotify... you gotta get the 45!

I'm celebrating the awesome audio on this copy by making an mp3 "snippet" of this 1961 RnB Instrumental classic.
