We scour piles of old 45s for the very best in all Rock'n'roll and soul genres to feature snippets in our online jukebox. This podcast gets the jukebox to you in a great new way.

    China Grove by Doobie Brothers

    Label: WB 7728
    Year: 1973
    Condition: M-
    Last Price: $14.00. Not currently available for sale.

    It's hard to find Mint or Near Mint copies of this 1973 classic these days, but I did! Note: This beautiful copy comes in a vintage Warner/Reprise Records factory sleeve. It has Mint labels and pristine sound.

    Oye Como Va by Santana

    Oye Como Va by Santana

    Label: Columbia 45330
    Year: 1971
    Condition: M-
    Price: $12.00

    This essential Santana single is a Stereo edited version of the album cut (2:59 vs. 4:17). Check out the mp3 "snippet" of it, which is from our archives. Note: This beautiful copy comes in a vintage Columbia Records factory sleeve. It has pristine Mint sound.

    Up On The Roof by Laura Nyro

    Up On The Roof by Laura Nyro

    Label: Columbia 45230 dj
    Year: 1970
    Condition: M-
    Price: $25.00

    Stereo/Mono promo copy. What a gorgeous performance! I can't find a category that this fits in neatly in, so I keep going back and forth between jazz and soul. Oh well, I've made a snippet of part of the middle that I like best... enjoy! The snippet is in Mono, like the retail release, but this promo offers a full Stereo version as well! Note: This 45 record comes in a vintage Columbia Records factory sleeve. It has pristine Mint sound.

    Bitch by Rolling Stones

    Bitch by Rolling Stones

    Label: Rolling Stones 19100
    Year: 1971
    Condition: M-
    Last Price: $20.00. Not currently available for sale.

    This is one of the greatest of the Stones two-sided monster hits. Well, the B side didn't actually chart, but it's so great it really should have. Presumably, radio just wasn't ready to play a song called "Bitch" yet... though they were prepared by 1975 when Elton John hit the Top 10 with "The Bitch Is Back."
    OK, trivia time again... "Brown Sugar" was one of eight #1 U.S. singles by the Stones. The group also had eight chart-toppers in their native England, though over there they garnered all of those hits during the 1960s.

    Here is the list of the Stones' #1 U.S. singles:


    (I Can't Get No) Satisfaction (1965)
    Get Off My Cloud (1965)
    Paint It, Black (1966)
    Ruby Tuesday (1967)
    Honky Tonk Women (1969)
    Brown Sugar (1971)
    Angie (1973), and
    Miss You (1978)

    For comparison's sake, here are their #1 U.K. hits. You'll notice that the group gained monster popularity about a year earlier than they did in the U.S., same as the Beatles.


    It's All Over Now (1964)
    Little Red Rooster (1964)
    The Last Time (1964)
    (I Can't Get No) Satisfaction (1965)
    Get Off My Cloud (1965)
    Paint It, Black (1966)
    Jumpin' Jack Flash (1968)
    Honky Tonk Women (1969)

    Carnival by Azymuth

    Carnival by Azymuth

    Label: Milestone 308
    Year: 1979
    Condition: M
    Price: $10.00

    From a warehouse find, this is a new, unplayed stock copy. Terrific Funk instrumental... have a listen to the mp3 "snippet" we posted after loving the tune on first listen. :-) The B side is the song "Continued". The A side is edited from a 9:29 album track.

    May My Heart Be Cast Into Stone by Toys

    May My Heart Be Cast Into Stone by Toys

    Label: Dynovoice 218
    Year: 1966
    Condition: M-
    Price: $30.00

    This rarely seen Toys single is well worth seeking out, with a dynamite uptempo A side slice of Northern Soul. The A side ("May My Heart...") is a non-album cut. Have a listen to the mp3 "snippet" of it! Note: This beautiful copy has a small drillhole and comes in a vintage DynoVoice Records factory sleeve. It has pristine Mint sound.
