Did you just say 10,000 45's??? :shock: Am I hearing you right, rdreed? I hope my ears aren't deceiving me...They've been plugged up a little lately which tends to happen this time of year...

OK, if I DID just hear you right, first...WOW! =D> Then I need to know what kind of system you are using to organize and catalogue all these? What types of shelves and/or storage? And I'd love to see some pictures, if it's not too much trouble...I have 8,000+ of my own, as well as 12,000+ LP's, and am always looking for more inspiration and ideas on how to handle the enormity of it all...

Some days I feel downright sick, but I got the fever a long time ago :fever:, and apparently, there's still no cure for it now! I've just GOT to know what solutions you have tried, and what you are using now...I've been trying over the past month or two to get the 45' collection catalogued and in some type of order...How are you organizing the 45's, alphabetically, chronologically, by genre, or what? In boxes, or on shelves? I have the Orange CD program, which has helped get the LP collection under control, and now, I've been tackling the 45's...If you're really interested, you can see some of my latest pics here...

I even posted some stuff here...

If you're game, I would love to see some pics of your own collection...You might have some cool things I've never seen! As I said in one of the posts, I resized all my photos in Paint down to 500 pixels to make them easier to view...Still a work in progress, but I wanted to share some of my favorite rare finds...Like I said, if you're game, I'd love to see some of your collection...I'm sure many of us would... :D Feel free to post them on my gallery thread!

Boy, that goes back a LOT OF YEARS.... AND A LOT OF RECORDS. My first though was this:

Yellow Rose of Texas Mitch Miller Columbia 78. 1956 I think, I would have been 5.
Ivory Tower - Cathy Carr-Fraternity 78 next, followed by Wayward Wind -Gogi Grant -Era 78.

Breber's Music Elkhorn, WI was MY spot for over 30 years 78's thru 45's. While I broke the 78's as a kid, the music was replaced on 45, add the rockabilly, and doowop, and rnr 45's from the mid 50s through most of the 70's and you end up with 18,000 give or take a grand. That's what a life in records does for ya.
1978 found a great Seeburg 201 jukebox, still have it, fully restored now. Working on an old 45 only phonograph 1956 Voice of Music. Who knows what's next? :)

18,000? And I thought rdreed was bad! :shock: You've got to tell me your secrets and your system for keeping track of them all. For instance, where are you storing them, or should I say, how are you storing them? Have you catalogued them in any way, or are there just too many? :-k

In quick succession, I think it was Queen's Radio Gaga and I Want To Break Free, Duran Duran's The Rephlex, and FGTH's Relax.

My first 45rpm was John Lennon and Yoko Ono, War is Over (If you want it). I still have it and the vinyl is green in colour.

So now you know how old I am!

The first "45" that i bought myself with my own money was actually four and they cost me 69 each from Woolworths and they were: "One Step Beyond - Madness" (still one of the best tracks ever!), "Eton Rifles - The Jam", "On My Radio - The Selector" and "A Message To Rudy - The Specials"
I think they are still in my dads loft in a singles case to this day actually!

Never Marry A Railroad Man - Shocking Blue
or was it
Wang Dang Doodle performed by Livin' Blues? #-o
Both of them are from 1970 (when I was a kid of 9 years old) and still in my collection. I still like them =D>
