  • 45 45s

    I turned 45 a couple of weeks ago and had been pondering vinyl specific ways to mark the occasion (having failed to party on my 33 1/3rd birthday). As some of you may know and as I quickly found out on this forum, my 'I don't collect the little ones' position has been problematic/misunderstood/berated.

    I ran the following idea past Melter...

    You, collectively, give me a list of 45 45s I really should own and I spend my year of being 45 finding and buying them, at which point I might have a bit of a party and play them all. With that in mind the 45s need to be ones that you would/could 'play out', they also, my financial situation dictates, need to be findable and under a fiver.

    Melter thought it a good idea to the extent that when I saw him at the weekend he gave me a nice vintage 45s box for my birthday and inside it was The Tremeloes "(Call Me) Number One", with the killer B side "Instant Whip". This means that it has already started and what a great tune - thanks Melter. From my own tiny 45s collection I'd add to it with Cozy Powell's "And Then There Was Skin" as a way to set the tone (my taste). Hammonds, Flutes and instrumentals are in... anything after about 1976 is usually out.

    What do you suggest?

    Hammonds you say....

    This might fit the bill -



    Great idea BTW, hope you pull it off.

    *EDIT* Sorry just read the under a fiver bit! (The above can be picked up for about 15 Euro online with a bit of persistence.)

    Perhaps this Vulture cheapie might hit the spot then -

      Under a fiver party starters?

      Georgie fame - beware of the dog (b of ballad of Bonnie & Clyde)
      Shirley Ellis - Clapping Song
      Jimmy Soul - if you want to be happy
      Dusty Springfield - go head on
      DDDBM&T - he's a raver
      The tremeloes - let your hair hang down ( b of silence is golden)
      10cc - hot sun rock
      Earl van dyke - 6x6
      Etc.

      Most of these can still be found in charity shops

        A few more that are always in my DJ box:

        Stevie wonder: I wish
        Marvin Gaye: Give it up
        Curtis Mayfield: move on up
        War: me and baby brother
        War: low rider
        Stevie Wonder: boogie on reggae woman
        James Brown: obviously Sex Machine (too obviously?) so maybe Funky President instead?
        Mr Bloe: Groovin with mr Bloe /sinful (old vv classic, good 2 sider)
        Dave and angel Collins: double barrel (ace reggae)

        Shirley Ellis Clapping Song is one of the best 45s ever.

            thanks gentlemen

            so far the Paul Nicholas, War, !0cc, Mr Bloe and Georgie Fame tracks are hitting the spot... and me and Mrs DownHeavy have had a smooch around the lounge to Theola Kilgore.

            If there are more than 45 suggestions I'll have to get Melter in to curate/adjudicate

                  30+ copies of this on Discogs starting at 3 quid (ish). Super smashing ace double-sided Hammond groover.

                        chooooooon!

                        At the risk of turning this into a VG+ canon style thread, are these still UK/Euro cheapies?
