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!

Nino Tempo And 5th Ave. Sax
1973, A&M 1461
Genre: Other Northern Soul
Here's a beautiful copy of one of Northern Soul fans' favorite dance numbers from the early 1970s. Have a listen to the mp3 "snippet," and you'll understand its appeal!

Johnny Nash

Besides the essential classic track on the A side ("I Can See Clearly Now"), be sure to check out the fine bit of reggae on the flip! Tasty!

Dobie Gray
1973, MCA 40010
Genre: Deep Soul
This is one of the most sublime recordings to come out of 1973. It's a song that everyone knows, but which has never been a huge hit for anyone. A few Country artists did fine covers — in particular, Sammi Smith's 1977 version — and if you do a search in iTunes, you'll find umteen covers by folks like the Dixie Chicks, Elvis Presley, Kris Kristofferson & Rita Coolidge, Kenny Rogers, Millie Jackson, and Irma Thomas. But frankly, this one beats 'em all — except perhaps for Sammi Smith's (he says, hedging).

1969, Mercury 72880
Genre: Other Northern Soul
Great song, great singing, great arrangement, great band! What can I say, this one is great all over.

Inez & Charlie Foxx
1967, Dynamo 112
Genre: Other Northern Soul
A real sleeper, this great track sneaks up on you and demands that you recognize how great it is. Eventually, you do... and you're hooked! Take a listen and hear for yourself.

Buddy Holly
1960, Coral 62352
Genre: Rockabilly/Retro
This 1963 release features the singer's amazing rendition of "Bo Diddley," which (heaven help me!) I actually like better than Bo Diddley's original. I'm putting a snippet in the jukebox ... see what you think!

Nirvana
1992, DGC 19120
Genre: Punk/Grunge
Not to be missed — and impossible to find — this was Nirvana's second single from "Nevermind," the followup to their breakthrough hit "Smells Like Teen Spirit." It is one of only two 45 rpm singles the group released in the U.S. before Kurt Cobain's untimely death broke them up.

The Chiffons
1963, Laurie 3212
Genre: Girl Group
This is a great copy of one of the Chiffons lesser-known 45's. Of course, one thing to learn about the Chiffons is that ALL of their 45's are great and well worth collecting.

The Staple Singers

This marvelous single was the group's first Top 40 pop hit, and their first Top 10 soul hit.
