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!

Ollie Shepard, Gee 1044

Ollie Shepard
1957, Gee 1044
Genre: Rockin' RnB
Here's a beautiful promo copy of this to-die-for RnB rocker, in its original Gee Records factory sleeve. This 2-star recommendation (our highest), it's worth noting, falls in the category of "very short" tunes, clocking in at only 1:46!

Eddie Wood
1966, Perico 1258
Genre: Other Northern Soul
Here is a fantastic Northern Soul stomper with a clear Motown feel to it, but in my researching I can't find any source for the year of release. I'm guessing 1966.

Stevie Wonder, Tamla 1612
06/18/16
Stevie Wonder
1982, Tamla 1612
Genre: Funk/Hip-Hop/Go-Go
This special promo has a longer edit of the album cut than on the retail copies (which clocks at 4:56). Apparently, that edits out Stevie's "Harmonica Solo" which is restored in this 5:18 track. Keep in mind, however, that both of these are dramatically edited versions (found only on 45) of the somewhat-indulgent, more than-twice-as-long 10:27 album track! Surely this promo's edit, which is labeled as a "Special DJ Reservice" release, is the ultimate version... and the sound is sublime... pristine Mint! By the way, both this rarely heard single, and "That Girl" were non-album singles that were previously unreleased until gathered into Wonder's 2-album compilation released in 1982.

Don Covay & the Goodtimers
1967, Atlantic 2407
Genre: Other Northern Soul
This single's A side has a rhythm section that deserves its own spot in the Soul Hall of Fame — truly awesome! Have a listen to the mp3 "snippet" to hear what I mean.

Willie & The Handjives, Veep 1227

Willie & The Handjives
1966, Veep 1227

Carole Forrest, Atco 6295
06/15/16
Carole Forrest
1964, Atco 6295
Genre: Girl Group
The A side ("He's Awful Nice To Me") is a decent enough recording, but I think Carole would have had a better shot if radio programmers had focused on the B side instead, which I liked enough to make this one a Recommended single (one star). Have a listen to the mp3 "snippet" of "My Girlfriend"... Hope you like it as much as I do!

Joye E. Dunn, J&S 1425

Joye E. Dunn
1963, J&S 1425
Genre: Rockin' RnB
Here's another case where in the passage of time and according to taste, I think the real gem on this 45 is the B side — have a listen to the mp3 "snippet" to see if you like it as much as I do. It has some particularly nasty (in a good way) electric guitar picking aside Ms. Dunn's powerful vocals, and it swings something fierce!

Ginny Zee, Atco 6218

Ginny Zee
1962, Atco 6218
Genre: Girl Group
The A side is a terrific uptempo Girl Group number, rarely heard but deserving of better. Have a listen to the mp3 "snippet" I've added to our "jukebox"... note that the snippet edits out the slow intro (only because I prefer the fast bits :-).

Cranberries, Island 858172

Cranberries
1993, Island 858172
Genre: Modern Rock
This rarely seen 1993 single features both of the Cranberries first two hits, a common characteristic of 45s beginning in the 1990s. "Dreams" was actually their first hit, though only in the "Modern Rock" market as measured by Billboard. After "Linger" was a hit in the Pop market, "Dreams" saw new life in a re-release.

Devo, WB 49524

Devo
1980, WB 49524
Genre: Techno/Synth Pop
This early single was released from the same album and just before their breakthrough hit, 'Whip It.' Though it didn't get much radio play at the time, it's definitely one of their 'greatest hits.'

Elvis Costello and the Attractions
1979, Columbia 10919

One of Costello's very best Nick Lowe-produced singles, still not getting any love from radio airplay here in the U.S. in 1979.

The Maze
1967, Calla 135
Genre: Other Northern Soul
This single's A side ("Chained To Your Heart") is a terrific Northern Soul dancer cranked to the nines! The flip is perhaps not so great a dancer, but it's a terrific recording... have a listen to the mp3 "snippet" I've added to our online "jukebox!"

Bob Luman, WB 5172

Bob Luman
1960, WB 5172
Genre: Rockabilly/Retro
The top 10 hit on the A side ("Let's Think About Living") is a swipe at all the "death" songs then in vogue on pop radio. But for me, the real fun begins on the B side... sounding a little like Elvis (who didn't in 1960?), Luman and crew manage to deliver a fine rockabilly track, propelled by the great Boudleaux and Felice Bryant song.

Jethro Tull, Reprise 1054
06/04/16
Jethro Tull
1971, Reprise 1054
Genre: Hard Rock/Metal
Have a listen to the mp3 snippet of this one, and you'll understand why Jethro Tull mattered at this point in Rock history. They definitely made their contribution in this great track from their LP "Aqualung"! By the way, "Locomotive Breath" was revived (I don't know if it was a re-recording) and charted for the group in 1976 after they had moved to Chrysalis.

The Insiders
1967, RCA 9225
Genre: Other Northern Soul
This single's "Plug Side" is a fine Philly-Soul style ballad, but the real action is on the flip (how often do I say this in a day, I wonder?): "I'm Just A Man" is a terrific dancer well worth seeking out. Check out the mp3 "snippet" of the tune I just put in our online "jukebox!"

Sonny Stiles And His Kings Men
1965, Joy 299
Genre: Other Northern Soul
Most Northern Soul fans think the A side of this single ("Give A Little Bit") is what makes it special (and it is a good one!), but perhaps they never listened to the B side? Because "Here She Comes" is a stomping dancer you won't want to miss!

Lou Jordan
1961, Josie 888
Genre: Vocal Groups (Doo-Wop)
This delightful and rare Doo Wop single offers a nice ballad on the A side, but the real action is on the mid-tempo flip — which I liked so much right away I had to stick an mp3 "snippet" of it in our online "jukebox", so have a listen!
