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!

Dwight Twilley
1975, Shelter 40380
Genre: Power Pop
One of the very best moments of 1975, yet simply not played enough anymore. I just had to treat myself to a jukebox snippet tonight! Twilley & his band were a bit of anomaly at the time, since their music is an amalgam of Rockabilly and Power Pop. Take a listen to the fade-out chorus to "I'm On Fire" sometime, and you'll definitely recognize the influence of the most popular Power Pop band of all time: The Beatles.

Bob Lind
1966, World Pacific 77808
Genre: Folk Rock
Be sure to check out the B side of this great single ("Elusive Butterfly")... one of my personal favorite sunshine pop tracks, with a hook that just won't quit!

Little Richard
1957, Specialty 598
Genre: Rock 'n' Roll
Besides ranking "Lucille" at #670, Dave Marsh ranks the flip, "Send Me Some Lovin'," at #831 in his list of the 1001 greatest singles. So this record alone takes up two places in that list! Both sides are credited to "Little Richard And His Band."

Honey Cone

This is one of the group's harder singles to find, but I actually prefer it to their bigger hits.

Hanni El Khatib
2010, Innovative 1004
Genre: Garage/Psych
Talk about anachronisms! This artist shows a love for roots rock, with a delightful rockabilly-esque A side ("Dead Wrong") and a knock-em-dead blues rock/garage number with a heavy metal lead guitar on the flip. El Khatib does all the instruments but drums.

Deep Purple
1968, Tetragrammaton 1503
Genre: Hard Rock/Metal
On Deep Purple's first U.S. chart single, an epic cover of Joe South's "Hush" (originally recorded by Billy Joe Royal) is backed by a brooding, tuneful power pop track that will quickly become a favorite! Have a listen to the mp3 snippet in our "jukebox" to hear what we mean.

Clark Sullivan
1967, Romac 101
Genre: Other Northern Soul
This is a very special, very wonderful Northern Soul rarity. As far as I can determine, this is the singer's only release, the exact year of which is unknown... but clearly mid-1960s.

The Bee Gees
1969, Atco 6657
Genre: Power Pop
Love good melodies? You'll love this pair of tunes from the Bee Gees' "sensitive" period. I believe both tracks are from the trio's "Odessa" album. I decided that this fine 45 just doesn't get enough love, and you can hear why by taking a listen to the jukebox shippets of both tunes.

Rare northern soul classic... terrific two-sider. This flip has a particularly sweet beat.

Miracles
1960, Tamla 54034
Genre: Northern Soul, Motown Style
Now here's a real rarity, and a mighty strange one at that. When "Shop Around" was first released on Tamla 54034 in 1960, it had a different take of the song, which Motown quickly pulled from the market. Though this take has pretty much the same arrangement, it has a totally different Smokey Robinson vocal and totally different production approach. Unlike the hit version, this one is not awash in echo and the dynamics are richer. In addition, the electric guitar part shines through clearly at various places, especially the end of the second chorus. (Take a listen to the jukebox snippet.) Copies with this take are identified with the number H55518A-2 on the trail-off wax. What makes this copy strange is that it's a third pressing of "Shop Around," from around 1967. If Motown pulled the take quickly in 1960, why were they doing second and third pressings of it later on? In any case, it's unlikely that you've heard this version before, since it isn't found on reissues or compilation albums of the Miracles catalog.
