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!

Impressions
1965, ABC-Pmt. 10622
Genre: Deep Soul
Here's an especially beautiful copy of what may be Curtis Mayfield's greatest Impressions song. This is the first copy I've had in the store with Near Mint audio since opening in 2001! I celebrated by making an mp3 "snippet" of it for you to hear... Enjoy!

Sweet
1973, Bell 45361
Genre: Bubblegum
This hard-to-find 1973 Sweet single was released in Mono for the retail copies, but this promo has the full Stereo version as well... a real treat! Check it out in the mp3 "snippet" in our "jukebox" (click the blue "play" button).

Dazz Band
1984, Motown 1760
Genre: Funk/Hip-Hop/Go-Go
This dynamite Funk number was the last of four Top 10 Black/RnB hits for this group. It's specially edited from a 5:56 album track. Check out the mp3 "snippet" in our online "jukebox" (click the blue "play" button).

Vicki Bird
1988, 16th Avenue 70413
Genre: Country
This catchy number was the singer's biggest hit, but that's not saying much as it only peaked at #61 on the Billboard Country chart. Should have done much better!

Clint Black
1990, RCA 2520
Genre: Country
This terrific number was the singer's fourth straight #1 Country hit starting from his debut, "A Better Man." All were from his debut album, "Killin' Time."

Donovan
1966, Hickory 1417
Genre: Folk Rock
No, it didn't chart, but you've got to know this dynamite Donovan track... perhaps as covered later by the Soul Survivors? No? Take my word for it, you gotta have a copy of this one! Or wait! Have a listen to the mp3 "snippet" I just posted... what he achieves with that acoustic rhythm guitar is jaw-dropping, no?

Baby'O
1980, Baby'O 1003
Genre: Disco
This terrific dancer didn't chart, but it's well worth seeking out! The rhythm section is to die for, and the solo guitar and horn parts are really special. Have a listen to the mp3 "snippet" to hear for yourself.

Ray Price
1956, Columbia 21510
Genre: Country
Here's a beautiful copy of Ray Price's biggest hit, which sits at #421 on Dave Marsh's list of the 1,001 greatest singles. This is the first original pressing I've had in the store since opening in 2001! The audio is so good I had to make an mp3 "snippet" for you to hear... Enjoy!

Bangles
1986, Columbia 06257

This was the group's biggest hit, and one listen will explain why! The audio — and the music! — is so amazing I had to capture it for an mp3 "snippet"... Have a listen!

Bad Girls
1981, BC 4011
Genre: Disco
This studio group features Jocelyn Brown on lead vocals. They had no album, but the 12-inch single has a 7:30 version, and this 45 is labeled the "Short Version." I liked it so much I made an mp3 "snippet" for you to hear... check it out!

Silver Convention
1975, Midland Intl. 10339
Genre: Disco
This was the Convention's first hit single, and also their best! This is a copy of the second (and primary) pressing, which has a track length of 3:05 and "Tiger Baby" on the B side. (A less common earlier pressing has a track length of 3:45 and "Chains of Love" on the flip.) Both 45s have edited versions of the 5:31 album cut. I had to celebrate the great audio on this 45 with an mp3 "snippet" of it... Enjoy!

Glen Campbell
1989, Universal 66024
Genre: Rockabilly/Retro
This 1989 single was Campbell's last appearance on the Billboard Country Singles chart Top 10... a dynamite uptempo Rockabilly romp, more than worthy of 2 stars (our highest recommendation). Have a listen to the mp3 "snippet", which I hope you enjoy as much as I do!

Bobby Thurston
1980, Prelude 8009
Genre: Disco
This terrific, bright and catchy Disco number was the D.C. singer's only chart hit (modest though it was), but it deserved even more airplay, IMHO. Have a listen to the mp3 "snippet" of the A side.

This great single was Archie Bell (no Drells on this release) last chart single, and it's a whopper! Check out the mp3 "snippet" to hear the awesome rhythm section and arrangement.
