This week I found in poor condition, but playable after cleaning on my VPI 16.5
Wild Weekend - The Rebels on Reo (later credited as The Rockin' Rebels) Bo Diddeley/True Love Ways - Buddy Holly on Coral I Saw Her Standing There/I Want to Hold Your Hand - The Beatles on original yellow/orange Capitol
Wild Weekend was probably the rarest of the bunch. I've always thought how amazing it was that rock guitar went from "Wild Weekend" to "Foxy Lady" in four years.
Always buying 45's of reggae musik. I'm DJ in Reggae Sound system who using vinyl only! Most of the brand new tune in this style still come out on the vinyl format. Got 1000+ 45's of all kind of reggae (dub, roots, ska, rock steady..) all buy in the last 10 years
And they still press all the old hits..but using the same matrix...so some time the quality is so so.
Take a look for the 45's on PECKINGS Label ... Old riddims (studio 1) with new singers
I bought a 45rpm single of "To Love Somebody" by Mule. I am working on a playlist for a party this summer of all cover songs. It'll be about 4 hours long. This song is only available on 45rpm. A friend recommended it and I found it online.
